Machine Quilting Negative Space »
Type of item: Functional
lap quilt kit from connecting threads, cotton thread
What was your inspiration?
Angela's designs are great and really fun to stitch! I found her book to be VERY helpful when it came time to work on the quilt, choose designs, and remember how to stitch them. My favourite designs to quilt were the pulleys & squares.
What are you most proud of?
I am very impatient and the quilting took a long time! I'm glad I finished it without resorting to meandering. I also did not pick out the squares I didn't like.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Practicing is obviously great but I'd say just go for it and start quilting a quilt. By the time I was done, I was much more comfortable with the designs and didn't even have to warm up. I really got into the flow with my machine (a domestic, not long arm) and got into a groove. I am seriously wanting to try a long arm now!
