Design It, Quilt It: Free-Form Techniques »
Type of item: Home Decor
This was my first "project" after practicing feathers and scribbles. I used a 10 inch wreath template with a partial template for the corner designs. The fabric is basic muslin. Batting recipe: bamboo/cotton with 1/2 layer of Hobbs wool batting. Design is quilted with 70 wt poly quilting thread, cream. Background was stitched with 40 wt poly, celery green. While "scribbling" I practiced feathers and ribbon candy designs. What fun!!!
What was your inspiration?
Cindy's class gave me the ideas for this project. Normally I would simply quilt the wreath and leave it at that. I understand more of what makes a quilt interesting!
What are you most proud of?
My husband said he would like to see this practice piece framed after it is finished!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Relax and have fun, this is therapy afterall!
