Style: Cute, Mod, Whimsical, Funky
Cotton quilting fabric, bright scraps, Heat and Bond, and yardage
What was your inspiration?
I was inspired by a pattern found in Fons and Porters Love of Quilting magazine. It took me several months to ponder my design. It isn't exactly like the one in the magazine. I've changed things around.
What are you most proud of?
I am quite happy with the summery bright quilt that resulted from my efforts. I finished the applique and piecing last year. It remains on my pile of UFO's waiting to be quilted.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just because you start a project today doesn't mean it has to be finished tomorrow. Variety is the spice of life. I'm now inspired to sandwich this quilt and get started on hand quilting it. Someone I know would love to own this quilt.
