Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine »
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Traditional, Classic
What was your inspiration?
My grandma did the hard part of this quilt and hand-pieced the dresden plates back in the 50s or 60s. They were originally on a pink background the same as in the center but she never put the blocks together because she didn't like the overwhelming pink. I've re-appliqued them onto the cream and now I'm getting ready to quilt it. I'm doing it in smaller sections because of some of the quilting I want to do with a walking foot that would be difficult manouvering a whole quilt. I'm also going to add some borders once the center is done.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Spray basting is awesome. This is the first project I've done with spray baste and I'm never going back to pins.
