Beyond Basic Machine Quilting »
Type of item: Accessory
Cotton fabric, 80/20 batting, variegated thread
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a quick-pieced quilt for a friend's first grandchild, but I wanted an opportunity to practice my new free motion quilting skills. This big, beautiful floral print in Hannah's mom's favorite color was perfect, also because it hides all of my mistakes!
What are you most proud of?
The quilting - and that I used 20-year-old fabric from my stash for the backing.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Big prints hide many miscues in free motion quilting!
