What was your source for this quilting project?
Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo I Love Terriers Valentine Quilt
What materials did you use? 100% cotton quilt fabric; polyester batting; 100% cotton thread; invisible nylon thread
What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the whimsical shape of my terrier appliques, combined with the fabric pattern and color choices. The machine piecing and quilting are very well done.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Draw a shape you like and design a quilt around it. Some quilters called applique "the A word". But it's fun and easy to do on a sewing machine. Just use fusible webbing and stitch your appliques by machine with good quality cotton or rayon thread and the right width of satin stitch. Make sample blocks until you feel comfortable with the technique.
