Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Quilt
Style Art, Casual, Funky, Retro / Vintage, Whimsical

What materials did you use? Fabric, décor bond, batting, thread.


So, I learned a few things. Like follow the advice and find a way to stand back from it and take a good look. Don't be afraid to change out something and also... do all this before you fuse it done. :) Now ask me if I did this... :)

Funny! the story behind it I mean :) Love your colors! haven't started mine yet, watching the class & finishing a few w.i.p.'s that are gifts! Can't wait to start, will heed your & Wendy's advice (I'm more like you - learn lessons after doing it my way - hah!)

You know, this was one of the first classes I took a few years ago and I've just now started to learn enough free motion work that I finally got back around to the projects. And yeah, I tend to do it my way first. Like, for instance, taking a free-motion class before taking an actual QUILTING class. Pah! Details, detials. :)

we learn lots along the way... the learning will continue with each project we work on... I love the poka dots and plaids in the background fabrics

This project has been in hold while I learned to free motion quilt. Finally got around to few-motion zig zagging with the mono-poly today. That was huge, frankly. Dropping the feed dogs goes against the laws of nature! But I'm doing okay. Was going to try and appliqu in a medium blue patch on the right side but have changed mind. I'm just going to love it like you love it's not off balance and consider it a learning experience. So... Having said all that... I've got some issues where the stem doesn't quite meat the leaves and the leaves meet the stem but it's messy. Anyone have any suggestions for a good cover up? I guess I could thread sketch around the entire stem are and see if that might detract from it. I feel a redo coming on. :)
