What are you most proud of?
My FIRST EVER completed quilting project from start to finish!!! And finished in the nick of time for Mum Mother's Day pressie lol. First time ever using a walking foot... first time lots of things!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Learn to walk before you can run... if you try something different to the original pattern and it doesn't work then find an easy way to cover up your stuff up and still finish it so it's presentable... Mum will never know lol.
I wanted to use a fancy stitch to secure the binding so I sewed it to the back but then found it was too thick. Ended up hand sewing the front side... but that was ok coz I'm a neat hand stitcher (thank goodness lol) The other bit I had trouble with was sewing the 2 ends of the binding together... completely stuffed up in the end but just had enough to fold one end over neatly on top. I'll be back to tackle the binding trick another day... I'm not giving up... just ran out of time this round. Yes there will be more trivets too... I'm addicted!
