This is totally out of the scrap box
What was your inspiration?
While looking through my fabric stash, trying to decide what to use in this project, I found quite a few charm squares left over from a previous project and some my friend gave me when she finished her project. She does not keep a scrap box (I KNOW!!) so asked her for her leftovers. Kimberly made her quilt using batiks, I have none, as I don't care for batiks. So I just used the Moda Kansas Troubles and a few Thimbleberries thrown in. I must say, I think it came out pretty good :D
What are you most proud of?
You do not have to make a carbon copy of the instructor's project. As I said, batiks are not my favorites, so I used what I had and made the project truly my own.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Get some sharp scissors, because you do more cutting and ironing than sewing. It is a bit bulky to sew together, but proceed carefully and you can do it!
