In Craftsy's first-ever Block of the Month, Amy Gibson brings you 10 specific quilting techniques - appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more.
What materials did you use?
It's still a good idea though! Run with it! Remember that many mistakes end up becoming some of best work. :D
They are not mistakes - they are learning experiences. Love the block and it could go right into your BOM when you are ready.
I have a few "inspiration" blocks from the BOM also. Haven't tried anything yet, just thought I would wait until the end and see what I have!! LOL Aren't we having fun? You did a good job with them.
This is my first ever quilt and I have no idea what its going to be like putting on the back. I only have a normal sewing machine so I am hoping it will be big enough in December! lol I am having a great time with it, just hope my blue and brown hold out so that there is some in every block as I have had it a long time and I'm not sure if I could get anymore.
This is my second quilt top. I made the first after a visit to the Quilt Show in OKC, and bought the three yards and a pattern kit. I could tell that my points were much better by the end than they were in the beginning! Then I saw the Craftsy BOM and thought I would give it try. Less pressure since there is a month to do the blocks!! LOL Good Luck on the fabric. I am using mostly from my stash, but have found some things to coordinate with it.
Clever of you to rescue your block like that - it's surprising how what we think are mistakes can turn quite easily into something worthwhile! Don't worry about quilting on a small machine - I assure you it's very possible. I quilted a large, double-sided quilt on a tiny Frister & Rossmann Cub 4 without any trouble when I first started quilting.
thanks for the great info and support. I signed up to the craftsy class, big quilts,small machines but still haven't had the courage and make the excuse I haven't got time yet. Hopefully I will get them done before xmas
