What was your inspiration?
I love my little nephew... He is going to school this year, so I decided to make him a twin size quilt. Like for an adult person.
What are you most proud of?
I succeded to manage a quilt wich is 204*143 cm (80*56 inches) on my home machine for the first time! It was a challenge, but i did it!
Many thanks to my Craftsy instructors: Jenny Doan for her Quilting Quickly Course and Wendy Butler Burns for her Machine Quilting Course!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is just a fear when you start a big size quilt... Though, your eyes are afraid of it, your hands do it!
It's hard to start, but it's such a comfort to see your finished work. And great pleasure to see that your gift is valued by the recepient.
I made it for my dear nephew's birthday. He liked it very much, not just as a blanket, but also as a map for his games (he's 7)!
