What was your inspiration?
I had never participated in a BOM before & I was a 1.5 year beginner. Looked like a great opportunity! And it was!
What are you most proud of?
I think the thing I am most proud of is actually completing all the blocks. Putting it together was pretty routine.
Quilting the quilt following Leah Day's FMQ videos was tedious but very rewarding. I think I wore out the rewind slide bar ! Lol. Needless to say, my quilt is completed and I love it. It is now living over my railing, by the front door, for all to see, including me!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
To start this project I think you need to buy all the fabric needed, especially the background yardage. Taking Leah's class was a great chance to see how she tackles all the different stitches, so you might budget for that type of quilting technique class.
Otherwise, smile, relax, quilt & gain many new friends through Craftsy! :-)
