Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? I cut scraps into strips and joined them like a jelly roll, ending up with a very long rectangle. I then cut this in half, but still wasn't happy, so I slashed them adding bands of colour, allowing me to use some interesting quilting patterns to enhance the quilts. of

What are you most proud of? Making 2 quite distinctive and interesting quilts from something I was disappointed with.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Never be afraid to take risks with the design of a quilt, even if it means cutting into it.

I love your lemonade from lemons :-) No, seriously... you have two wonderful quilts to be proud of. So contemporary, fresh and modern. You've inspired me!

Some of my greatest inspiration has come from other quilters who are prepared to take risks. I'm so pleased I have inspired you WasaNewbieJean.

I'm grateful to Eva Larkin Hawkins for her on line class "Machine Quilting Beautiful Borders", which taught me how to adjust a pattern to fit different spaces. This made such a difference to these quilts.

Thank you Desna. I have so much fun now that I've started doing free motion quilting. It can make such a difference to a quilt in such a short time.

I love the diamond design quilting in the yellow. It fits the quilt perfectly!! Well done!!

Thank you Eva. I really enjoyed your on line course and can't wait to apply some more of your designs to my quilts.
