Machine Quilting Negative Space »
InstructionsThis pattern is called Springtime and is by designer Jacqueline de Jonge.
Type of item: Home Decor
I used a variety of 100% cotton and batik fabrics, Cotton batting and Batik wide-back backing.
What was your inspiration?
I took a workshop with the designer Jacqueline de Jonge. I love using batik fabric and bright colours and these two things are really her specialty.
What are you most proud of?
The whole thing :). I'm relatively new to quilting so this is the biggest quilt i've finished so far. I quilted it on my Janome. I loved quilting the swirls. I thought that they tied in well with the circular theme of the quilt and thanks to the Quilting Negative Spaces class on Craftsy I was confident to have a go.
It was my introduction to paper piecing and now i'm in love with that technique.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have a go. Paper piecing is not hard and there are classes here on Craftsy that teach the technique. You can also see Jacqueline demonstrate here paper piecing technique on The Quilt Show.
