100% cotton fat quarters, and Warm and Natural cotton batting. This was a fun project! I started this quilt in September and finished the second week of December. Just in time for giving as a Christmas gift.
What was your inspiration?
I love the colors of Autumn and wanted to reflect that in this quilt. I also love birds, so when I saw the bird house design in a short workshop on here, I incorporated it in the back. I free motion quilted, and for being a first time of doing this I must say it was a little physical trying to manipulate it in my machine, but well worth the time and effort. I didn't have to pay someone else to quilt it for me.
What are you most proud of?
I did it all myself!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun with it and enjoy the experience and journey!
