Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Home Decor
I used leftover materials from a batik quilt that I made for my son, and some extra fabric that I bought.
What was your inspiration?
I became very interested in the blocks that Amy Gibson taught on the Block of the Month class...I loved this pattern and as I said, had some leftover batiks from a quilt made for my son in Mar.-Apr. He was running in the Atacama Crossings 2012 race in Chile over 150 miles in the desert and wanted him to have something to remember his accomplishment with.
What are you most proud of?
It was one of the first times I did the quilting on my own machine, at least bigger than pillow size, and devised the design myself...not perfect but very attractive.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just begin, and use fabrics that you love!
