2nd Quilt I ever finished

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Finishing them! The Simplici-T 3 quilt was my very first finished quilt. The fabric is from a color coordinated fat quarter bundles. I chose the fabrics for 2nd finished quilt (Around the Corner). What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take care when planning your fabric placement. Make sure its what you want BEFORE cutting. I intended to place the print where the blue is. I think it would look better that way. As is I think the blue is too prominent. I am very happy with the fabric placement in the 2nd quilt.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric yardage
  • fusible batting. Walking foot for quilting.

great job for a 1st quilt, love the colors, i hope you are hooked on quilting, thanks for sharing :)
NanaJeanFL answered:
Thanks qulady! I am MORE than hooked on quilting. I'm having a ball with BOM and getting inspired.
Darns asked:
I like it! but then aqua is my favorite color. Congrats on finishing! That's a huge step in quilting. Don't let the UFOs pile up too much! You'll learn something with every quilt.
NanaJeanFL answered:
I have two more tops I'm determined to finish soon. One is from a kit I got on sale. The other is my 2nd 3-fabric quilt.
AlyxRansom asked:
I like this very much. So, with fusible batting you didn't have to "quilt" the top? Is that right? Pretty ambitious for a first-quilt project. (Says the woman who is doing this BOM as her first project... lol.)
NanaJeanFL answered:
Hi Alyx- Well, I did "some" quilting. I used stitch in the ditch with invisible thread to outline each of the blue pinwheels. Glad you like it. I'm now super impressed knowing BOM is your 1st project! You're doing great!
