Allybelle's Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Getting done on time! I gave it a moderate difficulty rating because I'm just starting out with machine quilting. I did not have a pattern, but used Jenny Doan's pinwheel technique, made up the rest of the design and added a piano key border cut from a charm pack. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just start sewing! My project has tons of ugly practice stitches, but the recipient and everyone who saw it loved it. Sew for fun and forgive your mistakes! Really, nobody else cares about them.

What you will need

  • Cotton quilting fabric (Precious by Windham Fabrics & Kona cotton solids)
  • Warm & White cotton batting
  • Superior Threads Highlights in white
