Amy Gibson BOM/ Leah Day FMQ Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am proud that I quilted and most of it looks pretty good. Leah encouraged us not to rip out every mistake because we were learning to quilt not rip. I think that is a wonderful concept. Cause there are many MANY mistakes in this quilt. But it is my first FMQ quilt and though I"ve made stitch in the ditch quilts, I now feel like I can do anything! I have 3 more tops to quilt that I was afraid of but now I can't wait to baste and go for it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I put my iPad right next to my sewing machine. I listened, relistened, and did what the instructor was teaching as she taught it, pausing when I needed. I wasn't crazy about one of the blocks so I did another. By the end of the quilting, I had added a border and I enjoyed quilting that......freely! No marking etc and it isn't perfect, but I'm loving it! AND listen to Leah. She teaches so many fabulous techniques, keeps you at ease, and is just so generous and kind. She was also very responsive to requests in the classroom. OH.......and just quilt! Don't rip out every mistake. She even talks about how to make things look like they were not an accident but an on purpose!
