Project

Autumn Leaves

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I actually finished it ... I started this quilt in March 2011 What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan out your quilt before starting to piece fabric together. Consider the engineering aspect, not just the design as lots of bias pieces make the quilt strechy and hard to keep flat when quilting.

What you will need

  • Quiliting cotton Bamboo batting

Q&A with zinc6

Jennifer Thomas asked:
Wow! This is fantastic! How long did it take you to make this quilt?
zinc6 answered:
Thanks Jennifer ... it took a little over 400 hours to complete over 18 months - mainly because had no plan for the quilt.
Wendy Butler Berns asked:
Wow... what an ambitious project... but good for you to jump into the original design... we learn by jumping in and figuring out the different technical challenges that come along... lovely fall colors!
zinc6 answered:
Thanks Wendy ... an overly ambitious project ... and boy did I learn alot about what dosn't work in quilting ... still it is finally finished now and my mom loves it.
