Block No 8

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Not quilting myself into a corner I couldn't get out of! I rather like these snakey paisleys (and the other paisleys) as they give quite a professional look (in my case, only if you don't look too closely!). The back also looks quite interesting. I didn't quilt over the fairy for obvious reasons. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Relax your shoulders - it's easier if you do!

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • polyester thread and wadding.

Q&A with patz in suffolk

K Lee 2Strings asked:
Love your snaky paisley! You will enjoy this quilt so much when it's finished!
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you. I think I may spend a lot of time looking at all my faults once it's finished rather than the good bits!
marianna2011 asked:
Love this and your quilting - the fairy in the middle is so cute
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you. The fairies weren't part of my original scheme of things, but I wanted something to fussy-cut to make a focal point here and there and fairies were the only pictures I could find that were small enough! I think it has worked though.
Caraline2 asked:
lovely, i seem to have lost my mojo with quilting, having trouble with my latest project, will show when its unpicked and re done. might be that I dont have my machine at the moment and are using a different machine, Im sure it does make a difference
patz in suffolk answered:
I've had trouble with one of my blocks too but not this one, which was one of the easiest (so far). Been struggling with the "rogue" one this afternoon, but think I've beaten it. Will post piccie shortly. Hope you get your machine and your mojo back soon!
HeatherIsaacson asked:
Awsome quilting. It takes my breath away.
patz in suffolk answered:
This one wasn't too difficult - if you quilt yourself into a corner, it's quite easy to bluff your way out of it agaqin!
