Chasing Summer

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Originally I sashed the centre of the quilt and it looked terrible, so I unpicked it, removed the sashing, and reassembled it - worth the effort as it looks much better. I didn't start with a 'plan' - it just 'grew' at every stage and I'm quite pleased with the result. Also, I'm happy with the FMQ I did on the borders - getting better with practice :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's liberating not to have a plan - give it a go...

Q&A with quilt-a-lot

Pamillia asked:
WOW! This would not be my pick to make, BUT, I am so glad you did. Because it is a terrific quilt. I really like it & you did a beautiful job. Well done. Great color. Thanks ever so for sharing. :-)
quilt-a-lot answered:
Thanks Pamillia. The centre didn't quite turn out as I had imagined and I struggled with what to do to improve it. I gave it to my elderley, but rather funky, Aunt this morning and she was thrilled.
K Lee 2Strings asked:
So striking! I love the blue you have chosen. The multiple borders frame the colorful center so well. I like the way the flying geese border breaks up the simplicity and adds motion.
quilt-a-lot answered:
Thanks 2strings. It actually looks so much better when it is on the bed - the colours brighten my aunts room and the nurses always comment on it. It makes her happy.
