Completed BOM 2012 Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm proud that the whole quilt is my work - from start to finish. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Ann Petersen gives you a lot of helpful information for how to handle a large quilt on a small machine. Her advice and illustration gave me confidence to keep at this, and learn how to do it. It takes time, but I AM REALLY PROUD that I machine-quilted this myself. (YAY!!!)

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • thread
  • and batting.

Q&A with Northwoods Pat

Ann Petersen asked:
Yay! Nothing like a project that is yours from start to finish. Wonderful job!!
Northwoods Pat answered:
Thanks! I agree on the "start-to-finish" making the difference in my own mind about really owning the whole thing. (Thanks for giving me enough confidence to do it through your course, Ann!)

Oh Pat! This is exquisite! Congratulations! I love the sashing - so inventive. You've inspired me to finish mine. Gotta get going with Ann's class...
Northwoods Pat answered:
You are doing amazing things! I checked out your projects and you are so inspiring!
patz in suffolk asked:
You are absolutely right to be proud of yourself - this is a truly magnificent quilt! The colours are lovely and the piano-key border just finishes it off beautifully. Clever you, to quilt the whole thing on a domestic machine - I had to resort to the quilt-as-you-go method so I think I probably need Ann's course!
Northwoods Pat answered:
It's still pretty hard to wrestle the huge thing on a domestic machine, even though the harp on mine is a little bigger than most.... and I DO recommend Ann's course for great ideas and just getting the confidence to do it
LadyReed asked:
Looks great! I love the border on it.
Northwoods Pat answered:
Thanks so much!
