Fall in the City Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am very impatient and the quilting took a long time! I'm glad I finished it without resorting to meandering. I also did not pick out the squares I didn't like. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practicing is obviously great but I'd say just go for it and start quilting a quilt. By the time I was done, I was much more comfortable with the designs and didn't even have to warm up. I really got into the flow with my machine (a domestic, not long arm) and got into a groove. I am seriously wanting to try a long arm now!

What you will need

  • lap quilt kit from connecting threads
  • cotton thread

Darns asked:
Great job! I agree with you - you can practice only so long then must do a quilt to really get FMQ.

QuiltDude asked:
Great quilt. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was Connecting Threads. You did a terrific job. And I actually have the same Angel Walters book as you I think - I recognize each quilt design. You mixed and matched them all and they all look wonderful and work beautifully in your quilt. I really like everything about this project!
