Project Description

What are you most proud of? quilting the layers together, it was my first attempt at free motion quilting. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I started with 8" squares and cut them into 4 pieces. Some I made into 5 pieces. I then mixed them all up and sewed them together. My advice is to make gentle sloping curves. If the curves are to steep it will be a lot harder to sew. Have lots of patience because all the curves will take a lot of time to sew. Be creative! You could do so much with this idea.

What you will need

  • I used colorfull prints in complementary colors. I used a butterfly stencil and used chalk to draw the design on and then free motion quilted the design.
