FMQ Practice Lap Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Now that the quilt is in use, I don't seem to see all the mistakes I made! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Quote by Leah Day: "Turn on funky music that makes you want to dance!"

Q&A with abanabana

hydeeann asked:
it's adorable! love it. what a great record of your learning.
abanabana answered:
Thank you so much! There was hardly any work involved in cutting and piecing the top. It made it so much easier to dedicate it as a practice piece without trying too hard to make it perfect at the first try but rather to have fun.
K Lee 2Strings asked:
What a great way to practice! This is an awfully cute little quilt and your FMQ looks super!
abanabana answered:
Thank you very much my friend. The whole experience with FMQ is still somewhat like driving a left hand vehicle on the wrong side of the road in the middle of Culcutta.
Diamondgirl asked:
I love your quilt! Looks like your little reader does also!
abanabana answered:
Thank you Diamondgirl! Its wonderful getting these little feedbacks! I made so many pictures of the quilt outside and inside but came back to the first few photographs I took of our son in our bed early in the morning. The light and atmosphere was just right to capture the quilt in a picture.
