Project

For Anjella's Mom

What are you most proud of? Planning the layout and design myself. I scanned the fabrics into the computer then using a photo program, made the blocks to scale and arranged them until they looked good. I actually hate this method of making a quilt. It's stiff when done and all the top-stitching is a pain.

You Can Make This

TerryChase made For Anjella's Mom with:

  • Batiks and an African print. Cotton batting. This used the Quilt As You Go concept. In other words
  • each block was cut out
  • sandwiched

Q&A with TerryChase

quilt-a-lot asked:
This is a beautiful quilt - I can see the enormous amount of work in the sashing. Quilt-as-you-go does seem a good idea when you start and then when it's done - but in between; I'm not so sure. Well done - it is very neat and the colours/fabrics are striking.
TerryChase answered:
Thanks. It's a bit stiff. Regular quilting is softer.
