Golf Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was probably the 4th or 5th quilt I quilted on my machine frame, so I was still learning (actually, 5 years later, I'm still learning :-) - so it was challenging quilting the large blocks - I wanted to outline quilt a lot of the scenery so it would "pop", which meant a lot of stopping and starting. But I am really proud of the final result, and my father in law loved his quilt - which is always the goal! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Let the fabric take you wherever it wants you to go.

What you will need

  • cotton fabric
  • polyester batting

Q&A with Marie Flannery

Betsy0 asked:
Sound advice for sure. My quilts too lead me where they want to go. That's why it necessary to shop often, it's soothing just to touch the fabric. There's nothing wrong with being an optimistic fabric-holic, lots of people benefit--and it keeps you out of the bars.
Marie Flannery answered:
LOL - so true. It also gives you an excuse to spend entire weekends in your pajamas! :-)
