Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm enjoying the "feel" and "look" of the tear drop fill. Easy to rotate and navigate to cover the large sash areas. Quilting each color square in a different, improvisational pattern happens so fast. Anybody out there a fan of zentangle? Very relaxing, quick, and creative. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Zentangle: Check out available online YouTube videos about "Zentangle." You'll be amazed how much similarity there is between free motion quilting and zentangle drawing. It will inspire you. Sewing/Crafting Books: The two main fabric stores where I shop have 40% off one item coupons almost weekly. Its a great way treat yourself to book.

What you will need

  • Lake Blues and Greens printed cotton fabrics with ivory cotton sash and border.

Q&A with Shoestring

Patti DelSoldato asked:
Just took my first class on free form quilting. It's got me motivated to really practice and do a nice quilt. You free form quilt is beautiful with feathers and spirals.
Shoestring answered:
Hi Patti. I'm looking forward to you posting your free form quilting projects. You are right--a great class always pays off and keeps us motivated. Thanks for your kind words about my work. Best wishes.
