Project Description

What are you most proud of? I really loved creating different patterns with the fabrics I had on hand and just experimenting on design and colour. I am pleased I was able to use up little practice blocks and lots of fabric from my stash. I was also able to use up some wadding from other projects. I am pleased how my Diamond, Starburst and Lattice Designs turned out... great class. What advice would you give someone starting this project? These are great for using up lots of your stash and great gifts. Also they are perfect size for practicing fmq. Dot-to-Dot Quilting is an excellent class with lots of ideas. For number 1 and 3 I used my Darning foot and number 2 and 4 I used my Walking foot (you can easily tell)

What you will need

  • Cath Kidston Fabric from my stash and little practice blocks (disappearing four patch and pinwheel)
