My "Almost Finished" quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I was able to free motion quilt the entire quilt without ripping out more than a dozen stitches - and those were only when the bobbin ran out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! you are only limited by your own doubts. Be fearless and fly. Don't judge your work based on the other quilts in the gallery. Only you can make your quilt. With time and practice yours will be as good, or perhaps better. Remember that you must practice.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric and batting
  • polyester thread.

QuiltDude asked:
Great looking quilt, but I really love the advice to not be scared and just go for it. Thank you for sharing. Oh, and your FMQ is awesome, by the way. :-) :-) :-)
Gene B answered:
Thanks "Dude" just think of it as fun.
scominos asked:
Looks great! I'm still practicing my beginning stitches. I'm too afraid to actually start quilting my top yet. lol.
Gene B answered:
I hope you are practicing on "quilt sandwiches" that use the same type fabric and batting as your quilt. That will really make it work better when you work on your real quilt
Polarjo asked:
Nice job, Gene. I really like your colors. And is that variegated thread I see? I just started quilting mine today. Five blocks down, forty-four to go. :-)
Gene B answered:
Yes, I "disobeyed" and used it. I didn't have breakage from it.
