New Yok City Mixed-Up Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm proud that I actually finished it. I was concerned about doing the actual quilting. But all went well and I am happy with the quilting I did. I love how the final quilt looks. Looking at it makes me smile. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you haven't already, watch the online course. Then just go for it and have a bunch of fun. Just keep all cuts and seams as straight as possible. I do not have the binding tool that Jenny mentions in the video, but am thinking it would have made my binding finish a lot easier ana smoother.

What you will need

  • 1 'New York City' charm pack by City Quilters
  • NYC
  • Cotton batting
  • cotton fabric and thread for backing and binding -
