Not Your Grandmother's Flower Garden

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I finished it! A king-size quilt on my "normal" sewing machine. Must admit, I have a very nice machine with a large throat, so that helped. But, using the split batting technique taught in the class was great; it worked quite well. I'm also proud of the design, as it is all my own. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the class! The techniques for spray basting, splitting the batting and deciding how to split up the quilt were key to my being able to finish this.

What you will need

  • Batik Fabrics
  • high-loft polyester batting

Ann, thanks for your class, and the help with deciding on how to split up this quilt.
Diane Doiron asked:
How did you make your flowers?? Did you have a pattern or create your own template?? I have alot of fabric stash this would work for me!
cat-on-a-mac answered:
I did a tutorial on another site (http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutorials-f10/11-minute-flower-t130446.html) You should be able to link to it, even if you are not registered on that site.
