Paisley Practice

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When sketching, I kept accidentally sketching in a spiral path in an effort to fill in gaps, but I'd find myself trapped. I discovered that if I systematically removed my pins by rows from my quilt sandwich and tried to quilt across and back, this wouldn't happen.

What you will need

  • Small quilt sandwich (around fat quarter size)
  • regular sewing machine.

Q&A with Amatricis

Angela Walters asked:
Great job!! You know you have done a good job when it looks good in contrasting thread...bravo!!
Amatricis answered:
Thanks! I think I'll back my next one with white so I can see the blending on one side and the contrast thread on the other. It'll be good motivation :)
jobeard@onlinemac.com asked:
Very good, you're making me want to do more practice work.
Amatricis answered:
It took me the longest just to pin the sandwiches! I'm thinking of getting some fusible batting instead of using my cotton batting scraps.
