Phone Book Quilts

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The fact that I machine quilted for the first time, and it turned out not too badly! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I had it to do over, I would have stuck with the lightning bolt style layout, but this one has its appeal

What you will need

  • Recycled cotton shirts and skirts
  • remnants of other quilt and sewing projects

Q&A with CrystalJTK

Pepper Cory asked:
Yahoo on this modern take on the Phone Book quilt! Love the red and turquoise juxtaposition plus the grey/blue print. You have a daring sense of color--look forward to your other creations!
CrystalJTK answered:
Thank you, Pepper - I machine quilted for the first time - 3/4" apart echo style over the entire surface. Learned how not to do a few things, but am still pleased. It is a bit stiff - think the batting I used and density of the quilting was the cause. Perfect for a floor blanket to put a baby on. :)
