Sample Quilt - Negative space

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The flowers. I think I'm doing pretty good at those on my practice quilt. I am very proud of my jigsaw quilt that I just finished piecing. It will be folding nicely on a chair in my sewing room until I have the confidence to quilt on it. After a few more practice quilts. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just jump right in and try it. Don't get discouraged if you can't make it look the same as Angela's right away - or ever! She has logged thousands of hours on her machine and millions of stitches - so much of this is muscle memory and confidence. Give it a try! It's totally addicting and way fun!

What you will need

  • I am practicing long arm quilting techniques and designs for the first time on my new long arm machine.

wow! i'm so jelly! what kind of long arm do you have? angela makes it look easy but i bet it's scary the first time! how long have you been quilting? did you start on a home machine? your quilting looks great for your first time!!!! keep us posted!
Tiffanyquilts answered:
Thanks!! I have only been quilting for about three days on my new machine - it's and HQ Avante. Before that I would quilt on my Bernina with the feed dogs lowered. This is definately very different - and fun. Angela's instruction is awesome and I have watched several parts of the class over and over to get the motions down. Still a lot of work ahead, but I'm just enjoying the flow! Thanks for the nice comments! :)
