Stephanie's Postcard from New York Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? One of the jelly roll strip had a nick which only became visible after washing the quilt top. I had made a little embroidery stamp while practicing on my Bernina, and it became the perfect patch! As a result, the quilt's name is "Postcard from New York" ! I enjoyed figuring out the circular quilt pattern, learning to use a guide attached to the quilt foot, and learned about zig-zag presser feet which made attaching the binding a much speedier task. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun! I didn't like the way the strips turned out the first time, so I unpicked the middle row, turned the top half around and re-attached it. It was also fun choosing a backing and binding which make the quilt my own.
