Strawberries and hearts

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Garden trellis Link to website or photo www.quiltroom.co.uk/acatalog/copy_of_copy_of_copy_of_Jelly_Roll_Quilts.html What are you most proud of? I love how much my mum and aunts love this soft little quilt! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Starch!!! This is quite an easy quilt, but because the blocks all end up with bias seams, it can be a stretchy affair, so I used a whole tin of spray on starch once I'd sewn the jelly roll strips into fours. It made constructing the quilty fairly accurately a lot easier.

What you will need

  • The lovely ladies at the Quilt Room in Dorking did the longarm quilting. I used Moda's 'Sent with Love' jelly roll
  • designed by Deb Strain.

Q&A with Petal18

JC Phillips asked:
Very nice! I love the colors. I did notice the quality in the free motion quilting, I had thought you may had done that yourself. Good Job! And thanks for the Tip....Starch!
Petal18 answered:
Thank you! My next big challenge is to learn to quilt my own projects - I have a real block against quilting it myself, which I'm hoping to overcome with my next small quilt... The course on quilting is helping a lot!
