Too Much FMQ Fun!

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The designs mostly look OK and the stippling is not bad! What advice would you give someone starting this project? still need to work on spacing, starting after a stop & straight lines I'll want to make a similar project to try out some ideas for varying some of these designs. I made this quilt a rectangle by doing a 8 x 6 layout and eliminated one of my least favorite of the designs in the class.

What you will need

  • My hand dyed fabrics
  • cotton fabric for sashing & backing
  • Aruifil thread for piecing
  • Isacord & Bottomline thread for quilting
  • Quilter's Dream Cotton batting

skowron5 asked:
Beautiful. You sure did a great job in a short time.
Darns answered:
Thank you! I kept saying "just one more design"
QuiltDude asked:
This is really wonderful. I like it better than Leah's (Sorry, Leah). The colors are so bright, almost neon, they really glow against the background. You hand dyed, you say? Very impressive. I must confess I was feeling kind of blah about this class but you just got me to sit up and pay attention with your version of this project. :-) :-) :-)
Darns answered:
Thanks a lot, QuiltDude! I think Leah used dark, dull colors so the quilting would show better. These colors are a lot more fun!
QuiltDude asked:
... Oh, and your quilting is perfect! The designs are really showcased in each color block and they all look really really, really good.
