Wallace's Cathedral throne cover

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I like the colors. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The good: Wallace has another cover for his chair I didn't need to buy any material to try this pattern I like doing these little projects that still have a use. It gives an opportunity to try a pattern without committing to a whole quilt. I can practice free motion quilting. The bad: Years old WonderUnder is very stiff - should have used my Lite Steam A Seam 2 Lots of tracing & fusing The ugly: My free motion quilting - - sigh - - must do lots of practice

What you will need

  • Batik scraps
  • Isacord thread
