What was I thinking?

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Problem solving! When I sewed the strips together I started at the top and sewed down - all 40 or so of them. I ended up with a huge twisted mess (won't be making this error again). From this mess I managed to create a perfectly 'square' rectangle quilt - quite a challenge. Go me!! Also, this was one of my first attempts to 'free motion' the quilting and i'm quite pleased with this too.

What you will need

  • I used a Jelly-roll of batik fabrics.

Q&A with quilt-a-lot

K Lee 2Strings asked:
Love it! The rainbow effect is wonderful. Sometimes it really pays off to step outside of our comfort zones. The same old palette can get monotonous, and bit of a shake-up can help us grow.
quilt-a-lot answered:
You are so right - thanks for your comments.
Bonnie Amundsen asked:
Beautiful. I want to put some of those blues and purples in a quilt soon.
quilt-a-lot answered:
Thank you - I'm seeing it through fresh eyes now.
Surfside6 asked:

mhadkns968710 asked:
I love the colors to, maybe you could have added a 3 or 4 inch border of one of the calm colors to give the eye somewhere to rest. You did a beautiful job and it is very cheerful give yourself a big pat on the back.
quilt-a-lot answered:
That is a great idea - it does need a border. I'll think about how i can do this without creating a major job - any suggestions would be helpful.
