I made this next quilt for a friend that waited and tried for a long time for her precious little Olivia. This quilt was made from a Bali Crackers Kool Aide pre-cut purchased from an LQS. I had two weeks to complete this quilt, no problem! . . . The quilt is made from another of Jenny Doan's videos. It says easy in the title even!!
|I put Olivia's name in each of the four corners :)
I finally got it all together and had decided I was going to do hearts in the blocks and flowers in the diamonds.... I did the top row and half of the second row of the hearts, put it on my design wall and hated it! I had stitched in the ditch before starting FMQ and I really liked the puffy look of the unquilted blocks..... I spent the next several days ripping stitches..... Note to self, sometimes simple really is better! I did finish this quilt prior to her visit but just under the wire!
Have you ever seen a tutorial or pattern that indicates it is easy and found it challenging?
Back to picking stitches for me! Until next time, keep on quilting!!
