The basic idea is to make blocks using solid fabrics and to practise a different free motion quilting technique on each of the blocks then, piece them together using a QAYG technique. In the book I think Christina makes thirty blocks but I only made twelve, so the finished quilt is a lot smaller.
I had made and pieced together all the blocks quite some time ago (before I moved house) but, I just hadn't got round to binding the quilt.... until this last week.
It is now finished and I am very happy with the finished lap-sized quilt. To see the individual blocks in more detail, you can visit my FMQ Sampler Quilt 2016 page.
It turned out beautifully!! I'll have to put that book on my Wish List.ReplyDelete

Very nice! Your FMQ skills are fantastic.ReplyDelete
What is the finished size? What kind of sewing machine do you have?
Your work is so inspiring to me...the string of daisies is my favorite and your colors are great I love it! So funReplyDelete
Thank you Shelly! I liked the daisies too... they were a lot of fun to sew! Christine xDelete
This makes me think of sherbet! So pretty!ReplyDelete
Sieht gut aus, jetzt weiß ich auch was du gemacht hast um so gut zu werden!ReplyDelete
Wonderful job! I took a close view of the photos and it looks really good! I'm going to try the quilt-as-you-go next year... how did you find it? Btw, the fabric that joins the blocks is so cute! (and so clever to use a print in between those solids!). Have a wonderful week! AriadnaReplyDelete
Beautiful! Can't imagine having that much control over a sewing machine!ReplyDelete
