I will file this under…”Because You Asked”. In the post, How to Choose a Needle for Free Motion Quilting HERE, I offered a small glimpse of this quilt underneath a few needles. Several people asked to see more of this quilt…
This quilt was made nearly ten years ago…I’ve learned a lot about quilting and binding since then! It does illustrate a few things…Bind your practice pieces and use them. I use this little quilt all the time under bowls of fruit or with a vase on top. It’s only 14 inches square–and it’s far from perfect, but that’s partly why it gets so much use…I don’t care if I spill on it!
Also, date your practice pieces. It will be a yardstick for how far you’ve come. This one doesn’t have a date on it, but I wish it did.
A little tip for today…Bind and date your practice pieces!
Hope you’re having a restful day…at least you don’t have to cook!
