Quilt 1.5

I started this quilt top before I did my quilting class. Consequently it is full of mistakes but the overall effect is still pleasing (I think). It is made from a moda charm pack (rainy day) and some solid white quilting cotton. I was then scared to sandwich or quilt it ’till after my quilting class so here it is!

IMG_0101.JPG I also attempted to make my own bias binding using several online tutorials…unfortunately I got muddled up and cut the fabric not on the bias. Annoyingly I realised too late and did not have enough fabric left to redo this so I have used it defiantly. ┬áThe quilt of errors! Quilting was pretty scary as I’m still a novice and didn’t feel up to attempting free motion on my machine so I did some simple straight lines but after completing it I realised I should have googled more enthusiastically for inspiration. All in all this was a learning experience.
