Sample this…

Standard

Finished this up today from a workshop I took in February.  Sometimes you only learn one or 2 things but this was a little smorgasbord of techniques!

What it promised:

  • how to use some decorative stitches on your sewing machine
  • the functions of a twin needle and wing needle (had them but had no idea what to do with them)
  • the quilt-as-you-go technique

What I got in addition:

  • how to make circles without the use of a $50 attachment
  • how to make a monogram without an embroidery machine
  • how to use 1 inch strips of batting (which might normally be thrown away) and strips of fabric to make a basket weave block

This is not Modern Quilting – looks more like an heirloom piece to me –  but I love it!
