So a quick scout around Pinterest and I came up with some very helpful advice and tutorials. As always I got a little distracted but it was all good.
This brilliant tutorial allowed me to use up yet more scraps and inspired me to find out about the stippling free motion technique used for the quilting which I found here at Oh Fransson. Some really great instructions which helped me to make this mini quilt.
I really love the process of piecing together all the scraps although mine are a more regular layout to those in the mosaic tutorial. I made a scrappy block too.
These would be great as cushion covers or blocks made into a quilt....so many ideas.
Things I've learn about quilting:
- Make sure you have a good supply of thread. It's suprising just how much you use.
- Quilting the baby quilt is going to be hard work.
- I understand now why I saw weird photos of people with rubber gloves on when machine quilting. It's to help grip the fabric when sewing and allows you to move it about under the needle easier. I haven't done this by the way!
