In the intervals of larger projects, it is always nice to have some of those little quilts finished.
I made this wallhanging to get the hang of machine quilting – thus explaining why such a large negative space.
With this project as well, I learned how to do raw-edge applique.
It is always nice to learn a couple of things and brushing up the skills while finishing up a small project.
Such a great way to get instant gratification wouldn’t you agree?
Machine quilting is quite addictive but it takes a while to get used to as well and a lot of patience. This little quilt took me quite some time to be finished. But finally I did it.
The best part is the binding part. This time I tried the tutorial here. I love the output of having no stitches showing up from the front side, but it takes a lot of care to make sure that it looks neat on the back as well.
So, in total this little quilt is for me to practice raw applique, machine quilt and binding! That’s why I love little quilt projects!
Have you tried making mini quilts before?
very cute! nice job.
I’m so impressed by your FMQ skills!!! I’ve not done or even tried free motion before but someday…. Your’s is absolutely gorgeous!!! Did you draw out the pattern first before quilting or did you just sew with the flow? Beautiful job, Amira.
