This is the color pallet I will be using for this project. I have finished making and quilting blocks one and two. I have also chosen my thread colors for this project. The coppery brown is for the back. My quilt back is made of material I had in my stash. I thought they were all fat quarters until I started ironing and cutting them. Oops! Well to stick with my goal of use what you have, I just made a few randomly pieced blocks. Here is a picture of the blocks laid out on the playroom floor.
I quilted my quilts as shown in the Skill Builder’s Block of the Month videos. I used my Bernina patchwork edition for this quilting. The use of the thread holder and using an embroidery needle prevented thread problems I had had in the past. Thanks so much for the tip about the sharp needles Alyssa.
I simply used unclosed quilting pins to baste this since it is such a small project. Here are som pictures of my FMQ.
