Last year at the Fat Quartley retreat I took Katy’s eep class and made a cushion with this Spring Carnival pattern. Then decided to make it up as a baby quilt from the pattern, using the same bright kona solids. The eep section did take a little while, my major stumbling block was the quilting. I have a quilting sewing machine and have found the walking foot a real pain to use [ the machine is inov-is QC100] was meant to have continues automatic pressure that I understood to be a built in walking foot. So I now use my old Janome walking foot and I think I just need to order the Brother version, do you have this machine? Any tips?
I have missed a project to stitch in the evenings, with no knitting on the go. I decided to try and use up all my scraps, using dressmaking and quilting fabrics all jumbled up.
I have found the jumbled miss matched fabrics tricky, I love it when fabrics work together or quilt tops have a design to them. But this is a true old fashioned EPP scrappy piece and am hoping to make it up into a lap quilt or even a few cushions – then my fabric basket will be empty and I can buy some new delicious fabrics!
