The story of my worst quilt ever! I made loads of quilting mistakes and learned some good quilting lessons – including when to stop!
It all started as an idea for a ‘quick and easy’ orphan block quilt using some different-sized quilt blocks and a stack of my husband’s old jeans.
I set out to do it improv style without a pattern – similar to the modern scrap quilt I made out of Ruby Star Society scraps.
Mistake #1: Overthinking!
My second quilting mistake for this quilt was that I didn’t spend enough time basting my quilt sandwich.
Mistake #2: Lazy Quilt Basting
I basically thought that if I did enough of this random quilting pattern over the entire quilt it might start to look intentional…it didn’t.
Mistake #3: Overcomplicating the Quilting Design
