I made lots of quilting mistakes but thankfully I can take some lessons from my experience that hopefully (!!) will stop me from doing the same again!
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.
I tried free-motion quilting using the zig-zag stitch to speed things up but the effect got worse and worse as I went rather than better and better!
