I am thrilled that I did! This is much better than the not-quilted version. Plus, I discovered a new quilting motif...which I happen to like very much. More on that later. There's so much going on that I almost can't contain myself.
Not only did I finish Les Bâtons, I am on my way home as I write this post...from Houston.
Last night we finally decided to leave early this morning, spend the day at the quilt fest, then return home this evening--which translates into "as soon as my body gives out."
I took hundreds of pictures, so be sure to come back on Sunday for a full report. In the meantime, here are a few more pics of Les Bâtons because I really like this quilt.
|Size:||45 X 60 (approx.)|
|Fabrics:||Scrap fabrics from stash|
|Quilting:||Custom free motion|
If you are a beginning quilter, you should give this pattern a try. You don't really need a pattern; just cut some small squares and sew them into a line, then add as much background fabric as you feel you need. That's how I put this one together.
Don't you think that system would work for you as well? Would you prefer a "real" tutorial? I can add measurements and steps without much difficulty.
