Wildflower Pattern giveaway winner !!

Yay! The winner of the Wildflower PDF pattern giveaway is Joy Meetis

Congratulations Joy......

I loved reading all the comments, it's fun to see what part of the quilting process you enjoy. Quilt making has something for everyone.

I have many favorite parts...but the part that gets me really going is the design process. I love to play with ideas, work with colour and fabrics, sometimes the quilts come out completely different to the image I have in my mind. They seem to take on a mind of their own lol. The process of making decisions along the way is the fun part, sometimes a quilt needs a little rest before I decide on the final outcome. I also find that the more I have learnt about the techniques I like to use the more confidence I have when it comes to making those design decisions. I love to incorporate applique in my quilts, but there are quilts where I have not needed to and I love them just as much. I also love the piecing process and love small pieces as much as I love larger pieces, learning to piece with an accurate 1/4 inch seam and quick techniques for pieced units has helped my enjoyment of the piecing process. Then there is the quilting......daunting tho it might seem, once I get into quilting a quilt I can not stop. Learning to quilt my own quilts has been one of the greatest pleasures of quilting. I use my domestic machine and all tho there are times when I am daunted by the thought of quilting a large quilt, I have learnt so much by perseverance, trial and error, and dogged determination. 

I hope you enjoyed sharing your stories !

Happy Stitching 

Sharon

Adding the borders, it always amazes me when the next step is added, how the choices of fabric can change the look of the quilt. This is true for the first inner border, although it is only a small addition it is a game-changer. The applique adds another dimension. Read more about the borders and techniques............
