The Learning Quilt

Finally! It's done! This quilt is a culmination of designs I have learned since the beginning of the year. Most of the designs have come from Leah Day from The Free Motion Quilting Project, a couple from Elizabeth Hartman from Oh, Fransson!, and one from Jennyfrom Sew Kind Of Wonderful.

I did all of the binding in Jay McCarroll's Habitat City Planning in Green. I absolutely love it!


I'm glad to have this quilt done and it holds a special place in my heart. I set out to learn to FMQ and a year later, I can say, I AM a Free Motion Quilter! If you want to see the individual square up close you can check out my Flickr account here http://www.flickr.com/photos/freshoffthespool/sets/72157630442317044/

Upon posting these picks I just realized I mixed 2 of my squares up! The orange at the top of this photo with the light pink directly under it. DANGIT! I thought I was being so careful! Oh, well, these things happen;)

    1. I knew something was off when I first took the picture, but I couldn't put my finger on it.

  2. It is wonderful! The switch of the 2 squares really doesn't matter - it still looks planned. Congrats on getting it done! ~Jeanne

  3. Danielle, that is beautiful! I learned from Leah the same way. I made a QAYG memorial tee shirt quilt and did a different stitch in each of the 36 blocks. It was fun, a great learning experience and the recipients loved it. Win, win, win!!!
