I guess every quilt has a story, but sometimes I think “Hoo-boy, this one really has a story!”
I decided to use the fat quarters (FQs) I’d dyed in the class to make a quilt using Debbie’s Usagi pattern.
The blocks were easy to make and I enjoyed the process. Then I decided to quilt it myself! I usually do pretty well quilting on my domestic machine, but my walking foot decided it didn’t want to participate. The resulting quilt was quite a mess. No, I did not take pictures!
I took out a lot of the quilting, using both a regular seam ripper and a tool that looks like a miniature electric razor. Both worked pretty well, and I managed not to make holes in the fabric!
