I think I would have preferred making a line quilt from scratch rather than from a quilt that I already made. Or maybe I just picked the wrong quilt to make this one from for the lesson. I would have rather done something with lines like those created by a fire escape, telephone lines, a sailing ship riggings, or a suspension bridge.I think those would have been more fun. At least this was a challenge.
I had such a hard time picking fabrics and a color scheme for this one so that must say something. I think at least I did a good job of that. And I did get to practice free motion quilting and putting a facing on a quilt for the first time. I still like sewing on binding better! This one was hard because of the thickness of the fusible web at the edges of the quilt especially the right hand side. That could always be an issue for me since I do a lot of fusible. I guess it will get easier with time and practice.
So here is the original quilt called California Dreaming.
Here is my remade line quilt from the trees in the background.
Not sure what I should call this quilt. It came out 16 in by 20 in. Any ideas for a title?
- California Dreaming 2?
- The Dark Woods?
- Between the Shadows?
- Ancient Pines?
- Give Me a Real Tree Any Day?
