I used this more than a year ago to quilt the background of James's little space wall hanging:
It's definitely a cute design and I think it could easily pair with hot fix crystals for a neat effect! Let's see how it's stitched in Express Your Love:
Difficulty Level - Intermediate.
Design Family - Branching.
Since I mentioned it in the video, here's the link to pick up the printed quilt panel from Spoonflower. You only need 1 yard of fabric, and my favorite is the Cotton Poplin.
I also had a lot of issues with excess fabric in this section. Mostly this was down to the choice to use extremely puffy batting. I really need to sit down and do a batting test before basting a quilt because once it's basted and the quilting started, you're stuck!
Even with the batting causing issues, I'm super happy with how all the designs are combining on the surface. We're going to continue learning new designs in this version, but next week also start constructing a brand new top. If you follow on facebook, you might have seen some glimpses of this version coming together already!
That's it for today. It's nearly July 4th which means it's time to relax, kick back by the pool, and grill out!
Let's go quilt,
