    Minnesota Quilt

    Here's my first Minnesota fabric quilt (kit from 2012). Bought this kit last year while up north. Pattern is "Fiddle Sticks" purchased from Front Porch Quilts in Walker MN. Visit them if you get the chance. Great little shop! I have lots to improve on but am encouraged with progress on some techniques. This turned out very close to what the finished size is supposed to be (ha ha). My 1/4" seam is not always fool proof but is getting better. I tried fmq (made the mistake of starting with wax paper instead of freezer paper) and that lesson I'll always remember. Trust me, freezer paper works a lot better than wax paper! How do you fmq on busy fabric and know where your at? Would love to free lance without following a traced line on freezer paper but tend to get lost along the way. Hope I get better at it soon.

    Awwwww....your quilt made this Minnesota girl homesick! I grew up near the Twin Cities and left home in the 80's. I smiled when as I read "while up north"...the summers we had "up north"!! Great job and a great treasure!!!!!!!!
    Sewing right along........Martha
