I consider myself a beginner when it comes to quilting, and this is my first quilt bigger than a table topper. It is about 60"x80". I fell in love with this fabric about 6 years ago in the City Quilter in NYC and just had to have it. It is very much like batiq and has gold crackle on top. I was scared to use the fabric because I did not want to screw it up. But in the end I realised, so what if I screw it up. It is just fabric, not the end of the world, and it is MY quilt. So what if it is not perfect? So I plunged into it and I am very happy I did. I wanted to showcase the fabric so I did minimum cutting and decided to go with simple QID. This was a big time confidence booster for me.
