    Homework from Design It Quilt It

    I am taking a class over the internet at craftsy.com. It takes designing a wholecloth and breaks it down into managable parts along with teaching awesome quilting techniques. The quilt is 40x 40. If I would do it again, I would quilt the outer edge with red thread. The quilt is actually a bright red. The color on the photo is way off.

    Oh my goodness! Beautiful work! I want to take THAT class. Were you able to quilt so evenly before? I'm really impressed.

    Wow! That is gorgeous! Is that class geared towards long arm quilting or domestic machine quilting?

    Oh Wow Deb, you did an excellent job! Doing those feathers in a circle is not easy. When you said you'd use Red thread next time I thought ?????. LOL... It looks hot pink from where I'm sitting. I agree with matching the thread to the fabric for the background fill work. Would really make the feathered wreath pop off the quilt. I like to use SoFine when doing that kind of quilting.
