When Dorie was looking for bloggers for the blog hop, I jumped at the chance. I ordered the book and as soon as it came was inspired in new ways to quilt. I love free motion quilting, especially when there are very few starts and stops involved. Dorie does a great job guiding you through the process of each design and makes it easy to follow. I had a quilt top which I completed at a sewing retreat 3 years ago (embarrassing…I’m sure none of ya’ll have any of those) and still needed to be quilted.
I’m glad that I hadn’t quilted it yet, because it was the perfect quilt to practice new designs on from the Making Connections book. The quilt itself is rather busy so I decided to try one of the more simple designs in the book (connecting curves with petals) and I absolutely love how it turned out. What do ya’ll think?
