A first quilt..
Carol completed her first quilt, a rail fence, with these beautiful neutral colours. I used the pantograph called Love Doodle, and it turned out beautifully. I think we have another quilter blooming in our community! She did a fabulous job, and I hope she is motivated to continue with more projects.
The original Love Doodle Pantograph that I had was a little small and too dense for this quilt. I went to my local Staples and enlarged the pantograph sample to adjust the size. The enlarged pantograph worked much better with the blocks, and was a softer effect.
edited to add: I contacted Urban Elementz regarding resizing the FREE pantographs that I had downloaded and there is no issue to size the free pantos on that site.
Next up, is this quilt that has been waiting for about 3 years for some quilting:
