Finished up my collage quilt & working on another

My Laura Heine collage quilt is finished and I'm ready for class.
I'll be teaching this collage technique in an all day class. It should be fun👍

The hardest part was quilting him. Going through multiple layers of steam a seam while FMQ wasn't easy. I had to stop quite often to wipe off my needle. But overall, I'm very happy with how he turned out.

  • ...this wasnt the UFO I was supposed to finish but it IS a finish and that makes me happy!

So now that he was done, I started on another project that's been ignored for a while.. My American Jane quilt.

Border to decide what I want to add next. Maybe a couple of plain little borders then a border of stars. It's about 56" right now. I would like it to be at least 72" square when I'm done.

Yes it was something different. I'm always up for giving new processes a try. I probably need a bit more instruction on finishing a collage quilt.
