What You Will Need:
Something to quilt on!
Natalia will be quilting on a Free-Motion Filler Frenzy Panel. Panel is available for purchase from Honest Fabrics. Natalia is using the 51"x60" size. You can use any size you choose.
(If you use a larger size than 50"x60" you will need to use a larger circle than the Sway 5 machine quilting ruler.)
Pull out your scraps, make some fat quarter sandwiches and you're ready to begin!
