What are you most proud of? I finished the top, and immediately started working on the quilting. I also joined the Free Motion quilting course, and Creative Quilt Backs, along with two other free quilting courses that Craftsy offered. Oh, and I bought the Landscape Quilting Course, which really intrigues me. Of course, all this time I am denying that I will become a quilter!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy the process, and indulge your love of colors. Invest in a rotary cutter, cutting mat and a good quilting ruler. All of these will help you in any sewing project.

I loved your review. I am finishing a similair quilt and I am not pleased with a couple of the blocks but didn't know if I really wanted to exclude them after making them. This has convinced me to not add them if I am not happy! Thanks!

I think that taking so many of the Craftsy courses has helped me to have confidence in my own decisions about what I make! I am just about finished quilting this top, with a combination of the Free motions quilting class and the advice from Amy. Thanks for commenting!

love your colors and the block that you added! Good for you for making it your own.

Thank you! It is my first time quilting, and am pleased with the results. Not sure if I will become a diehard quilter, though!

I love your quilt - it is beautiful! I am only on the 5th block, but I hope mine turns out okay. I signed up for the quilting of this quilt - I always mess up on the quilting - I have ordered a walking foot - wish me luck

I bought a walking foot, as well, but decided I don't like stitching in the ditch as much as free motion, but the walking foot is really helpful. Good luck, can't wait to see yours when it is done!

It is beautiful. Congrats on getting the top done! I am just starting.

Thanks! I loved making the blocks and improving my understanding of angles! Wish I had done this at school!
