Here are some details about my project:

Type Home Decor
Style Casual
Darns on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? batik fabrics, cotton batting, & Aurifil thread for piecing, Isacord & Bottomline threads for quilting

Darns on craftsy.com

What are you most proud of? Most of the quilting and my own block adaptations

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think I will use thread that blends for quilting in the future - the bobbles & wiggles won't show as much. I used a light green thread in the sashing & border and every wiggle shouts at me!

Is this a 2nd BOM quilt? I remember your white background with weaving in between, right? This is quite wonderful, also. Way to go.

Actually, this is the third 2012 BOM quilt! The first one was done last fall & given to my good friend Lesley. The second one was the one with the woven sashing. I'm so glad I finally have the 2012 BOM quilts done!

Your project is really beautifully crafted. Well done in colors and the quilting is better than you think. From the pictures the color difference does not show. It looks just right. Looks like a High Quality Quilt to me.

Thanks, Barbara! I guess we see every flaw from 6 in. away! I've really enjoyed practicing my FMQ on these quilts. I figured I had to quit practicing on scraps & just do it.

Oh how nice the colors are and to see the project all together. I really like the greens.

Thank you! Blue-greens are my favorite colors - I have to push myself to use other color schemes!.
