What are you most proud of? EVERYTHING! In spite of all the technical problems with the finished art quilt, I'm more than a little pleased with the finished product - my first art quilt. I learned an amazing amount about how to do this kind of work. I'm already reviewing photos for a subject for my second art quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go find a quilt artist to learn along with! Forget books and videos. Even looking at well done art quilts (and I'd seen Laurie's in an art gallery last fall - they were breathtaking) don't help with figuring out how to do this kind of intricate landscape quilting art. This is an art form that requires lots of technical know-how. Laurie was most generous with each of us in the group, sharing her craft freely, helping us solve the unique problems each of our projects presented.

Very nice. Working with photos (especially ones that mean something to you) is the best. I really need to carve our more time for this type of quilting. Great work especially for a 1st.

I love this art quilt. You are very talented and have a good eye for selecting the fabrics to include in the quilt.
