What are you most proud of? This was my first full-sized quilt, which I free-motion quilted myself. Thank you, Paula Reid AND Wendy Butler! I participated in Paula's Workshop in October, and recently purchased Wendy's quilting class. One can NEVER have too much knowledge!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Paula Reid's Stuff and Fluff workshop gave me the courage to try to do a large quilt on my Brother Innovis 4000D. Otherwise, I would either not have attempted making the top myself, or would have taken it to a shop to have them quilt it for me. BE ADVENTUROUS!!!

I really love this -- super happy colors! I love those bright and cheerful colors -- and to learn to do the quilting yourself - I am excited. I'm in those classes now! Wonderful!

Thank you for the positive comments. I agree; it's so cheery, and it makes the glumness of winter fade into the background. I'm working on the second one now---the glittery unicorn fabric I also found at Joann's Fabrics. This grand-daughter likes Unicorns.

I will be unable to post any projects for awhile, dang it! My husband and I were in a car wreck on Dec. 27th at 1050 hours. We were T-boned on my side, and I am BLESSED to ONLY have a broken clavicle! My husband is okay with just bruising and tender muscles. We had a friend with us in the back seat driver's side that stayed concious throughout (I didn't). He said that at impact we flew up, came down on the two left wheels perpendicular to the road, began to roll over toward the roof, but suddenly rolled BACK over and landed on all fours. I believe we were pushed by Divine Intervention.

The paramedics and fire department had to use the jaws of life to get me out.
