What are you most proud of? I am proud that the finished doll quilt is my first project quilted with swirls and it turned out pretty good. Not perfect, but good. I made this first attempt at swirls on my birthday. So, its my birthday swirls memory quilt!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Like the instructor states: PRACTICE! Practice sketching Practice on a sample quilt sandwich Practice on a small quilt, such as the doll quilt, wall hanging or mug rug. After a while it becomes like second nature. Just don't give up!

Beautiful inspiration for your birthday! Did you quilt on a regular machine or long arm?
