What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was made spontaneously, starting with the Asian print in three blocks which I purchased. The rest of the fabrics came from my bag of scraps. I added interior borders to tie the bigger blocks together. The individual blocks were quilted free-motion and the borders were quilted with a decorative stitch.

This is a quilt I pieced together in 3 separate panels. I wanted to do extensive quilting and small sized sections are easier to quilt. I took the class so that I could assemble it according to the instructions in the class. However my technique can be improved with practice. My next project won't have lumpy connecting seams! I'm definitely going to use the info from the class on future projects.

Beautiful use of large scale prints. You have made a very striking quilt! And the quilting is wonderful!

Thank you, Ann. I'm glad you have taken the time to check the site. That response makes me feel like you are a real person, not a technical product. The class was so informative, I am going to watch it again for sure.
