What are you most proud of? Completing my first quilt top! Once the quilt is finished, it will be a present for my father.

Very nice and very ambitious for a first quilt! Jump in with both feet I say!

Looks great! I have to agree with the rest of the comments and say very ambitious for a first quilt but you had a great instructor to learn from.

Thank you! Yes, Kaye was a wonderful instructor and I had a lot of fun piecing.

I don't think it's monochromatic at all .I think there's less value contrast in most of it than in mine, but I purposely changed the setting segments when my blocks were getting absorbed in them. I really like your quilt.

Thanks! I agree that the blocks don't stand out as much amid the busy fillers but I was going for a crazy, tons going on look. It's interesting how much the setting of the blocks with fillers affects the overall look of the quilt.
