What advice would you give someone starting this project? Ann Petersen gives you a lot of helpful information for how to handle a large quilt on a small machine. Her advice and illustration gave me confidence to keep at this, and learn how to do it. It takes time, but I AM REALLY PROUD that I machine-quilted this myself. (YAY!!!)

You are absolutely right to be proud of yourself - this is a truly magnificent quilt! The colours are lovely and the piano-key border just finishes it off beautifully. Clever you, to quilt the whole thing on a domestic machine - I had to resort to the quilt-as-you-go method so I think I probably need Ann's course!

It's still pretty hard to wrestle the huge thing on a domestic machine, even though the harp on mine is a little bigger than most.... and I DO recommend Ann's course for great ideas and just getting the confidence to do it

Looks great! I love the border on it.

This is just delightful!!! Is the pattern available anywhere?

The blocks are from the 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month free class. The sashing and the borders are my own selection. Have you signed up for the 2013 free BOM?

Great job! I am working on mine now but doing the block by block quilting method. Love that you used different colors in the sashing.

03/21/2013 Flag

I used scraps from the quilt for the sashing, so it pulls it together nicely and echoes the fun feel of the whole thing.
