What are you most proud of? The blocks turned out beautiful - although I did modify some of them - englarged others and added different colored borders. Still have lots of work to do but will post more photos as I begin to quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are no such things as mistakes.....follow your passion and most importantly - create and have fun!

Wonderful! The black, red and white is an absolute knock-out! Good luck with the FMQ - you'l find Leah's class is excellent! Looking forward to seeing how you get on!

As you can see,......still working on quilting it - had to buy more batting today to complete the 10 extra blocks I threw in.

I am a bright color girl but I must say that in this particular quilt (2012 BOM), the black, red and white fabric choices really make this quilt shine. Very nice work and thank you for sharing it with us!
