What are you most proud of? The finished project. It was better than I saw it in my head when I first heard of the fundraiser about 6 months ago. I immediately set the goal of making something from this course as my project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to color and mix colors! Lola was correct all the way through this course! Just get started! You'll be surprised how much fun this was. Much more fun than traditional quilting.

What an original project you made here. I can just feel how much fun you had making it, and how inspiring it is for the rest of us. Great job!

Just found out I won 1st place with this entry in a regional quilt show for the fundraiser I mentioned. A gentleman bought it and stipulated it should be hung in the Memory Care Center when it opens. This is too much fun! Can't wait to get started with another project with the cash prize! Thanks, Lola!
