What was your inspiration?
I always wanted to HAND-quilt a quilt. I also wanted something to do while I watched movies on TV (I can never just sit there .... I need to be knitting, crocheting, ironing, etc), and I wanted to do something different than I usually did. I found the cross-stitch quilt squares at my local store, and stitched them up. I loved the flower pattern and thought that this would be the perfect project for hand quilting. I've never hand quilted before. I am used to cutting, sewing and finishing a project in less than 72 hours. This was NOT one of those projects. However, I am thrilled with the results and am happy it is finished!
What are you most proud of?
I attempted to hand quilt and FINISHED it. It was the one project that I picked up and put down a hundred times, but the results are beautiful and I'm very happy with the way it turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you want to try something new or a new technique - GO FOR IT! I'm very glad I completed this project. It was challenging at times (I still haven't mastered quilting using a thimble and my fingers paid for it) but I'm proud of myself for taking on this challenge.
