What are you most proud of? I started out thinking I would just quilt around the shape of the ferns, then decided to try the fern quilting you demonstrated in an early lesson, I think I did pretty well in getting the leaf to curve down onto the spine.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Admittedly I have been quilting for awhile, but my main advice would be to just go for it and try it!

Any tips for the cyanotype printing...? Was it tricky to turn out nice designs? Yours are lovely. :-). I want to do this in the summer with my children to make a cottage quilt, but have never done it before. Thank you for any advice you can offer!
