What are you most proud of? I am MOST proud of my quilting... Outline, Echo and Diagonal quilting (I did some little sunrays too) Oh and I think my two cushions look good together... now to search for a pattern for number 3:)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have had such trouble trying to locate quilting feet for my 30 year old Frister Rossmann and finally bought them from England... then I was so nervous about using them when I finally got them! My advice take this class of Wendy's and just get stuck in, I actually found it fun and I am so pleased with the result. Now for free motion quilting!!!!!

wow, you are really stepping up your game here! My sewing group has been making Quilts of Valor and used the same disappearing 9-patch from Eleanor Burns. It has a great scrappy look and is perfect for a group project...but thanks for the quilting ideas and tips! Must try. Looks like fun! Pam

Hey Zaza thanks for the lovely comments, I will be looking forward to seeing your quilting. The walking foot is a great benefit to pulling the 3 layers though without puckering... you will really enjoy it, I am:)))

Love these pillows! I made a bed runner and pillows for our daughter using this pattern, great and easy and very cute. Now think I'm going to make a few toss pillows for myself, you have inspired me, thanks for sharing!
