What are you most proud of? This is my first full sized project done on my home machine. I got it done just before Christmas.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch all of Ann's class before beginning and construct something like this in vertical units...

Great Class Ann! You are able to encourage beginners and offer very practical tips. I have learned a lot and look forward to trying your techniques on another machine quilting project soon.

wow, what a fun design! Obviously you are a good quilter

Thanks Shari. It was a fun project and my first quilted on my home machine after taking Ann's class.

Very nice! How does it feel to get your first DSM quilt completed? Did the experience match your expectations?

02/21/2014 Flag

It always feels good to finish a project...but it did take longer than I imagined. I am working on a new design to do in sections...sometime...

I absolutely love the whimsy in this quilt! I would have loved to see your "building" process :-)

This was built in strips about 18" long of varying heights with the "book" pieces added randomly to the background strips, seamed into a "loop" then sliced open (white on both sides) and pressed. They were then stacked and trimmed to 16 " and vertical units joined...Lots of precutting but easy to assemble.

Really precious! Is the cat appliqued?

03/23/2014 Flag

Yes. The cat is appliqued. It was a "last minute" decision to perch the kitty on the precarious stack of "books" reaching for the butterfly. Thanks for your comment.
