What are you most proud of? Glad to be finished--there are 45 blocks to quilt and I wanted to experience with each block to try something different--quirky designs made up on the fly. I'm not going to concern myself with the frightened job I did on feathers. My husband said they looked like golf clubs. I chuckled and said, "oh thanks a lot dear."

What advice would you give someone starting this project? TIP: Especially with the plain blocks--draw diagonal lines from corner to corner to make a big X. I used a big plastic ruler and fine line Frixion pens. Sometimes I added more lines to make squares. The center mark, diagonal marks, and squares helped me to repeat key elements.

Oh, please do post a picture of your golf club design ! I really like your random approach on quilting each block. And your choice of white binding turned out perfect too. Golf clubs please !

OMG, this beautiful! I love the color combination. Quilting the the blocks differently adds great texture and finishes the quilt perfectly. Love it.

Hi Oma2EZE. Thanks for your kind words. This is one of those "try every design you can think of" long arm quilt stitching sampler. It was fun, but lots of quilt work.
