What are you most proud of? It was a great project for practicing free motion quilting. I liked creatively extending the print (flowers/leaves) into the borders without first drawing the design.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get the magazine and give it a try. It was loads of fun. Make sure there is good thread contrast in extending the print design into the borders. Use a heavier quilting thread so the quilting outline shows up.

It's wonderful. I really like the ghost quilting. What thread did you use?

I used what I had on hand - King Tut for the vanilla, plain old Coats & Clark all purpose for the coral/water melon, and some Gutermann for the green. I had started the vanilla with just some Coats & Clark, but it didn't show up very well, so switched to the King Tut and went over what I had already done. Would have been more happy with the green if I used heavier thread or went over it twice so it stood out more. I could/should have used all vanilla in the coral/water melon border. It was fun so I'll do it again using a larger more colorful print . Had never heard about ghost quilting before picking up the magazine.

Thanks for the info. And even better King Tut threads are available here in Aust. Can't wait to see the next project :)
