What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just give it a try! I first started to quilt with a hoop in the old fashioned way. My fingertips were nearly bleeding and all the hand quilting was no fun. I found a video on youtube form Sharon Schamber on hoopless quilting. It worked so much better for me and the quilting was done A LOT faster! No hurting fingertips :)

Thanks everybody! This is a long term wip, but so relaxing. I'm done with the middle and work my way around the corners.

Wonderful! Did you finish it yet? Did you enlarge the design? I just started hand quilting and would love to make one like this. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

You're welcome! I love reading, that I was able to inspire you! I recently finished the quilt, it was a birthday present for my mum.
