What are you most proud of? There were many "firsts" for me with this quilt. I created (or super-sized, rather) the quilt block and wrote up a tutorial (see elvycrafts.blogspot.com), and then really branched out by trying Angela's quilting designs.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The piecing part was easy, probably a beginner level quilt. For the quilting, be patient and don't despair -- it will look great when everything is put together -- even if some of the individual quilting elements aren't quite perfect. I think that's a theme that Angela repeated throughout the online course, and I took that to heart.

this quilt is gorgeous! What a terrific job you have done--you must be fearless to "go for it" on an actual quilt! I have just practiced on scraps so far...
