What materials did you use? Quilt shop cottons, Radiance, Fusible Fleece, Sulky and Aurifil thread, button. Cotton fabric and pattern were in a kit from in Tucson, Arizona.

What are you most proud of? Getting it done! It's not perfect but unless the Quilt Police come to my house and give it a two inch inspection folks will go "wow!" I really like my use of Radiance fabric as an accent and the free-motion stitching around the flower.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep learning! While I've added this project to the Borders class, it really is a culmination of the free-motion quilting skills I've learned by working through many of the FMQ classes. Each one gives me inspiration, helps me learn new skills, and allows me to be forgiving of myself during the learning process.

I love that! Was the boot pattern part of the course you took or did you get it somewhere else? I'd love to buy it!

The course is on doing borders and they have a different project. I took what I learned and applied it to this UFO. Yes, the pattern is still available from I think you'll have to call the shop to order it.

I guess I should have read your "Inspiration" section before jumping to comment! I was just so excited about the pattern! Great job!

Can I purchase a pattern?

Check with if they have this as a pattern as well as a kit. I know there is a boot pattern you could adapt to your own designs.

I went to that site and couldn't find the pattern. I love yours and I want to make one of these like yours to give for a wedding gift. How can I find this pattern? I REALLY need it. thanks!!!

Thanks for mentioning that! I bought the pattern during the shop hop and then bought the kit (and another pattern) later. It's great for us who love the southwest.
