What materials did you use? I used one jelly roll and one charm pack for the front, and leftovers from the front and my stash for the back. I did some of the quilting free-motion and the rest with my embroidery machine.

What are you most proud of? I like the way the back is as pretty as the front and that I can see the quilting on the negative spaces there.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The jelly charm is a quick and easy project and completing the quilting on the machine was easier with some of the tips I learned in Machine Quilting. Especially using two folding tables to hold the weight off of the quilt.

I like this version of the insert a block stip on the back. Well done.

It's really a reversible quilt now! I think it's really great and I'm so impressed by your FMQ. Also impressed by the beautiful cat - wish I lived near enough to come and give him/her a cuddle!

Joan and I would love a cuddle. Thanks.

This is a beautiful quilt back and i have had a peak at the front too, both are super. Your quilting however is on a whole new level, i have quilting envy:) Thanks for sharing.

I have to admit that the quilting is mostly done on my embroidery frame with my designer software. It does make it easier (if the quilt stays in the frame). Thanks for the kind words.

It is still wonderful, I couldn't do it.
