What materials did you use? I took the Quickly Quilting class online with Jenny Doan. Once I finished my quilt top and added my batting and fabric backing with techniques taught by Ann Petersen then I used the free motion quilting techniques taught by Leah Day. The border and binding were done using method by Kimberly Einmo.

Gosh, the story behind this quilt, the process of making it, and the fact that it is your very first - honestly you are amazing. Quilting is by it's very nature a healing craft. I have always found piecing and quilting a bit like stitching yourself back together again. Definitely keep quilting, keep asking questions and learning. I feel so very lucky to have been a teacher that helped you with this process.

Beautiful quilt, Scheri! I love the subtlety and simpleness of it. I see so many "busy" quilts, yet when I see ones like yours, it just looks so cheery! It is sweet.

Looks like you got the supreme slider. Does this really make much difference? I see you have a machine that is not dropped down flush with the table top. I have the exact same situation. I just ordered the supreme slider and I am waiting for it to arrive. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'm going to notice a difference.
