What was your inspiration?
Thanks to Leah's class and the other FMQ classes I have taken at Craftsy (Ann Petersen, Wendy Butler Berns, Cindy Needham).
What are you most proud of?
That I'm doing FMQ at all! I love doing the feather fans. A decent straight line is still a challenge but this quilt is giving me lots of practice at that.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Practice, practice, practice & don't give up! Four blocks quilted and only 16 more to go for this quilt - sigh - at least the whole quilted is stitched in the ditch so it's all fun stuff from here. I did end up stitching almost every seam in the ditch as I had a couple of slightly baggy blocks that needed to be stitched down - really helps.
Have chocolate handy!
