What are you most proud of? I am left handed so everything I did was backwards or upsidedown. I wanted to try the techniques before breaking into a brand new jelly roll. I tried really hard to get the points to come together correctly. The quilting was all done on my sewing machine. I've never attempted this kind of quilting using decorative stitches before.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes a lot of time and patience for this project. Watched the video over and over as I was working through.

Very nice job! Did you do the machine quilting too? Loveit! :)

Thank you. Yes, I did the machine quilting. I wanted to try Kimberly's freezer paper method and I used the serpentine stitch on my sewing machine as well as straight stitching.

SOOOO pretty! Don't you just LOVE the way the striped fabric looks at the tips? The center print fabric in the star adds a lot of interest and movement. Well done!!!!
