What materials did you use? Cotton fabric and batting, polyester thread.

What are you most proud of? I was able to free motion quilt the entire quilt without ripping out more than a dozen stitches - and those were only when the bobbin ran out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! you are only limited by your own doubts. Be fearless and fly. Don't judge your work based on the other quilts in the gallery. Only you can make your quilt. With time and practice yours will be as good, or perhaps better. Remember that you must practice.

Nice job, Gene. I really like your colors. And is that variegated thread I see? I just started quilting mine today. Five blocks down, forty-four to go. :-)

Yes, I "disobeyed" and used it. I didn't have breakage from it.

I've done quite a bit of quilting with Superior's King Tut variegated thread and never had a problem with it. I love the look of it. I hadn't ever tried it on anything where the quilting is this dense and you do so much "travel stitching". Nice to know the thread can hold up to that kind of usage.

Thanks Tanya

I'm taking your advice. FMQ is still quite intimidating to this novice quilter.

Don't be afraid go for it.
