What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the paper piecing course on Craftsy, It is an awesome course and the instructor is very easy to follow and understand.......Thank you Peggy....and Craftsy...couldn't have done this one without your help.....

Wow! Congratulations for winning a ribbon on your quilt!! Your quilting is spectacular - particularly love the stars you quilted in the sashing - really fantastic!! I'm so proud and thrilled for you - thanks so much for sharing it all!

Thanks again Peggy, coming from you that is very high praise....I am quite pleased with myself and the way it turned out. I was petrified to do the free motion quilting for fear of ruining it, but I picked out the design I wanted to do and just did it as you said I should do. I am so glad I took you advice and finished it all myself...You are my inspiration on this and can't wait to do another of your designs....Best wishes to you Peggy and thank you for all you do for us quilters.......

Great job! Congrats on winning a ribbon! I had not even thought about entering a quilt in a fair. I may look into that myself. It would be cool to have lots of folks see your work, even if you don't win any ribbons.
