What materials did you use? I used my Block of the Month 2012.

What are you most proud of? I'm so proud of everything that I learned by making this quilt. I am very new to quilting and this was such a great learning experience.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just go for it!

Beautiful, Gloria. The color combo is so soothing and the sash color is just perfect! Lovely, lovely, lovely. I also had to get over the FMQ fear. (Finally posted mine yesterday). Once you do, it is really fun to try new patterns. Nice job!

Wow, I checked out your quilt that you just posted. It is really beautiful! I just love your colors and your quilting too. Doesn't it feel satisfying to get it done? I find myself walking into the bedroom to look at mine several times a day to look at it.

Your color choices are wonderful! congratulations on finishing! I'm still practicing on smaller pieces before I try the block of the month.

Gloria, This is fantastic. I love your original quilting designs. Did you draw them first, or just free quilted them?

The ones that turned out the best I drew on with a water soluble marker. The ones that I was just doing without marking first turned out a little amateurish looking. I think because I'm new to free motion quilting if I wasn't sure of where I was going my lines started to get wobbly looking.
