What materials did you use? All scraps and leftovers! Ombre batiks and broadcloth, leftover cotton batting, variegated thread

What are you most proud of? That I had the patience and endurance to complete this! In reality, it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I love the negative space for the lettering.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The 1/4 and 1/8 inch spacings got a little confusing, so my advice is to leave the thread tails when you are sewing, and that will tell you where you left off, and where to start sewing next.

Very unusual and interesting.

Love it. Oh yeah, this required patience and endurance! I love the choice of thread.

It was not as bad as I thought, but yes, patience is a must. I am glad I did it, though. I might not do a full quilt this way, but some accent matchstick quilting would look good, I think.

Very nice! Lots of sewing "mileage" here.

I definitely got my practice of straight line sewing.... don't know that I improved much, but it was still fun to do. This really, really makes you get to know your walking foot and it's dimensions quite well!

This is all about persistence and you did it!! And you're right...sometimes with all the lines, you can lose track. Thread tails is a great tip. Thanks for sharing!
