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 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!

I may be repeating myself, but I LOVED your class, and it inspired me to take a break from FMQ and get re-acquainted with my walking foot. It's all your fault! LOL LOL LOL

Whoo Hoo!..Did you find it relaxing? Looks great!

Pattir2013, it was nowhere near as boring as I thought! I enjoyed the process very much. I still don't think I would do a whole twin/queen sized quilt, but something smaller for sure. I've already done it as some accent striping/piping on a mug rug or two, and I love that dense quilting effect. This was indeed, more fun than I expected!

Oh, and just my personal choice - I left some of the quilting a bit bigger, like 1/2 inch apart, and I also played around with the stitch length. I think those two things added a bit of contrast and texture to the stitching without being so distracting.
