What are you most proud of? Being able to complete this quilt. Took me a couple of weeks. I like the colors. The pictures don't really do it justice. This is my third quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the video several times and pay attention to the little details. Being a novice at quilting I was able to learn a lot.

Can't believe this is only your 3rd quilt-very impressive! This pattern intimidates me, but maybe I'll try it now.

Amazing quilt, I was immediately drawn to its strong contrasting colours and pattern. It reminds me of African Dutch Wax printed fabric patterns and would be amazing on a bustier : )

The New York Beauty is my all time favorite quilt.. I've done one too!

You did a fantastic job on your New York Beauty quilt - it is particularly impressive that this is only your third quilt!! Thanks so much for posting some of your alternative settings, as well - it is always fun to see those. I'm glad you also posted the close-up of your crane corners that you cut out, as those were difficult to see on the course platform. You are turning into a really great quilter!!

Well, after a year I finally decided to quilt this top myself. It is done and I am now putting the finishing touches on the binding. We have a long arm quilting machine and I used three different technics to quilt it. Some free motion, some pantograph, and some etched boards. Pictures to follow.
