What are you most proud of? On this taffeta project I gave myself permission to go with the flow using free motion quilting. Meandering is fun, but experimenting with shapes and negatives space makes me joyful.

This is an absolutely delightful purse. Very interesting quilting design. Makes me think that I really should be more adventurous in my quilting.
