What are you most proud of? I like the colors, and the ribbon of black all over, but mostly, I am proud that I finally dared to Free Motion Quilt most of the project. I did some straight quilting, and stitching in the ditch around the black ribbon, but the open areas, I tried my hand at FMQ. I think I did good - Not great - but well enough to get me excited and looking forward to doing FMQ on my future projects. I am going to give this to my mom as an early Christmas present - I can't wait until December! He he he.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose bright colors with a bit of print and variation in the color. Batiks worked beautifully. Think out the colors, and as always, just take your time and enjoy the process of making this. I certainly did.

I keep coming back to this fabulous quilt. As a retired glass worker I still cannot believe this is done in fabric and not glass.

Thanks, Ladymax. I appreciate your nice words, especially since you were in the glass business, so it sort of makes you an expert! LOL I'm glad you get what I was going for!

Quilt Dude this is just brilliant - love the stained glass look - so glad your Mum liked it - I would like to try one like this in the future.

Go for it, Beth! Gotta love batiks! This was a lot of work, but a lot of fun, and this seems to catch people's eyes when my on has it on her bed. I am also personally pleased with the result.

Oops, when *my mom* has it on her bed.
