What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is a ton of cutting involved so allow time for that. Also, the applique work takes a while to sew using a machine. It can be done either by hand or with the machine; I would imagine it would take a really long time doing it by hand, but the finished look would be amazing if this method was used. I used 505 Basting Spray to adhere the triangles one row at a time. I also used a disappearing ink pen to mark the wave lines. This enabled me to embroidery them much easier.

This quilt is sweet, and every other warm-fuzzy adjective! I would be so proud of this quilt! Just perfect!

You did a beautiful job on this quilt! I would like to try this pattern. Did you do the quilting yourself and did you do it on a home sewing machine?

Thank you for your kind comment. I quilted this myself using a Brother home sewing machine. I start in the middle and work out in all four directions sewing a quarter of the quilt at a time.

I love this quilt - the colors, the pattern, the quilting! I'm so encouraged to read that you sew on a Brother - that's what I have too. You are able to get such good results - looks very professional!

I love my Brother machine! She's named Laura . Here is what I do when the quilt is anything larger than wall hanging size: I put a card table up to the left of my sewing table to create an L shape. This way, the weight of the quilt lays on the table rather than pulling down and dragging off to the side. I also put Yellow Pages books all around my sewing machine to build up the space - again, this allows the quilt to lay all around the machine rather than hanging, dragging, and pulling. It makes a huge difference in how your machine will sew those stitches (namely tension problems). Practice on small scraps of quilt sandwiches and just have fun!

I so love this Quilt --everything about it--especially how you joined the triangle blocks with thread ----looks like small banners anouncing happy day- look my way. and thank you for the great tips --yellow pages are small here in Wi. :)
