What are you most proud of? MY first attempt at designing a picture quilt, without using a pattern.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Draw out the patterns, to scale. Audition your fabrics. The background fabric is not the one I originally chose for this piece. This is a pretty quick piece to put together, with the use of Acugquilt dies for the flowers, leaves and branches. I designed the cardinal myself, following pictures available on the internet.

Thanks, it was easier designing my own than following a pattern that either paper pieced ( which I don't do) or used teeny tiny templates.

Wow, this is nice, but for your first? and your own design? Well, then, it is absolutely fabulous! What a great job you did!
