What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you have quilt tops waiting to finish, don't be afraid to try quilting them yourself. This was my first large quilt that I did myself after taking Ann's course.

Really lovely. Which quilting technique from Ann's class did you use?

I quilted the whole quilt on my domestic machine. In the center I did some swirl designs. In the first rust border I did some leaves on vines. In the green border I did some feathers. I used a green thread in the green border so my feathers are not very visible. I'll know better the next time.

I also like it very much and have saved it for future reference.

Thank you, Ana. I saw your block of the month January square. Very pretty. I have one cut out myself to try next!

I Love your fabric choices and your great eye for color in all your projects! I am very impressed that you did all this beautiful quilting on your domestic sewing machine! I have not attempted such a large quilt yet for FMQ on my machine. I have this same pattern and strip ruler from Cozy Quilts. Can't wait to try it out!

Thank you for your kind words. The classes I have taken here on Craftsy.com have given me the instruction and courage to try FMQ on my domestic machine. I really like the Cozy Quilt patterns. If you do make a Trade Winds quilt, I hope you post it for all to see.
