What are you most proud of? I think the top stitching is not perfect but it is unquie. I did not stitch in the ditch. I love the color of the thread and loved sewing with fancy stitches on my sewing machine.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This quilt is easy as they come. I would have loved to try some hand quilting on this quilt, but then Trena may never get it. I have never done hand quilting but I know it takes far more time than sewing with a sewing machine. I already have my next quilt kit bought and waiting for me. Another challenge as I have never done some of the techniquies on the next quilt. I recommend you change anything you don't like in a quilt kit. I put pink on this quilt where there was other material that I did not like. So make it your own and have fun!

I know Trena will love it. It is terrific and you made it unique with the stitching. Congrats.

Wow! I like that you changed the color scheme within the blocks, that gives more depth and interest to the quilt. Lovely colors - reminds me of a pond. Thanks a lot for sharing.
