What are you most proud of? How I did it all myself, including the hand dying of lace for the small borders.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't try to finish in a short time. Take your time and enjoy each block. Keep at it- the finish WILL come.

From May 2011 to February 2012. I made them as individual blocks- applique, embroidery, quilting- then joined them using the Sharon Pederson method.

This quilt is a piece of art. It could be entered into a contest and win first prize.

No thanks- don't want the worked looked at too closely- far too many flaws for competition- but I am happy with it, as are my kids.
