What are you most proud of? I was afraid to mess it up and I totally did!! I just kept going anyway, bad stitching, major puckers and all! Now I can just use it as a table cloth and enjoy it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself permission to practice and learn. Once disaster struck for me, I was able to just have fun and practice, and I learned a lot. I'm amazed it looks this good!

Beautiful! I can't believe it's your first try! I've been wanting to take this class forever, and I may just order it this weekend while the class sale is going on! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you! I love seeing comments from time to time. I did do two smaller pieces first that came out well. This quilt was marked with the instructors stencils when she taught a class at our Guild. It took me a while to attempt quilting it, and as I said, I got puckers and problems. I just kept going anyway! If you don't look close you don't see them. You definitely get better with practice. Cindy is an exceptional teacher!

Practice?? You're kidding, right? It is gorgeous! I don't see any mistakes! I can't believe this is your first wholecloth! NICE.

VERY pretty great job. Can I get the pattern? What kind of fabric was used?
