What are you most proud of? My lines are a little straighter without using a ruler as a guide.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I like marking the dots - gives me a definite target. I still don't know what I will do in the borders. And stitching in the ditch took FOREVER! But I am a fan of Cindy Needham's ESS (Every Stinkin' Seam) - in my case, it's MESS (Most Every Stinkin' Seam) LOL!

Stunning Darns - after having just being to a quilting exhibition here with quilts from 1700 to 1945 - I really appreciate all the efforts that go into quilting. I just love your centre star it really stands out.

She really "got" your class didn't she! Do you ESS or not? On longarm and/or on domestic. I too love So Fine -- recently purchased a Juki longarm and love it but I do smaller things on my domestic . . .

Fabulous creative quilting! Did you really ESS everything first? I also took Cindy Needham's class and realize how lovely it makes a quilt but for the first time I got tiny pleats in the back of my quilt using Ess and I pin like a crazy woman. I now have a longarm so perhaps the Ess will be different. Do you use a longarm or domestic or midarm?

Thank you! Yes, I did ESS almost everything. I use a domestic machine. I don't pin baste anymore after taking Ann Petersen's classes - her method of spray basting using 505 works so good for me! No pleats or tucks!
