What are you most proud of? I did the hand piecing (EPP) of the Diamond Carat block even though I didn't like doing it & am so bad at it. I really like how the quilting turned out on the hexie block.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just have fun playing with fabric & color

Your work is amazing, I am astonished at the intricacy, the wonderful execution. This block leaves me speechless beyond that. WOW

Thank you! Pretty much hated the hand piecing on the diamond carat block - just not my thing!

The colors were what caught my attention, but at closer look the stitches are beautiful! Nice work. :)

I'm having lots of fun with this BOM - trying some of the free motion quilting as suggested but also throwing in some other stuff I learned in all my Craftsy classes on free motion quilting.

Love how you fussy cut Kaffe's art. Love the little star. How fun!

Thanks, Judy! This is fun! Kaffe's fabrics can do no wrong!

Wow Darns this is so striking - love the colours you have used to put it together and as usual your quilting is stunning. I would never go as bold as you have but you have given me reasons to try. Fantastic work.

Thanks a lot, Beth! I decided to try something out of my normal - see if I could pull all these bright colors together.
