What materials did you use? Cotton fabric and Isacord polyester thread.

What are you most proud of? The effect of the thread over each solid fabric block. It's really an eye catching quilt and I'm so happy the designs worked so well together. I'm also really proud of being able to use so many different designs in one quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Spend time practicing each design on plain fabric sandwich first. You could even stitch out 10 inch squares of each design and create a second quilt to enjoy with your practice time. Once you feel like the design is under your belt then try it out over the sampler blocks. Don't be afraid to travel stitch or use contrasting thread. It really helps to be able to see where you're going and the end result is a fantastic looking quilt!
