What are you most proud of? That she loved it - she straight away took it to her room and put it on her bed and just sat on it looking at all the shapes!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Looks way more complicated than it actually is! Just try not to have too tight a deadline - finished this at 4am this morning and her party was at 10am - way too close! :)

I love this. I like how the colored squares seem to float and all of the different stitches you used. I'm just learning free motion quilting and this gives me some good ideas! What kind of thread do you use?

For the free motion sunflowers I used a varigated Superior Threads King Tutt thread. They are so beautiful!! If you want some good tips on free motion go to this link on you tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThoN3xA3-10 Leah Day has heaps of examples of different motifs!

Thanks - appreciate your comments, these 2 are the largest quilted things I have made so far, I've only done small things previously and I am loving experimenting with free motion quilting, it takes a lot of practice! I highly recommend doing one of the Wendy Butler Berns quilting courses here on Craftsy! They really help to build your confidence! :)

Thanks for the suggestion, I am signed up for the course, but something always seems to get in the way. I will have to get to it.
