What are you most proud of? When it came to designing this bag and the designs, I'm most proud of finding a way to teach so many designs in a small space. It's sometimes hard to break up a quilt and showcase lots of filler designs, but for this class we learn 50 with 4 tote bag panels.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? PRACTICE! If you're absolutely struggling with stem centered designs, and feathers in particular, do understand that these shapes take practice to master stitching on a home sewing machine. Practicing on charity quilts, baby quilts, or just ugly fabric you're going to throw away - no matter where you do it, the more you do it, the better you will get.

I just love Leah Day. I've been watching her for a couple of years now. I think she is so talented and just cute as can be. I did a tutorial where her husband was learning free motion quilting. It was so fun and he's just as cute.
