Here are some details about my project:

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Haha, just look and see ... I'm not qualified to give advice. But seriously just enjoy the process. I never preshrink my fabric so after the quilt is made and washed that first time it shrinks a bit. That gives the quilt lots of texture and makes it a bit difficult to see that the quilting isn't perfect. Plus it looks nice and old and comfy. on

Well done you! I'm determined to master FMQ, but haven't had the courage to try swirls like that yet - having my fingers crossed doesn't help at all!

I think imperfections are delightful and look whimsical! Hope mine are this good. If we wanted perfectiion, we should just buy computer-stitched quilts! Beautiful and artistic work!

Pretty. It reminds me of how the wind is depicted in story books. :)

Love the character these swirls have. It is a new lovely swir, if you ask me, One with a special feel! . Also love the eneven spacing in individual swirls. It happends to mine alll the time when I am drawing, but never in such a charming way.
