BOM Christmas Quilt 2012

What are you most proud of? This is the first time I've really tried using free motion quilting to make different designs. It was not easy and my work definitely needs improvement, but I'm learning a little at a time. I also love how the back turned out. Used my leftovers up and looks nice all randomly pieced. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun!

deborahc53 asked:
I love your finished quilt. It's beautiful and I would be very proud to have that in my home at Christmas time. And I love that the quilting isn't perfect. It shows that it was done by a person and not a machine.
shimmerskys answered:
Thanks! I few blocks in I just had to accept the fact that my quilting is not going to look professional, otherwise I would've pulled my hair out :).
