What are you most proud of? It's done! My confidence is growing that I will be able to continue working on all the tops I have accumulated. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid of making mistakes, no matter how disheartening the mistake may be. I was upset at the mess I made of the fusible batting. I know now it is something I will never attempt again. I do like the puffiness of the batting so may use the remnants in smaller projects. I suggest testing before stitching on the project. I had some issues with my machine that I was able to catch. When I tried changing thread and no testing I ran into troubles. It quickly taught me to work on a sample! I used my trick of putting painter's tape on the end of the Monopoly every time I started or finished a row. I love the thread ... I simply can't see it! Take it slowly whether it is one feather at a time or only 4" ditch quilting. Focus on the process even when it's not that enjoyable. Each part of the process taught me something. I can now build on what I learned as I go on to my next project.
