What are you most proud of? Making a whole quilt on my own for the first time, even though I hadn't finished the "learn to quilt" course at the quilting shop. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I can't recommend this book too highly for absolute beginners as it covers lots of different techniques with clear instructions for a quilting project using each one - eleven in all. This is where I first found out how to make a Quillow (the author calls it a "Cushion Quilt" or "Surprise Package Quilt"). It's a wonderful book for a raw beginner and even a more experienced quilter might possibly find something useful in it.
