What are you most proud of? How much fun this is ... and how fast I can cover space. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use good quality thread - I used overlocking/serger thead on the fish quilt and had heaps of issues with thread breaking and eyelashes. I had none of these issues with these practices. After these practices I decided to start the class project as Leah says the best way to improve is to quilt a whole quilt and not get too obsessed about perfection - it's not noticable on a couch or bed quilt.
