What are you most proud of? The rabbit looked so real when I finished. My granddaughter was so excited when she saw it on my design wall that she started telling her baby doll about it-pointing out the different elements on the quilt. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to try thread painting. It is simply a zig-zag stitch done free-motion style. Practicing on sample fabric is a good idea. I also did not paper- piece a basket in every block of the background. I decided to do every other one. I quilted a basket design in the ones that I didn't paper-piece.
