What are you most proud of? I created the quilt without a pattern and most of all finished it in time for her to receive it as a Christmas gift from her grandma. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you don't have a walking foot be sure to invest in one; It will make stitching around those circles much esier. It's also great for stitching in the ditch. I learned that tip from my Machine Quilting Class.
