What are you most proud of? I have 49 unfinished quilts and this is the third one I finished this year. I am so proud. This is my first attempt at machine quilting. I used a template of a circle and did a leaf with a vine going around the circles. I am happy with the results. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you go to Joann's you can get a block of the month for 2011 and beyond (some very nice patterns) Joann even had a Baltimore (applique) available in 1999 (very nice) quilt and finish it as you get each month (with a 50% off coupon). It is very rewarding. All the pieces are precut and that is a dream.
