What are you most proud of? I love how these fabrics worked together. This is one of the first quilts that I have done with just batik fabrics. I generally work with brights, but it is fun for me to sometimes do a quilt in all cool colors, like this one. It makes for a very calm, relaxing quilt despite all those sharp points. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch me demonstrate in the video how to do the Quick-Strip Paper Piecing and different options for the curved piecing in the New York Beauty lessons to make the top. For the machine quilting, just go for it, and practice, practice, practice!! I'm still working on improving my own machine quilting! Be sure to check out the wonderful machine quilting classes here on Craftsy for inspiration and information.
