Rainbow Sherbet quilt

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Sherbet Link to website or photo www.handmadebyalissa.com/category/modern-minimal/ What are you most proud of? This is the most "detailed" custom quilting that I have done to date on my longarm machine. Though it took a long time to complete, I am very pleased with the results. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a quilt plan ahead of time. I placed a piece of plexiglass atop the quilt and drew out my intended designs with a dry erase marker before quilting. It saved a lot of missteps, in my opinion. Also, I would suggest that you plan your thread color changes ahead of time. I spent A LOT of time changing thread colors back and forth...!
