What are you most proud of? It's just a handsome quilt. It is machine pieced and hand quilted, with an appliqued 'turtle' on the bottom left corner (a little whimsical touch I enjoy putting on many of my hand made quilts). What advice would you give someone starting this project? A nine patch is a great starter quilt for beginners, and a wonderful block pattern to use for multiple types of prints. It is also quite easy to hand quilt. One only needs to use the 'squares' and quilt an 'X" across each one to produce a very nice handquilted 'design' that holds the batting well, and is pleasing to the eye.
