What are you most proud of? The original design, quilting and the black fabric "stripe" inserts. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't use too many "stabilizers" under the circle appliqu or cut it out somehow. Getting the machine needle through all those layers caused too many skipped stitches even when I used a "jeans" needle. I took the quilt sandwich apart to cut the remaining stabilizer out before I continued with the quilting.
