What are you most proud of? This was my first pieced quilt I had ever made. This was for a friend who was going through a difficult time. I am most proud of the fact that I finished it!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Because this was the first quilt I ever made and quilted I feel one of the mistakes I made was bobbin thread color. I did a zig zag type stitch over every seam I used blue top thread and a tan bobbin to match the backing material. The problem I found was that in a zig zag stitch the top thread peaked through on the bottom. I didn't know about invisible thread and I think on this particular quilt I would have liked it better. Take pictures!!! I gave this quilt away before taking the final picture, now I ask the receiver to take a picture with the quilt.
