    You can do it! I did my first about a month ago and now I don't want to stop. You can do pretty much whatever you want with the quilting. Just look at the pattern of the material and go with whatever you're feeling.

    And like Holly, I've had to do a fair share of stitch ripping myself. Big woo! what's the worst that can happen, you have to use different fabric? SHOPPING! :)

    That's one thing I thought about too. One of the reasons I bought fabric for 86 cents/yd. :)

    It took me forever to start mine. But it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought. Once you make one you wonder why you didn't start earlier.

    I was really nervous about making my first one too, but when all was said and done, it really was not hard at all. There is a tutorial in the tutorial section that has pics and the explanation is great. I'm working on my 2nd bow tuck now so I can sell it:)

    I had mine for months before I figured it out. I was stuck on one of the first few steps, don't even remember what one. Then one day when I was looking at it, it dawned on me what to do. I did have to go to my LQS at the end and they helped guide me through the last step or two but it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. I just bought the mini bow tucks pattern and material for it. However, I MUST finish some UFOs before I start on it!

    You CAN do it! And remember, the seam ripper is your friend.
