    I had a hard time trying to get myself to to curves. I did it and I don't like them much....but I think they are beautiful. Here is a picture of the quilt that I"m most proud of. I'd love to see what everyone else is the most proud of.

    I don't think that way. I learn something from each one.

    Here's what I'm most proud of -- because, although, I designed it and engineered all the worker bees, it was made as a memorial quilt for 911 for a local fireman on the 1 yr anniversary of the disaster. It hangs in the fireman's union hall.

    You should be proud, that's beautiful! I haven't tackled curves yet, but I figure they can't be much different than putting in a sleeve and I never freaked out over those. ;)

    This hanging which I've posted before. I learned to do "points" and curves and it worked wonderfully!

    I think my lone star quilt in my avatar is the one I'm most prod of even tho there are mistakes on it and I machine quilted it and people ask me if I have a long arm and when I tell them no, they don't believe me. Well I do in a way,, one arm is longer that the other. LOL! But I also learn some thing new on the quilts Imake. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    My biggest fmq undertaking so far, a king size, free motion quilted without marking, on my Janome 6600. The reason I bought this machine, and so pleased I did.

    i haven't made the one i'm most proud of yet. My grandmother on my mother's side died when my mom was 7 yrs old.(1944). My aunt gave me a bunch of diamond shapes that my grandmother cut out and she actually started a Tumbling Blocks quilt. (There was a small group of pieces sewn together.)

    My problem w/ the Tumbling Blocks is that it doesn't show off all the diamond pieces that my grandmother cut out, and i found this as an inspiration picture..Carpenter's Wheel. I'm going to make it for my mom.

    I'm going to have to look at the pieces, but i'm hoping to do the sashing in blues & whites. Blue is my mom's favorite color. I'll use the Tumbling Blocks that is already started as part of a block on the front or the label on the back.

    I get goose bumps thinking of it!!! It's my next project after i finish my aunt's quilt

    All are just stunning, and I think the one I am most proud of is the "next" one.

    I read this before and didn't even catch it...lol...one arm longer than the other. That's funny. I learn from each quilt too. Some I just enjoy to make and others not. The ones I don't like to make...I just don't again....lol. Your quilt is wonderful and so is everyone else's on here.

    I think they are all awesome!! WoW!!! :thumbup:So much talent here!!

    It's hard to say which quilt I am most proud of. I am proud of each of them because they are not ufo's!I guess I am proudest of the king oversized quilt I call Psyche.It was the biggest project I have taken on up to now.
