Thirdly, I've always wanted to try this quilting design from the book. So after many, many doodle pages I felt like I was as ready as ever. It's amazing to me, that when you actually start quilting on a "real" quilt instead of a practice sandwich, your quilting does improve. The pictures in this book are incredible. Thank you Laura for a great book!!
Lastly, I didn't buy a single piece of fabric, but used only those fabrics already in my stash (that feels so good sometimes). Not all the fabrics really worked, but I was running out of Wonder Under, so I left them in. Now that I'm looking at these pictures, my quilting isn't exactly the same as Laura's, but for my first try, I'm pretty pleased. It looks really happy and springy in my office.
