I just started mine.  I'm using Civil War reproduction fabrics.  I've finished two blocks so far and I'm having so much fun picking the fabrics out and then piecing.

Does anyone else have a blog that you are keeping track of your progess on?  I love reading how others are coming along and the techniques they are using. Smiley

I use the cotton fabric sheets that you can print straight from your home printer onto.  I customize the label, print it, and then hand applique it onto the quilt.

One tip passed along to me when I started hand quilting was to thread 4 or 5 needles and keep them close by, like on your pincushion.  Having several threaded needles will keep you from using pieces of thread too long that will twist up into knotty messes.

Oh, and definitely quilt from the center of the quilt.  I use either a larger standing hoop or a slightly smaller hoop that I can put in my lap.  Also, you don't want to make the quilt layers too taut in the hoop; have a little bit of "play" because that makes it easier to rock your needle back and forth between the layers.
