Quilting Book Review from Becca's Crazy Projects

It isn't often I add another book to my collection. It is even more rare for me to write a review about one of those books. Today I want to tell you about Step-by-Step Texture Quilting: 65 New Free-Motion & Walking-Foot Designs (affiliate link) by Christina Cameli. I first heard of Christina Cameli when I was still active on Craftsy and Bluprint. There I watched a couple of her classes and enjoyed both.

Dream Big from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 1

I've had this Dream Big panel for a while. I picked it up because it seemed everyone was doing it.
I found a piece of leftover backing fabric that was wide enough to user and I picked my threads. I wanted to blend the thread with the petals so I pulled seven different thread colors. 
I used a double layer of batting and basted the entire panel before beginning. I don't usually baste, finding I get a better result without basting. 
I started in the middle. 
If you look at all the different versions of this ...
