What materials did you use? Good ole cotton quilting fabric, about ten different prints, Warm and Natural batting

What are you most proud of? I like using two different blocks in a quilt that create another design when they are placed next to each other. This block pattern is the same, it just used different combinations of fabric in the second block. It takes a bit of concentration and forethought to come up with prints that work the magic.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Making quilts today has been simplified so the end result looks a lot harder than one would think. Don't let the look fool you, give it a try and wow those non-quilters into thinking you are a wizard. Of course, keep the secret to yourself.

I really enjoy looking at this quilt. The care you took to pick out just the right combination of colors and their placement is absolutely fabulous!!!

Why, Thank you so much. My Red Hat quilt posted earlier is the same pattern.

I like how the sashing adds the illusion of another block. Very versatile pattern & pretty.

One of the reasons I love this pattern so much is that it makes you see things that aren't there. I did not use sashing, there are two blocks side by side with four borders. One of the photos shows the two blocks next to each other.

I looked again. It's even simpler than I had thought! I'll keep this in mind for a future project.

Hi Betsy0 - I just fell in love with this quilt and have finished making the quilt top! I was wondering if it would be ok with you if I mentioned you and this quilt on my blog and here on craftsy when I'm finished my work?
