What materials did you use? Many, many fabrics went into this one. It was again a project with my son, Martin, in 2007. He made all the panels on a Singer 1909 Treadle machine and I sewed up the strips. I backed it with black fabric.

What are you most proud of? That I was able to make it with my son Martin when he lived with us for a while during 2007. He is a very talented wood worker, jeweler, quilter and air-brush artist. He took to quilting like a duck to water.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Buy a Barjello book. That's it. Have a lot of patience and be sure to get the pieces in line so that you get the cascading effect. It is way cool!

This is an ambition of mine to make a barjello quilt King size, as yet I have mastered this technic to make cot sized .Congratulations I hope you enjoy using your quilt .Today I joined Craftsy today and I have a friend we are both self taught quilters and usually get together once a week. Today we have decided we are going to do the once a month block to learn new technics. Books are very good but being shown is much better. Happy new year Sue
