What materials did you use? Lots of wild blue prints and a patchwork-patterned border print.

What are you most proud of? Using the printed patchwork as the background and borders. Never call it 'cheater cloth' again! The printed patchwork is small-scale and makes the hexagons pop without being a distraction. Now it's Printed Mosaic fabric and just another opportunity for using subtle lined fabric.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Everybody's got a favorite color. If you're a quilter, bet you could assemble this top from one-of hexies from your faves. Oh, and at the seams, NEVER sew beyond the 1/4" line or the pieces won't fit together nicely.

My favorite color so of course I love it!

I want to make a diamonds quilt as seen at the Sochi Olympics. Many of your fabrics are similar to theirs. Where can I find them? I have a few like paisley on order, but I wish I could find a whole collection.
