Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? Cotton patchwork quilt blocks

What are you most proud of? I cut up 28 old patchwork blocks and they died a noble death. Also loved working with the shot cotton for the diamonds and borders.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Time is not the object. Root around and see what you've been saving and can upcycle into this, or another, quilt.

Thanks for asking! I use my own Big Hexie templates that I have specially-cut. There's six in the set and they retail for $29.95. Am just getting ready to go online to sell them. Email me privately at pepcory@gmail.com and I'll make sure you get a notice.

So how would you quilt this? Would you use an all-over (like a stipple) or would you try to highlight portions of each block with an all-over in the purple diamonds and borders?

Haven't figured that out as yet but NO STIPPLING. I think something geometric, in big stitch, maybe lemon yellow or white thread.
