What advice would you give someone starting this project? I had never tried free-motion quilting before -- and my results this time are quite primitive... if you are just starting the quilt, try to start practicing your quilting as you go along. Then when you are actually ready to quilt you will be more coordinated!

This looks great! Really vivid colors, set off with gray sashing and border! And I really like the binding; it looks like either gray and white polka dots, or light lavender with white polka dots. Between the gray border and the binding, it frames the quilt beautifully. I'm waaaayyyy behind on my blocks; just did May yesterday and June today. Tomorrow I will work on July and hopefully August. I can't wait to see how my finished product will work out! You have inspired me!

Great colors! I like your use of a neutral for you sashing.
