What are you most proud of? The fun creative process. The "boat" on the water was part of a hexagon I trimmed off the #7 block.... sometimes your scraps sing out to you!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This one evolved as I (we ~ my sons were FULL of suggestions) went along. We were kind of going for the beautiful lantern scene in Disney's version of Rapunzel called "Tangled" (cute movie). Just have fun. I'm sure I broke several quilting rules, but it's my quilt. :D At least all the parts are hexagons!

This is one for the wall! I just love this block. You've taken the simplest and made it uniquely involved. Wonderful work!

You on the otherhand created a masterpiece. Keep those in the car to do as busy work. Love it, it is beautiful.

TY WVLISA! I starched and pressed around the templates, and machine basted, and then machine sewed these on. Avoided a lot of the hand stitching that way. My hand freeze up on me at unexpected moments. I'd probably do the same for a pillow case, just because of the use they would receive.
