What are you most proud of? I just don't have a large enough table or the floor space to sash my quilt the way Amy showed so I had to improvise, I sashed each block individually and then stitched them all together before adding my border of 2.5in x 4.5in rectangles. I just have to work out now, how to place my batting and backing cloth without spoiling all the hard work, Any suggestions will be gratefully received :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just go for it, I've enjoyed every minute of Amy's course, I never thought I'd have so much fun learning.

Oh so pretty and your border is just a perfect finish to your blocks. Well done! Can't wait to see it completely finished... so exciting!

Thank you Pam, I can't wait to see it finished either, I'm having a bit of a dilemma, due to the size of the quilt I don't have enough floor space in any of my rooms to actually lay it out to sandwich it ready for quilting! I'm determined to get it done though, somehow this space :-)

I have the same problem! I just treated myself to a folding trestle table... been great for the piecing of my tops! Cindy Needham (in Design it, Quilt it) shows a great way to handle it on a trestle sized table! Just a thought. :-)

I love the way that you have created the border, this is striking and I absolutely love the colours. I like you, don't have a big enough table or floor space to sash, but one I did for a queen bed I too batted and quilted the individual blocks and then jointed with a strip back and front together. It came out OK - see my pink/green quilt (my picture).

Thank you Jenny for your very kind words, I have had a look at all your wonderful creations and I see what you mean about your pink/green quilt it's brilliant and love your colour choices.

Thank you for all the ideas you've given me with regards sandwiching my quilt, I have recently subscribed to Leah Days class and managed to get my hands on an old gate let dining table which is proving to be ideal, but instead of using elastic as Leah does, I have been using large bulldog clips to hold my layers in place, unfortunately I've run out of safety pins about 2 thirds down and so it is on hold till more get delivered will get completed...eventually :-)
