What are you most proud of? I think it looks ok but of course I have not yet quilted it. this is a large queen size quilt which I am attempting to do on my home sewing machine-I hesitate and procrastinate but my daughter is getting impatient. Will post the finished quilt on bed when done.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have lots of choice in fabric if you want the scrappy look. Trim diamonds before trying to sew them all together. I did not use his templates but cut using my ruler and it was soooo much simpler.

beautiful fabrics! a real stunner. I can see this as stitch in the ditch diamonds and then little pearl buttons sewn in the centers

good idea-I already thought I would stitch in ditch-I have not shown the back which is a quilt it self so I need to think of what it will look like there. hmmm

I like the things you have added to the site, but this one is my favorite. Colors are beautiful. Nice choices, Mimi

Thank you-I think blue and white has been my favourite combination since I was a kid.

Gorgeous Mimi! Simply fabulous work. The colors are perfect. The composition could not be better. Lucky daughter. I'm sure she'll treasure this for years to come :D

Oh, wow! This looks SO similar to a quilt I made my daughter last year. It was queen sized, but I hand quilted it as it was too big for a regular machine. I will try to find how to post a pic of it.
