What advice would you give someone starting this project? This quilt requires precision with the cutting, with the initial piecing of each diamond, with the piecing of the rows, and finally with joining the rows. This is not a beginner quilt.

jmn111, you are a terrifically talented, and patient, woman! You're quite an inspiration to me. Thank you for all the information. I have a "trunk" of fat quarters that I bought (years ago) from Keepsake Quilting of lovely batik fabrics. I seriously think I'll be doing something like this with the fabric!

I've been collecting images of interesting quilts: http://pinterest.com/jmn111/quilts/ - I'm lucky that I can look at a quilt and see how it's constructed. I take a piece of graph paper then sketch it out; followed by a list of elements (and their dimensions)... I don't really need to purchase patterns because I can figure most designs out for myself. But if you can't, there are lots of lovely books available with wonderful ideas.

Very lovely quilt. I am working on the same pattern but in indigos and it is so interesting to see how each person interprets the pattern. Love the colors.
