What was your inspiration?
I had dabbled in patchwork/quilting, including making a quilt for my daughter when I signed up to do a 'Beginner's Sampler' course at my local quilt shop. My eldest son asked if he could have a quilt too, and we chose a 'universe' theme because we thought he wouldn't grown out of the quilt as quickly!
What are you most proud of?
How the finished product looks, how much my son loves his quilt, and the fact that I used up lots of bits and pieces to make the back of the quilt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't let the fear of it not turning out exactly perfect stop you from having a go. When the blocks are all together you don't notice the parts you didn't quite get right! "Finished is better than perfect" is my motto.
