Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Home Decor
Style Traditional, Casual

What materials did you use? Cotton fabrics, Aurifil thread for piecing & Bottomline & Isacord threads for quilting

What are you most proud of? The blocks look pretty good with only 4 gray fabrics & 5 gold fabrics. The quilting looks OK especially after getting all crinkly after washing (hides a bunch of shaky lines!)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut & piece carefully! Besides the stitch in the ditch quilting (all Cindy Needham's fault!), the rest of the quilting came from the Dot to Dot class.

I am delighted with your color choice - - it is very refreshing to see the changes you made. I love to see how different everyone makes their quilt

Thank you, Kaye! It was a great class even though there were so many pieces to some of the blocks! This quilt was my attempt to try a non-traditional color scheme for traditional blocks.

Thank you, KristenMG! This was fun but a little tedious with all the half square triangles.
