Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Home Decor
Style Traditional, Casual
Darns on craftsy.com

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.

WOW!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your color scheme. I was looking for inspiration on how I could make this quilt with two simple elegant & not so busy colors that I have in mind. This is stunningly gorgeous. You did an awesome job on this and inspired me to purchase this class. :)

Thank you so much! I like trying to mix things up with traditional patterns/modern fabrics and vice versa.

Thanks for showing your quilt. I was trying to figure out how it would look in union blues with such a limited color palette. It will definitely work!

Love how you toned it down and made it not so busy. It's really awesome!
