Here are some details about my project:

Style Traditional on

What materials did you use? Cotton Scraps left over from Patriota in Petticoats and my stash. Did not buy a thing. on

What are you most proud of? That is is so pretty! on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the class and follow Kaye's instructions. She is amazing. When you are picking colors and fabrics, try and repeat each color about 3 times, like I did with the blue and the rust color. It creates movement and helps pull things together. Again, on the sashings, I tried to coordinate the sashing pieces with the blocks that they surrounded to highlight those blocks. on

Thank you. It was fun to make!

Good Job! I am trying to pull from my stash, too. You are an inspiration.

I love how you framed your entire quilt with the narrow dark border and then used another not-too-busy border as well. I had not heard of the rule of 3, but it sure works for you! Love it!
