What materials did you use? Blues and creams fabric from Connecting Threads.com. This is a turning twenty pattern. Red binding and red cap corners for a color pop. This was machine quilted by a friend using a long arm and a linear pattern of squares and line which was very effective.

What are you most proud of? I decided to put a red binding for a color pop! This was given to my husband for our 18th wedding anniversary. He loves it. Well, he loves me and likes the quilt.....lol

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have lots of color contrasts. It doesn't work if your fabrics are not varied in light and dark shades. Have a fun binding planned to give it a bit of a flare.

I love this quilt, especially the color combos... could you tell me which turning 20 book you got this pattern from? Ive looked on line and cant figure it out. there are many turning 20 books out there now and dont want to buy all of them to find it

It was a little book with only a few patterns. It was more of a pamphlet. I will look in my box the next time I go to the storage and get the book. I am going to sell off all my books and will let you know when if you are interested. Thansk!

Thanks so much. Sorry to be late in getting back to my followers. I am so amazed that anyone wants to see waht I do. I am old. That may explain my versatility. LOL! Well maybe 60-ish isn't old but I have my days.....right?
