What materials did you use? Here is Day 3 work on the Science Friday Queen Size Quilt. (45 blocks) plus a border. I used a variety of cotton fabrics-- featuring a very yellow science symbol themed cotton.

What are you most proud of? While I practice quilt shapes/designs, I know full well I'll need to start putting some thought into "start and stop" positions--to eliminate unnecessary traveling on my next quilt. Right now, there's lots of traveling--but it's a practice quilt, right? I'm troubled by the ocaasional pokie--which are the colorful but unwanted unraveling threads showing up in the ivory blocks between the batting and the quilt top. Have you had this trouble? I'd appreciate hearing your suggestions.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Two more rows to go and I'll be done quilting the Science Friday Queen Quilt. What color would you choose for the binding? Ivory, black, green, or yellow.

Hello 4bird2, I was thinking about you the other day. Did you tell me at one time you used to live in Wild Rose, WI? We went there to look at an old Victorian house--a possible restoration project. Hey, thank you for your great compliment about the Science Friday Quilt.
