Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Functional

What materials did you use? Assorted fabrics - 180 5" squares. Sew traditional 9 patch blocks then cut block in half horizontally & vertically. Reassemble the smaller blocks so that no seams match. Sew 4 blocks to a row - total of 5 rows - for 20 block quilt. Add borders, binding, backing, quilt. Add applique or any other decorations you want. This is a fun, easy, creative project.

What are you most proud of? Tristen's Garden was made for a little girl who loves bugs. She was thrilled to get her new quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose one color for the center block of the first 9 patch block. When this block is cut into 4 sections, the center block fabric will appear in each subsequent block creating an interesting design.

Very nice. I love the bug & flowers applique. It's the perfect touch to the geometrics.

Thank you. I used my AccuCut die cutter with the flower patter & the hear & leaf shapes to make the butterflies.

Everytime I use a cotton fabric I take my ruler to the left over & make one 5" slice with the rotary cutter, then cut them into squares. So I now have a big box of srappy charms to start my quilting. I plan on starting with the d9p.
