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

What materials did you use? Pure cotton fabrics (only three different ones, two of them with metallic highlights), cotton thread, polyester wadding

What are you most proud of? Making a whole quilt on my own for the first time, even though I hadn't finished the "learn to quilt" course at the quilting shop.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I can't recommend this book too highly for absolute beginners as it covers lots of different techniques with clear instructions for a quilting project using each one - eleven in all. This is where I first found out how to make a Quillow (the author calls it a "Cushion Quilt" or "Surprise Package Quilt"). It's a wonderful book for a raw beginner and even a more experienced quilter might possibly find something useful in it.

Yeah! My kind of quilt. I just saw the book on Amazon for $9 and half.com for $5 plus S/H to your location. Great job - very pretty.

Well done - I look forward to seeing a picture of one done by you!

I love the colors and design, but have a hard time believing it was "easy-peasy" Of course, I'm a true amateur...so only an attempt will tell. Thanks for sharing!

Please believe me - this was SOOO easy - only two blocks, and it gives the illusion of being much more complicated than it is. I made it at home whilst actually doing my very first quilting classes, so you couldn't be more amateur than that! Do have a go - I'm sure you'll be so pleased with the results. Good luck!

Oh wow, this is just super dooper - love the design, love the colours, just love it ! K

Thank you - as I said, it was my first "solo" project and was extremely easy.

Pat, what is the book called? I have looked through all of your comments, but cant find it. Would like to make this quilt.

I do apologise, Morag, for not replying before - Craftsy have changed their way of notifying us when someone has made a comment and I therefore missed yours! The book is "Learn to Quilt" by Sharon Chambers, published by New Holland Publishers (UK) Ltd - ISBN 978-1-84773-227-9. They have a website www.newhollandpublishers.com, although I think it may be possible to get the book from Amazon. Hope that helps!
