What materials did you use? I found an apron pattern with wonderful pumpins and fall leaves, I brought my hubby to the fabric store and he helped me pick out the 12 matching fabrics, alll cottons. The backing is a mottled flannel - I like the feel of the flannel backs.

What are you most proud of? not finished yet, but this is for sure the most difficult of the quilts I have made, which is great for me to get out of my comfort zone - and with my house up for sale the past 5 months, quilting keeps my mind busy

What advice would you give someone starting this project? make sure you can write under the fabric (I used an old sheet) once you start to sew it is nearly impossible to keep track of where each piece is supposed to go. Since there are 12 different fabrics, and each block can't have 2 fabrics the same, and you want to spread out the colours - just write it down

I'm really new in here, what difficulty would you rate this project? You did a magnificent job and kudos to hubby too on helping with the colors. You make a good pair!

thank you jonilyn, it was one of my more difficult quilts I must admit, but if you have some place you can lay out all of the pieces and pick them up in order to sew, and you have lots of patients, you should be ok. I wouldn't do this if you have not already done a few quilts. good luck!

Great job, Brenda. I love bright, strong colors, the dark sashing makes your colors pop. I too made a fall quilt but like yours a bit better.

This is an Australian pattern - stained glass quilt designed by Bob on the secret is when you cut your colours for a block separate them with lunch or baking paper into the blocks required that way you don't get each block mixed up. This is not a difficult pattern but requires accurate seams and cutting.

It is so much fun to see this pattern done with different fabrics. I did mine in batiks. I know exactly what you mean about planning and colors. I ended up with some extra rectangular pieces for just that reason. Your quilt is beautiful!
