What are you most proud of? Everything seems to have lined up fairly well and is square for the most part.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Jenny's advice to alternate sewing direction when connecting strips, to prevent bowing.

Thank you so much. I've since added the borders, in gray and orange.

I really love this look, You've inspired me to get back to my quilting very soon!!

Thanks! I've started the actual quilting process - really, my first attempt to do this. I'm using a large stipple design on the fencerail blocks, but still have to decide on what to do in the borders.

Absoluately love your choice of colours. You have a wonderful sense of it. To me choice of colour makes all the difference in a quilt. Your well on your way.

Thanks, Deb - but I can't claim credit for fabric choices. I simply bought a jelly roll pack and all the hard work was done for me! I know I couldn't have pulled all those luscious fabrics together on my own!

Love your quilt!

Thanks! It's still not quite done. I've finished most of the quilting - just a couple square feet left, and then the binding.

Beautiful! Did you just start sewing the strips, or did you choose three that you thought went together, sew them and cut/make blocks?

Thank you so much! I matched three strips that contrasted somewhat, sewed them together and cut them to create the blocks. It was a little tricky to make sure no two similar/like fabrics were next to each other. I love this quilt!
