What materials did you use? I used a stack of fat quarters that I had in my stash.

What are you most proud of? That I finished the blocks and got it put together, as there were many techniques new to me. Some blocks I liked more than others, but I valued every lesson that came with every block. I feel like I really progressed....now let's see how I do with the quilting. Yikes.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would advise to take your time and to re-read (re-watch) the instructions as many times as you need to prior to starting. I hate the seam ripper!!

Thanks, Scheri. My favorite part of quilting is actually picking out the colors/fabrics to use. I also love the end stage as it comes together.

Thanks so much for the lovely comments. I have taken a few FMQ classes via Craftsy (including Leah Day's) and think I am ready to give the quilting a whirl. I will keep you posted! Fingers crossed.

Thank you...I love the fabric selection stage, but you never know how it is going to come together until the end ;)

Thanks for the kind words. I have been looking at everyone's quilting work and folks have done some beautiful quilting! I'm looking at mine with basting pins all over and hoping I do at least half as well. It has been fun.

I love the bright colors and I also like that you used different background fabrics.

Thanks so much. I decided to have Each block stand on it's own with it's unique background. I am doing this also for the 2013 BOM quilt. I do want to make one with a lot of white background negative space though as a think they are especially beautiful when quilted, but I have yet to select the quilt pattern.

I meant it was scary "cutting", not " jutting" the back fabric. Love this spell check...lol. Lo, I believe I left a comment, but I love you color choices in your quilt. You can't tell by my quilt, but I am much more the traditionalist!

Thnks ConvertiQuilter. I am using different background fabric for the 2013 BOM also. I love white background negative space, especially when quilted. But I have not found the pattern I want yet for that. Can't wait to see your blocks!
