What materials did you use? Cotton background and some bits of a Moda Jelly roll

What advice would you give someone starting this project? struggled to sew the circles. I think next time I will use invisible thread

Thanks. When I started the quilt I had no idea how many bits of material we would need as it was my first ever quilting project. Needless to say I have developed a fetish for buying fat quarters> Most of the colours in these blocks came from a Moda Jelly Roll. Wish I knew what it was called. Threw the wrapping away! lol

oh me too, I have so much material I could make 20 quilts. I am just doing a quilt with moda cherish pieces, but I am not finding it that easy, the pieces seem to stretch real easy and the edges are really fluffy (even though they are cut with pinking shears) I know it takes longer but I think I will go back to cutting my own pieces up.

Thanks. When I look at the projects that are uploaded, I realise I have a way to go yet but really enjoying the experiance

Thanks, it unfortunately is still a UFO as I have been too busy with work to sew much this summer :(
