What materials did you use? Learned new technique on BOM with Amy. I did not mark squares, just grabbed my blocks and the unused strips. Backing is flannel and it was wrapped to front forming binding.

What are you most proud of? Finishing it! I plan to make another one real soon.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it, cut your blocks out and then put those scraps in a bag and enjoy sewing. My lap size is 15 total blocks, a lap size. I did not add batting and used flannel for the backing. To quilt I used decorative stiches, just practice effect of differnt stiches. I also used different threads, some varigated. I think this type of quilt is vey forgiving.

Lap size sounds a good idea, full size sounds a bit too daunting just yet, Jojacks.

This is an easy size to finish. Good luck, you could finish in a few weeks, just do a little each day or so.

Thats eye candy! Lovely color scheme. I like the striped border. The white sashing makes it pop! Adorable. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Thank you - the white is not sashing. The blocks were made on white blocks. Start laying fabric on the from one corner to the other and leave a strip of foundation uncovered. Then when it is pieced together - the white appears as sashing. Thanks again for your comments.
