What materials did you use? I used motled FQ from Nancy's Notions in various colors against a black backround. The back was one piece of shadowed black on black leaf patter 108" wide. Machine quilted on long arm and hand pieced.

What are you most proud of? That I finally took the initiative to try a whole star quilt, thanks to Craftsy and Jenny Dolan, I did it, one block at a time, very happy I did! ;)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Jenny and just jump in. Start with one block and that will get you hooked. If you're not pleased, do another, until you are happy with it. Remember to have fun!!!

Love the black. Makes the solids appear to be suspended.

Agree, really liked using the blacks, it made the rest of the colors pop....although back is not a good color when you have to do any nighttime sewing...LOL :(

Respect to you for using black. I just purchased a long arm and my first project was very similar to yours - bright batics on black, and I'm in the process of ripping the entire thing because of a tension issue. Black looks good but really sucks. I wear a head torch when I'm working with black!

Beautiful! Amish quilts inspired me to use a black background on my B.O.M. quilt too... very happy with the results!

Beautiful!! Amish quilts were what inspried me to try a black background on my B.O.M. quilt... love the results, but I concur with nighttime sewing... and any hand-sewing! lol "Mature Eyesight" sucks!

I love this quilt. I have purchased fabric to make this. Hopefully I will get to it before the end of the year.
