What materials did you use? One jelly roll + two yards of fabric for borders and binding. Additionally, 3.5 yards of fabric were used for the backing.

What are you most proud of? When my friend received the quilt, she cried. She included a picture of the quilt in her Christmas card, which was the kindest show of appreciation that I have ever received.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great first quilt pattern for anyone who wants to try their hand at "points" in a quilt. The finished size is 56" x 67", so it is not too large to work with when using a home sewing machine. Also, if a jelly roll is used, the cutting is very quick and easy. The pattern is well written and the instructions are clear to follow.

What a beautiful quilt! It looks ridiculously complicated but you say it's easy; I'm going to make it. Thanks for posting.

Thanks, Sharonlea! This was the first full sized quilt that I ever made and I found the only difficult part was trying to figure out how to nest the triangles on top of one another.

Also, I just looked at my pattern notes and was reminded that you need to cut all the squares the same way. So either all left to right, or all right to left. You will be messed up if you alternate the cutting direction. It will make sense once you see the pattern. And I wanted to add that I've now used 4 different patterns from this book, some of them more than once, so I feel the book is a great investment.
