What materials did you use? Used tiny pastel florals. This is from a book by Kaffe Fassett called Country Quilts. It is an herringbone pattern using lights and dark's and alternated the rows to make them appear like a herringbone print.
What are you most proud of? I was able to find a home for it when I bought some items off eBay from a gal who was going to have a baby. When we moved to the desert to retire, I sent it off to Amy who had a boy. She loves it I am sure.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Gather lots of prints in tiny pastel flowers and then buy a diamond ruler. Separate them into lights and darks and start sewing them up forming a long row of the same shades and then sew a light row to a dark row until you have the top as big as you want. In this case it was 40" x 60". A good size for a crib or bassinet. Use a larger print for the border. No need for sashing. Use a washable muslin as the backing or a nice solid color. St in the ditch for quilting. Bind it with a few scraps sewn together. You are done! Enjoy it or give it as a gift to a new mom.
