What materials did you use? Fabric Freedom's "Pure Velvet" cotton fabric, some Michael Miller "Fairy Frost" and some cream tonal from my stash, plus Mettler cotton thread and Hobbs polyester wadding (batting).

What are you most proud of? Using this really lovely fabric ("Pure Velvet" by Fabric Freedom) has meant that the finished article is nice and bright and cheerful. It features lilac, sweet peas, violets, hydrangeas and hyacinths. No wonder I couldn't resist it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Design as you go. Karin Hellaby's book "Sew a Row Quilts" would give you lots of ideas. Her book "Magic Pillows, Hidden Quilts" gives instructions for making a quillow.

Thank you - it was very well received when I gave it to Jacqueline two years ago. We're off to see her in a few days' time, so I hope to see that she's still using it!

I'm still not tired of purple, believe it or not - we've just redecorated our kitchen in purple!
