What are you most proud of? I'm really happy with the vibrant colors. As with alot of my work, this is very scrappy. I tend to get bored easily without the stimulation of working with a large number of fabrics, so scrap quilts keep me awake and interested long enough to finish the top.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did this quilt with foundation piecing, and that allowed nice matching from block to block. A secret of mine is, I don't use fabric or paper for the foundation. Instead I use coffee filters. I iron them flat, and trace the block onto each one. I press the seams open, and once you quilt and wash your project, the filters pretty much disappear as far as bulk is concerned.

Very clever! Looking closely, it looks like a kaleidoscope block and a snowball block. Did you design it or use a pattern for it? It's really beautiful. Love the border too!

Very clever! I love the bright, scrappy colors & the 2 block combo. Coffee filters are very intriguing. There's a wash-away foundation available too. I use it for applique but haven't tried it for foundation piecing.

I would be interested in purchasing the pattern. Is it commercially available? Very nice job!
