What are you most proud of? How well the ladies did sewing strips of fabric together in the pattern laid out for them. It is kind of hard when you can't see to well but they did a great job and are very proud of themselves as I am of them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Lay out your fabrics until you get the shading you want. Take your time. If you are not a "precise type of person" then make sure you put a border in between the blocks as it does require a lot of matching if you don't put a border in. Frame the quilt with a plain border to let your fabric pattern stand out. When you make your strips, you will use a triangle ruler to cut out your triangles. You will be about three pieces from a 45" strip if you want a 8 or 9 inch block depending the the width of your strip, ie 1", 1 1/2" or 2". Play with the triangles until you come up with a layout you like, then quilt.

How very precious! I don't think it mattered to Kirsten how precise anything was.
