What are you most proud of? I was happy with the choice of a large floral fabric for the backing and the decision to quilt from the back. This linked the strippy front and the design on the back. I used the outline of the flowers as the quilting motif. If you make the bias binding from the backing material, it also helps to unite front and back.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? At first I didn't think the colour combinations would work but I persevered and finished the quilt top. The pieces come together in interesting ways that are difficult to appreciate at the outset. Be brave and go with the flow - you'll get a fun, scrappy result!
