What materials did you use? Cotton patterned fabric

What are you most proud of? The ironing involved in this project was complicated like a puzzle, but worth the trouble. Also, this is my very first quilt!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Purchase a cutting mat. I cut everything for this project on a kitchen cutting board with a rotary cutter, though that worked fine, it was stressful. UPDATE: I have since purchased a large cutting mat!

Oh wow, a cutting board? I say invest whenever you can in the tools you need. The mats are awesome. I am inspired by your quilt. I was wanting to make a quilt for a neice and wanted just the right pattern, have been hesitating to make it. I think yours looks lovely and an easy pattern. Did you have any problems with this pattern?

In the block of the month class where they describe how to cut half square triangles quickly I found that I should have used a 6 inch square instead of the recommended 5.5 inch square. I was supposed to be able to cut diagonally and get four 3.5 inch squares, but I found by the end that I had at least 40 of 168 total squares that were more than a quarter inch off. If I had just had bigger squares to start off with my cutting wouldn't have been so long and tedious. I made the doll quilt from the reject squares to teach myself how to do each step before committing to it in the bigger quilt.

What a great job! The story behind the quilt is very moving.

Beautiful! And a lovely memorial for the lady. What a good idea to make a doll's quilt with the odd bits - well done! Yes - you really MUST get a proper cutting mat - it really will be a worthwhile investment and I'm sure you'll do lots more quilting now you've made such an excellent start.
