What materials did you use? Almost all these fabrics are from my stash. Cotton in shades of rust, orange, brown, and green. Background is Kona bone. Backing is a brown pattern. Binding is a green grid on the bias.

What are you most proud of? My mom passes away before I started quilting, so Amy Gibson was the one to teach me the ins and outs of quilting. I think mom would be really proud of my first attempt.

I was just browsing thru the 2012 projects for the Block of the month 2012 and your colors in your quilt really caught my eye. I really admire your choices. probably because I'm too chicken to try the bright colors. I really like your quilt!

Great job! The border you chose really goes so well with your blocks.

The pieced border is the cat's meow for this quilt.

Your quilt is the first I have back up to check out. The borders are a perfect choice. Great job!
