What materials did you use? Large floral pattern for squares, repeated on borders - all cottons. First time I tried quilting - instructions were in a class but I don't have the notes for it. All machine quilted by me so not the best job.

What are you most proud of? Finally finishing it. I started the project in June 2010 and finally finished with the binding in Feb. 2012

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't try doing a huge quilt for your first project - it was almost the death of me, especially the quilting on the machine on the dining room table....

How did you know how much material to buy of each color so it would work out for the bed top. Is very pretty. Is that a queen. size. I want to do one.

I think I found some of the instructions.... Pattern is a 4-patch posie also known as a 4-patch stacked posie. For a twin size the instructions called for "4 repeats of focal fabric with 2 yards extra if you want to use for borders; 1-1/2 yards for sashing, and 1/4 yards for setting stones." The sashing in mine is the white pattern while the stones are the green pattern. I'm not sure how many yards of each I ended up buying (still have some stashes of all). Finished size fits my queen size bed. I can't remember how big my floral squares were (the quilt is tucked away right now) but I'm sure they were about 7-8 inches... Good luck and enjoy!
