What are you most proud of? That it finally looks 'finished'. So pleased to be confident enough to quilt this first little quilt and see how much I have learnt since making it in September 2011 for my first granddaughter Lily-Kate. All thanks to Crafsty and their wonderful classes .

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This class is excellent, I fully recommend it.

Very nice.Did you do the quilting by hand or machine.

Thank you, I did the quilting with my home machine which I prefer as I think hand quilting would be too slow!

Just remembered that I actually stitched in the ditch by hand as was too nervous to use my machine as this was my first quilt.

Do you know the name of this quilt so that I can look for the pattern online?

I am so sorry but I do not know the name as I just saw a picture and copied it... it is half square triangles and squares. I intend to measure it and post the measurements on here very soon.

Hi love the quilt, I am doing my first quilt at the moment. I am having trouble getting all my layers to lay flat. I have tried 3 times now,, put lots of pins in but the back still looks rippled. Any tips as yours looks nice and flat.

I went online and searched for how to sandwich a quilt and went by that. I laid it out flat on the floor and stuck it down. Then I smoothed the top onto the batting and rolled it up. Then placing very carefully on top of backing I rolled it out flat from one end to the other. Then pinned it. Hope this helps.
