What materials did you use? Indian Summer charm pack, remnants for borders

What are you most proud of? That I had enough remnants and scraps on hand to be able to make borders that matched the charm squares

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Dont cut your backing in half! I folded mine one too many times when I went to rotary cut it...so it looks a little weird now all sewn together. But hey, things don't have to be perfect to look nice!

Your backing looks fine. You should see what I do to my backings. I put another quilt on the back for backing. I cut out 12 inch blocks and sew them together for backing. I frame a panel and use that as a backing. I sew strips together of scrap fabric and use as a backing. The backing of a quilt can be art work too! Just think of all the possible things a backing can become. Don't limit yourself. Be creative.
