What are you most proud of? I finished it in about two hours, including the borders. Now, I just need to add the binding. The quilting went a bit awry when I started with metallic thread and had a devil of a time with breakage. I soon switched to regular thread to save my sanity!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient when lining up the blocks and the inside diamond, its a bit fiddly.

Wonderful quilt! This is the same pattern I used on my trick or treat quilt. I didn't curve my edges on the middle blocks but think I will the next time I use the pattern.

Thanks. I am going to make one with 5" squares and leave the centers square.

I love your new project. Your stitching is so perfect, I could never do that. I admire people with your kind of talent. I'm just starting at piecing quilts together. I am too afraid to quilt so I normally tie my quilts. Hopefully one day soon I can take classes in quilting . I'm self taught at all that I do craft wise. Anyway, Thanks for sharing your beautiful art work.

You're welcome. Keep practicing your quilting, you will get better with time. Do some stitch in the ditch or straight line echoing around your piecing. It looks great and is fun to do! That's where I started.

Love your colors...made this quilt last year as a Christmas present from 10 min. blocks, also found on YouTube. Loved it and have the book plus a second publication by the same author, really fun. You are going to be one of my favorites to follow, your work is very special. Thanks for sharing
