What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that I actually finished this quilt. It took me a full year of saving scraps before I began to cut and sew. I am notorious for switching gears, and am amazed that a year after purchasing the pattern I actually followed through with the project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This quilt is relatively easy to make. The tracing and cutting is a bit tedious. If you are going to use scraps to make this quilt, I would suggest tracing and cutting each scrap before you stash it. That way, when you are ready to sew the quilt, you won't have hours of tracing and cutting because the shapes and letters will be ready to go.

I've seen this pattern before and love it. You did a really great job! Maybe I'll have to try...

I have this pattern somewhere... and had intended to make one for each of my granddaughters... obviously I am a gear-shifter too! It's as if you smacked up the picture of the original quilt... it's beautifully bright, cheery and wonderful! A whole year of collecting scraps? wow... that's impressive in and of itself. Where were you collecting such wonderful scraps??

I kept the pattern book in my car, and whenever JoAnn's had a fat quarter sale ($1.29), I would take the book into the store and mark off the fabric that I'd found. Other bits of the quilt were sewn from my actual scraps. I ended up purchasing yardage for the borders and the backing, but everything else was scraps and bits on sale. The tracing and cutting of the applique bits took the longest time. Once I finally had everything collected and cut out, the quilt went together quite fast. If you buy the fat quarter bits on sale, you will have enough to make 4 or 5 of these quilts LOL!

I also found this pattern but can't remember where. I used it for my first quilt - for my first great-grandaughter. I did modify it because I was a beginner and was overwhelmed by so many shapes of applique. I made a few blocks with flowers, a few with hearts and left the rest blank, except for a double block in the middle where I appliqued her name, Ava. Thanks for sharing your project, it brought back beautiful memories!

So cute! Just bought the book on Amazon.com for $3.99 (new) - can't wait to start one!
