What materials did you use? I got the kit and pattern from Craftsy for my Christmas present from DH! I jumped right in and started making it two days later!

What are you most proud of? I made this quilt, start to finish, in 10 days! I custom quilted it myself.

I increased the template size so I could use my square rotary ruler for the template. I bought Minkee for backing from Craftsy, and changed the dimensions of the quilt to work with the Minkee size. I custom quilted it on my longarm, using different free motion fillers--ribbon candy, butterflies, flowers, hearts, swirls, paisleys, snowflakes and meanders. So colorful, cheerful and soft!!! I heart it!!!

I just recieved my fabric [yippee] but I'm confused about "to make yardage from strips" how much is this? Do I sew 3 strips together or 10 or what? linda

That's a good question! I typically sewed through the rainbow color order once, then cut my square, counted my squares and made another rainbow section, etc. The sections got longer as I went on! I posted a photo of one of my last sections. It should be the last photo now. I did cut my squares 6" so I could use my rotary 6" square as template, and cut around them with a rotary cutter--much faster than drawing around & scissor cutting!

thanks for your interest & encouragement! I decided to finish several UFP's-mostly- because I'm still unsure of this cutting process if the color fabric. I did look at the photo again and saw the bottom of the fabric strips- you do cut them on an angle. I am fair at math and cutting so I am unsure and don't want to ruin it. I again appreciate your answers! linda in ohio
