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!

How's your quilt coming along??!

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

I got the quilt but cannot find the instructions on line. Help.

Drag down the menu next to the search box, open "My Craftsy". Then look at the menu bar on the left side of the page and click on "My Patterns". You should find it there. Got it?
