What was your inspiration?
What are you most proud of?
Everything squared up as I went. I had no problem with the 4 inch borders. The block trimmed out at 17 1/2" with no problem.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I chose to do Option A for this quilt and Option B for my floral quilt. I did not pair the D fabrics. Instead I used HSTs for the D pieces. I was concerned the polka dots would become too busy and overwhelming after using option B for this large block in my other quilt. In the end the 4" borders tone down the size so much I think the center looks small. For now I'll leave as is. When it comes to assembly I may change it - either replacing the border with setting pieces or changing the border fabric. For now its wait and see.
