What materials did you use? This quilt was made from a kit - "Tonga Treats - Scrappy Rails" designed by Relatively Creative from Timeless Treasures. I had not used a kit before and wanted to try one out. Recent edit: I bought the kit on Craftsy! The finished size is smaller than suggested because my seam allowances were a true 1/4" rather than scant. The final size is about 51" by 37". I also misread the directions so instead of a border the width of the sides of the squares, I have a small border - but it's OK! I used standard quilting materials as well as the fabric that came in the kit which consisted of 40 strips of fabric - 2 and 1/2" wide. Separately, I purchased my backing material and batting. I quilted it by stitching in the ditch of the main seams and am also still stitching in the ditches of each square.

Your tip about the size being smaller because of the 1/4 in seams was extremely helpful, being a first time quilter I appreciate that info.

It is beautiful! I am considering buying the kit and wonder if you used the Mulberry or Napa kit. I do not care for the colors in the darker kits but I love the ones in your quilt.

Thank you... I used the Mulberry kit and really liked the colors! It was very easy to follow the directions and this was my first "larger" quilt. Have not yet made a bed-sized one.

I have purchased the kit but there is no pattern included! Gutted as only bought the material for this particular quilt!

The pattern is on the backside of the picture of the quilt inside the tonga treat package. Im starting this one tomorrow using the Rockport colours.
