What are you most proud of? I'm mainly self - taught and have made 2 king size quilts without patterns and I'm really pleased at how well they have turned out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use whatever fabric you have to hand and don't worry too much about matching colours. It will look great no matter what you use but do try to ensure that all fabrics are of the same weight. Your individual squares can be of any size you choose but keep to the same size once you have decided. Again, the borders can be of any width as long as you keep it the same throughout. It helpful to sketch your design out first.

This is really nicely done. I too am a fan of old style quits done out of necessity. There's just a really simple beauty about them that brings warmth and comfort. Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad you like it. My next step is to find some suitable backing fabric and get it layered up ready for quilting. Thanks for your comment.
