What are you most proud of? I did most of this by hand! I'm also really happy about the how the fabrics work together.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try different arrangements with the squares.

gorgeous! this layout actually has a name. It is Polka Dot. I saw it on Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day show. Eleanor said back in the day, children never slept under a drunkard's path quilt because they would grow up to be drunkard! lol

Thanks for the info! Makes sense, and I think the pattern would be great for a kid's quilt.

Your fabrics really do work together well. I did a very similar block on my BOM quilt and called it "Beach Balls" because that's what it reminded me of. I didn't know about the Polka Dot name for it!
