What materials did you use? One jelly roll with eight patterns, plus brown for sashing and (eventually) binding, and a couple of funky prints for borders and backing.

What are you most proud of? I just started sewing and these two quilts were the result, no pattern required. I split the prints into two sets and made rail fence blocks, Then, with two completed blocks in hand, I did some math and went shopping for inspiration. I found brown for the sashing, and two different prints for borders and backing. After cutting, sewing, and adding backings, I have enough scraps to play with later, but didn't overbuy. :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Winging it can be fun!

I've stitched-in-the-ditch around each block and the entire sashing, now I need to figure out what quilting to do on each block. I'm torn between a lot of heavy quilting and just a star/flower/design to fill each block. Any suggestions?
