What materials did you use? Small squares are from the new Tula Pink collection but the large squares are cut from stained linens, dish towels, and hankies from my grandmothers, great grandmothers, and mother-in law. All cotton.

What are you most proud of? I was proud that I finally had the guts to cut up these precious linens. Folded up and hidden away, they could not be appreciated - now they can!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Going off the grid(ha!!) on my square measurements was a little stressful. But! if you figure the little squares and the big ones, then the rectangles measurements reveal themselves. Fun!

This is beautiful. I have been wanting to do something similar for quite awhile. Thanks for the inspiration!
