What materials did you use? I used quilting cottons from my stash: a few Tula Pink Parisville prints, one of Sarah Fielke's From Little Things prints, some Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush and a light purple geometric that I think was Robert Kaufman. The plum and lavdender solids are Kona.

What are you most proud of? I love the play of colour in this project, especially the pops of cerise (the deep, rich plum).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The piecing looks a little mind-boggling, simply because it isn't following the usual grid of patchwork, but it's much easier than it appears. Sarah's instructions are excellent.

Thanks! I love how it turned out...but just realized that I never got a photo of it quilted. I really love the way it turned out.
