What are you most proud of? How easy the project was. It really went together quickly. The challenge was getting just the right angle for the center rectangle.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? choose fabrics that are fun and easy to work with. Make a big triangle to line up the angle for the center rectangle piece, then make a big rectangle for the center of the quilt and align the rectangle on the angle of the triangle, pin in place , then cut it out.

I shop mostly online these days for fabrics...ConnectingThreads, Fabric.com, J&O, ThousandsofBolts.com, fabricshack, clotilde.com. In person, I shop at Hobby Lobby Hancock Fabrics, and "very choosily", Walmart.

Is it JGO or J60? Is this a fabric website I have not yet found?

Did you "stitch the ditch" or quilt the whole thing, I can't tell. I'm new to quilting and wanted to do a pattern similar to this but I wasn't thrilled about quilting the whole top. My questioning is because most batting states to "sew every 3 to 4 inches"...I didn't know if that meant you had to at least quilt like a square or just lines as in "stitch the ditch" that would look good for this pattern. I HOPE this question makes sense. Any advise would be welcomed.

I stitched in the ditch. When sewing 'every 3-4 inches', you can quilt it in lines or squares or free motion...as long as you have the batting stitched every 3-4 inches. For this quilt, being so small, it was not necessary to do any extra quilting, being that the strips were 2 1/2".

I love the pattern. I do crazy quilting and feel that i could easily adapt it to my satisfaction, using my own choices of materials. I prefer to make small (around 12 x 12 inch squares when framed. I therefore adapt sizes of cuts to be appropriate to the size of the overall finished product with frame.
