What materials did you use? asst'd fabrics appropriate for a 1920's era quilt

What are you most proud of? 128 blocks total. No 2 alike. I had to add some others to make it fit my bed. So I found 17 more blocks that were appropriate. It fits my queen size bed. This was hand quilted by my mother using black thread. And it also took home a blue ribbon at the Oregon State Fair.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure your templates print out at the right size to make a 6" finished block.

I have the book and actually read it. Saw her last year at the Madison Quilt Show. Would love to do one.... some day. Yours is BEAUTIFUL!
