What are you most proud of? Most of the points came out well :)! This quilt was beautifully quilted by Lillian Lee of Laguna Hills, CA.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I changed up the pattern a little bit using Eleanor Burns flying geese templates - there was a lot less waste in making the FG and the quilt came out a little larger since you can only make her geese certain sizes. However, next time I would use this method for making the geese which is found here: http://thelastpiece.typepad.com/the_last_piece/2009/05/flying-geese-tutorial-1.html . There is still very little waste but I think there is less trimming to do. There is also a very cool ruler called the Wing Clipper which helps trim up FG perfectly!

A beautiful quilt!!! Lovely colors! It would be delightful to cuddle up under on a chilly evening by the fireplace! (Skip the cocoa tho, wouldn't want to spill on that lovely white background!!) :)

Love this quilt, and all your work. I am drawn to traditional patterns myself.

Thank you! I like the mix of the traditional blocks set in white because I think it updates it while keeping the traditional blocks. This was a fun quilt to make.
