What materials did you use? Cotton Fabric

What are you most proud of? The way the blocks seamlessly connect and carry the design true to the Balkan Framed Square - especially the corner to corner transitions. I was also pleased to find the Balkan Chevron pattern is a natural result of the true BFS quilt design.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make at least one sample block, perhaps more, before proceeding with an entire quilt. Had I done this I would have discovered how the centers of the squares come out. I don't like them and will now do another version with a different complimentary fabric. This time I'll make blocks and join a few before proceeding. I want to make a twin size spread to use when company comes and I want to be happy with the final product. I'll finish this top with a wide border in the circles pattern later.

This is very interesting... and I see what you mean about next time using a complimentary/contrasting fabric. Thanks much for sharing -- and I love the Balkan Frame square I made for my BOM quilt. You're such an inspiration.
