What materials did you use? I used a Jelly-roll of batik fabrics.

What are you most proud of? Problem solving! When I sewed the strips together I started at the top and sewed down - all 40 or so of them. I ended up with a huge twisted mess (won't be making this error again). From this mess I managed to create a perfectly 'square' rectangle quilt - quite a challenge. Go me!! Also, this was one of my first attempts to 'free motion' the quilting and i'm quite pleased with this too.

Thanks a lot :)

I love the colors to, maybe you could have added a 3 or 4 inch border of one of the calm colors to give the eye somewhere to rest. You did a beautiful job and it is very cheerful give yourself a big pat on the back.

That is a great idea - it does need a border. I'll think about how i can do this without creating a major job - any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you - I'm almost finished two more quilts and then I might try another one with bright colours. Just not enough hours in the day :)

LOVE your shocking fabric! So nice to work with something different than you usually would.

Thanks 'Art' - it has grown on me and I'm not so 'shocked' when I see it. The beauty of quilting is that it is so diverse. I really need to finish a few more of the UFO'S and continue trying new things.
