What materials did you use? I used almost all cotton from Moda's "Paris Flea Market" line by 3 Sisters, as well as a few fancy fabrics. Threads were cotton floss, floche and perle all by DMC; silk ribbon was 4mm and 7mm by Riversilks. A scattering of beads, premade fabric flowers, and laces were used as well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the Class Materials for reference after you've watched the videos and you should do fine.

This quilt is very inspirational, as was your class. I watched your whole class and have started going through my fabrics to choose the best colours for my crazy quilt. I am favouring the pink pastels but not sure of the drama colour yet. I have worked with silk ribbon so really look forward to embellishing with that. I even bought 'lace' placemats and cut them up already in anticipation. Thanks for your great class.

Very pretty, haven't gotten to watch much of your class, my computer , or internet , or something doesn't do good. But enjoyed every bit that I did get to see.
