What materials did you use? I used the Redwork Rendezvous collection to get those perfect coordinating reds. I elected to make a scrappy binding using my leftover fabrics, and I am thrilled with how it turned out.

What are you most proud of? This quilt top was pieced in 6 crazy days.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's simple, but you need to measure exactly and have a plan for how the fabrics go together or you'll go nuts doing final layout.

I'm sorry, I don't remember. It's a commercially available pattern, and I did link it. The quilt was a gift, so I don't have it to measure, and the pattern (along with many others) has gone AWOL in our most recent move. The reds came from The Virginia Quilter. I had a hard time finding reds that I loved.

I'm sure a 5 or 6" square could be used, depending on how large of a quilt you wanted. I've seen some in very scrappy fabrics that looked good too. May have to put it on my bucket list!
