What materials did you use? cotton fabrics

What are you most proud of? I managed to do this entire quilt with 12 fat quarters - this means a pieced back as well as a very pieced binding! But this also means I had very little leftover scraps. Since I can't seem to quilt a straight line even on small motifs, I have decided to embrace wonky - at least it doesn't look like a computer guided machine did it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do as she says - keep those pieces organized. Even then, when I got down to the last 5 squares I had to spend some serious time on my design closet door to get the 11 different fabrics placed properly. Maybe it would have worked if I had just continued to grab different fabrics from the piles but I got nervous about ending up with the last block containing 2 of some & none of the other fabrics.

Thanks a lot! This little quilt is now being used by my brother & sister-in-law as a couch protector for our dogs (they worry about getting their leather sofa scratched by dog nails).

Very nice! Seems a shame that only the dogs are currently using it. I like your quilting choice

This quilt is only 30 x 40 in so not a real useful size. But I do want to make one that is more lap size. Finding 11 different background fabrics that I like is a challenge though - I know I could repeat but - - -

Darns! It's Alyx... cruising through some of the other Craftsy classes. And, my favorite low volume quilt is this one! Imagine my surprise when I opened it up and it was YOU! This quilt is Very Cool. I won a free Craftsy class as a door prize -- so I'm looking around...

Hi, Alyx, thanks a lot! Craftsy has a lot to choose from - so many good ones (LOL - I should know, being a Craftsyholic!).
