What are you most proud of? The big pops of color are cool, and I am really getting the hang of this Free Motion Quilting business. That is a lot coming from me, because I was terrified of FMQ, yet I find I like it more and more the more I use it to finish off my projects. Not yet perfect in any way, but sooo much better than when I first tried to FMQ

What advice would you give someone starting this project? My blocks are big, so bright colors against a solid background are going to work best, I think. Only other advice, as always and always, is just have fun and enjoy what you do. This actually came together fairly quickly for me since I managed to cut bigger pieces of fabric, so I used less blocks.

Golly! This is my kind of quilt. I love the overlapping in the color blocks, really moves the eye along. Great color play and fabuloso back! Your quilting is ooh-la-la!

I love this, are the squares appliqu and is this shown after washing, it looks so soft like you have washed it.

Thanks, Maggie. The squares are not applique'd, they are pieced, and yes the quilt has been washed in this picture, and yes it is soft! LOL This ended up being a gift for one of my friend's son who is a high school senior, and all around great kid. He went bonkers over the quilt. LOL
