What are you most proud of? How much my grandparents like this quilt! A few years ago my Grandmother gave me a napkin that is exactly the same as one of the prints from this collection (Dream On was inspired by vintage bed linens) so I knew it had to go to them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It may seem like a lot of fabric to buy for this quilt but you will have quite a bit leftover in the end - actually enough to make a second quilt (if you double the other materials) using the prints that weren't used in the first one.

It's so fresh.... yet retro (per your grandmother) HST half-square triangles... nice and simple. & NO waste? what's not to love!

Really like this and love pastel fabric. I have a little problem with point lying down smoothly. Have any tips for me or a website for a training session. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jean, this is probably due to the bulk of the seams where they intersect at the point. Try ironing your seams open rather than to one side. You can also trim the seams at the point a little bit. Unfortunately that's just the nature of so many seams intersecting at one point and I don't think there's much more you can do.

Thank you Kaye. That is one problem I have and I am a little afraid to clip too close. Will get better with practice.
