Just Foolin Around

What are you most proud of? I'm really happy with the vibrant colors. As with alot of my work, this is very scrappy. I tend to get bored easily without the stimulation of working with a large number of fabrics, so scrap quilts keep me awake and interested long enough to finish the top. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did this quilt with foundation piecing, and that allowed nice matching from block to block. A secret of mine is, I don't use fabric or paper for the foundation. Instead I use coffee filters. I iron them flat, and trace the block onto each one. I press the seams open, and once you quilt and wash your project, the filters pretty much disappear as far as bulk is concerned.
