Project Description

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 so much, Pamillia! I was thinking of using gray fabrics but couldn't find 11 of them I liked at my local quilt shop.
