I actually managed a decent looking quilt out of this! Some of the block patterns stand out more than others, and placement was an issue, as were the sashing and border fabrics. I also used a wool batt for the first time with this quilt. It was an interesting experiment and I don't think I'll do another one soon. I found the extra loft a bit difficult to work with. However, it does make for a lovely warm quilt. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to think of the entire quilt top before starting to sew. I just started with sewing the blocks from the fabric I purchased, and had to count on quilt store owners to help me select fabrics for the sashing and border after the fact. Much better to have planned the entire project out ahead of time.
