Im really proud of how this turned out, especially since it was my first quilt that was more complicated than just a bunch of 12? x 12? squares.  I started with a brick pattern from a quilting book, but then I improvised after that.  I really took my time to try to make it look nice  Smiley

Taking your time on this quilt certainly paid off - it's gorgeous.  What type of wadding/batting did you use for it (weight wise)?

I'm very impressed - you must have the patience of a saint.

Well done you  Grin.

It was some low loft batting from Wal Mart.

Very nice. I'm working on a quilt like this now, but I'm at a standstill because I need 9 yards of fabric for the back (1 yard for squares on the front) and I can't afford it! Neway!! Very nice!

I just bought a queen sized sheet at Target to use for the back.  I think it was about $10.
