Thank you for all your nice comments:)

Yes all the sheets are from the thrift store/op shop.  I have so many more now, I think I have an addiction. If I see one in an op shop I have to buy it otherwise I'm thinking about it for days afterwards and end up going back for it anyway.Smiley

If I may ask, are you using the "quilt as you go method" of constructing this quilt.   I am having a hard time finding someone that does it.  It looks like around each block there is a row of stitching that indicates QAYG.    Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous by the way!!!    Such talent Smiley

Thank you so much for reading this question and hope that you respond. Have a great evening.

I only just saw this question sorry!, I had to look up what 'quilt as you go' was as I have only made two quilts and just figured it out as I went along.

From what I can tell, no I didn't quilt as I went along sorry. I did the whole of the top of the quilt, then I attached batting and the bottom and quilted through them, you know the more usual way.

Seems to be a few good tutorials on Quilting as you go though:)
