This is my largest "machine" quilted project to date.  I did a yarn-tied "Trip Around the World" over 25 years ago in high school... I've also done table runners, holiday stockings and a wall hanging (which was also yarn tied.)  I learned a lot on this project... like maybe I should take some actual quilting lessons!  This was done with the "10 minute block" from YouTube and I used the "Batting Buddy" for backing and connecting the blocks, so it was quilt as you go.  I did the quilting on each block as I sewed down the rolled "cathedral" edges on the diamonds.  I used 4" blocks for all of the colored blocks and the diamonds.   I have a lot of the 30's reproduction fabric left (which I have decided is extremely pretty!) and I know I have a lot to learn yet, but I am pretty pleased with how this came out and I am anxious to start a new project with my "scraps"!  Sorry for the picture quality - will try to get some better pictures in the daylight.  I finished this last night.  This is approximately 45 x 45 inches.

Claudette, this is so pretty.  I love that pattern, too.  That 30's fabric makes it easy to feel happy, too.  Really charming!

Claudette,

You did a wonderful job with the 10 minute blocks and quilt as you go. Love your fabrics, and how you blocks take on the cathedral appearance. Beautiful!
