My second quilt and the only one I made (so far) for myself. Its a great pattern that layers the blocks on top of each other and you sew on the top. Gives it a 3-d look especially after the layered edges fray a little. I've had it on my bed for almost 6 years and it still looks great. I used stripes, plaids, florals, solids, anything and everything I had on hand. And it was sooo easy.
