    Martha your quilt is a work of art! From design to fabric choice, construction and quilting technique your close attention to detail is so very evident! Time so well spent and an accomplishment you should be very proud of! Certainly, this will become a family heirloom to be enjoyed by many generations! Wonderful job!

    Seabee took the words right out of my mouth. Your quilt is one beautiful piece of art! Love everything about it. I'm sure you feel that the time investment was well worth it. TFS.

    First of all, your quilt is FABULOUS!!!!!

    I have also used the Golden Threads and while it is easy to rip off, in tight spaces, little bits and pieces remain behind. That is when you pullout the tweezers! It is a great product though.

    I have never used Golden Threads but would be interested to know how it compares to standard kitchen parchment paper? I found parchment paper easy to use and cut in whatever lengths I need, marking and sewing through it is no problem but I use caution when tearing away from stitches and still need tweezers for the small remnant pieces. I may have to try Golden Threads to see if it makes the process a lot easier!

    It's GORGEOUS!

    I searched for the pattern by name, but of course "beginners luck" is used a lot when just referring to the quilting process and I didn't find anything that looked like this.

    Do you have a link to the pattern you can share?

    Thanks.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. My "fabric choices" was a collection of 1930s fabrics that I've been collecting over the past few years (FQs and half yard cuts). What's great about these fabrics is that they all go together well!

    The pattern itself came from a Nancy Mahoney book called Treasures From the 30s. The quilt is actually on the cover. It's a lap quilt in the book but I enlarged it to be a twin. Oh, and I did a different border than the book.
    When life throws you scraps, make a quilt!
