    I think this would be an easy and can be a very pretty quilt to make. Go for it. Do you know what colors that you want to use?

    I love to make quilts that have lots of colors and different fabrics in them. I think this could be quite beautiful as a "scrappy" quilt. Just remember to try and keep your values the same as on the pattern. Such as a light and dark 4 patch and your rails would be in value order.

    Dear Sunnyhope, NY Nancy mentioned a fabric supplier that shipped overseas on a different thread (Frustrated with chain Qs in my area):

    About international shipping from http://www.favoritefabric.com ... you'll be interested to know that they also insure all their international packages, "just in case". I'm not sure that's true of all online shops!

    I hope this helps. I have also ordered from Hancocks of Paducah, they ship overseas.

    Cute pattern. Or even simpler is using the rail fence for the entire quilt. It's looks nice too I think!

    I like that pattern, whether you are a beginner or not. It looks like it would be pretty forgiving if it's not perfect. I say go for it. I'd go with monochromatic, different shades of the same color, and I think any color would work up nicely. Good luck!

    You picked an excellent beginner project. And, you have a website that makes following her directions very easy.
    If you made the straight/railfence blocks from one color way - - or even a different color way on each of those railfence angles, and then used "scrappy" for the nine patches, you would be able to use your stash and have a very nice quilt.
    I have done many quilts from Claudia's QUilt Shoppe, including buying her book because I have found her simple, straightforward directions to create a fine quilt that looks as though I had done something far more intricate.
    THe best way I know to get "experience" is to DO IT. And, this quilt will help you feel very capable and learn alot about making a quilt.
    Go for it - - and use what you have on hand.

    As it is laid out in the photo I don't care for it, but I love scrappy quilts and I think it would perk it up quite well.

    That is an excellent pattern, looks really fun to do and when done it looks more complicated than it really is.

    The pattern is really easy. The hardest part (but not that difficult) will be lining up the seams in the 16-Patch blocks. The Rail Fence blocks will be super easy. Just be precise with the rotary cutting and the seam allowances and it'll come together nicely for you.

    Very good choice. But you know the "rule" here, you are now obligated to post a picture of it when you decide the colors and all. :D
