    I saw a tube quilt video from Missouri quilting and basically did a small version from memory. Used 3" x 42" strips and sewed colors together I thought complemented one another. I have a box full of 3" strips, grouped by fabric pattern with a tag on each group that tells me how many strips I have. I used groups that only had 2-3 strips so that I could use them up. When the tube is all sewn together I cut in 3" strips again, then you have to rip out each succeeding seam so that you can alternate the colored squares. The video would help a lot. Layout is important. I hope this helps.

    Very pretty! Love your colors. Did you strip piece or tube piece this? (Either way is a fun and easy way to do these. Your next challenge.) :D

    good job. i think a mistake or two is what makes it handmade and not machine made. in fact i tend to deliberately leave a mistake or two .smile

    That looks great. You know that was one of my first quilt patterns I did. It is so fast and easy I still like to make them for baby gifts.You did a wonderful job and I like the colors.

    That is a precious little quilt. I have been quilting for quite a long time, and have finally learned that I am the only one that notices "all of those many little mistakes" If you can't see it from 5 feet away, it doesn't exist. Don't point it out to anyone,

    Nice job for a first. We are all too critical of our own work.
