    Very pretty quilt, and I think you're so clever to use those pants hangers to display the quilt for pictures. Mine usually have someones hands or feet or top the of a head showing. I too am working on a project for my DDIL's birthday on the 25th. I have only the borders left to quilt, then bind it, label it and get it in the mail!

    Is the extra fabric for the end cuts and then the border? How much to finish the end of the rows?

    Tutt, your quilt is absolutely gorgeous! Did you use a specific fabric collection, or did you select fabrics from different lines that worked perfectly together? If you used a collection, would you mind telling us which one? These colors are perfect for a gift quilt I want to make.

    Grandma Cindy, if you use a layer cake you don't get enough dresden shapes needed, so the extra is used for getting the additional shapes. I used a 1/2 yard to cut my bias binding in the dark brown.

    RitaVil, I used Moda's Pure collection.

    do you recall how much extra for the shapes and did you add only one color?

    I found instructions online at allpeoplequilt.com just search for Hello Yellow! On the second page where the blue option is shown there is a download for the project.

    Grandma Cindy, I ALWAYS buy way more fabric that I need so I bought 4 or 5 extra half yards of different fabrics, but I'm going to make another quilt with the same fabrics. Hopefully the instructions on the website above will help you.
