    I wanted to make a quilt for our bed. Raided my fat quarters and used 30 to make this. It is 102x102. I FMQ on my Janome 6600. I just wanted to see if it was possible. Not the greatest, but it is ok. I could barely lift it, let alone quilt it. Can you tell my favorite color is green?

    It's beautiful...love your color selection.

    I can't even imagine doing that on your Janome. Are your biceps a lot bigger now?

    I love green too, and I think you have done a fantastic job.

    Can I ask- did you use all of the 30 FQs? I mean, is there approximately the same amount in there of each fabric you included, or did you use the full FQ of some, and less of others?

    I'd love to try one of thse but I struggle with colour balance sometimes and am afraid it will too much of one thing or too much of another... yours looks very harmonious!

    I just picked 30. There were different pinks, different greens, florals, tone on tone. I layed them out to make sure nothing clashed and started cutting.
    I used every bit of everyone. I started laying out the blocks and was going crazy. Picked them up layed them in a pile and started sewing. If two alikes were together, I sewed anyway. I have never done that before. I really like the way it turned out. It was a fast and easy project.
