My favourite part was the minimal measuring. You just stitch together pieces of different widths of fabrics into strips slightly longer than the length you want each block to be.
Then press and square them off along each long end.
I tried my hand at free-motion quilting using a large meandering pattern all over the quilt and it turned out ok. If you look closely you can see some mistakes, but none too noticeable and once I've washed it a few times I'm sure they will be even less so. I didn't have the quilting gloves lots of bloggers say are useful in directing the fabric while quilting, but a pair of disposable surgical gloves with roughed finger pads did the trick for me.
Here's a close up of the quilting.
This quilting business is a little more addictive than I ever thought it would be....
