What are you most proud of? Except for method 2 which I need to work on increasing my fudge factors, I think these patches are some I wouldn't mind having my name on.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Allie's directions are clear and work as advertized. I listened to the lesson first. The written directions reinforced the process and reminded me of the details of the steps. 1 2 3 and it worked!!!

I love your block, and your feedback too. The colors and fabric designs are so rich! Also, a controlled palette like this one can yield a very strong block. As for that curved flip and sew...bigger seam allowances when you cut out the pieces help a lot. Great work!

I know, I know! you told us, but my judgement was off. More learning to do :) but If I just stick to the Freezer Paper I can avoid it and still get my curves :) :) :) Now, what to do about stitching on that wild intense patch smack in the center of the first two blocks??? Will anything show on it?
