What materials did you use? Cotton fabric and thread for piecing; polyester wadding and thread for quilting.

What are you most proud of? I rather liked doing the escargots. Leah had suggested escargot in the middle of an earlier block, but as I had a fairy in it, I didn't have a got at escargots. I've certainly done a few now!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're going to do the escargots on this block, don't make them too small - I did and it's flattened the block out rather a lot.

I have just started this class myself and love what you are doing with quilting the BOM blocks. Well done!

Thank you - but all credit must go to Amy Gibson's Block of the Month course and also Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting a Sampler course - without them I hadn't a clue!
