What materials did you use? I made my own template out of template plastic... worked better than I expected but a bit nerve wracking minding the fingers! If I decide to make more curved blocks then I will definitely invest in a proper set... if only for safety sake!

What are you most proud of? I'm less scared of curved piecing!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take it slow, that goes for BOTH cutting and sewing... it's not actually as hard as I expected!

I agree with Darns, the stripe fabric looks amazing in this block! It looks like a bird flying. Really pretty, Pam!

What I like most is the accurate points and the watercoloury harlequin fabric. This makes me want to go on making the BOMs. I stopped at April and I see there's lots lo do and learn! Thanks for sharing It's really inspiring.

Oh no you HAVE to keep going! There's a couple of blocks that I'm not quite so keen on but I made the decision to try each and every one of them... and I'm glad I did as I have learnt something new from every block, not to mention learning from others. This has been an amazing journey for someone like me who had never quilted before... never even had the desire to so not quite sure what happened LOL. I was thrilled and surprised at how this block came together so neatly... heart in mouth a lot of the time! The batik was a late addition when I started running out of fabric... only a scrap piece unfortunately or I would have bought a bolt of it, just love it too!
