What advice would you give someone starting this project? Rewatch Peggy's tips as she makes the NY Beauty block on the video. It's helpful to watch it several times and work with her as she goes through the process.

Great pillow! I really love that striped fabric and how you quilted that big swirl in the center - nice work!

Thanks, Peggy. I wasn't sure what would happen with striped fabric and the wedges, and did this as a practice block in anticipation of another possible project. The stripes were interesting, though, and taught me something. Your course in VERY helpful and I'll be going back to different lessons in the future, I know. Thanks so much.
