What materials did you use? Kona cotton and many different fabrics from my stash

What are you most proud of? Some of the points are a tiny bit off, but most of time they line up nicely. I may go back and adjust the second block. Now that I've made myself a better template for cutting, the pieces should be more perfect, so lining them up won't be such a hassle.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be prepared to take your time! Cutting the pieces is a job in and of itself. Don't plan on this being a weekend project, as the points need to be lined up perfectly and then backstitched. There's no chain stitching here!

Both blocks that I have seen are exquisite. I really like the effect that they appear "lacey'. Make a goal to get a block done every week and pretty soon you will have the makings for a whole quilt. Try adding some sashing to bring in more dimension. Keep up the good work. You have talent and a good eye for color!

Thank you! I should make a goal of doing one a week. That would really help with the number of them that I need to make. I don't know that I'll add sashing between or around the blocks. They look pretty amazing when they're right next to each other!

Hi. I'd love to start a project with this block! It's stunning! Which of your classes shoes the pattern for cutting and sewing the block? Regards Jacinda

I'm sorry, Jacinda, I don't have a class that demonstrates making this block. If you'd like instructions for it, look for the book Making Antique Quilts, by Rita Weiss.
