What materials did you use? Cotton fabric, invisible thread

What are you most proud of? Thought its hard to see in my amature photo the strips in the mauve fabric actually spiral out from the center hexi. This lends to the overall affect of spinning I was going for. Also, I found another way to use one of the cats in my original fat quarters!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check out the Class Projects pictures. There's a lot of inspiration this month!

You don't have to go buy more thread and go back over it, use a sharpie and color the thread the color of the fabric. : D Works like a charm!

Hi Melissa - Thanks for the tip. As it so happens I just finished redoing it yesterday. Sharpies would have been a lot easier. I also redid the sun on my soccer ball block. Will post new pictures later today. Thanks again!

I have the start of a quilt that my grandmother and great grand-mother started. I was told the pattern was "Grandmothers Garden" I's about 4x4 hand pieced section. I don't know how or what to do with it! Any sugestions? the pieces are hexagon.

Grandmother's Garden uses a similar but smaller flower. They're made of 1-hexi in the middle surrounded by 6 hexis - 1 on each edge. Then more fabric is added so each flower is on a white background. They are hand sewn which makes for a good take along project. Google Grandmothes Garden. Or try YouTube. Hopes this helps :D
