Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Functional on

What materials did you use? Batik's on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is the beginning of a quilt I'm making for my grandson. The blocks will be in a wonky setting rather than something traditional. I'm happy with how they are turning out so far. Update 9/2/12 .. Note that I'm getting the quilt top put together. Do you see the row with the block pointing to the left? I didn't notice it until I took the picture. haha .. I'm going to have to do a bit of un-sewing there! Update 9/10/12 .. I quilted this with a free motion vine and loop design after I got that 1 block that was set backwards fixed. Now I'm trying to decide on the binding. Then this birthday gift can be mailed off! on

You've got a great start on your New York Beauty. Beautiful batiks - love those colors! Can't wait to see how you do your wonky set!

I love your colors! You did a great job on your block! Please post your completed quilt when you are done. I know it will be beautiful!

What do you think of the class? I've been contemplating taking another course besides the BOM? Your block looks great!

I took the class for review because it had been about 6 years since I last made a New York beauty. It was good as a review and I'll definately watch the remaining lessons as I like some of the blocks shown.

Love the batiks. The class is great and Peggy makes it so easy to follow.

In response to your 9/2/12 comment: Sometimes it's fun to leave in a mistake like that - there are people who deliberately make a mistake (it's called a "humility" block) so that they don't tempt fate by trying to be perfect. So you are upholding quilting tradition by leaving it in! (Although it's okay to fix it, too, if that makes you happier!)
