What materials did you use? Various cottons from my stash

Very nice Lesley, I'm beginning to wish I'd gone with the quilt as you go method but I'm not unpicking it all now, it's all a learning curve, hope my attempts at quilting are as nice as your example, lovely.

Thanks for your kind words. I have actually done another block, but that was before I bought Leahs class and I did it with the walking foot. I also didn't add the 2 1/2 inch strip around the outside so I have it to unpick I think. I don't have enough room to sew the quilt top together first and I think it may be much more difficult to negotiate without the supreme slider and quilting gloves, neither of which I possess

WOW! very nicely done. Thank you for sharing. :-)

Very nice, Lesley. I'm doing the quilt as you go too, and don't know how I'd have managed this kind of intricate FMQing with a whole quilt. I think I'll shelve doing things like that for when I've had a bit more experience! I can't recommend quilting gloves too much - they make a tremendous difference. Look forward to seeing more of your FMQ'd blocks soon! Patricia

Thanks Patricia. I went to the knitting and stitching show last week with a list of things I needed but ran out of money before I got to the gloves stall! oops. My stash is somewhat increased though. I will order some today. Lesley

I've rather copied your design for my asterisk block (hope you don't mind). I went to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally last month and spent far too much money (well - exercised the plastic a bit, which I suppose is the same thing!)!

Looking good! :)

Lesley, I like the design you did in the triangles better. I think I'll do it that way too. Great job, and thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks, Just thought that too much stitching would cover up the patterns on the fabrics. Leah is quilting on plain colours
