What are you most proud of? I was able to make my own patterns for a smaller square and they worked. Arranging the squares took awhile because I couldn't decide what worked best but I'm happy with the final result. I'm also really happy that the mitered corners came out so well. THANK YOU ANN!! After looking at this quilt for awhile, I realized that the outside blocks in the north and south positions needed to be switched around and I didn't care for the keyboard-type border. I took the border off, switched the blocks around, and re-did the border so it would more effectively frame the quilt. It would have been nice if I'd figured all this out in the first place, but at least it all came together before the final binding/quilting process!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? TAKE THE CLASS! It's really excellent and I learned several things besides how to sew curves! I especially liked learning how to do mitered corners, which has always been difficult for me. The super-simple method of "backstiching without backstitching" was very helpful too and I'll be using it quite a bit in future projects.

Do you ever teach "Intricate Quilt Blocks"?as in miniature resemblance ? I am searching for a teaching class on this. I saw it in New Mexican Hills in 2005 and was just so struck with it.
