What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, enjoy it DON'T panic, look at the other ladies work and read their handy hints, watch Amy as many times as you like until you feel confident but most of all have fun.

Absolutely stunning! I really can't wait to see your completed quilt - it's going to be a real knock-out! What colour do you think you'll use for the sashing? And will you add a border before binding it?

Hi Pat, I am unsure at the moment, I wanted black background with small red pattern, or so I thought but have not yet come up with something. I am not even sure that would be right for it - do you have a suggestion? I assume we will add a border, I think Amy's has one that I saw on her blog. To be honest until I see what we are supposed to do next I don't have a clue LOL!

Plain black sashing is what first occurred to me for yours, but then I thought perhaps red (if you can get the right shade) and I thought white could have quite an impact. So I'm not really much use to you - I'll just confuse you, so you'll be the best judge of what suits best. You could, of course, pick out one of the minor colours in your fabrics (green perhaps?) or would that be too much? I think I may do a "piano key" border, whatever Amy suggests, in order to finish up all my scraps. This is the third project I've made with these fabrics (bought far too much of them) and I'm getting a bit fed up with them.

I agree with Pat on the red - it would really set off your gorgeous blocks! She's right about the right shade. I must have a good dozen reds now and few of them work with the fabrics I've been using. Who'd have thunk?

Your quilt looks amazing! I too am a newbie..but have wanted to quilt since about 10 years old. I'm so proud of us!

Yes I think everyone has gone a really great job, it's a great way to learn. I am not sure I am going to put my quilt together, It is a bit too random with all the different styles of blocks, I may just keep them for reference, I am part way through a lovely Lynette Anderson one that I will definately use.

Your blocks look really good. I'm a little behind so I better jump on it.

Thank you - no need to rush, the course is open for anyone to start and finish as and when.

You've got one gorgeous quilt coming. Look forward to seeing the finished project!

Hi Jean, I have pretty much decided not to put it together, it's all a bit too random for me, I am going to put the pieces away and work on another quilt by Lynette Anderson which is for our own bed which seems a bit use of the resources and time. I note from Amy's blog that her quilt was done by a long arm quilting service - I was hoping she would show how to do it on a small machine, however I am on Ann Peterson course so I am sure that will be sufficient. Hope your projects are coming on.
