What materials did you use? Class materials, from the kit, plus fabrics from my polka dot stash. I used a 60-degree triangle ruler for some of the cuts.
What are you most proud of? Truly, I am MOST proud of the fact that I was able to get back sewing again... we had a house fire back in March, with a lot of smoke damage, and have had to vacate for a while... still sorting that all out, but am glad that I thought to pack out my sewing machine and BOM fabrics... Still not sure if I will be participating in the entire BOM, but I am glad to contribute a July block. I've missed this!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Laura Nownes' instructions... she is a calm and detailed teacher. Above all, be very attentive in selecting the proper fabrics. You must have an arrangement of light, medium, and dark value to get the 3-D effect. Press the seams open. Use a spritz of spray starch to help keep the bias cuts from stretching. If you want to try a hollow block, go for it! Just be prepared to have a LOT more seams to iron open! Also, you will have to be very diligent about getting everything lined up in the proper order. There is a lot of planning involved! It is a bit of a brain teaser!! :)
