What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would say that this is a good BOM if you want to learn some advanced techniques, like sewing curves and Y seams. At the end of each of these blocks you should be proficient at both...LOL. Definitely do as she says and use a SCANT 1/4 inch. It will make a difference in the final trim up.

For those that are interested, one of the things I did with the pattern pieces (as they are paper bits) I ran the whole thing through my laminator and then cut them out, I have nice stiff plastic coated templates to draw around now. Just tuck them in an envelope and inside a plastic binder sleeve along with the instructions for future use!

Oh WOW!!! And just when I've committed (re-committed) to no more new projects until I finish the ones I already have :D - Will definitely bookmark this and save it for the future. Your blocks are gorgeous, as always!

Hi Applekrisp - I have had my eye on Charise' BOM for a while. Love her ideas and fabric. Your fabric choices gave a whole new perception, of course. Looks wonderful. I just bought a used Brother (picking up today) at the sewing machine store. $900 new, $399 used. Looks like new. Quiet and powerful. The original owner upgraded. Has all the accessories, even a table extension AND the InstructionBook, too. Cannot wait. Has a few goodies like thread cut, needle up, knee lift........loved my other machines, but time for a new toy with fun tricks on them. Sew exciting.
