What are you most proud of? Making this quilt top without power (well except for the lights and the iron, I guess) on my 130 year old treadle machine, Winnie.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you piece all the blocks in a chain without breaking the thread, it goes fast and you don't need the "nubble". I pressed seams towards the outside "sisters" to avoid bulk.

It is wonderful! Looks kind of "Peek a boo" in a way I really like.

I just didn't dig the peek-a-boo thing...I wanted to see more color with all that b/w. So I broke your rule and added some purposeful symmetric grid. Now it looks like a maze to me. Can you get here from there? The 3 crazy sisters got sidetracked! Now to think about how I will do the quilting! Great class...must try other 3 blocks.

I like this. It reminds me of a math problem with street grids and get it. Love the combinations of prints and the movement works for me.

I get it! You got it! Thanks!

Yes! This layout is so much more powerful - I love this whole idea - terrific! And I own a piece of the floral you've used - fun!!

That looks like a floral from the "Modern Monet" line, and I love how you used it. Really pretty!
