What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow the instructions given in the video, cut carefully, mark your 1/4" seams and you can't go wrong.

Nice job with those! Boy I tried to watch that video. I got impatient after 3 minutes. It is looooong!

LOL! Yeah, I know, Sharon's videos are very long but she really is a master quilter, she has spent FOUR YEARS on ONE quilt! I don't know if I have that kind of patience. ;D

I bet you have the patience. But that might get old after 4 years! Hey check out my new project I just posted. I call it Squashed Hexis. I'll email you my instructions if you want them. I know how you like those Y-seams!

Very nice. Isn't it great when those points are doing what they are supposed to be doing. Keep them coming!

That's impressive!! All the points match and its flat! I'm positively green with jealousy.

One word: STARCH! Starch prevents your fabric from stretching and it washing out in the laundry. When pressing my seams, I use a little water and a paint brush to dampen my seams and always use a DRY iron. Hope this helps Sue!
