What are you most proud of? That the block looks more like the design which I really like.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always check that when flipped the piece will cover what it needs to - if it does not, consider cutting a new, larger piece or adjust where the seam falls accordingly.

Beautiful! I love the materials. I am still on practice material. One of these days I will feel brave enough to use the class material!

Thank you Lynda. I just love this material!! I think the hardest part for me is fabric selection so this makes it so easy. It's hard to go wrong with the selection and I'm sure I'll be able to make at least four pillows out of it, probably more!

Great tip! Thanks so much for sharing your experience with all of us. And your block looks fabulous.

Thanks you Allie - and thanks one more time for a terrific class. You are a natural teacher and inspire confidence! I know I'll use these techniques and refer back to your course as I continue in the quilting arts!

This is lovely. Could you tell me where I might find the "Paris Flea Market" collection? Looking for yardage and jelly rolls. Thank you

Thank you. Gosh I wish I could find it as I would buy more! I did a Google search and found someone selling a set of 40 fat eights for $148.00, which of course, is a lot!! I could not find another "set" of the fabrics. I did see that folks are selling some pieces by the yard, if you wanted to try that. Just Google the collections name. I think I will also ask the course instructor if this pattern may be reprinted. Good luck!

Hi, After I responded to you below, I was looking at the fabric currently on sale at Craftsy. They have a fabric collection on sale called "3 Sisters Favorite Cuts" which looks VERY much like the Paris Flea Market collection in terms of style and color! So glad you asked this question as I plan to buy some of this!! I think it will look very similar!
