April BOM #2

What are you most proud of? I wanted to do something of my own on this block but I'm afraid I wasn't very original. The ground part of the picture is a carpet of violets (!) and I rather enjoyed making the two flowers and making the stems from fabric cut on the cross so that it bends. The leaves are another hexagon, cut in half. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Let your imagination run wild - there are lots and lots of really clever ideas posted by other participants in the course.

Q&A with patz in suffolk

Surfside6 asked:
I love all your blocks. What a wonderful job. I think the hexi garden is my favorite!!!! What a gorgeous quilt you will have when done. Thanks for sharing with us...colors are just perfect
patz in suffolk answered:
It's funny, but I started rather half-heartedly and the project has gained momentum as I've gone on - although I completed the first 10 blocks in only a week. My attention span isn't great, so I hope I shall get to the end okay!
