Block 3

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Getting the petals to look fairly even. I didn't overlap them as Leah did in her demonstration - not by design, but by accident! However, they came out okay, I think. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch Leah at least a couple of times before starting, and make sure you have a practice on a bit of scrap sandwich first.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • polyester thread and wadding.

Q&A with patz in suffolk

desna asked:
Again this is fab love the flower effect
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you - all credit to Leah Day's tutorial!
Ann Rowley asked:
Love the dark thread!
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you - I thought it might be a good idea to let it stand out as this was a fairly easy one - I'm not as brave with some of the others and have used something that doesn't show up my mistakes as clearly!
sewno6373 asked:
Your quilt is going to look beautiful love the way you have quilted it.
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you - but all credit must go to Leah Day and her course for the quilting. I'm learning so much (but mainly by my mistakes!)
Cat Sultan asked:
Hey this looks really cool! I didn't even recognize the block at first, because the daisy just popped out at me. Well done. I would take Leah's class if I knew I had the right foot for my old Pfaff.
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you. The "flower" stands out in the photo because I took the picture with the sun shining across the block. In real life it doesn't look so obvious. I have a Pfaff too - they do an open-toe quilting foot that makes it very much easier.
