Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an extremely easy block, only caution I would give is, the first and second cut are on the diagonal which means there is give in the fabric, you must be careful not to stretch your piece as you sew. The instructor did not use pins, I think pins for a beginner might help avoid the stretching. Quick and fun otherwise.

What you will need

  • Kaffe Fassett Millefiori and Parasoles

Sewingal asked:
Wow, that is very striking. I'm anxious to see your other blocks!!!
Applekrisp answered:
Thanks you sewingal! I'm having fun with this. I am teaching a class for beginner quilters starting this Friday and I thought it might be a good idea to take a beginning quilting class to make sure I'm not leaving anything out. I love the freedom that these blocks provide.
