July BOM Tumbling blocks

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Fabrics worked OK for this block! And, yes, I have already done the flying geese (feel like an expert after the Civil War block quilt) and have started some assembly. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use sizing or starch on fabric before cutting triangles & diamonds.

Q&A with Darns

Tana Doss asked:
Very pretty. I'm ready for assembly too, but I have to wait for all the lessons :)
Darns answered:
Thank you!
NanaJeanFL asked:
This one is just perfect Darns!! You are going to have a spectacular quilt! Can't wait to see the whole thing. Have you decided on that flower basket space yet?
Darns answered:
Thanks, Jean! I think I'm going to play with the circular sewing attachment I bought a couple of months ago. Maybe various sized circles - some overlapping. It will give me the impetus to use more of the decorative stitches on my machine to cover the edges of the circles.
Di4N4 asked:
Ooooh your yummy colors!! You always come up with the most wonderful fabric choices! Love this!
Darns answered:
Thanks a lot, Di4N4! Glad to see you're having the chance to wander around Craftsy again!
artbythebay asked:
Looking gorgeous as always, girl! You seem to be able to make so many projects happen-- I really respect that-- it's very inspiring to me as I tend to pick up and drop projects and have a closetful of UFOs.
Darns answered:
Thanks a lot! I think I need to quit watching Craftsy classes & do something about the quilt tops that are not quilted, all my PIGS (projects in grocery sacks), the complete mess in my sewing room BUT I have this cool fabric for this Quilt Along I'm doing so I think I'll go cut & sew! Absolutely hopeless!! I have vowed to not buy any more fabric without finishing something - we'll see - - -
Carolyn Sew asked:
Love all the textures coming together--another pretty square.
Darns answered:
Thanks, Carolyn! I'm glad to have this block done so I can get to some of the other stuff that's waiting - my friend wants some embroidered kitties for one of her quilts & I have some great Laurel Burch designs - maybe I should do a little embroidery for a change!?!
