My first quilt block ever

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My mom said I took on the Sistine chapel when she saw what I had done, I did not even sew prior to this class. I just did not want to look like a child compared to my sisters whom I knew were very skilled sewers. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Know that velum will burn and scortch the fabric - Don't use orange thread under white fabric just because you like orange, it shows through. Getting the paper off is very difficult, I felt printer paper, velum and Carol Doaks special paper was all same in difficulty to get off. Answer, I don't know.

What you will need

  • cotton borrowed fabric for the 12 inch pine cone. Got brave and purchased material and borrowed all cotton fabric.

Q&A with SunVegan

Denise S asked:
Awesome. You did a great job. These are very advanced patterns. They really go well together.
SunVegan answered:
Well, the thing about being a beginner is I had no idea they were advanced. I think that worked out to my advantage. I'm thankful for what I learned with this class which made it possible. :)
