Swoon My Blocks

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am newbie so proud I gave this block a try. First time cutting my own fabric (always used precuts) first time reading a pattern, first half square triangles HST and flying geese. Yes and that I am bang on with all match points :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hum. Watch the class, watch again ...take notes. Read over the instructions, make notes....and use a really good starch on all your fabrics. Be careful when you cutting I had some troubles and needed to do creative piecing.

Q&A with Scheri Manson

Cheryl Lemmons asked:
Seems that you've been bitten by the quilting bug. I'm loving seeing your work. So precise! I've done a little quilting in the past, but not recently. Plan to give it another go one of these days. Right now the garment sewing queue is rather lengthy . . . all 3 of my kids have requests, plus the things I hope to make for myself. Did you ever finish the winter coat project?
Scheri Manson answered:
No I did not Cheryl. After the posts on peoples results with pattern thought I would put on shelf.

Beautiful but looks complicated. Good job!
Scheri Manson answered:
It's not complicated. The challenge for me as a newbie is the cutting. But Camille has a great layout to follow.
