The final block and all my blocks

What are you most proud of? That I managed to tackle every single block, even though as a newbie I struggled with some of them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, enjoy it DON'T panic, look at the other ladies work and read their handy hints, watch Amy as many times as you like until you feel confident but most of all have fun.

Q&A with saxostamper

patz in suffolk asked:
Absolutely stunning! I really can't wait to see your completed quilt - it's going to be a real knock-out! What colour do you think you'll use for the sashing? And will you add a border before binding it?
saxostamper answered:
Hi Pat, I am unsure at the moment, I wanted black background with small red pattern, or so I thought but have not yet come up with something. I am not even sure that would be right for it - do you have a suggestion? I assume we will add a border, I think Amy's has one that I saw on her blog. To be honest until I see what we are supposed to do next I don't have a clue LOL!
smittenkitten asked:
Your quilt looks amazing! I too am a newbie..but have wanted to quilt since about 10 years old. I'm so proud of us!
saxostamper answered:
Yes I think everyone has gone a really great job, it's a great way to learn. I am not sure I am going to put my quilt together, It is a bit too random with all the different styles of blocks, I may just keep them for reference, I am part way through a lovely Lynette Anderson one that I will definately use.
Sew4joy asked:
Your blocks look really good. I'm a little behind so I better jump on it.
saxostamper answered:
Thank you - no need to rush, the course is open for anyone to start and finish as and when.
NanaJeanFL asked:
You've got one gorgeous quilt coming. Look forward to seeing the finished project!
saxostamper answered:
Hi Jean, I have pretty much decided not to put it together, it's all a bit too random for me, I am going to put the pieces away and work on another quilt by Lynette Anderson which is for our own bed which seems a bit use of the resources and time. I note from Amy's blog that her quilt was done by a long arm quilting service - I was hoping she would show how to do it on a small machine, however I am on Ann Peterson course so I am sure that will be sufficient. Hope your projects are coming on.
