They look great Katy! Mine is too big too, please trim  As I said to Kim, I realised at 7am on the Friday and was not going to start playing with rotary cutters at that point!

Finally, uploaded the pic - it didn't like the original title I think, because when I changed it, all was well! Mental note, no commas in picture titles!

I've just uploaded pics of my progress and of my own block

Your block is done and will be in the post on Monday, I do hope you like it
I have dug my blocks out again and an quilting the third section (quilting as I go, half the quilt is together now, this will make 3/4 and then I need to make my block to finish off!)
I am thinking it might go on the wall behind our bed - just need to get DH to put some hooks up.....

How much fun is that! Well worth talking to people with pretty things
05/06/2010 20:40:34

Thread: How much fabric do I need?
05/06/2010 20:28:00
Although as you gain experience you will understand that the answer to that question is either 'as much as I can afford' or 'damn, not quite enough, better buy some more'!
Thread: to quilt course or not to quilt course....that IS the question!!

I think it depends on whether you need two things:
a) The discipline of having to get something done for a certain date (I know I do at times!)
b) The certificate - DIY is good as long as you can justify to yourself that you have learned it (if that makes sense?)
I think you could learn just as much from books if you were systematic and decided to keep a journal of what you were learning, make samples, modify them, try new things would be a lot cheaper too!
However, if you want a recognised qualification, then C&G is the way to go.

Yours in is the post Jytte and I have ideas for yours Jackie
Kerstin - think how excited everyone will be to make your blocks -
02/06/2010 22:37:59
Hey, just realised we are in June - we must have another recipient!
If there are only 2 people left, could we have both their requirements so we can get the blocks out and the swap completed? (Yes, I know I am already behind, but hey, as well behind for 3 as for 1!!!)
02/06/2010 22:35:37
Jytte, I am terribly behind, but I know what I am doing for you block and it will be made tomorrow - and maybe even posted!!!
Thread: transferring design on to black fabric

A chalk marker would work, or maybe pencil....
