    Smile Desigh Wall

    I have made 3 of these and just love the pattern.
    If you are using scrappy fabric the best thing I would recommend is to use a design wall.
    That will make it easier to get all the fabric moved around better.
    Do not just make the blocks and think that they will go together. I did that and got all the light yellow in one corner.

    I failed miserably in my one attempt to make a pickle dish quilt. I love the quilt and would definitely try paper piecing if I ever work up the nerve to try again.

    good luck! it looks pretty complicated but paper piecing should simplify matter, make sure you have lots of fabric.

    I made one.....thought it took an incredible amount of fabrics. I found the skinny arc difficult. One key I found was that it is very necessary to make sure the directional arrows (laying it out on the grain)is very important. Good luck. I quit after doing a bunch. It was stressing me too much to keep going. I'll try to post a picture....
