    Check out Quilt With Us at Connecting Threads. There is a group Darlene's Slackers that is working on this quilt. It started June 15, 2009 but since we are "slackers"- quilters are joining at any time and quickly passing up those of us who are REALLLLy slackers. It is a fun group and very helpful. The blocks are a mixture of easy, average and difficult and all different methods-piecing, foundation piecing, English paper piecing, and applique. Come check us out.

    i just looked quickly at all the blocks and it seems as though the blocks are all available ones in the public domain. if you go to the website given by ghostrider, you'll have the layout and the blocks all ready to be set up for you.

    unless i'm wrong, i don't think you really need the book. with a little research you could probably find the block patterns yourself. many of them are on quilter's cache. if you're not familiar with that site it's:

    http://www.quilterscache.com

    have fun :wink:

    edited to say: in answer to the real question: some of the blocks are quite easy. others are for advanced quilters. don't let that stop you. if you go at it, you'll become an advanced quilter.

    Hi Lucia

    Thank you so much.

    Checked it out, and it's just great! I am going to look through all those lovely blocks and get lots of ideas.

    I don't expect I shall start it properly until next summer, but I can start buying some fabrics to put by can't I?!!

    I don't have this book, but have Jennifer Chiaverini's other pattern books and they are very complete, so can't imagine that this one is any different. If you want to make a certain thing, and need the pattern, then the investment is worthwhile. It seems to me that it would be a good source of block patterns, too, even if you didn't make the whole quilt.
    It was the slide show of all those beautiful quilts that made me wonder if I could try this. The colours and variety are truly lovely.

    As you say, the investment is well worth it, but I wanted to check with folk who are a lot more experienced than me, if it was a viable project that wouldn't prove too frustrating.

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for your encouragement. An advanced quilter? That would be good!!

    I have had this book out only recently from the library, if your into quilt books it's a beautiful book to have for your own library. :-)

    i have most of the series. i dont know how difficult the instructions will be to make the quilt. but i love the books. there are bet. 17 - 22 books in the series. 22 if you count the cook book, & some of the others that are not connected to the book series themselves.
