    Hi! I am mostly a lurker here.......stumbled across this thread, and I did a happy dance! I have had this book in my collection for YEARS! And now I have the time and desire to tackle this quilt. I have done some needleturn applique in the past, but never on this scale, so wish me luck!

    I can't seem to find a good method of transferring the pattern to dark background fabrics. Anyone wish to share their favorite method? I plan on doing mostly needle-turn, and for the pointy pieces will use freezer paper on top of the piece for a guide. I have a lightbox-will that work with black background fabric?

    Thank you all for posting your pix-soooo much gogeous inspiration!

    Hi jillmc! A light box should work. I have been using the window well enough, a light box should be better!

    Thank you to all, I am half way through my blocks and the tips are still available on each block.

    Welcome Jillmc. I'm still sitting on 5 blocks completed and trying to get back into it. Having a few time issues going on.

    I am doing the 7" blocks and using templates so I don't need to trace my pattern on. I can tack my pieces in place using the pattern on the lightbox with my fabric over it to get the placement.

    Hope you enjoy finally getting started on this project.

    Just happened on this thread and had to hit the "last" button. 414 pages already. You all will be done with your quilt by the time I read through the thread. I have the book for AOTH but am working on 3 quilts right now. Okay if I tag along and have this all at hand when time comes to actually do AOTH? You all are awesome. I never miss checking the Board first thing in the morning before going to work. Can't wait til I retire so I can read and look at everything.

    I finished block 33 yesterday and now I have 3 more blocks to finish. My camera still isn't talking to my computer but I hope to get it repaired this week and then I can start posting pictures again. The blocks seem easier as I near the end or else I have finally gotten the hang of needle turn applique.
