I made the Shooting Star block from the book and found it to be a good experience. It had a paper pieced portion and I was able to follow the directions and complete the block.

Great idea.

Thanks Lucia, I've joined.

This is a good project to learn new techniques and if,when, you have a question, there is always someone with some advice or can suggest an online tutorial to help. I intend to learn how to sew inset seams! There are all levels of skill in this group and the ones who participate in the chats are definitely not critical or superior acting but are helpful and encouraging.

I have been quilting for a few years now...but I have never tried applique or any type of paper piecing. I am strictly a patchwork kinda girl thus far. Do you think this quilt would be too advanced for me? (I am waiting for approval on connecting threads as well heh)

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.
In the book, all the ladies made old, tried and true blocks, so there is nothing there that's unique. I like to buy books that teach me something new in quilting. Traditional blocks are easy to find for free.

I have the book, and have made a few of the blocks. the instructions are very clear, and all patterns come with the book.
