    I started this yesterday. I got the kit from www.whims.cc online. It's a watercolor quilt called "Butterflies are Free." I thought it was going to be really hard, but it wasn't. I have never sewn before with a machine (not for the last 35 years, anyway, since 8th grade home ec). I broke the needle once and had to rip out the three seams, but I finished it and I'm very happy with it. Made mistakes, learned some things. Can't wait to make another one.

    Great job, sewing just like riding a bike once you learn you never forget but you might be a little shaky on the start

    Beautiful! Did you you use fusible grid? I have a heart wreath watercolor pattern and it suggests that.

    Yes, I did, and it wasn't hard at all. One of the things I learned though is to take the seam into consideration when laying out the pieces. There's 1/4 " on each piece that is sewn into the seam, so some of the blends I had perfectly done kind of disappeared or became choppy once I sewed it.
