    Well, here is the first block cut (for a friend's baby quilt). Haven't sewn it yet. I love this Ellie Burns pattern! But boy oh boy, you have to handle everything with kit gloves because it stretches if you look at it wrong! Gee, I can't wait to see how this looks when I'm done! Will post a finished photo.
    I have got to think of a quilt pattern to go with this too!

    You're doing great! I might suggest using either lots of starch, spray sizing or the new product Best Press. It will help to stabilize your fabrics while sewing.

    I've been using faultless starch. I need to get some best press. I've heard great things about it! Thanks!!

    try spraying your pieces with Mary Ellen Best Press starch.it work wonders for those bias cuts.

    I love this quilt pattern. I saw it demonstrated at the Paducah quilt show. Eleanor is blast. Your color choice is very pretty. Please show the completed quilt.
