    Well I have been plodding along first of all sewing by hand 9 blocks and today I tried it on the machine and did 3 more blocks. The whole quilt is PP and wasnt easy to get the hang of´hence doing by hand first.

    I am liking the layout so far, but have 18 more blocks to do and then the border is totally PP as well, great project for the winter though.

    Beautiful Elle! Have you decided which you like better - hand or machine for these? I love paper-piecing for it's nice, sharp points!

    Nice pointy points, Elle, and I love your choice of fabrics. Don't use up all your blue ones, as you will need some for my IRR quilt!

    I am sure you could do this. It took me a little while to grasp what was needed as it looks quite complex till you get into it. Thats why I did the first lot by hand.

    that Blue is actually a lovely deep lavender, but shows more blue on the screen. Oh I have loads of blues just waiting on your gorgeous one.
    Can´t wait.

    I've seen that pattern many times, and each time it has intimidated me. :shock: Yours, of course, looks perfect.

    Yep she is an English lady, living in France with an American accent, with a hint of Dutch. But I hasten to add lovely with it. :D

    Ducky, I think you should give it a try, if you have PP before then when once you put all the patterns in separate little bags You will be surprised how it all clicks into place. Did you have a look at her site, she has some gorgeous ones on there and also have a look at the people who have made her patterns up, Its on Quiltworx.com
