    This is one of the BOM's from Rachel's Garden Quilt. I bought them all last year and decided it's time to work on them. I finally figured out the steam-a-seam 2 with help from the board members and a friend.

    It's pretty expensive for the 12 blocks. I'm already started on the poinsettia. Can't wait until all 12 are done. Now that I know how to use the steam a seam I need a lot more of it. My friend has a box of it but can't find it right now. LOL

    It's a quilt will be 54 X 76.5. Each block is 13.5 x 15' without a border. I'm putting a border on each one when I get more done. You can just add wider sashing and side borders to make a double, , king or queen. If you only want to do 3 it would make a nice table runner.

    Thanks, glad you like it.

    I was hoping to finish the pointsettia tonight but my iron just bit the dust. I don't think my mini iron will work too great on this many pieces. The pieces are all ready to go on but I have to finish sewing in the blocks. I just got one row messed up sewed to the last row so have to tear it back out. I know the way things go sometimes.

    It really isn't that bad. The 2 " blocks are all laser cut and come with the kit. I have the fusible with it and the grid on where to put the different color values. Ten sew the rows all one way then iron to one side and sew the other rows then you can start putting together all the pieces of the flowers. There are papers to show you how and where to oplace them all. The cutting out of the pieces is the worst. I have little pieces all pinned to my ironing board. Kind of looks funny. Just hope that iron will work tonight or I'll have to stop.

    Wow, that is so beautiful! Even after you tried to say it was nothing! You just followed directons! I know how hard it is to follow directions, and even with all the pieces precut, it was a lot of work! Just say Thank you! you did a spectacular job! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Oh I like this very much! I finished a wallhanging today with the gridded lines on it. A pumpkin, but it was not a kit. If was fun but boy did that ever make a black mark mess on my machine. Did yours do that?
