    It's looking fantastic!! I remember when you first started and I thought "ow ... not a great choice for a first quilt" but then you posted your first few blocks and they looked so good I knew the whole thing would come together for you ... and it is!!!

    Curious ... are you removing the paper before you do the Y seams or are you doing the Y seams with paper still intact?? I ask because the first time I did Y seams with paper pieced blocks I removed the paper first (thinking I couldn't possibly do a Y seam with the paper still intact) and I had the usual Y seam distress (some good ... some needed a ripper). The other night I was making a block that was PP and I had changed the pattern a little and had not thought ahead far enough .. found myself in a sticky situation where I had do Y seams with paper pieces. So I jumped right in and sewed my Y leg with the paper in place. It was sew easy!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Really stunning! If I'm not mistaken that's a pattern called Starburst. I let each of my kids pick a pattern and this is the one my son picked. You are a very brave gal!! I've done some PP but each time I got the pattern out and read it I just put it away again and started on a different project. I will say seeing yours has made me get it out again and maybe this time I can at least go buy the fabric.

    Oh my! That is stunning! Your sister is a very lucky lady! I think you should change your board name to "Intrepid Quilter"! I am totally impressed and can't wait to see the finished product. Isn't it wonderful that we don't realize what we are getting into until we are hooked on the process and the pleasure?

    I'm getting ready to start my first quilt, and it is YEARS before I'll be ready to tackle anything like that! I'm nervous about my attempt, and I'm just going to be stitching together pre-cut jelly roll strips!!

    The quilt is wonderful. I hope your sister knows what you are going through for her or you can tell her someday. What a wonderful wedding gift.

    Wow! You are doing a great job and on a complicated pattern. That looks like a hard one for a first quilt! You can do it!

    Your 1st quilt, OMG!!! That is absolutely GORGEOUS. You certainly don't need help from anyone here. You could teach us a thing or two about creativity & skill. Kudos to you. Please show us the finished product. It is beautiful.
