    Thanks everyone for your kind remarks.
    roseOfsharon,

    If I can give you a bit advice for the snowflakes, use spray starch on those triangles before you sew. I hate doing HSTs of any size and those little ones were daunting. I am a really stubborn person and decided I would do them. I found they were easier to work with when the fabric was fairly stiff from the starch. Also use leaders before you chain sew them so the machine won't eat the triangles as easily.

    Mine aren't perfect but they are satisfactory. You can do it.

    Me too, Bill for so many reasons.

    We are going to Paris in April so it can't get here fast enough!

    I also haven't been able to guess what April's row will be and I love surprises.

    Looking forward to seeing roseOfsharon's snowflakes.

    Hey ligia!
    The quilt is called Le Jardin using Rouenneries by French General from Moda fabric, the BOM can be purchased from The Thrifty Needle or Quilter's Shop, both are dot.com stores online. www.thethriftyneedle.com is a little cheaper for the BOM. There's plenty of applique involved with this one and applique is new to me, so it's challenging. It's just so...oh la la French!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    Sure come on along! We are going on our own, no tour so it will be an adventure for sure.

    I loved your BOM. That is truly gorgeous fabric. I will have to save my Euros in case I come across something similar there. We'll have to live on ketchup soup for the next month so I can have Euros for fabric! :)

    Off to research quilt shops in Paris!

    RoseofSharon, good luck. I'm looking forward to seeing your results.

    Oh do have a wonderful time in Paris! woot! I have not gotten the shamrock under my belt! I just cannot seem to wrap my sewing machine around it LOL I did go ahead and do the hearts and started the shamrocks today. They seem simple compared to the snowflakes!

    I will look forward to hearing all about your adventures in Paris.. Have fun.

    Woot! well I have struggled and ripped out and gave up on the snowflake... went ahead and made February and March blocks.... But... I was not giving up on Janurary, sooooooo I looked over the pattern directions and still felt it just is too small to work with lol.. so I decided to cut the blues lt, and dk but not cut them twice diagonally. Doing so, I sewed the blues together right sides together down the center of the triangle and then cut the 1/4" walla I had the shape and sewn.. then sewed it to the white triangle. Wow, am I happy to say I have ONE made :) and it is just fine in my eyes.. (beginner here) Here is a picture of it!

    Awesome Sharon! Your pinwheel is beautiful.

    Somehow, I started on the hearts. Just need to sew the left side to the right side, then sash them and that row will be done. I'll post a picture when I finish them.

    Here's what I have so far. I want to make some more hearts, then play with the fabrics to see which ones I want duplicates of.

    I love how you made your hearts with other than red fabrics! Gives me ideas for some of the other blocks! :D
