Would you give it a go?


Amitie BOM block, originally uploaded by Lynne @ Lilys Quilts.

If I posted a tutorial for a simplified version of this block in weekly parts, would you give it a go? You could make a small wall hanging or a pillow or just have a play and make a block just because and to use up some scraps. We'd be practising foundation paper piecing which is actually very simple and is a great way to get very pointy points. If there's enough interest, I'll write it up but otherwise I'll just file it in a small drawer in the back of my brain where it will probably get lost for a few years then re-surface as some inopportune moment.

  2. I would be interested - already paper piece, but the more modern and circles are something I need to work on with encouragement.

  12. I like a challenge and would give it a try. Most likely, I'd use the block in a quilt with other challenging orphan blocks I've made. For example, my "Cuesta's Choice" block, which you can see on my Flickr photostream.
