Once in the cutting zone, it was hard to stop. I literally used every single minute of my class. It's so rare to be sewing without little ones underfoot. All my jewels, with the exception of one fabric, are cut. Whoop, whoop! I just love them:
|Gorgeous jewels ~ just love how they showcase the bigger scale prints|
All the jewels and triangles were cut with the Hex-N-More ruler. I've never actually bought a specialty ruler before. It made the job of cutting so easy and fast.
These blocks are much bigger than what I've worked on previously, and I love 'em! You actually see the large scale prints. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE tiny little paper piecing too. But this block just seems to go so fast. And fast is good :)
As a self-taught quilter, it was also fun to see how others approach the same project. My triangles look better than ever thanks to Susan's tips. From now on, it's clipping the corners!

|Love this blue print, but the yellow paisley may almost be my favorite|
Hopefully, I'll finish the top this month. Or next. We'll see. I'm dying to quilt it and the top isn't even assembled yet. Ha!
There aren't enough words to say just how AWESOME Susan's class was. I'm hooked and can't wait to take more.
