        The dark background is lovely and gives the quilt a whole new look. Even the nine patches have a whole new look. Your quilt is special.

        Finished Month 8 and can’t wait for the next four blocks when the quilt top will be completed. I am loving the appliqué journey which is new territory for me. I reversed the vase so that it “faced” towards the centre of the quilt and choose fall colours representing the upcoming season in Canada.

          I bought this kit thinking I could do it, but health issues have kept me from even starting. Everyone’s work is beautiful. Mine still is in the plastic wrapper!

                Grma46, Hope you are feeling better. A little stitching is just the thing to get your mind off health problems. You can take
                advantage of all the posts on the forum from the very beginning. Maybe just go to month one and with a note pad write tips
                and things you like about different quilters techniques, color combo's etc and pictures. Take the time to print out the pattern for each month. If you are thinking you might do it next year, the videos will be there but the pattern won't be.
                It is never too late to start. You can always jump in anywhere and say just do applique blocks or pieced blocks to get you going.
                HelenW

                I added my quilt-to date. Please ignore the bright blue as my big “design wall” is another quilt.

                    Amy, You might have to reduce the size of your photos. When I used to get the box with the ? it was
                    because my photos were too big to upload. On my iMac I bring up the photo to upload, go to the
                    top bar on the computer, click on tool, scroll down to size, and set it at 50%. That always works for me. If you go to search on the forum Barbara has a lot of posts on uploading photos. Would love
                    to see your progress. Try again. HelenW
