    As the excitement builds about Jen Kingwell's Pick a Petal, I found a you tube video where Jen tells
    how she picks fabrics for a quilt. I thought it was very insightful. It is on the modafabricss you tube channel.
    I took a screen shot so you could google it if you are interested. HelenW

        When will we find out fabric suggestions for this? Not until the first block is released or before? Today I ordered two fat quarter bundles and some 1/2 yard cuts on a Black Friday sale. No where near what I need I’m sure, but it’s a start. Anxious to start this!

          The Fabric Requirements document is already in the Pick A Petal section of LEARN:

            Hope this gives you some ideas you like. To get the whole circle on the outside border, make a mirror
            image of the original half circle and sew together. HelenW

              Thank you Monique G, I usually don't follow directions very well and just make it up as I go. I enjoy
              helping other quilters. Once you get 25 or 30 years experience, it seems a whole lot easier
              to see possibilities when a problem comes up. And now that I have learned how to use
              EQ8 I can figure out most problems without having to use my pencil and graph paper.
              I just have fun doing it all.

            Barbara,
            The quilt in the blog today called Flying In Circles made me think, "Boy, that quilt has a lot of curves" and so beautifully
            done. I googled the maker and then came across the website Zen Chic. There I found a video on machine piecing curves
            and in the middle of the video she does one that is somewhat similar to pick a petal in the way she approaches the way she
            stitches the curves into a block. Anyway, if you are still looking for a way to machine piece that block 2 you might watch the
            10 minute video to see if it gives you some new ideas. HelenW

              I did watch it and it was helpful. I am working on glue basting gentle curves and also trying to find an alternative block as an option. Time will tell.

            Barbara, Did you find an alternate block for 2 or are you still looking? I saw a bow tie block that might look good with block 1.
            If you have found something let me know, and I won't post any other ideas. HelenW
