Glad to help, Maureen! Just use the parts from each video that work for you!
There are even more techniques but I figured these tips may help some people get jump started!

I have just watched the first 3 videos and say bravo to Margo. I have done paper piecing before but learned more that will really help.
Thanks for doing this.

I also greatly appreciate Margo's videos. :D

However, to TQS, I think the fact of whether or not a BOM will be accompanied with monthly videos should be publicized from the onset. I was new to TQS last year and made my decision to try the 2013 BOM (and buy a kit) based on the assumption (I know, my mistake!) that videos were to be provided as they were for the 2012 BOM. :(

Margo, I want to thank you for doing the videos. They are wonderful. I first tried the technique in the instructions, they were extremely well done, but the blocking concerned me as it would have taken me forever. I was able to take all of the techniques and create my own. I find great fun in learning with every project. Annis, I also want to thank you for sharing all of your ideas. Making everything just a tiny bit larger didn't waste fabric, but gave me some lee way. I am now anxious to start next month. Carol

Thanks Judy. Yes, I turned in a video on using freezer paper for the foundation but you don't sew through the paper! You can also see the technique on show # 707 with a real pro, Judy Mathieson: [url]watch/watch-shows/video/show-707-stellar-star-circles[/url]

I also turned in a PDF with photos showing what I learned when I made my first units according to the instructions.

I have no idea when these will be posted.

Margo, is there one more video for month one?

The 3 videos up are terrific -- so appreciate your efforts and the speed you executed them. There are so many things I like about them -- the logic of the presentation, the knowledge you convey, and the great summary at the end.

Thanks so much, Jo

Aaaaah...sigh of relief. I LOVE this quilt. And I really want my skill set to match. I've already learned just from all of you sharing your processing of how to approach this.

Quilters are so generous. Thank you Sue and Pat for the gorgeous challenge and thanks Margo and Alex for making it happen for us!

Should we be putting in our names in for more fabric if we've decided to paper piece? And if we decide to piece but still need some more fabric, should we be putting our names somewhere for that as well? I've already prewashed the kit fabic, so assume I will be short this first month. Thanks! And thanks, Margo, for providing us with a video. This visual learner is eternally grateful.

Thank you Margo!
Although I have already started the BOM using templates, I would love to see your videos. You are such a great teacher and I have learned so much from you over the years. We love you!

I will also look forward to seeing Margo's video's. I wasn't planning on doing this BoM but I do love the look of the sashing and hope to use it with a different set of blocks that I am anticipating from an exchange over on Threadbias. Which reminds me - I had better get on and start saving the instructions....

I'm looking forward to trying 3 different ways to paper piece these sections. Thanks, Margo. I hope it's not too much work (or the pay is GREAT!
