Thanks for the encouragement, Gail! It's early morning after a long night of NCAA basketball :D I finished my month 3 arcs except for ironing and trimming. I think I'm going to do some blocking as well. About 95% of my points are sharp, the rest, well, maybe I won't worry about dull knives.

I did study the picture of the completed quilt for a while. Yikes. I wish I had left the paper on month one sashing strips. That's a LOT of pinning to get those points sharp.

This will feel like a glorious accomplishment when it's finished.

Well, silveryquilt, I keep plowing onward to get through. I'm finding these arcs to be rather tedious. I didn't mind the paper-piecing part at all, once I learned how to do it.

Thank goodness for the Seam Destroyer.

Enjoyed the video, thank you for sharing, she makes it look so easy. Looks like you will make it before the end of the month Susan. I'm looking forward to seeing your month 3 pic.

Out of the 3 ways, lots of pins, no pins and two pins, I'm having the most success with two pins...almost done month 3.

Excellent video, watched them all. Never did the pinless archs so I guess when I get to month 3 definitely will be trying.

Great video (even the one on cutting)!
The method with pins is almost "pinless" - just one in the middle and the at the end...

Thanks for the info, I will try that.

She shows how to do drunkards path....... I have done this and found it easy, I made a lap quilt using her method but I'm sure it is similar to lots of other methods.
