I am so happy that I have RA,PF,LT (www.gloriouscolor.com) and TFS (annettegero.com). It was not an easy decision which one will I make first. I love all of them. Finally I choose to start with The Sarah Evans Quilt (thank kim for the information).
Most of the fabrics are Kaffe Fasset, I will add the fabrics along with the process. I need to order them from gloriouscolor, because Kaffe fasset collections at local quilt shops are very limited.
I scan the pattern, enlarge them, and print directly on freezer paper. After write down the number and cut out the pattern, I iron them onto the right side of fabrics, and trace them around. Choosing the fabrics is another big issue. Maybe it is not the right process, but i choose fabric for one piece of the pattern and then do applique instead of choose and cut for all the pieces of the pattern. I do front basting and needle turn method. I could not stop....
Here is my first block. It took me one day to complete it. For the stems I use clover quick bias. My buddy insisted me to take a picture of him with the block:)
