Thank you Monica & Alaura! Finished the 1st block even figured out how to post on the FB page☺️ An entire quilt would look good w/just this one block. Can’t wait for block 2. Love Alaura’s comments and giggles in the background and the out takes at the end! Keep inspiring! ❤️

Finished all my pinwheels thought it would be difficult but your instructions and tutorial were very informative The hardest part for me was squaring the block. I looked to see if you had a tutorial for it, I didn’t see any. Do you have one?

Fantastic that you finished your pinwheels block! There are instructions for trimming the individual pinwheel blocks after they are quilted on page 6 and 7 of the course notes. I found that if I trimmed them all individually first, the completed block with the sashing was a 17" square. This can be slightly bigger or smaller as it will be made to the correct size with a QAYG border so it's a very forgiving block. I will make sure that I go into more detail about trimming in upcoming videos.

Ok, well I assume a multi-coloured background will work just as well as a cream background fabric. It will be an experiment for sure!😊

Thank you Monica for catching that! Whimsical is fine by me!

Hi Monica, I should have asked earlier. I have so much fabric of my own that I am trying to use up. Do you think that it would be alright to have a different solid colour background fabric for each QAYG block? Also for the backing, same question? So for example, the backing would be multicoloured and the background also would be multicoloured? Thank you immensely for providing this course, exactly what I needed to learn all facets of the QAYG method.
