Headlong without checking how deep the water is first!
This is what I want to do:
The center blocks I believe are called 'amish diamond in squares' or somesuch and it's from one of my mom's patchwork books from the 70's. The border is Ribbons from Quilterscache.com, with a modified triangular corner block.
Each block is 16" - 6x6 layout = 36 blocks; 96x96 inches.
I've already figured out the fabric yardage (hopefully correctly!) and bought it. I actually just went out and bought a bit more for shams. The border is 4" squares, but the amish blocks have a bit of variety with 3" and 1" squares and a center of approx. 4 1/2" square.-- I have similar diagrams of each block style.
I'm wondering if anyone has advice on how to keep organized during the project; how to keep it neat (no wrinkles, etc) so I don't have to iron 70% of the time. And any other advice, of course, for a newbie, is always welcome. Please advise on binding a jagged edge! I can easily just insert pieces to smooth out the edges, but I don't really want to do that.
And for a side note, I won't get started on this until next week -- we're in the middle of moving, and my sewing machine is packed up
Oh yeah... Stop me now if you think I'm going to burn up with this task I've set myself!
