Already purchased this book when it first came out was addicted on viewing it.
Also bought the fabric ready to do it - but I am using cotton not silk dupion.
Promised myself I would finish other items first before starting it - but may not!!
What are you going to start on first?

I bought this book after the Festival of Quilts last year. My friend and i have been buying silk each month for it and now have enough to start. The quilt looks fabulous, i have already made 2 projects from the book, the quilted box and the wavy tucks bag. I have to say that i have used more functions of my sewing machine on these projects than i have in the past 4 years. Very challenging but so much fun. I am about to start on the center piece with my newly purchased silk *gulp* ! so would love to hear of anyone else doing it.

I was lucky enough to meet Pauline (author of the book) a few years ago at the NEC March show, she is an amazing teacher, I had just started quilting and she was teaching embroidery techniques using the Husgavarne Viking Quilting machine, both my mum and I loved using them and both bought the quilting machines that day, and havent looked back. The book is inspirational and I am on and off working on my Heirloom quilt, but like many of you, I start one project and pick up another until I have about 6 quilts or projects on the go at once. I love the book and I am extremely excited to see that Pauline is back at the NEC this year after a few years break. There is an 9 square cushion in the book which uses a technique where you use a drawing pin and masking tape to sew circles on the sewing machine, its really easy and is amazing effect when you cut the circle into 4 pieces and turn them out. (sorry I am not explaining this very well, I need to up load photos I think)
Anyway its a brilliant book has some very interesting machine embroidery techniques and well worth the money.
