What a pain in the butt! I envy your patience! I'd be throwing it away after the first partial strip. Aaaaghh-congratulations to you.


Wonderful job!!! I can tell you aren't in school this week ;)!!! I love all the explanations. You did a wonderful job! I just may have to try your pebble quilting some time.


just out of curiosity, why not more marbles?

Love your tutorial!!!! Very interesting and very unique design!!!! I too am practicing Leah's free motion designs!!! She certainly can inspire quilters!!

Oh, wow, you did a really great job on the tutorial! Would you mind if I linked to it the next time I do a blog post? I know that there are a lot of people who would like to know how to do it and your description is really helpful.
I have to try this out as soon as I get all those things on my to do list done! Until now I have been paper piecing my curves (such a pain!) and your method seems way better!
Thank you for sharing!


You came up with the same method as me for the partial curved pieces. Must be because great minds think alike!

Hope you are having a relaxing break!


Thanks for the tutorial on everything! I will have to try the binding tool!


What an awsome tutorial! Dpso detailed! You make it look so easy! I'm going to have to check out that tool. I feel the same way about binding too!!

Yea for lazy days! There are lots of ways to do reverse applique, and yours looks great! I think Leah Day taught me pebbling, also! We had a speaker at guild that showed us how to make that join, no extra tools needed. It was like a light bulb went off in my head! AHA! Whatever works and gets the look you want, I always say!

Thank for the instructions - they are clear enough to me that I feel I could try this. I really like the picture you started with and would love to try the project (provided I find the time). If I do I'll be sure and show it to you. As for the binding tool. I've thought about trying to bind a quilt that way. Right now I use the method where you overlap and it's working great. I can not find the start/stop point once I finished. But it's nice to know that tool is out there should I want it.

Wow, great job! I understand your technique but I need to make a queen sized quilt and am wondering how to cope with 90 inch strips. I would appreciate any advice you can give me. Thank you!
