Thanks for the helpful links, Katie! I'm looking forward to this new adventure. And wandering around the Val Laird site I found some helpful info on using monofiliment. So a double thanks!

Broderie Perse, computer images and Y-seams... oh my!

Even though I did some attic window blocks, once, this is going to be quite the new adventure for me. I'm a little scared to read the remaining clues! Hopefully, piecing while standing on my head isn't going to be one of them?

Sounds like a little of everything.

For those who are scared off by something new, a small project is great to try something new. If it's something you find you love you can do that teqnique again in other projects. If it's something that's difficult or tedious you only need to do it a little to try and then you never need to try it again. I'm not a fan of Y seams but it's good to learn how to do it and I use that here and there.  But I know I would never choose to make a quilt that was all y-seams.

I agree with Jackie, small projects are great to try new techniques.  Don't be intimidated by Y-seams, once you get use to marking the corners, they are really not hard.  It may not be a fast sewing technique but you can do it.

Mari - seems like another form of applique and since it will be one piece rather than a bunch of little pieces, it should be fairly straightforward.  If it is your first applique, just pick a fabric image that is not detailed around the edge, think gradual curves, no points

"so no one's at all nervous about the broderie perse?"

A major reason I like these groups is being challenged to try something new. I might like it but if I hate it I never have to attempt it again. I'll never forget what it is then. A couple of years the term was an answer on Jeaporday. My DH was shocked that I knew the term. Me, too.

Wow, a bit of everything in this project :)

Barb is so right, marking the 1/4 inch for Y seams is the key to successfully doing it.

I'm getting excited!

Keep a smile in your heart :) Dorian
