After visiting Amitie last week and purchasing Jen Kingwell's Steampunk pattern I've been very motivated to start making the quilt. It seems as if I am not the only one that has been motivated to make this gorgeous quilt! A few of us online have decided we need a support group to keep us motivated through this somewhat difficult pattern. Amy and I have decided to start a no pressure/no time limit Flickr support group which you can find here. We will be posting tips and tricks on how to make the quilt and providing encouragement to help us get through the making of this quilt. It's a Quilt Along at your pace. Please come and join us!
I also wanted to add in case you haven't worked with freezer paper previously that you can use the same paper templates over and over... The same templates should last for the entire project.
I am by no means an expert, but I thought I would share with you this mini tutorial in pictures the method with which I am using to cut my fabrics out in case you might not have worked with freezer paper in the past. This is just my method, I am sure there are plenty of other ways to go about it, but I thought I would share with you!
