    Is there advice you would give someone who was going to start the Project of Doom?

    Kaylee Ovel Absolutely!

    You will need the same background fabric throughout the entire quilt, and I recommend something neutral, a tone on tone beige, gray or similar, that will make the block designs stand out.

    My estimate for the background fabric is 2 1/2 yards, but I recommend getting 3 yards. It's always better to have extra than to run out and not be able to match your fabric later! That leaves a lot of wiggle room for mistakes and hopefully room for your own style of paper piecing. All other fabrics for the actual blocks are small amounts, plus your sashing and border.

    I'm so nervous! I think I'm going to try this. It will be my FIRST project, my FIRST paper piecing. I have a question about the fabrics for everything else besides the background, sashing, and border. Can I just use a bunch of scraps in different colors to put it all together? Should I buy several fat quarters in the colors/designs of my own choosing or is there a specific color/design to use?

    wpbmommy1 Absolutely you can use a bunch of scraps! With a few exceptions, I only used scraps and tried not to repeat fabrics. It was a challenge, but a fun one! For the Sorting Hat, Monster Book of Monsters, Hedwig and the cauldron, I used fat quarters.
