    Beautiful blocks, Gus! The colors are just beautiful. That might be the best A11 yet. Looks like you did the dreaded Y-seams.

    Thanks everyone!! I'm really loving the fabrics I bought a while back - ordered from I think keepsake quilting [maybe]. The plaid on A7 [appropriately "Dad's Plaid" block] and the paisley on A9 were from a Moda civil war 10" square stack [layer cake???]. No "Y" seams on A9. If I manage to complete A11, I will post today. I don't mind those seams myself [particularly after taking A1 apart so often - I must hold the 'reverse sewing' record! by the way I know how to 'unquilt' as well I got lots of experience when my machine was acting poorly]

    Yes Nancy - I should've picked up on joining those sections too. If you all look carefully before making A9, you can add triangles around the white-striped row. That will also help because you don't have to match the seam lines on the triangles!! did some reverse sewing there.

    After I took the pictures, I went to the "Help" section here on the board and followed the instructions for sizing photos in Microsoft Picture Manager before I tried to post. Hope that helps. I want to add that there are about 8 pictures there. They just kind of flowed together.

    I have a question about re-drafting blocks. I don't have EQ on my computer. Are there any other programs that allow you to draw a block and print out the paper piecing templates? I've looked for tutorials online but have come up blank so far. I want to re-draft A1 and saw how others did it on previous pages in this thread but, as I say, I don't have EQ.
