    Hi guys, here is this weeks thread. I'm posting it now because I have a couple of questions for those of you who are ahead of me.

    It appears to me that A10 could be pieced like a log cabin block then have the triangles and melon appliqued on top...is that how ya'll did it?

    On the tri..... :shock: :?: Can you PP this with the curve or should I pp the "arcs" then just cut the curves from a template and sew those together???

    The rest look pretty straight forward if not the easiest...at least doable. :wink: :D

    I did A10 exactly as you describe. With the tri, I made up a rectangle that consisted of two coloured sections with the background triangle in between, using PP methods, for each curved section, then I appliqued them to a background triangle.

    Thanks exactly what I was wondering....thanks for the info Lesley and for posting yours...they look wonderful too! I like your idea of appliqueing to the tri...but I might be brave enough to try sewing the curve...we'll see... Thank you!

    Sharon...I was thinking about this all day...I don't think you can PP a curve like that...I don't think it would work... BUT...we can PP the arcs with that little tri between the 2 sections. :D

    Lesley, Your blocks are perfection! :)

    Is your background fabric the same weight as the batik fabric? I am curious because the background looks like a heavier weight muslin, or is it a different cream fabric? All your blocks are lovely.

    It's Kona cotton Natural, so it looks like muslin, but handles like regular quilting cotton. Washes like a dream too. I bought a bolt of it (15 yards) from Hancocks of Paducah, and I still have a few yards left on the bolt yet, with only 41 blocks left to make. But I am going to use this same cotton for all the inbetween tris, so that will use up a fair bit. I am thinking of getting a wide batik backing, perhaps from Thousands of Bolts, if not, this fabric comes in a wide width too.

    It will be the same as the latest posting on the main board, and yes, that's what I wanted, because I think all the work that goes into the tris gets lost with the coloured fabric either side of them. I am still trying to think of a nice design to quilt in those plain infill tris - Jane just did V shaped lines.
