    Thanks for explaining that, looking at the quiltcache pattern I thought I needed 4 or 8 prints and two solids.

    i don't know why you thought you were being a pain.
    we are doing this to help ourselves and each other explore and grow as quilters.
    mistakes and questions are a big part of that.

    How fun! Now to decide what fabrics I want to use on this. Stuff from my stash or possibly build up a stash of 30's reproductions and use those. Hmmm......
    Avatar is a quilt made by my great grandmother that I inherited.

    Hello and Happy New Year to you all!
    I am new to this site and I am so exctied that I find myself on it all the time. I love this block !! However do you think it would look good made out of scraps. I am also looking for a fast and easy pattern that I can make out of many 5 inch squares. Anyone have any ideas ??? if so send them my way.

    I decided to do 30's too. I have a little stash but I'm having trouble matching solids to the prints.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    yes. this block would look great in scraps.
    just make sure you pick scraps from four color families.

    I made 2 blocks/ 1 using traditional piecing & 1 pp. Quilters cache instructs to make 8 trap segments that are the same. Well I did & it about drove me crazy trying to figure out how to get my trap segments positioned correctly!
    Went back to computer & looked at pix in grayscale then I saw the problem/ 4 needed to be reversed. That block will stay as a simple star & pp block will be correct

    There is a really good little maybe 3 minute tutorial on the jinny beyer site on Y seams. she shows how to do them by machine and how to do them by hand. I think it makes perfect sense when you watch it live if you can get away from checking out all her gorgeous fabric. If I won the lotto it would ALL be mine! I had never seen her stuff before but wow. still havent sat down to do this yet. lucky for me the month is still young.

    It wasn't the Y seams that drove me crazy, that's not a problem but the finished segments were all the same & actually you needed 4 segments and another 4 that were their mirror image.
    The block is still interesting and has a star, just not a whirling star.
    Thanks to Patrice showing the different ways to position them to get different blocks, I didn't feel bad leaving it the way it came out

    I really like this block. I have been very intimidated by paper piecing but of course I want to try it. Can I use regular printer paper or do I need special paper? And here I was think I was going to play with my "Rose" tomorrow out in the studio..
