    OK -- I was not satisfied with my first block. Changed the colors a little, set up for better scant 1/4" seam, and did get better results. My block is still not exactly square, but think it could work and size is just a smidgen short if I squared it properly. Took me over 4 hours just to sew it. Cut pieces yesterday. I don't think I would want to make a whole quilt with this block unless I learned to do it much better and faster.

    I had one block done and didnt like the color combo,so now I am going to try another. PP I like ,so hoping this one is a better color combo. I dont think it's a block I would do again. I have not been quilting that long to take on such a hard block

    Ok. Here is my block. I am still such a newbie. It was hard for me. Took me just a little over an hour and those "y" seams just seemed to want to pucker. I guess I got good at taking apart and trying again. I'm my own worst critic! Name:  DSCN0530.JPG

    Hi

    I fnaly had time to do some sewing after been call to work on the Australian Bush fires that are going at the moment.

    After reading all the threads that are posted I was a bit worried about doing this block, but I found it went together easy by following the picture on the first site we where given.
    I desided to use up the fabric I had left over from the Quilt for Rosie (from quiltingboard) I have just finished just adding a bit more yellow and black, hope this works out for all blocks., rather than buy new fabric.

    Love the colors, and you did a really nice job. It would go with my block. I'm waiting for next month to see which way I'm going to go with the color scheme. But I am loving the black and white and one other color!
