    After taking a couple of years off from quilting, I feel it is time to get started again! Life kept getting in the way, 3 moves in the last 18 months (2 local and 1 long distance) and two of the houses had no extra room to sew in. I now have the the choice of rooms and might move my things out to the studio instead of being in the house.
    All previously posted blocks look awesome and made me want to join in the fun!
    Anyhow, here is my block, not perfect but will do til I decide to redo it. My problem was trying to get the template to print at the right size and I didn't succeed at that. My block is only 11 1/4".

    I haven't been here for a while and enjoyed looking at all the gorgeous blocks! You all did so well!

    Fun2quilt, your block looks great. If you have a problem printing make sure your scaling (on the print screen) is set to NONE- I have learned that the hard way. I have made a few other blocks and they turned out a bit too small, so I have added a border around the blocks to make them 12 1/2", one I measured wrong and had to add two small borders, WOW did that make a striking block.

    I think my block would be voted "Most Unlikely Colors!"
    I haven't been to town to buy the batiks I'd like to make a quilt with, so I just used some leftover fabric I had , and some I received in a Secret Swap here.

    I had Sula's post with her pretty block open on the sewing room computer, so her smiling face Avatar was like having someone look over my shoulder.

    I used Patrice's templates, thanks for posting those Patrice.

    I'm enjoying looking at all the beautiful blocks. I think I like the effect of the background with solid, one color blocks the best. The black and white, and black and yellows one are really striking!

    That's pretty cas..if you're using patrice's you do need the 4 fabrics like you used this time because of the different sizes on the spokes....it's very striking! I'm so enjoying each member's photos.... and have to admit it's hard to think we have another month before our next pattern!
