    Kristen, your block is gorgeous! It sure inspires but I guess time is the issue, not the inspiration

    Kristen, this is a great idea! Now I need to go peek through my stash to see what I'd like to use!
    Love your block too!

    Would you be giving us a different NYB block each time? In other words, will you provide us the patterns each month?

    I've made two of these type of quilts with great results......didn't do fancy, but learned that almost any combination using contrasting colors is dynamite! I have used batiks and blenders mostly.....

    Oh BOY, I am inspired by your Batik fabric block!! One question, when we make four 8" blocks of each of the pattern's, are they suppose to be identical or in different colors? I just wanted to make sure as I haven't tried this pattern before. I plan to monkey around with it a little bit today!!

    I was wondering the same SulaBug! I only made the NYB block once for my Sylvia so I'm very new to this. When I look at the quilt in one of the links all blocks are different so it might not matter what you do.
    Isn't it going to be a huge quilt with 4 blocks of each of the patterns?

    OKAY!! I couldn't stand it any longer, so I got out some black & white fabric & made the beginner block, just for fun. It went together so quickly & I didn't have any problems at all. My DH really likes it & wants me to make more. So, I guess you would say that I am definately in!!

    I'm in. At least I'll do my best!
    A quilt is a hug for future generations.

    Your block looks great! They are so fun. As for the blocks and making them identical that is up to each person. Personally I most likely make them all different. I am so glad you're in!

    It seems like a lot but the blocks finished size is 8 1/2 inches the end will be 40 blocks, if we make 2 more blocks the quilt could be 6 across and 7 down. And of course because it's a quilt along you can always make more or less depending on how you want the finished size and layout to look like.
