    Kristen:

    Thanks for the suggestion on how to cut the fabric for pieces. I'll try it with the next block.

    I'm not so sure that your Zero blocks are not useable. Perhaps you want to make a flange border for those blocks. It could be quite striking.

    Thanks again for the answers to my questions. Can't wait to get back to working on block #1 again.

    That is a great idea. How was your Thanksgiving?

    I had a great thanksgiving. I entertained friends on Saturday, and on Sunday entertained family. Once all my visitors went home on Monday all the sheets went into the laundry and I sewed. It was a great weekend. Had to go back to work to rest!!!

    I'm looking forward to doing a little bit of sewing this evening as well. These blocks are a bit of a challenge, but that is always fun.

    I had 15 people (friends and family) for dinner Sunday. It was quite the feast! My pumpkin cheesecake with marshmallow topping was really good. We pretty much finished off a 21.5 lb turkey I boiled the carcass and pulled the meat off and we had soup Monday.

    Good work!!

    I downloaded and resized the patterns. I plan to use 8 of them for a purse, as mine is about work out. It'll probably be next month before I have time to get started.

    I must say all these blocks look wonderful. But as for myself am having trouble getting it together. The pp is going fine, it's sewing the curves. I read the instructions, but it's just not clicking with me just yet. But seeing the wonderful job everyone else is doing, it will give incentive to keep trying. Love this block so will keep trying. Is there any little tips of putting this together to make it easier that I am missing?

    LOL!! I was determined to get my blocks started yesterday. I got in a hurry. I was done with the first one and happy. Got up this morning and thought it looked wrong. I have put my A pieces together the wrong way and ended up with a very nice wedge block. Oh well, guess I will be ripping this morning. And hopefully won't repeat it.

    Tip: For curved pieces. I sew along the seam line. Then I rip the paper out from the seam line area leaving the majority of the paper on the block. I snip along the curved pieces to allow for curving the seam. I also smash the paper down if it's bugging me. I also use LOTS of pins. I may have pictures of this at home I will try and post them tonight.

    Here are my Block 1's
    oh wow, I am so glad I signed up for this. BUT....life won't let me sit down at the machine. I still have time so I will this month make time.

    I wanted to comment on these blocks. Beautiful and scrappy. Scrappy, is so cool. This is how scrappy I want to do mine. So this means less fretting or what goes in which block.

    the pictures and tips are great. Thank you
    Renea

    A quilting I will go......
