    Oh i forgot to say, no laughing ok. I needed some green fabric in the stash for this project.
    I headed to check out DH's shirts. He is no longer working and they are taking up room.

    I found the perfect green to go with my NYB fabrics, 100% cotton too~

    Getting there! Man oh man is this a challenge. But then, maybe it's what I'm supposed to be doing - to stretch and challenge myself as a quilter. Will I ever enter this quilt into a show??? Heck no! Maybe show this at my guild meeting? Yes, provided they don't look too closely. lol

    I will persevere!!! I will not let this get the best of me. I will conquer this project. OK. I feet better. Thank you for letting me vent.

    As you can see from my first attempt at the #1 block, I lost (sacrificed, chopped off, etc) one of my points. Please see the previous sentence. . . .

    I'm coming up with new curse words. Who wouldn've thought it???

    I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. . . . .

    How is everyone else???

    I get the point! As I see it, all the points are perfect.
    Great choice of fabrics too. The scrappy look is fantastic in these blocks.
    I think my favorite is block1

    I'm so glad to see more photos. Everyone has different colours, but they have chosen fabrics which co-ordinate so well. Love everyone's blocks.

    I had begun a Batik paper pieced Sampler before I signed up to do the NYB here. I just finished these four
    blocks so take a peek. I really enjoy paper piecing. Name:  DSC01814.JPG

    These are the blocks I have made so far. I'm quite happy with block 0 but not block 1. Is there a secret to getting the circles to sit nicely I undid this one sooo many times I wore a hole in the fabric. I think I've got the hang of the points. Do you square these blocks up ? Any advise gladly accepted. Thank you.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    QA, the circles are a challenge for me too. I finally tore the paper off, and used my sewing skills. If you have ever sewn a blouse/shirt, think "set in sleeves".

    I did square up my blocks when I finished each one.
    sometimes When I quilt, I don't square them up until I sew them together though. No excuses, it is just the way I do it.

    Nice colors, I love the scrappy thing you have going. I am trying to get scrappier.....

    Oh such pretty blocks. I love paper piecing and am dying to start this. I am finishing up my 50 fabulous paper pieced stars project on here. I have the quilt together and need to make a back and finish the matching wall hanging. I have a picture posted on that thread. I am really happy with how it came out. I did it scrappy with matching background fabric. I plan on doing this totally scrappy. My stash has gotten totally out of control. I need to use some of it up. I will use batiks. I have tons of it. Can't wait to start this has been on my buchet list for a long time.
