    Actually think I learned this from QuiltE while doing PC blocks. That's what you get for Hand Piecing all your barbed wire blocks--you didn't pay attention to the PP hints (She also likes to stitch them in place in the seam allowance area)

    QNS--what beauties! When did you make these? Love the Delectable Mountains especially.

    gq2--these colors are going to be beautiful in your blocks!

    GQ2- your colors are scrumptious.

    Anael, the flowers are pre-printed not embroidery pattern, sorry. It's actually from several years ago so the fabric is no longer available. Dh declares it my best quilt ever, and it lays on my bed. The local QS here featured the fabric and Janet helped me to match fabric to the flowers. Then she machine quilted it for me. The delectable mt pattern was done in Texas, three of them, for our children's Christmas present from us. We started in Oct and finished three by Dec 6th.

    Of course! They're your blocks
    I modified the color scheme in two of mine.

    I'm also not putting the side pieces on, but leaving them as hexies and making each hexie into a place mat.

    Do what you want!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    DD - I just smear a strip of Elmers School Glue Stick on the first piece to keep it in place. It pulls off easily when you take all the paper off!

    QNS - those quilts are wonderful. I agree, I just love the one with the flowers! Beautiful!!!

    QNS what beautiful quilt, love all of them

    Another tip for Paper Piecing (and not everyone will agree) I backstitch at the start and end of every seam, why, cause I was getting frustrated with my seams coming apart when I took the paper off. And it is a pain in the petootie to hand stitch seams down after the block is finished. Problem solved

    More beautiful fabrics, wish I could show my design wall with my finished Spike blocks but I have to have patience and share next week..
