    I just found this cool site and was wondering if anyone here on the Quilting Board site is making these blocks.

    I think it would be a cool way to learn to make more blocks.

    It sounds intriguing, but I usually like to pick out my own.

    It does sound interesting - but I have tooooo many projects in the works now - I'm 'trying' to control myself.

    The idea of a group trying to make the same block may help some people try new techniques they might otherwise be afraid to try alone and with no other directions or help.

    I don't think I'll join, but I might try the first block and see how it goes. I'm still having quilting 'issues' but really believe that I'm going to improve with lots of practice. :lol:

    Thanks for the info CB. :thumbup:

    yes, I think by making different blocks will help me with the confidence that I can make them.
