I stopped by a quilt shop on my way out of town Wed and bought the Hickory Nut template. The template is an original design from the shop. Eddie has a great tute on these: Tutorial on Hickory Nut quilt blocks
I bought all three sizes but started with the largest Nut. My first was was like the first pancake, but my second was perfect. They are addictive! I like the fact that when you are done you are done. And on the shop website there is a nice statement about Eddie and a link to this board!
The shop is so pretty. Lots of light, lots of quilt samples hanging up, and very friendly employees. It's about two hours from me so I always make time to stop when I'm passing by.
