    So many I can't remember. Some I've even made up on my own.
    One of my favorites was from a cross stitch and called Cherokee Star. I printed the picture of the cross stitch out and it came out about a 2 inch square. The four little blocks in the center were about 3/8ths of an inch square. I had to use a strong magnifying glass to see them well enough to sketch them out on graph paper.

    My favorites are paper pieced blocks... I was in the BOM here for quite a while, and I have a stack of blocks made from using all kinds of techniques :D:D:D
    I haven't ever made a sampler quilt.

    What blocks have you made? You forgot to list yours :D:D:D
