    Just HAD to show you guys this. I found this pattern last night about 10:00 -- stayed up till midnight trying it out!!!! Hint: the picture of her pattern shows squares in the wrong place...I had to go to the written word and follow that. That's hard to do when you're a "visual" type of person!!! Anyway, this is out of scraps...now I'll probably not find something I like to make it with!!! Oh - the pic makes my carpet look mauve....it's not!!! It's beige! Here's the website where I found it: http://www.freequilt.com/amishquilts.html It's called "Amish boxes"

    That block looks like a lot of fun to make. Thanks for sharing. Have fun finding the perfect fabric. Always the challenge but we're up to it! :lol:

    Here's a hint....looks like 1 block of 4 in the center...but there's actually 2 4-blocks. The picture makes it look like 1 4 block with longer pieces on the side....but you actually put the longer pieces on the top and bottom of the 4-block........GEEZE, that THAT make sense?????? and yes, it WAS fun!!! Otherwise, I wouldn't have been up till midnight!!!! LOL

    I looked that block up---and was struck by how oddly it was assembled. I like your way better, it looks simpler to do. Beautiful block, btw. Hope to see the whole quilt soon. :thumbup:

    Aw such beautiful fabrics. I love looking at this one, the balance of shape and colors and feather textures is just exquisite!

    Great looking block. Looks harder than you make it sound.

    Not really....just sewing blocks together in the right order!! Give it a try! Be sure to use light and dark fabrics to get the best "OOMPH"!! :thumbup:
