    I thought it was about time I got stuck into these pre-cut blocks you sent over.

    I love them to bits...but sadly one of the fabrics was short..SO I had to improvise, I wanted a pattern that would flow with the original block, so do you think this works before I make any more....and just decided that I rather like the effect of the white plain block, then I could practice my quilting techniques in those areas.

    So I would love some imput on this guys... the fabrics are gorgeous, and it was so easy to piece together...this is the first time I have done traditional piecing :D

    So you think that centre block will do...but what about including a plain white block, I have some of that, the blocks are only 7" finished, so to make a decent size lap quilt, I need to expand it somehow??????? :D

    So come on Terri...wot to do??? IYHO!!

    Oh, very pretty, but what is missing, and is that all you have, or do you have more of the squares?

    well I think I better make myself clearer...... :roll:


    The blocks surrounding it with the half square triangles is the original block pattern - I made six of them.

    Then discovered there weren't enough of the floral triangle pieces :cry:

    SO I messed about with the fabrics that were left and came up with the other design - in the centre of the picture??

    So what I needed advice on is - does this block go with the original one o.k. in a chequerboard fashion OR should I separate them both with a plain white block???

    comprendes ahora mi amiga????
    :D

    Right then, thats the project for today, after I clean the windows...got my sister coming over on Wednesday....villa got to stand up to hotel inspectors lol!!

    Thanks for your help ladies....I was just abit unsure if I would get away with introducing another pattern, as I really liked the effect of the original, how it makes another pattern when they are pieced, so hoped that this would sort of flow too!!
