    Ok, I tried it. It's not bad. Was pretty easy, but I thought I had enough blocks to make this, but had to go thru my entire stash to find coordinating colors. That was the hard part. I don't have many pastels, but I made do.
    It's not sewn, just layed the blocks out

    If you see any blocks that should be moved, let me know.

    Looking good Terri :D

    Hardest part, making sure you don't end up with two fabrics or colours together....I spent ages going over and over, I stuck a piece of flannel on the wall with blue tack so I could position - reposition...stand back....start again, ooopps it fell off, now which way up did it go, like a giant jigsaw puzzle lol!!

    I can't tack anything to my walls, they are cement. :(
    Why wouldn't you cut it first? If ya didn't, then you'd just have the 9 patch block. This way, I have it all cut so I can see where everything would go.


    ***edit***
    Sewing it together now. Top should be done soon, I hope!

    Terri we have cement walls to in Spain....I just used sticky stuff, white gunk that sticks to the surface, a big glob of it then stuck pins thru the flannel into the gunk!!

    Looking forward to seeing it finished off!!

    Edit... forgot to mention I hung the flannel over a picture first so that takes most of the weight!! :oops:

    I see! Well, I don't have any wall space in my room. My book case takes the only wall that it would fit on. I don't have ANY pictures up on the walls :(
    I have pain in the arse landlords who said that in order for me to put pictures on the walls, I have to hire this lady who will do it for me. NOT!! So, instead of arguing with the landlords, we just don't have any up. I do have framed pictures in the house on bookcases and such, so it's not a pictureless house. I just can't have my fine art up :(

    Ok, I have the top done. I do have a couple seams that didn't match up. Don't know why, but they could have been blocks that I really wasn't going to use and got mixed up when a certain little girl kitten wanted to help. It's ok, can't really notice.

    I'll probably tie this one

    actual color of border

    No clue.....I just pay my rent and let them be.
    Had I known they were as anal as they are, I wouldn't have rented from them. Word to the wise....DO NOT RENT OVER THE INTERNET WHETHER YOU HAVE A REALTOR OR NOT!!
