    It turned out great Katie! If you are using it for the checkbook it needs to be 4" or less. Can you cut it down to that size and still have a 1/4" seam allowance? I trim my sashings to 3/4" or 5/8" so the whole quilt block is smaller. If you need to do a smaller one you might try makeing your sashings smaller.

    I love your colors and you did a wonderful job on this!!

    I think it will be right at 4". But I might make my sashings a little narrower. But I think it turned out so cute. But then again, my decorating in my living room/dining room/ kitchen is decorated in "Native American". So who knows, I may end up making more and make them into coasters. Tons of possibilities.

    ditto, isn't it amazing what different fabric, and a small border can make the same block look so different. I want to see everyone else's blocks too.

    That's just so cool. I wonder how I can get my blocks I make in EQ6 to look more realistic like yours do. Will have to read up on that one. I thought the last block you threw in there by accident but as I scrolled the screen up and just saw half the block, then I saw the Bears Paws. Before that all I saw was squares and flying geese......lol

    Rhonda, the blocks that are all turned around are different, but makes me look to see how you twisted them & it's clever how you can think outside the box. I'll have to try this when I can sew/quilt again. I'm really missing it.

    Tammy I have EQ5 so I don't know if yours is similar but I presume so. I go into new block and I draw the line to make an HST. 2 triangles. Then I go back to the quilt and I set the layout for a 2 by 2 block layout. Then you go back to layer 1 and put my new block into the squares. I add my own fabrics to my library. So I use my own fabrics in most of my designs. If you need to see it I can probably do a screenshot to show the steps.

    Rhonda, I will try to scan in some of my fabrics first and see how that does. I just thought maybe the fabrics that come with it would look more realistic.
