    Thanks Tweety, Its not spectacular, Really need Batiks to make this pattern shout, Im here. I did the blue background to designate sky. And then the flare of white, yellow and red. The fabrics look great with all the other blocks in the BOM quilt so far, but definitely does not have the pizzazz the Batiks bring to the square.
    Have an awesome day!

    Here's my block, just finished today. And, like Rural, this was my first attempt at paper piecing. Hopefully if I do another one, the seams will line up!

    Thanks, Sulabug and Jeanine for your nice comments!

    Thanks also go to that nice tutorial I found on youtube. The pumpkin fabric I used in the block came from Vogue Fabrics in Evanston IL. I had a chance to go there last week during a layover between trains. I could have spent all day going through their remnant bin!

    WOW you all made such gorgeous blocks! I had a great time looking
    I should start on my block too but I have to finish a quilt first. So I guess it will be the end of this week or next week but I will finish before the end of this month
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Thanks SulaBug...I think, now that some time has passed, I would like to try this technique again. I can see where this is really good for matching seams. Another thing I noticed--I hate triangles. I have a mental block about them. If I cut my scraps into squares or rectangles, PP'ing would work much better for me.

    Helen T. thanks for your kind words. You are right--there is no better way to learn than simply by doing. PP is interesting. I don't think I'd like to do a whole quilt with this block, but I look forward to my next PP project.

    Sorry, but I just don't enjoy paper piecing that much, so I just did a sunny block. All the nice posted blocks are beautiful though. I have alot going on right now, so needed a simple block.
