    I see some of the photos over with the instructions so thought I'd pop the link in here so none get missed. http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...n-t233747.html

    Oh my, this was tricky. All those itsy-bitsy pieces. I actually hated what I made so I talked myself into making another one. It turned out about 1/2" bigger than it is supposed to be, so I tried to fudge some seams. That didn't work very well. All those crazy points. Consequently, I'm still not happy with this, although I don't know if I can bear to make another one.

    rural... great block. Remember we'll be putting these blocks into our own quilts so when we put them all together there's some fudge factor in them..... maybe you have a month that's a little shy of the 12" and that'll even it out

    I made a substitute block, and haven't been sewing much all month. I'm feeling better today and went for the Bachelor's Puzzle block pattern I found at Quilter's Cache.

    Looking at it posted (from a distance) the four squares are what really sticks out to me. I don't like that. Hopefully, it will blend in better with the other blocks.

    Cas, very pretty .... and those squares are a pretty colour so just make sure to put some more of it in next month or in your border and it will be stunning!

    Thanks Thimblebug and Djmat! I do have some of the purple in my other blocks. I purchased all the fabric at Joanne's. Most of it is batik. I think I will maybe make some type of striped bias from all the leftover fabric for a border or sashing to pull it all together.

    Rural I like your block, I like the way the beige sort of solid looking fabric offsets the prints. I am going to have the same issue with over-size and under-size blocks and will probably lose some points too.

    Thanks Difergie. You're right. I don't think I could bear to do another one. You can also bet I won't be making a whole quilt out of these blocks. :-) The first one was awful; this one lots easier. A third would probably be a breeze, but I think I'll just learn to love this one. I'm anxious to see the final December block before I decide what I want to do with all these. I really have loved this challenge. Funny thing though--I made it even a little more of a challenge than it needed to be, what with making stupid mistakes that required the trusty seam ripper.

    Thanks thimblebug. You're right. Seems to me there may be one or two like that. :-)

    Here's my Nov. block . This was tough! Made all my HST's & when I laid everything out to assemble- aagh! Realized my HSTs were 2 1/2". SO, lots of trimming but it's done.

    Wow great fabrics...really like how the T that goes between the purple seems to just floods into the other lighter green T. Great planning . Mine is about 2/3's completed. An advanced pattern for sure

    Thanx, Judy. I looked at the picture & your message & loo & behold, I see 2 green squares that are turned wrong-The upper right & the lower left. Lucky for me they're on the outer edge & should be easy to fix.

    That's nice Joyce. I like the way you arranged the triangles so you ended up with bigger blocks of color and a larger overall pattern.

    Really I did not see the turned HST until you pointed them out..and I sure had to look hard. Happy you saw them before attaching to other blocks ...like you said easy fix.

    Mine is finished but it looks terrible. Guess I will have to find something else to fill in the space on the quilt.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

I had two horizontal sections completed ..still had a zillion1-1/2in HST and said to myself "self" let's try something else and more on...so this is the results....after a lot of frogging now On to December to finish the 2013 BOM before 2014 begins in February..

    Judy363905, I really like your block. It's much less busy. I ripped out as much as I sewed on mine but it's finally finished after the last ripping. I'll have to post that picture.
    Just wanted to tell you I like your compromise
