    Great looking block. Love your background fabric too. Loved the 1st book of "The Hunger Games" and now I'm reading the 2nd one...there are 3. I read for about an hour at bedtime. So I'm off to bed to read for a while. Have a great week.

    I read the entire book one of "The Hunger Games" yesterday. I have a bad habit of starting a book and being unable to put it down. I am waiting for book 2 from the library. I hope I get it this week as I am off for spring break. Otherwise I have to go to work with no sleep because I will stay up half the night reading. I might go see the movie this week.

    Love it, Meanmom. VERY quirky. The block, not the book because I haven't read it.

    Several people have asked for a tutorial for the convergence quilt that I made on retreat. I just posted it. I hope it makes sense to everyone. It is easy to make.

    My book finally arrived - the book of stars, not Hunger Games! I can't wait to get started, but that will have to wait until after Easter. The blocks have a LOT more pieces than I anticipated.

    LOL @ not Hunger Games. I just finished them too while in idaho. Day 1- traveling, book one. Day 2&3- visiting, book two. Day 3&4- visiting, book three. Day 4&5- visiting & travel home, new book The Hangmans Daughter. And I still managed to sew 12 Churn Dash blocks for Debs swap (had to hi-jack SIL's sewing machine), trimmed all grandma's house plants (per her specifications), went shop hopping with my BEST sister (and grabbed dinner & a movie). Got back to Texas and found grand kids from Florida at my house WITH 8 baby chicks for Papa! Cried when they left after three short days. Finely slept for two days. HaHa now I'm working on my past due stars and behind schedule DearJane blocks.

    SheriR, Sounds like you have a full and wonderful life. Four generations, if I'm counting correctly.

    I can't seem to find it. When I go to tutorials I only find 5 entries. When I do a search on convergence quilt I don't find it there either. What am I doing wrong?

    It was there yesterday because I went and looked at it but it sure isn't there now. Maybe Admin took it down.

    @ whitepine smiling shaking head yes to very happy life and yes, four generations.
    @sculpyfan, grammy of 6, and PokerDive......my subscription to the tutorial is gone as well. I searched and searched for it at the quilt store today. I read her directions over and over last night and was so excited!!! Is it a copy righted pattern or something? Maybe she can PM us the directions. It was such a nice tutorial... sooo sad

    I found out the tutorial has disappeared.I guess admin pulled it. I didn't think it was copywrited. I can snail mail it to anyone who wants it. Sorry.

    I had never heard of a convergence quilt so I just now googled it and clicked on images. WOW. They are so amazing. Maybe I'll do one someday. What a way to use a favorite fabric. Thanks for sharing meanmom. And yours is there too!

    Whitepine, they are all just beautiful. I like the way you staggered them. I may just have to steal that idea.

    Good Indiana, Vintagemotif. Makes me think of sherbert.

    Thanks for your comments everybody. I got the staggered idea from the flag....50 stars on a field of cream so you wouldn't be stealing it from me.
