    Sharon is out and about frolicking and cavorting in celebration of a wedding. She asked me to post her pick.

    Pinwheel Star: http://mccallsquilting.com/qb/pattern_1199/

    it's a wonderful block. the instructions are very clear and easy to follow.

    for those checking out our Blocks of the Month for the first time:
    - you don't have to be on a list to play along. the list is of the quilters who've asked for a turn picking a block. if you'd like to be added, send a PM to Boo.
    - there is absolutely no charge. you can keep or do as you please with any of the blocks you make.
    - you can make all the blocks or just the ones you like. we all love seeing photos of each others' blocks, but you don't have to post if you don't want to.
    - there are only a few rules:
    1. Have Fun
    2. Don't stress over deadlines. there are none.
    3. Have Fun
    4. The instructions are a guide. put your blocks together in any size, using any method that works for you
    5. HAVE LOTS AND LOTS OF FUN!!!

    The file i've attached is just a list of all the blocks since March (when we started).

    kathy, i don't have a clue to the "insert disk" thing, unless you're accidentally trying to save it to a floppy disk and don't have one in the drive.

    ruth, the new block is on page 2 of the Beauties file. however, i was SUPPOSED to have included the link in the first post.

    apparently everything i tried to do this morning i did wrong, wrong, wrong.

    as soon as i finishe writing this, i will add the link.

    i am sorry, sorry, sorry and really, really, sorry to have cause so much confusion. from now on ... not posting anything til i've had at least 2 cups of morning coffee. :oops:

    Okay, here is my block. I had to do it fast and get it out ofthe way, so I can continue with my quilt. I really hate piecing points, I rip out so much it is a wonder it survives. But I must say I get better after each one so I will keep struggling.

    Beautifull job. Love red, white and blue theme. I saw your fab with it blown up. You got a name for it so I can maybe find it here.

    Debbie, I buy most of my fabric at Wal-Mart, and sometimes Joann's when I have a coupon.

    First Stop WalMart
    2d Stop Hancock's
    3d Stop ... Dunno. Joann's I guess, then online

    Mary, for having done so quickly something you don't like you sure did turn out a really gorgeous block. you don't give yourself enough credit.

    :P

    Well I have to say I have learned a lot from all of you seasoned quilters and you have encouraged me to keep trying.

    I have always been a perfectionist and not happy until whatever I was doing was perfect. I would keep at it until it was perfect. But now that I am old and tired I let a lot of things slide.

    I am amazed that I can sew at all. The main thing I have learned is I have to follow the instructions to a T and try to be careful about cutting and pressing.
    Oh did I mention I am very impatient and like to get things done fast.
    A big part of my problem, but if I take my time and follow instructions, I do ok.
    I just love this quilting board, everyone is so knowledgeable and very willing to help solve problem areas. I have learned a lot just reading answers to other peoples questions.

    Many thanks to all you seasoned artists willing to share with us newbies.

    Mary

    I call that a good team effort. We would be sunk around here without each other. Patrice comes to the rescue more that you all know. She saved my bacon as I was sick as a dog when it was my time to post. She got all of the patterns ready for posting and did a great job. She's the best. :wink:

    I just found out our local Wal-Mart is one of the stores eliminating the craft section. They are already done to nothing usable, and will not be getting any more fabric in. The worst part -- they won't even be reducing the fabric in stock, it will be shipped to another Wal-Mart.
