    It's a very pretty block! I like how you fussy cut the dark triangles.

    Thanks so much, I got up at 5am central time to make sure those on the west coast had it when they awoke.

    Got mine done today! Loved this block, MamaHen, I could even do that little bit of paper piecing. By chance does anyone have the software to make this an 18 1/2" block??? I've looked online and can't find it but would sure love to have it for the center of a quilt. I would gladly trade whatever? or pay you if you can do this. Just wondering.....here's my block and all 12 for this year.Name:  DSCF1715.JPG

    Jaba, Those are lovely. Your Dec. block came out great. Can you or Mamahen tell the rest of us what you did to use the 3 colors as opposed to only the 2 as the pattern calls for.
    I'm still not finished with November but it is in the process of being assembled.

    Keep looking at the blocks on the design wall and can't make up my mind what to sash the blocks with. Then have to come up with a creative border and blend it all together. Want to get it done so I'm ready for the New Year. Gees, we are starting again in January aren't we????

    Stunning! That fleur-de-lis print is so eye-catching.

    Jaba,

    I'm giving this a try, never posted a pdf before.

    This is for the four middle blocks. The grid lines should print at 1/4 inch for the dimensions to be proper.

    If this doesn't work send me your email.

    Nothing special in choosing colors, I used 4 colors, just break it down into pieces & let your color choices go. I can see where even 5 fabric colors would work.

    I've been putting different colored strips on the design wall, trying to decide on sashing for the blocks. I want them to pop right out, kind of the "stand up and be seen" factor. Anyone have some suggestions for me to try??? I must be way over thinking this, need some help her please.

    December 2013 BOM

    Finished the final block. Now hopefully I'll get a chance to start getting it together. I'm doing a quilt as you go, but I only have about 4 quilted. But I really am looking forward to the finished product so once I get started I won't quit until I'm done.

    LOVE it! Haven't looked at my fabrics yet...too much company and now I'm playing with my little grand doggie for the day! She's a pug and loves to sit on the foot pedal of my machine, so I don't do alot of stitching while she's visiting.
