    I really like your fabric choices (including the blue).

    As I was picking out my fabrics for #18, I couldn't help but notice what a nice skull or Cylon that block could make. It is a weird one.

    Mirabelle of all the #18's I've seen, I like yours best. I've fussed over that one and agree with WVDEK-it's an odd looking block. Great job everyone-love all the different colors.

    Hi, Having grandsons playing w/toys--the block reminds me of the "transformer figures". Is this a sign that I'm spending alot of time with them????

    These are beautiful. What process did you use for 19. My points did not match very well, I used the templates.

    Oh! I just love all the blocks you've done. Not sure which pattern I like the best. And yes may the Fabric Fairy always be good to us. I just love quilting.

    The blocks are all so pretty everyone!

    Here are my blocks 17 & 18...I did change the coloring on 18, because I liked it better than what the pattern called for.

    I loved what you did with 18. Good choice. I had a difficult time with the block. To me the design looked unfinished. Great job. :thumbup:

    It looks fine. I think a lot of us struggled with this block. I never did get my points in the center to line up. I think this block just might disappear from the rest of my other blocks. :lol:

    How clever of you! Yours looks great, as does your #17.

    rwquilts - I like what you did with the placing of your fabrics on 18. It looks 'completed' and more fitting.

    Don't get me wrong ya all. I love all the blocks. Such variety.

    Thank you everyone...I too thought the color placement made it look a biy unfinished, but was hesitant to do my own thing, but am glad I braved doing it...

    You did a great job on 18. I like the pinwheel effect. Maybe you've "created" a new block and we'll name it after you. :wink:

    JeanieG .....Thank you for the compliment. I have been tracing or printing the templets on tracing paper, stitching the fabric down within the seam allowance, then cutting them out and stitching. Really helps me with the 1/4" seam allowance. Some blocks are better than others as I am realitively new to quilting. Kind of a form of paper piecing, which I really like sewing. Violet

    Yes, me too! I have never had a class on paper piecing, so don't have a clue how to do it. Our LQS closed up doors a couple of years ago (owner became ill), so no really close classes. They have a QS around 20 miles away, so may have to watch their classes. Does anyone know of a really good online video that explains how to do paper piecing? I need to try something else on these star type patterns.

    Oh yes, rwquilts, I think it looks much better the way you did it! :thumbup:
