    Nice blocks, I thought we didn't officially start working on these until tomorrow....am I behind again (I just got caught up!) or are you just really on top of things?

    Where are the rotary directions please?

    My blocks #17 & #18. I did rotary cut with #17 and used my new EQ7 foundation print for #18.

    Well, I've got 17 & 18. I'm not satisfied with 18 so may redo it after I see how well it plays with the other blocks when more are done with the sashing. There is a big lump in the center because of the seam allowances. I paper pieced it so couldn't press open the seams.

    Very nice blocks. I thought these were hard and I'm still not happy with my #18 (will post tomorrow). Love the fabrics you all chose.

    Do we have a super slacker club then? I'm working on block 11! :cry:

    Oh well, we just have to remember the point is to enjoy the journey. Since I'm a teacher, I will have holidays coming during the next few months where I can increase production.

    The Century of Progress block (which I've never seen before) looks like an angel to me.

    Here are my 17 & 18; I did them quite a while ago, but I recall they were both a bit difficult.

    Thanks! I like yours, too. I'm satisfied with most of my color choices of the blocks I've done so far, but when I put the quilt together, I know of at least 1 block that is very, very "iffey" and will probably need to be re-done. If I only have to re-do one, I will consider myself lucky.

    Thank you Honchey; this is the one I don't think looks right. The large dark blue area at the bottom makes it look bottom-heavy to me. Thanks-it's encouraging to get compliments.

    I have not said so until now, I think, but I sure do enjoy looking at the photos and fabric/color choices; I'm still amazed how the colors & color value can so dramatically change the look of a block. Even when I'm choosing fabrics for my own blocks, I get such a kick out of the different looks I can get just by changing fabric(s).

    Oh dear, if you girls had problems with #18 I may as well not even start it. It is a very pretty block and the ones on this thread are beautiful.

    Hi Nanjun, I thought the way EQ7 diagramed it would be easy--but it wasn't--I can't even make a potholder out of it. I used the templates on freezer paper and sewed right thru the paper but I didn't sew to the edge. I left the 1/4 " seam allowance open. Now I just have to sew the sections together the way it's pictured in the book--so far ao good.

    Nonnie, I am with you in the Super Slacker club. Oh well.

    Ummm, I don't mean to be rude, but #18 does not look right on these. Is it just me or is it that way for an over-all design using the same block? I think I will have to play with this one until I really like the final outcome. Sorry, don't mean to upset anyone.
    Irregardless, all the blocks are so neat. I love all the variations.

    It is odd-looking. I suspect it was, as you say, originally designed to be matched up to other Century of Progress blocks of the same fabrics, which would entirely change the look of it.
