    Here's my first two blocks. The Autumn Tints is actually right, the scanner just wrinkled it up and made it look wonky, LOL!

    I modified block 1 by adding two additional triangles and I didn't put block 2 in the right pattern because I liked it better this way ;-)

    It's a gray day out and my pix are reflecting that. Better color next time.

    Attic Windows was making me seasick so I altered it. I tend to do that. My apologies.

    Fabrics: Antoinette, Canning Day and an Aunt Grace solid.

    Well, crap, it posted twice! How can I delete the second one?

    Norbanaquilts, I like those colors. Are you changing because you don't the colors, or just because you like others better?

    Quiltbugs, those look great! Your points are nice.

    Fryguymoore, I love what you done with them! If I hadn't already done mine, I'd do my Attic Windows like that! I LOVE purple. It IS the color of royalty!LOL!

    Pookieookie, your alteration looks great too!

    That's one thing I love about a quilt like this. You can change a block and never know the difference.

    Roxanne, your colors are great together.

    Sewslow, what nice looking blocks! They look so clean and crisp!

    Abby Quilts has offered to do a picture tutorial on how to make Plastic templates, but as far as the block we cannot do step by step because of copyright issues. They are trying to find a way to give good tips to those who need it without violating and copyrights so no one can get in trouble.

    It is funny how one small change makes such a big difference. Both pookie and I modified Attic Windows only slightly but the difference is HUGH. I like how mine looks 'twisty,' almost like a candy wrapper. Thanks

    Looking at all these is so much fun :thumbdown: :shock:

    RW - If I paper piece mine, will my points look that awesome???? Your blocks are beautiful! I love paper piecing, I'll have to do some on the next blocks.

    JAGSW - I love your red, white and blue block #2. I would never think to even try that color conbination and it looks so pretty.

    Pookie - Your number 2 blocks is wonderful. I tried lining up lines on the Bat Wings block and it is now in the trash, that is so hard. You did an amazing job!

    I like the colors, but they are just a little too bright to go with the other ones I've made. They may end up in a lap size or doll quilt.

    Roxanne--I love your colors!

    Stefanib--beautiful blocks

    I like the paper piecing also. I plan on doing that for difficult blocks, not sure I want to do it on everything. It makes blocks so precise and crisp though...hmmmmm

    I can't wait till my husband leaves for Scout Camp in about an hour so I can get out my fabrics and start!!!

    YAY!

    Don't let anyone know that I have posted these--I may be kicked out of the slackers group--I don't know what happened, I was just looking at all the beautiful blocks and the first thing I knew-I was piecing....so on the condition that the slackers not be told that I am kind of on time here are blocks one and two....

    But really, I'm still a slacker....
