This thing is really getting big, it would not fit on my display wall. I am still enjoying doing my 2 blocks a week. Last night I printed out the templates for March blocks. We are back to 8" blocks, the last round was 6".

JeanieG, That's totally amazing. It really does look big. Can't wait to see the top finished

Thank you Caley - I wish more people were working on this challenge like in the "olden" days. It is so much more fun if working with a group and showing the blocks that we have done weekly!

I'd like to try someday. I don't know anything about paper piecing. And I doubt I have enough variety of fabric to do something with so many colors and patterns.

Guess I need to purchase the book so that I have the patterns and instructions on how to put it together.. Unless there's a resource online showing all of that.

Jeanie!! Wow, this is great!!! In reply to your other post, I too wish there were more who were doing this...including me! I still am not able to do the paper piecing needed for these blocks. I have done a few simple blocks, but the fine cutting needed to trim for these blocks is too much yet.

I just watched a YouTube video about paper piecing. I think I understand all about how to put something together now. Now I will take it to the practical application, and find something to piece together.

Thanks for this thread. It has me wanting to try a new way of putting a block together.

This is the tutorial I watched when learning to Paper Piece. It is NOT my favorite type of quilting technique!

Hello everyone, I am back! Finally got logged on after several months of trying....and trying....and trying. Not been active in the sewing room, guilty of reading too much. Love the way the center is going, and have started the outer row for the center. Physicals therapy has me moving better and right hip has quit hurting. Cannot believe how much better I feel. Spring is here, but long johns are still necessary every other day. Sewing is better option than spring cleaning!
