    Great blocks Anne & QNS. Why is my block different? I followed the pattern given but mine has a square in the middle instead of the arrows all the way across. Hmmm.
    Anne, I'm hooked on baseball the way you're hooked on the olympics. Especially with the Pirates in contention for the first time in years!Name:  North Carolina Beauty & Next Door Neighbor.jpg

    Jan I like the way your block turned out with the square in the middle. Here are mine. I tried to use regular templates but didn't calculate right and had to remove some of the geese to make it work. Where there's a will there's a way without starting all over.Name:  Week 31.JPG

    I love all the blocks !!!What a difference fabric makes.... Not too many potholders this trip around....I did make some from the FWS Sampler...they are sitting in a drawer in the Calabash house...I looked and looked at North Carolina and it finally dawned on me that the center area of the pping was different from the photo in the book....I made mine like yours Jan...I think the block is balanced with the square in the middle...Now to finish sewing the sections...H.

    QNSue...I love the stories that you have with your blocks and they are so colorful too.

    Honchey...you're leading the charge this week. Good job on your blocks too. Only a few more days to be distracted by the Olympics too. Haven't they been fun and inspiring?

    Pretty block, Anne--I can see by your fabric choices how caught up you are in the Olympics! I looked at the pp pattern and it is different than the book or template pattern.

    Looks great, Mirabelle. You have your square in the center, too, with the flying geese.

    That was the way it worked out paper piecing the block, I tried to configure it the correct way but it wouldn't work. Oh well some of us have to be different

    I like the block in the middle the best. Mirabelle, the flowers just fit in the block and look like they were meant to be there. I'm looking forward to seeing your quilt. I have a feeling it will look classic.

    Jeanie, your NC block is so peaceful with the color combinations. Both blocks are well done.
