    GGal your block came up and "Oooh" was my initial reaction and then I read the posts and they all have the same reaction--The aqua draws you into the center and then bursts (a perfect word for it) out to the corners. Fantastic.
    Like you I try to trim to sizes as I go. In the long run it saves time.

    And what an array of American patriotism and some familiar fabrics showing up again!!

    I only made the north star for this weeks blocks. All blue didn't seem right for the new york block.

    This one is darlin'. I love the simplicity o' this block. It'll probably be one o' the first blocks I do when I start back makin' 'em.
    I'm still campaignin' ta git ya ta join the swap. It'd be so neat ta have another block from Iowa.

    Your blocks are wonderful as always. I did North Star, y seams and all. I made sure there were no stitches in the seam allowances and took my time and I am really pleased with 3 out of the 4 seams. #4 is fine, too.
    The fabric is my batty batik. I was originally thinking of using it for sashings and/or borders or backing but I wasn't as crazy about the fabric once I saw it in person. I must say, it really shines in this block. That tells me I like it better in small doses.

    W4Me ... Batty Batik, so perfect for your quilt .... and another fine block, for your collection!
    Maybe not for this quilt in large quantities .... but I still see it as a nice en masse fabric that would work wonderfully in a different quilt pattern!

    Your Batty North Star is beautiful. Look how many colors there are in your background fabric!

    Great job W4Me. This is very interesting watching these blocks unfold with your fabrics!

    Thank you everyone. I like how rich the bat fabric seems to be in this block. Like everyone, I have good days and bad days for piecing accuracy but I seem to be having more good days than bad. I guess it's the amount of practice I'm getting with the PC blocks.

    Now, I have to make my notes for Y seams so I'm not starting from scratch next time.

    Thanks QNS. It's amazing how well the sage seems to work no matter what I pair it with.

    Yes, QuiltE - I had tunnel vision with the bats. Amazing how we get set in an idea.
