    Hi guys, here is this weeks thread. I'm posting it now because I have a couple of questions for those of you who are ahead of me.

    It appears to me that A10 could be pieced like a log cabin block then have the triangles and melon appliqued on top...is that how ya'll did it?

    On the tri..... :shock: :?: Can you PP this with the curve or should I pp the "arcs" then just cut the curves from a template and sew those together???

    The rest look pretty straight forward if not the easiest...at least doable. :wink: :D

    I did A10 exactly as you describe. With the tri, I made up a rectangle that consisted of two coloured sections with the background triangle in between, using PP methods, for each curved section, then I appliqued them to a background triangle.

    Thanks exactly what I was wondering....thanks for the info Lesley and for posting yours...they look wonderful too! I like your idea of appliqueing to the tri...but I might be brave enough to try sewing the curve...we'll see... Thank you!

    Sharon...I was thinking about this all day...I don't think you can PP a curve like that...I don't think it would work... BUT...we can PP the arcs with that little tri between the 2 sections. :D

    Lesley, Your blocks are perfection! :)

    Is your background fabric the same weight as the batik fabric? I am curious because the background looks like a heavier weight muslin, or is it a different cream fabric? All your blocks are lovely.

    It's Kona cotton Natural, so it looks like muslin, but handles like regular quilting cotton. Washes like a dream too. I bought a bolt of it (15 yards) from Hancocks of Paducah, and I still have a few yards left on the bolt yet, with only 41 blocks left to make. But I am going to use this same cotton for all the inbetween tris, so that will use up a fair bit. I am thinking of getting a wide batik backing, perhaps from Thousands of Bolts, if not, this fabric comes in a wide width too.

    It will be the same as the latest posting on the main board, and yes, that's what I wanted, because I think all the work that goes into the tris gets lost with the coloured fabric either side of them. I am still trying to think of a nice design to quilt in those plain infill tris - Jane just did V shaped lines.

    (Like this one:http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-43342-1.htm)

    Thats something I hadn't thought about too much..that the tris would get lost..You are right though. I'll just have to see if mine "need" the extra competition on the edge when I get done. I have to admit, although I'm trying...they don't really stand up to what I'd like to see. They are getting better as we go though.

    BTW Lesley...your link has an extra ) at the end and won't go to the right page.

    Sorry Patti - here it is again,
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-43342-1.htm

    Because I decided to do plain background tris, there are one or two tris that I have altered a bit. i.e. BR1, I haven't bothered to put the narrow strips on the outside, I just extended the diagonal lines right to the edges, and I've just done the same thing with RS1 too. I'll probaby 'fix' TR7 the same way - those are ridiculously narrow strips on the edges.

    Oh Sarah and Jan...your sets look great! I've got to get started on mine. Maybe after I get home from taking the cat to the vet today.

    Sarah...I see paper behind your tri...can you tell me how you did it?

    It's raining here today in Florissant so thought I'd get my blocks done. I can honestly say BR9 and A11 were the most challenging blocks I've worked on so far. I worked the top of the triangle three times and just decided to do it the easy way.

    Great set Mama, but I found other blocks harder than this set - just goes to show how different we all are.

    Mama...great looking blocks! I am finishing up the hand sewing on my set tonight, so I'll post tomorrow. A11 didn't strike me as all that bad....Now I still have to fiddle with the top of that tri tonight though. I'm going to applique the top of that little doohickie thing down and then I'm done with it though. Overall...I thought last week was harder and next week looks lots easier to me...We're all different I guess!

    I did get the curves sewn, but I'm having a little bit of a problem getting teensy wrinkles sewn into the curve. I pin like a gazillion times...the thing is almost solid pins when I try to sew it, but I still find those little tiny wrinkles and I can't seem to get it to smooth away completely. :evil: :lol:
