    OK -- I was not satisfied with my first block. Changed the colors a little, set up for better scant 1/4" seam, and did get better results. My block is still not exactly square, but think it could work and size is just a smidgen short if I squared it properly. Took me over 4 hours just to sew it. Cut pieces yesterday. I don't think I would want to make a whole quilt with this block unless I learned to do it much better and faster.

    I had one block done and didnt like the color combo,so now I am going to try another. PP I like ,so hoping this one is a better color combo. I dont think it's a block I would do again. I have not been quilting that long to take on such a hard block

    Ok. Here is my block. I am still such a newbie. It was hard for me. Took me just a little over an hour and those "y" seams just seemed to want to pucker. I guess I got good at taking apart and trying again. I'm my own worst critic! Name:  DSCN0530.JPG

    Hi

    I fnaly had time to do some sewing after been call to work on the Australian Bush fires that are going at the moment.

    After reading all the threads that are posted I was a bit worried about doing this block, but I found it went together easy by following the picture on the first site we where given.
    I desided to use up the fabric I had left over from the Quilt for Rosie (from quiltingboard) I have just finished just adding a bit more yellow and black, hope this works out for all blocks., rather than buy new fabric.

    Love the colors, and you did a really nice job. It would go with my block. I'm waiting for next month to see which way I'm going to go with the color scheme. But I am loving the black and white and one other color!

    After taking a couple of years off from quilting, I feel it is time to get started again! Life kept getting in the way, 3 moves in the last 18 months (2 local and 1 long distance) and two of the houses had no extra room to sew in. I now have the the choice of rooms and might move my things out to the studio instead of being in the house.
    All previously posted blocks look awesome and made me want to join in the fun!
    Anyhow, here is my block, not perfect but will do til I decide to redo it. My problem was trying to get the template to print at the right size and I didn't succeed at that. My block is only 11 1/4".

    Fun2quilt, your block looks great. If you have a problem printing make sure your scaling (on the print screen) is set to NONE- I have learned that the hard way. I have made a few other blocks and they turned out a bit too small, so I have added a border around the blocks to make them 12 1/2", one I measured wrong and had to add two small borders, WOW did that make a striking block.

    I think my block would be voted "Most Unlikely Colors!"
    I haven't been to town to buy the batiks I'd like to make a quilt with, so I just used some leftover fabric I had , and some I received in a Secret Swap here.

    I had Sula's post with her pretty block open on the sewing room computer, so her smiling face Avatar was like having someone look over my shoulder.

    I used Patrice's templates, thanks for posting those Patrice.

    I'm enjoying looking at all the beautiful blocks. I think I like the effect of the background with solid, one color blocks the best. The black and white, and black and yellows one are really striking!

    That's pretty cas..if you're using patrice's you do need the 4 fabrics like you used this time because of the different sizes on the spokes....it's very striking! I'm so enjoying each member's photos.... and have to admit it's hard to think we have another month before our next pattern!

    All the blocks are so pretty. Ya'll are such an inspiration to this newbie. My question is how do you choose such coordinating fabrics? I go to the fabric shop and am lost with all the fabrics and what to choose and what will work with each other. I guess I just don't see how to choose a "theme"? How did ya'll learn to do that?

    Thank you Thimblebug. I bought some fabric yesterday and I am going to wash it all separately, at least the black and red .... anyhow, could I use three colors if I used two for the colors that touch in the middle and a third for the rest of the block?

    Fun2Quilt, how exciting to be back to quilting! I dislike moving too, and have done it at least 40x. I think it's interesting how your block leads my eyes to see a pattern like a bigger whilrley-gig thingamajig with four inner points and four outer points. Cool! I bet I explained what I mean real well

    It is really interesting how all the fabric choices make the same pattern look so many different ways. I sure love this project.
