    Whirling Star 2

    Sulabug....Here's my block. I used your foundation PP and it worked out great! I found out that if I started each piece with the triangle, it went sooooo much quicker!! This block, and the others to come, are destined for a king size quilt for my son and daughter-in-law.

    there are a few that drive me bonkers to look at.
    i feel a bit of unsewing in my immediate future. LOL

    but that's the whole point of our theme this year.
    stepping forward to new challenges.
    proving to ourselves that we can rise to those quilting challenges.

    we learn by doing.
    me? i learn by doing and re-doing and re-doing some more. LOL

    January BOM

    Hi. I just joined Quilting Board from Louisiana. This is my attempt at the January BOM. I had trouble deciding on colors but I think these will work.

    On Sunday I got on a roll with my January block. Decided to quit for the night when I cut wrong line as I was pp. An hour later I tripped on a rug in my living room and sprained my right thumb badly. That joint already has arthritis pretty bad. I won't be be sewing, writing, rotary cutting or driving for a while. Sleeping last night was touch and go all night. Yikes. But, so far I am pleased with my section that I did finish.

    sewextremeseams, I love the start to your block, I know it is going to be awesome.

    I also did a B&W block but I am not home and having a terrible time downloading pictures to my Mom's computer. She does not have WiFi and it is driving me bonkers. I think I have to head to the nearest McDonalds... Or take my chip to Walgreens and have the pictures put on a disc. Technology does not seem to be my friend this week!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Thank you for your kind comments Difergerie, Mary and Ronda. I want to sew SEW badly. May be tomorrow!

    I know how frustrating it is to be visiting and not have access to the technology we are used to.

    I am so glad I am back on the quilting board. It has been several months after my dad's passing so I am looking forward to being back. I loved the photos so far. I may have to try one myself. Thanks to everyone for sharing. Teresa

    At last! Here is my finished block. My main problem in completing the block, was picking the fabrics. Red, white, and blue? Pinks? Decided on a more 'manly' combination in case I want to give it as a gift to one of the grandkids, sons, SIL's, etc.

    I probably would never make a whole quilt using this pattern, but it was fun to do and to practice those 'Y' seams. Can't wait to see what's next!

    Welcome back, Teresa. Losing your dad is difficult but quilting is great therapy for the grieving process

    Yes I miss the crawfish and boudin. We usually get some every time we go. We try and go during crawfish season and we always come back with boudin to put in the freezer. It doesn't stay there long though. We can't help ourselves.

    Love your block. The colors are great. Where are you in LA? I am from Baton Rouge. My parents are still there. I am new to quilting. I love seeing all the blocks but I'm scared to try it. I have never paper pieced.
