    Cajun, love your block. Don't you love the way a color pops when used with black and white?

    Yes I do love the pop of color when using with black and white. In fact, this block was in my EQ7 block library and I played with different colors combinations; then had to play with my own fabric to perfect it. In fact I had to replace my first dark black on white choice. But I do love the way it turned out.

    Can't wait for February's block to be announced. I am putting each of my block photos into EQ so when year is up I can play with quilt layouts!

    Hugs,
    Cajun

    I made another block, this time I left the seam allowance.

    I have five colors I'm going to use for the series and I may applique one of the other colors on the black space on this one, depending on what the other blocks look like.

    Since my M.O. is to do it wrong at least once, then start over, I may need to buy more fabric.

    If you can post pictures we might be able to catch what you're doing.

    It's good to have you here.

Size:  1.82 MB I am not sure if it uploaded. But if it didn't I am trying to make one section of the four. I have three sewn and when I try to sew the other side of the triangle to finish I get a tuck in the piece that goes to the border right at the intersection of the three. Does that help? Thanks for welcoming me. I really enjoy this group.

    This block kicked my butt. I don't like paper piecing, and my template didn't print the right size for a 12" block, so I decided to figure out the rotary cutting sizes for it. That actually was the easy part. The first block, I put 1/2 the segments together wrong. And when I fixed one, the whole thing was too small. #2 went pretty well. Except looking closely I actually put some of the segments in wrong. Its all background in that area, so it doesn't really show.
    #3 is for a challenge - I think I finally got it right, but this took me almost 2 weeks to get this far.
    I'm glad this block was picked - I've wanted to make one for a while, but would have given up long ago if not for this BOM.

    The way I put inserts is to match the points as point of your print fabric to the yellow point....sew just to the seam allowance back stitch. Take off machine rearrange and sew from the center seam allowance out to the sent and press the trainable unit flat with seam allowance toward the other two pieces. Hope this make sense
    Also possibly the triangle piece is a little off in size. I found block on EQ program and rotary cut my pieces according to EQ directions. Do not give up.

    Thanks Judy. I finally got the right templates. I tried 4 times with the same results. Had given up till my neighbor figured it out for me. Made one that was great. But, I did it backwards lol. Did it again and it is ok. So... I now have 1/2 of a quadrant done!! YAH. Can't wait till tomorrow to see what the new one is.

    January BOM

    Well I finally did it. I actually have a quarter of the block done. At least I now know how to do a y seam that involves more than 2 pieces. Will have to finish the rest later.

    Thanks for the encouragement Andii! I really enjoyed it. I haven't been quilting very long, just a few months so I thought the once a month block would help. It sure has!

    try using mine. LOL

    if the photo is accurate, the problem is that you don't have the white triangle lined up correctly.
    it looks like you don't have a 1/4" seam allowance left when you get to the intersection of the three pieces.

    that's why i recommend you print my templates.
    if you line up that template to the pieces you have already cut, you will see how to trim the points so lining things up is easier.

    Hi

    I have been looking on QB site and I am not sure but I think Feb's block is on block of the month under QB block-of-the-month, February 2013 called crazy heart.

    If this is not the correct block for of the month can someone please tell me. I thought that a new block would be add to this one so we could follow everyone's blocks building into a quilt.

    Each month gets its own threads. One that shows that pattern and where to get it and the other is for discussion and pictures.
