    January 1, 2013 Whirling Start 2 - Photo's.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone!!

    Here is a picture of Whirling Star 2 block, that I have made for this month. I chose to paper piece my block together, but you can use a few different ways to make your block. It was such fun to make & I hope you enjoy making your's & joining all of us for 2013.

    It does look hard, but then again, that's the point. Learn some new skills. I really like how different the blocks look in different fabrics.

    Y'all are too fast! I just found the thread! Great looking blocks. I have a little more sewing to finish my #4 Dec 2012 block & then I can pull out fabrics for this block. This year it's only going to be 1 block a month!

    I think you are may be thinking about the Quilt Along for 2013 there are 2 blocks for that one an easier one and a more challenging one. I know I am getting a little confused as I want to do all of them

    if you make the block four times and play with the arrangement of the four quadrants you can make four different blocks. if you play with the arrangements of the triangular sections of the quadrants you can make even more different blocks.

    here are some examples.

    Well Patrice show off.. had a bit of time on your hands? try it this way.. try it that way.. try it.. love it and wow if you could perfect it then it would be very easy to whip out a bunch of them in the same fabric different item each time what a quilt that would be no one would ever guess. and that would be the idea

    thanks. i do plan to use them in a quilt. also, i wanted to have enough practice to be able to answer questions for anybody who tried the traditional piecing with Y-seams. soooo ... i made twelve of them.

    not today. i had the advantage of knowing ahead of time which block SulaBug had chosen. that gave me time to play and prepare.

    Wow, Sula, you brought the heat on this one! This was a huge challenge for me. I should have labeled my colors, (whoops) because the lavender was supposed to be the other "spokes" of the whirl.

    I am a novice, novice quilter. This single block took me a good part of the afternoon. I almost didn't post this block, because I'm not happy about all the mistakes, but the whole point is to get better, right?

    Hopefully we'll get a lot more blocks posted.. love seeing the colors you guys pick out.

    Beautiful blocks, everyone. I'm glad you posted yours, frenchfryqueen, your colors are my favorite ones so far. I'm going to have to think about this one for a bit.

    This was a challenging block for me but it did end up at exactly 12 " which is a miracle in itself. I mistakenly chose to use only three colours (hope this isn't the way my whole year will head) and so the finished design looks a little lop sided, but I will keep him for my January block anyway. Thanks sulabug & patricej, and thanks to other members who have also posted their blocks. Name:  Jan 2013 finished001_edited (Small).JPG

    I finished my block today. It was I think the hardest one I'd ever done because the set-in seams was a new experience. I had given up on a block once due to set-in seams, and now I might be able to go back and actually complete it!

    UGH, This took me forever! And I had to rip it out 4 times because it didn't look right. I think the pulling, stretched out the fabric, so I'll have to do this again, but at least I'm a pro now!
