    January 2015 Piece & Cut BOM - UPDATED

    I had the original thread deleted as I had too many mistakes in the layout picture. So we are starting over. I apologize for any inconvenience but I thought it was less confusing for people if I posted the correct pictures in a new thread.

    Another quilt block designed by Rhonda
    This is a 12 1/2" unfinished quilt block
    You can make it larger or smaller by using a different size template

    If you need a template just pm me and send me your address.
    I send the 2 1/2" out for free.

    Thank You Rhonda. I copied the instructions the first time around because I really like the quilt that come out of this block. Hopefully, I will get it started in the near future.

    Good idea definitely less confusing this way, w/ a new thread

    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.

    Is it OK for me to post pictures of my wall hanging quilt, even though I got the layout a bit wrong? I've got it on the frame being quilted now, hopefully will be finished and bound this weekend so I can get it hung up before Valentines Day gets here.

    Thanks Rhonda for more information, I saw your quilt and thought it would lovely in red,white & black. So off the the fabric shop last night to buy enough fabric (1/4 metre off each colour) to try this block and I have cut it out and placed it together to see what it would be like and it has turned out great, I will sew it all togehter this weekend and post next week. Then I will have to work out how much fabric I will need for a queen size bed.
    Thanks agian for sharing this block.

    Thanks Lyn I can't wait to see your quilt block and quilt! The pay back for me is seeing people enjoy my designs and seeing my designs come to life! I'd never have time to make all the designs I come up with so it is fun fun fun to see others make them in real life.

    I'd like to do the 2015 blocks as a sampler quilt. This block used 4 colors only. Do your plans for the balance of the 2015 blocks continue with a similar color count in each block?

    I have a teal green with a couple of coordinates, that is just begging to be used in something, but I am limited in the fabrics. Of course, I can always go shopping! Oh, wait......I am on a DO NOT BUY until the IQF in Houston starting late October. Oh, what to do? What to do? lol Isn't this the question quilters have to ask all the time?

    Thank you for the updated thread and instructions - you are the best. My block, unfortunately isn't the best, but I'm sure I'll get better in time. I think I will probably take out the center four blocks and re-do them as that is where my mistakes are the most obvious. I used a 3-1/2" template which made an 18" block.

    Oh I can think of a couple of solutions. 1) take your significant other to the fabric store and tell him what fabric you really want, (you didn't buy it, he bought it for a gift for you) 2) go w/ a good quilting friend to the fabric store and each pick out fabrics you need and buy the other person's fabric as a "gift" 3) swap fabrics you don't "need" w/ a friend who has the perfect fabrics you want to use.

    I think you've done an excellent job for the first time doing them. I like that all your points are well placed and none of them are cut off. I do wonder if you have enough room between the points and the edge for a 1/4" seam. Leaving a bit more above the point when you cut the square out will help there. There are crossed lines at the top of the template when it is on point. It is where the 1/4" lines cross. I put that above the point when I place my template. Don't look at the bottom point LOL it isn't centered at all.

    The other thing I like to suggest is to tack where your seams go. If you tack the edges together and you tack where the seams meet then everything will line up better. I sometimes get in a hurry and don't take time to tack and I always regret it.

    Oh Kassaundra..... you are a "bad" influence, but I am chuckling over your suggestions. Now....to find a friend to go shopping with.

    Rhonda - many thanks for your suggestions. I took the center four blocks out and will re-do them. The other mistakes will stay but the center ones were just too obvious. I have the triangles all cut out and will work on this at the quilting retreat at the end of February. I'll post my results after then.

    Mine is off the frame and ready to be bound. I've gotten behind in a few other things, but hope to get that done this weekend so it can be hung in the hallway for February (Valentines). I'm quite happy with the results, though it's far from perfect since it's the first quilt I did with my new longarm.

    Here it is, not too bad for the first one using my new HQ. Sure is fun, but I've got to learn my technique all over again For the very first time in machine quilting - I got some perfect examples of eyelashing LOL!! Only right at the start and then I got my tension and movement both working better.

    I sure do like the pattern. Now I'll be ready for next month!

    Very nice, I love the secondary lattice patterning

    Gorgeous!
    This one definitely is on my "to do" list. Have a few others to finish before I can start on it though.

    I love seeing how people interpret my designs. Love the pics posted and it makes me happy that you like the pattern this block creates. You can always take the blocks and turn them for more design possibilities also. Or alternate this block with a different block for more ideas.
