But I like what I have done so far.
    I say, do what works, the block comes out looking the same with the same dimensions, and it looks good, and the main thing is you are happy with it, that is the end result and that is what counts. Wonder how many times I would end up in jail as a habitual offender with my non police like attitude. Maybe the fine would be hard labor in a quilt shop, lol.

    Ladies, your blocks are so pretty. Sauki, glad to see you post again, missed you. Jayne, the black & gray will make a stunning quilt. Libster, I love your Avatar block, did you make it? Neat pattern.

    Here are my blocks - keep forgetting to post..

    Love these blocks, such a different look. Was just realizing as I read down thru, I don't get to read everything as its posted so my reading is behind. And I answer some of the quotes as I see them, then go back and read on and find what I have to say has already been said by many, I am just behind in my "2 cents". Now I understand where that saying comes from. And see Just Jan, I don't need a chemo brain to sound like one. By the way, Kudos to you for all you are going thru and keeping your humor, you are enjoyable to listen to.

    I like the idea of shortcuts everyone mentions, when I try it I have a problem with the sizes coming out right, so still a lot of learning on my stuff. Love all the blocks, now that I am caught up on the reading, I will do what I can to catch up on the blocks, lol. Great job everyone.

Other than one missing point, I'm satisfied and excited to make more! I'm thinking I'm going to use all shades of blue and make a "picnic" blanked. Maybe add some red cornerstones in the sashing... but seeing how I only have one block so far, I have plenty of time to think about that!!

    I usually use squares also !! I think I am going to make mine using all HST..........It should work-- right ??!!!

    JustJan I can empathize with you. My daughter has Lupus and calls it her Lupus Brain Fog !!!! She also just laughs at her herself. It is good to have a sense of humor !!
    JayneW-pippa-Libster-Sauki1-Oksewnsew and JustJan-- awesome blocks !! I will get to mine tomorrow at Laughter In The Loft at my LQS !! Looking forward to seeing more blocks as they are posted!!

    Hello everyone,

    I have decided to jump into the deep end. I have been lurking and following each months thread and today I finally printed out all the patterns. This should be very good for improving my skills as I have only made 3 quilts. What you all have been doing since the start is just fabulous! Just be ready for some rookie questions! LOL

    Dad is still hanging on. But he so, so confused. They think the cancer is spreading and now I have to stay up with him all night and my Aunt usually stays with him so I can sleep. But today his little brother had open heart surgery today and she wanted to be with my Aunt and uncle. Surgery went well, just too much at one time but we will survive it. I quit swapping for a bit because he keeps me busy at night so I thought I would catch up with this when I have the time. But tonight just too tired didn't get much sleep yesterday because my Aunt wasn't here.

    Lv2sew2011; My prayers are with you.

    I joined this month. During the Virtual Quilt Weekend got July sqs finished. And tonight got brave and just tried something to upload pictures from camera to computer. Don't know how to do anything with them. Think I need another program. Name:  DSCN2611.JPG

    Hi everyone! I love this months blocks! It's so much fun to see everyone sewing! We are back from Yellowstone (what an amazing place), now I'm working on blocks before I visit my Mom in August! Hopefully I'll have some pictures of my blocks for you this weekend.
