    I'll move the three I've alread done to this thread so they can all be together. This is so great. I have one block turned wrong, so I have to change it, but won't bother changing the picture. We'll see how many people find it.

    It didn't jump out at me until I was cutting some 2 1/2 in strips last night and it just punched me in the face. Btw, I got your templates today, thank you so much!!!! Now I can try some star and wing blocks too. Katie

    I had one just like that I did in a hotpad. It was in a pinwheel and the one that was wrong was very apparent but not til I had made the whole thing and had quilted it and was totally done! I was selling my stuff to Joette in Kalona at the time and I took it and showed it to her. She bought it anyway and it sold!!! Either they didn't know what they were looking at or they didn't care. It looked like a glaring error to me! The pattern was broken but someone took it anyway!! LOL

    Can you see the backwards HST?

    hehehe second row left...correct. But if you wouldn't have said anything, I wouldn't have noticed. I made a test block that I was going to use for a small table topper for a lamp in my sewing room. A friend came over and wanted me to make her one. I had two blocks that were backwards. She couldn't find it, so she took that one. I made another one, with no mistakes for myself. It's really easy to do a small block backwards. I just finish cutting out week 11 Bella. I thought I had it all done until I went to lay it out. I keep forgetting that the blocks have to reverse. ie: top row blocks 3 and 4, so had to make 4 more sets of block 4. But I am saving ALL my mistakes like that and see what I can come up with some day. Maybe nothing, maybe something super special. Going to cut out another block. I like to have 2 or 3 to sew together at one time.

    No these are not in the ebooks. These are in the Sampler Quilt Along. I post 3 quilt blocks each Sunday and you can pick and choose which ones you like. I offer free templates so you can make the quilt blocks in either a 6 1/2" size or 12 1/2" size.

    Here are the links:

    It's fixed now. :) This afternoon I plan on sewing another one or two together.

    I really would like to see everyone elses blocks too! I have my sister interested in these blocks too, she's not on the board yet, but I'm nudging her with the pictures of mine and sent her the web pages. She's the one that got me into quilting 30 years ago, and now it's my turn to get her addicted to these blocks.

    I'm so glad you enjoy the quilt blocks. I have soooo much fun playing on my EQ5. I love designing probably more than any other part of quilting other than seeing the finished product.

    This Sampler is the best of both worlds for me!!
    :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I get to design and see the end result in your pics!! Love it!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    They look terrific KL!! What did you think of the processes? My mom didn't like the look of where the Kansas Dugouts stop and start between the blocks(Where the points meet). Her eye was looking for a solid line there. But that defeats the purpose of using KDs.

    Oh, I had fun with it. I thought it was going to be harder, but it wasn't. So I'll be making some more of those. And I liked the points. Tonight I cut our my first Star Point Block. If I have time tomorrow I'll be sewing it together. I do have to clean one of these days. I could be comsumed doing these blocks 24 hrs. a day. LOL But I love them.

    I think it is too obvious not to do something about it - unless you are going with the idea of one imperfect block in a quilt to satisfy the religious idea...
    I like your choice of colour.

    I had already fixed it shortly after I realized it was wrong. That would have driven me nuts. So here's the fixed block

    Ok, here are a couple more. I must slow down a little because I'm not getting my points as perfect as I'd like. The first one is my first Star Point Block Wk 10 Lavena. That was a bit challenging at first, but I got the swing of it. So I want to make more with better points. The second is from Wk 11 Bella. And the third is actually like the bottom left block on my avatar. I made that about 11 years ago with Thangles. I've always like that block so decided to make one the Rhonda way. It took half the time to make. Hope you enjoy.

    Also, I have not squared up any block. I like to wait until I actually put the sashing on.

    They all look terrific! I think you did a good job on the points. We are always our own worst critic. But I know what you mean. I strive to do the best I can but sometimes they just don't want to play nice no matter how hard I try.

    I love that you took my method and applied it to another quilt block. That is what I try to get across is my methods can be used for alot of traditional quilt blocks.

    Thanks Rhonda. I am really having fun with these. Now I'll have to get a few more cut out before I get a few more pictures up. I am also working on a block from the Fons and Porter show. I wanted to try it because they made it look so easy. NOT...then I'll see if I can do it your method. That will take me a while because I don't want to spend all my time trying to get a block together. When I know I can get several done in the same amount of time. And will probably look better.

    Thanks Bj, we are kind of neighbors. Just a two hour drive!Are their nice quilting stores in Lubbock? I don't get there very often.
