    Wow, awesome blocks. Jan I love your fabric, it is so pretty, when you quilt is finished I will gladly take it off your hands for you ;-)

    I love the patriotic themed block. It is very nice the way it is but you can always make another to see what you would like best. I am trying to picture in my mind how it would look with those two colors swapped.

    My favorite colors are brights, like neon brights, then black and whites and then patriotic. Seriously most of the fabric I have fit into those 3 categories, well that and whimsical, I love whimsy too!

    Thank you Mary. I really like your black and white block too. You just can not beat black and white quilt blocks

    sorry the lighting is so bad at the condo near the base, too much to drag my Ott light around & so little space. Hand quilting DGD's Fairy quilt due in mid August. Funny, this small living room even holds the twin quilt frame but have to go through the small foyer & kitchen to get to the other side of the room! Hubby was cooking something yummie & laughed at me darting through the kitchen constantly when I was mounting the quilt. New job is real work, but I like it a lot & they even pay me! Preparing my fabric wish list!!!!

    Here's my July block. I may make it again when I get home from 2 week vacation. I like the colors but have a new piecing foot -1 with 1/4" on either side, and my block came out a little too large so I need to fine tune my seam allowance

    I love your color combo. It very eye catching and I see your block is very well made. Why would you redo?

    Well, I sure changed this one! Amazing how poor color choices changed the whole pattern. Oh well, at least I have a big, pretty X.

    cas, I like your, it is very pretty. I saw a block the other day when I was perusing the internet and thought, boy that looks familiar! It was the Blackford's Beauty, but had a different name. The color combinations might have been a little different also, but the pieces were the same. I can't remember what it was called now. But I guess it is pretty common to have a block called by more than one name.

    CAS49OR I love your block and not just because it's purple. I think the center x looks very 3D. Looks almost like crystals coming out of a geode. The black really sets it off.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Thank you Mary and DD. It is hard to see now but I was going for a center star with my multi-colored batik in the middle. The purple squares on the corner made it into an X. That seemingly out of place yellow triangle is the same fabric.

    All of my blocks have had sort of a 3-D appearance that looks real cool online.

    Some things I learned doing this block?

    Read through the entire directions before starting -- I was efficiently working along, putting the little squares/long rectangles together when I noticed after doing one side of all 8 the diagonal changes on four of them.

    Different weight fabrics can really make it hard to match seams and points! I don't like using starch and can't find unscented fabric stiffener, so next time I'm going to try to get nicer fabric. My black is nice and thick but the multi is really flimsy.

    I also learned I have a lot more patience than when I was younger. I took many seams apart and re-sewed them to make everything match up better. When I was young the "P" word was not in my vocabulary!

    I love the blocks you all are doing. I think your large yellow/black quilt is going to be striking DJ, I like the second bonus block, very interesting!

    Roma, I really like that block, it is so pretty. Is the dark color blue or black, it is really hard to tell, but still a very striking block.

    You're welcome Roma! Yes, OR, I live south of Eugene. I wish I was closer to Oregon City, I could buy a Groupon for a stand up paddleboard outing.

    What do you need to re-do on the Block?

    It is kind of confusing. When you click the icon third from the right (in the menu right above this window you are posting a message in after you click "post quick reply") to add a picture a window comes up. Sometimes the tab is set "from a URL". Click the tab to the left that states "from computer" then "choose file". Knowing where you kept the picture you want to upload, click on it. Then click "upload file/s"

    You also have to make sure you resize your picture and make it smaller. That get's me every time.
