    I had a large circle from the last mess up, so I cut this.
    I love the starfish in the center of your DP Cas it creates a seashell effect to the plate makes me think of coral reefs.. I love it.
    Have an awesome day!

    Yeah, I got mine done early! I used my Darling Zimmerman ruler & so mine has 20 blades. I cut my square large so I haven't squared it up yet.

    Just after I saw your message I went to work on another project & there was the rest of the FQ & it had the selvage on it. It's by Michael Miller & called "Sewing Stuff"

    Thank you now I can look for it up here. I get to go shopping next Friday at some new quilt shops. Now I have something to reference. I might be able to find some remnants.

    I had the same problem last week, I cleaned up cookies, history, virus scan, and it started working again, what made it not work in the first place is still a mystery. Was ready to call the Geek Squad.

    June 2013 BOM

    I've had my block done, but was having computer problems, so didn't get to see everyone's blocks until today. They are all great. I decided to start quilting as I go. But instead of going back and doing them all from the start, I'll just do two for the months left. And in no particular order. I'm learning to FMQ, so I'm excited about these.
    So here is my June, and my Feb.

    Maybe you need to down size the picture again.. Only reason I can think of for it not to upload to the site is the file being too large or the way the file is being saved is not compatible with the QB sites format.. Hmmm a real puzzle.
    Have an awesome day!

    Hi all, just returned from our trip to Alaska on Thursday and was anxious to catch up, I was sorry to hear of the hurdles with this block. So I went to JoAnns and purchased the Omnigrid Easy Pointed Dresden Templates...half price sale on quilting notions. Block came out correct side and fit together nicely...16 blades. Just finished up this morning, here is my pic

    Your DP is Beautiful..
    Mirror Image... Is that the name of the technique... Haha.. Now I know what to call what I have been doing. I just love all the different DP's one can achieve using this method.
    Have an awesome day!

    All are beautiful. I am not in this but, since I am making a DP quilt. I thought I would take a look. I too made large block trying to figure out what size to make. I used a fan ruler and no instructions for DP. I may make another quilt with big ones or put it on the back. I will decide later.

    I love this block thimblebug6000. It is so different than those I have seen using DP technique. DH says it looks something floating in space. Guess his opinion matches the others comments. Thanks for sharing

    I will just have to use different fabric, I really did like the background fabric but I only have enough left to make a matching Pillow, so I will have to use something else.
    Oh wow this looks like a flower in a field. Love it!

    Obviously, this is not quilted yet. I used Elmer's to tack down the edges and used Heat n Bond for the center.

    I think it looks really different with the center. Look at it like the center of a flower. It's unique and very eye appealing.

    Thanks Jenniky yeah i agree it if fun to see what effect you get doing that. I learned this in a quilting class you put two mirrors together and position them the size of your blade and place it in different spot on your material and it gives you a preview of what your block would look like then you use a clear template and trace part of the pattern on the template than use the tracing to help line up each blade so they are exactly alike.
