    You are a funny woman Nexxus. Tell your hubby when I get the time and if I can find that fabric again I'll get right on it.

    This is why I love you Tracy....lol Awesome blocks!

Due to my fuzzy math skills, they came out to only 4 inches...what to do, what to do! I know. I'll make a little border on two sides of each and I will completely break the center one because now the 9-patch squares aren't all square. Next thing I know I am impersonating Eleanor Burns and tossing that center one right over my shoulder. Now what? Don't have enough scraps of the right color to make another 9 patch. Oh, but I have the bonus leftover HST from another block. YES!!!

    I give you....Contrary Ex Wife!

    Directions. Make 4 4 1/2 inch HST. Next, cut strips 1 3/4 inch by I dunno...20 inches? Yes, there is where my math went wonk. Guessing the strips should have been 2 inches, I digress. Make the 9-patch and trim to 4 inches if needed. Sew a 1 1/2 inch strip to the two corner sides and then trim it all down to equal 4 1/2 inches. Make the center windmill with 2 1/2 inch HST. Assemble as shown with the top left and bottom right nine-patch units color strip facing inward and opposing corners color strips facing outward.

    Gosh I hope that made some sense!

    Oh and here she has grown by 3 blocks.

    Made the Corn and Beans (upper left), Card Trick (upper center), and Contrary Ex Wife (center right). Not colors I would ever normally choose, but I like it!

    Here are my Balkan Puzzle and Bridal Path. I tried the Interwoven Puzzle but it turned out awful. I may try it again to see if I can do better.

    It's interesting how different your Balkan Puzzle is than mine. Yours looks like a spinning wheel.

    Tess, they look great. The Balkan puzzle looks different because Designs used 4 colors and not 3. I did the same with my Balkan Puzzle:


    Here is my Bridal path block...I am NOT happy with the green/purple fabric. Oh well I will have to hide it somewhere in there since I am the fabric miser here, cover your eyes....

    Looking great ladies. Got distracted waiting for blocks with my sewing ADHD and started the 4-patch x's and o's from the tutorial at Missouri Star. Wow is it colorful! Also went with white for the x's...I believe I have become a white convert. Provided our house holds out with this upcoming storm, I guess I will do the next 2 blocks on the list. Happy sewing!

    Quilting here sleep is for the "other" people you should join. only one block a week you can squeeze that in. Thats what I say as I join this and that and then of course that.. yeah its only one block a week I can do that. sigh a dozen blocks a week later.. you guys know what I am talking about. For me its my mouth and fingers that get me in trouble my mouth says hey maybe and the fingers type SURE! love it! gotta get those two under control right now.

    I think your spinning wheel lol blocks look great. Are you starching the hell out of them when your done? they are so FLAT and my starch is not making things look like that. I use finish. I didnt like the way niagra makes those white spots on it if it gets too close. I know there is quilters starch but dumb question number 99 .. is it different in components or just smell? inquiring minds..

    Remake of Fancy Stripes:



    Hope y'all like it. Really getting caught up here and it feels kind of good to see this all coming together. Also thinking of putting a black sashing around each block to showcase them, not sure yet.

    Not sure about the starch, I own 2 cans of Niagra, but I have never used either.

    Sorry I'm no help there.

    Why thank you ma'am. I use the cheapest vodka I can find and water for starch. Mix about 3 parts water and 1 part vodka.

    Here is my Triple star. As long as I get my brain to think backwards and upside down things go fairly fast. I keep wanting to put the fabric on the side of the printing.

Size:  30.3 KBI think I have another day off of work tomorrow so more sewing, knitting and house work. Need to make a baby hat for a shower on Saturday. Should get at least two more of the blocks done tomorrow.

    Elisabrat, I gave up on spray starch since I dropped too many cans and broke the sprayers. ( On new full cans!) I have a good spray bottle that I mix Stay-Flo starch and water about 4-5 to 1. If I see the white flecks I just add more water and shake.

    Quilt Along

    Got bored with this bundle of fabrics, so I decided to play around w 9 bloclks by supersizing. Added triangles that went to 18". Looks great as a tablecloth. I called it BOMs Gone Wild. Going red and white for next weeks.

    Here is my double aster block and triple star block. I came to realize that a good present for a quilter is always a seam ripper. Seems like I could never have too many; i'm going through them pretty fast with this paper piecing, lol. But I love it!!
