    Here is cutting/sewing directions for the easy block if you prefer not to paper piece. I personally am not a fan, but in the excitement of picking blocks friday night, the fact this was paper pieced was overlooked. The block if you look closely at it is just squares, rectangles and HST's.

    Ok, so here is my interpretation of the block:

    1. It is 12 ins finished, with 3 wide x 3 high, that would make the finished blocks 4ins square. Which would make each block 4.5ins to cut.
    2. now lets name them Blocks 1 - 9, starting on first row, left to right.

    so: 1 2 3
    4 5 6
    7 8 9

    3. The block is symmetric, therefore, mini-blocks 1, 3, 7 and 9 are the same; 2, 4, 6, and 8 are the same. and then there is 5. So there are only 3 types of mini-blocks

    4. Ok, so you have the corner mini-blocks, which if you look are basically HST with a HST in the corner.
    the middle mini-blocks are 2 equal rectangles.
    the center is a square.
    5. So, now we have broken down what we are looking at, what each block contains and that they are really designs we have done over and over.
    6. Here is the cutting sizes (either print out or hand draw a sample of the blocks with the colors you are to be using for each block. just follow the picture)
    mini-block 5 (center) = cut 4.5 in square
    mini-blocks 2,4,6,8 (middle sides) = cut 2 rectangles, 4.5ins tall by 2.5ins and sew them along the long side
    mini-blocks 1,3,7,9 (corner squares) = there are 3 pieces to this one, so I will break it down a little more for ease
    a. outer corner block = cut 2 4.5in squares and then cut along one diagonal to make 4 HST's
    b. inner corner block = cut 2 4.5in squares and then cut along BOTH diagonals to make 8 HST's
    c. inner HST = cut 4 2.5in squares and then cut along one diagonal to make 8 HST's, recommend you do 2 of 2 different fabrics, then you would sew them into squares.
    7. Now lets sew corner squares together.
    a. first sew the 2.5in HST together,
    b. then sew the short side of the smaller HSTs you made in part b above to the just finished 2.5in square in part A. Refer to the diagram as to orientation of those short sides. finished it should be a HST.
    c. now sew that HST to the 4.5in HST you cut earlier.
    8. At this point you have all the pieces, basically 9 4.5in squares. Now it is just a 9 patch.
    9. If you are worried about sizing, just cut everything 0.5ins bigger and then trim down to a 4.5ins square at the end, should work.

    If anyone would prefer a more "quilters cache" type version of this with diagrams etc. Just PM me and I will hammer it out and send it to ya.

    Hope this helps remember we are expanding our skills and trying new things There are never any failures, just learning experiences!

    Hi GirlLivingForJesus

    This is how I taught myself to paper piece. When I started last year to make Quilt for Rosie, also on Quilting Board site. I found that i was much easier to do but it is fiddley having to get the paper pieces ready, then cutting the fabric, thenoff course getting the paper off. But I enjoy doing this it keeps me sewing straighter.

    Hope this helps, you just have to practice and follower the numbers.

    Dotty, dont panic! Ive not paper pieced, and it scares the crap out of me! LOL look at the 4 small blocks that seem to make up the pattern. This block could be made using squares and half square triangles if anyone wants help calculating the cuts, let me know.

    Hi

    I am playing catch up I have finished three block and one from another January quilt along. All to go in the same quilt. I am using up fabric that I had left over from the last quilt I done call Quilt for Rosie which was more white base this one I am trying to make more yellow and black. So I keep makeing the blocks till I run out of fabric. I am thinking of changing Broken wheel to have more of the brighter yellow on the outer squares.

    Lyn, The blocks look great, they have that feeling of summer. Which is great since we just had another snow storm.

    The FREE Craftsy.com BOM is still online and excellent. The October block is paper piecing. I think this teacher is so good, I bought her 2013 class. Very inexpensive and very good.

    Of course I made it harder on my self since I really hate to waste fabric. I had some HST left overs that I cut to the correct size since I liked the colors then worked my way out from there to the corners. I still have some problems sewing the triangles, I think it is sewing on the bias? I'm more of a with the grain person. I enjoyed this one, I'm going to try the Double Aster next need to practice with triangles and bias!

    Thanks Rosie.

    Got last two done...Carolyn's Star was a hair puller. Also, I didn't have access to my printer, so worked out the Wood Block block with my fuzzy math skills so didn't need to PP.

    I love that whimsicle quilt. I think you must have some seriously lovely scraps kind of wild amish..fun will look so pretty and fresh when quilted. like summertime. thats what it looks like.. summertime, lemonaide, pinwheels swimming in the river laying in the sun that kind of summertime.. yeah it whimisicle if it can bring images of delight with it I am putting my christmas quilt on hold. I couldnt do the blocks last week and now this week is even more jacked so I will have to follow along visually for now and come back to this when life slows down a tad. I won't quit though. 8 blocks into it I am halfway to my dream holiday quilt. better than back at the starting line I think.

    I am loving the colors. Brat is right, summertime fun is what your colors remind me of, Tracy. Light and breezy. And Lynda, I also would like to see all of your together. I love the teal and brown, one of my favorite combinations.
    Hey, sis, where are you!!?
