    Ok, finished my 3rd week, just not enough time to do the extra ones will have to save them for later.

    I photographed all 3 of each together, they are looking good if I do say so myself

Then I can end up with 2 quilts....that is, as long as I can work on them without getting too far behind throughout the year.
    You be sure and take care of yourself.

    Three more done today. Did the Balkan Puzzle and the paper pieced Triple Star. Broke my first Balkan Puzzle (sewed wrong way), anyway made a new one and wound up with a bunch of leftover triangles so made the little zigzag because I hate wasting material!

    Starting to look quite "circus." I think a 2-year-old girl will love it!

    They are all wonderful, i love seeing the different interpretations, they are same pattern, yet so different. I will catch up, hopefully, or will just have to settle for watching. Too many irons in the fire. Story of my life, but this time i really piled it up. Stressing over work, need to concentrate there for a while. Still need my nightly fix of the QB.

    Love what everyone has come up with!

    My sewing machine, Luna Lovegood, (the quirky, beat-of-your-own-drum girl from Harry Potter) is at the doctor's.

    It's most likely a timing issue, but I can't wait to get it back. I have really missed spending my Saturday catching up on these blocks. From the looks of last week's challenge, I should be cutting out pieces while I wait for her.

    Who all is doing quilt-as-you-go with their blocks?

    Here is my Broken Wheel and my puzzle. I did use 2 shades of dark blue for the puzzle. They were mostly square at the end. I think I am getting more comfortable with putting the corner squares on. My first ones looked like trapezoids!

    I am going to try the harder blocks this week, I need to balance my time at the sewing machine with time spent with the DH. When it get's this cold up here he can't go play in his "Man Cave" That's when I get my knitting done since he likes me to keep him company. It's sweet but some times frustrating, when I am not doing the project I really want to do.

    grandme so sorry to hear about your trip to icu. that is horrible. i am however glad to hear your doing better. I take medication for lower blood pressure also. its not a picnic for sure. sewing soon I will hope for you and those who are over busy or worse not doing well. this is a lucky block club as well its do it if you can, when you can and the rest of the time its wonderful to have you here chatting it up. how grand is that? I plan to do one block extra this week. I had to get started on a wall hanging and also finish mug rugs. completing things so I am free to work on this and my quilt. one day at a time

    latest block

    Got my block done, one of them at least for this freebie week. I have tried three times, hoping the third was charm, just didn't turn out that way. I definately don't think paper piecing is in my future. Right now it's just not sinking in as something I want to do bad enough I guess. I love the look of it but will have to settle for window shopping. Any block I can cut out the pieces and sew is perfect, don't even mind those set in seams.Name:  DSCF1055.JPG

    Thanks dedemac, this 1 is the just "cut the pieces and sew together" don't have a problem with them, knock on wood at least so far. The paper piece one is in a million pieces in the trash can. Like your avatar by the way, is that a block or a full quilt?

    No it is about 2ft square, I am using it as practice for machine quilting which I have never done. It started as a replacement block for the Craftsy 2012 BOM and it just kinda morphed. All the fabrics except the blacks are non cottons. I used a mesh fabric I found in my stash to use as a backer for a mock paper piece since I needed it to stay. I am trying to get rid of 30 years of sewing scraps. Very little of what I have is normal quilting stuff. So all my blocks will be a little different. I loved the way the colors just keep coming at me. One of these days I will get it quilted, when I get the nerve up. Thank you

    Tesspug - thank you and I'm trying but it's hard. Well, he came home from the hospital yesterday and already not following the plan. This gets me very frustrated which, in turn, makes my fibromyalgia flare up. Now, with the stress, I think my TMJ is rearing its ugly head. My quilting (or any kind of sewing) helps distract me from what bothers me, physical and emotional so need to keep trying to find "me" time.

    Designed a new block today if anyone interested in trying it. Got antsy waiting for Friday and decided to do 3 random blocks on my own. One that I chose was called Contrary Wife. Super simple squares and HST. I found the squares to be too plain so decided to make them into 9-patch squares which should have been 4 1/2 inches when completed. 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!
