    Carrie, those batiks are gorgeous. Mine will have no theme--too many scraps to use up.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    OK, I have never joined a group like this before as I'm not a very experienced quilter and I'm like really, really slow. However, it sounds like it will be a lot of fun so I'm going to give it a go and hope I can keep-up.

    I have never attempted to do paper piecing. I keep reading about it here on the board and have been wanting to learn. Will there be instructions for doing this in the book we will be using? Also, will I need any type of supplies other than those used in normal quilting? For example, is a special type of paper required?
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I'm doing the 10 inch. I have enough issues with large pieces, I can't imagine how I would cope with the small ones. Yesterday I had to rip out one section 3 times. Sigh.

    I'm doing 2 of each block-one will be fabric I picked out, the other will be the fabric my one true love picked out. It is going to be scrappy and quite disjointed I imagine (I like florals and tile patterns, he is a bold geometric kind of guy).

    I can't wait to see everyone's pictures!!!!!!!!!!

    Welcome BETTY62. Yes, there are basic instructions on pages 9 -11 along with a list of supplies. (You will need to have the book.) If you've never paper-pieced you may want to look at some of the online tutorials too. THe more you do the better you will get at paper piecing. There are several discussions in earlier threads here that discuss supplies & directions. that you may want to read too.

    As far as the type of paper you use, there are a variety. Everyone has one they prefer. I like newsprint. I buy the "Scribble Pad" at Hobby Lobby & then cut it down (I think it's 9 X 12) to fit my printer. I've tried others but come back to the newsprint. I love the "Add 1/4" rulers.

    If you run into problems, please let us know! We are all here to encourage & support each other.

    Oh dear Karenpatrick, I hope not, at least not with our BOM blocks The HGTV Message Board is doing a BOM every year, this is the second year I'm participating. It's a lot of fun (and a lot of work!), theme this year: make it your own. Here's the link but you have to be a member to see the pictures. http://boards.hgtv.com/eve/forums/a/...2/m/7393986167

    I found the 4 -inch blocks to be a LOT harder than the 10-inch. Such teeny pieces and wee little seams! I have Carolyn McCormick's Roaring 20s book as well and it has many tiny 4-inch patterns with miniscule triangular pieces -- I'm afraid to even try them yet!

    I made a practice 4in square of the first block. I didn't really enjoy working with all the small pieces. The block turned out fine but Im thinking I will try working with the larger pieced blocks instead of my plan to make the 4 inch. I'm thinking it might actually be easier for me to work with the larger blocks. But those little blocks look so darn cute.. LOL

    I may have made a mistake when I signed up for this sew-along. It looks like it's going to be the end of the month before I even get to start on the first block. We will be gone Labor Day weekend, are having new floors installed in the living room, dining room, family room, hall and one bathroom on the 6th and 7th and are leaving for California on the 9th until the 16. When I get back from Cal. will need to clean the house from top to bottom ater all the sanding and saw dust accumulation of the new floors. What was I thinking?

    I got my first block together yesterday, but don't have enough contrast so I guess I will have to go shopping and get a lighter background fabric...bummer. I will post it on the 3rd so you can see, but know I am re-doing it.

    Well, I must be to "nerd" of the bunch here...I've been working on the 4" blocks and love how they're turning out! I will make a small quilt with these intricate little buggers! Will be gone for the weekend however, so will post a picture on Tuesday when we get back home. Have a happy Labor Day weekend everyone!

    Anael--your block looks great...very "pointy points".

    I have mine done so will post, but am definitely redoing it for more contrast! I won't get a chance to go shopping for another week though to get a better "background" fabric. Oh and the block is square I just took the picture at a funny angle for better lighting so it showed the orange/rust color a little better.

    Anael, I love love love the flowers in your block; it's a beautiful block.

    Carriem, isn't it funny while we're working on something the contrast looks great, then you step back and oops-no contrast. I love the fabrics you used though and your pp is spot on.

    Carriem, I understand what you mean redoing the block because of the contrast (or lack of it). The fabrics are gorgeous!

    Anael, your block is so striking! Love it!
    Carriem, it appears that your work is spot on and your fabrics lovely...it's always the contrast, isn't it?
    Patricia Faye, I love how you posted both blocks together and it DOES make the 10 blocks look huge! Very pretty!

    Carrie & Anael - Are they easier than the 8" PC blocks?

    Dublb, I don't think so. Looking at the foundations there are lots of pieces. I don't know about Y seams, didn't look as I don't mind doing them. But there are only 20 blocks
