    PF beautiful blocks, really capture the spirit of the book. Love that you posted both sizes. Great job on both.

    Bev: THERE ARE NO Y SEAMS!!!!! LOL, or I wouldn't have signed up--you know my aversion to them. I think the block I did was a little easier that some of PC. I just have to get used to cutting larger pieces of fabric--I keep having to re-cut especially when it's an odd shape like a big triangle without one point. I cut too small.

    Jan, when there are odd shapes I print one extra foundation and use that as templates. That way (and thinking which way to cut) you at least don't cut too small. I cut the pieces with 1/2" seam.

    LOL Jan I do know how ya hate Y seams. I wish I had time ta do this right now. It would go great in my Brady house & would be a reminder o' my DFIL 'cause his DM was a Rosie. I never met her, she died whild DH & I were first datin'. When I do it I'll try ta git '30's prints.

    PF--I like your fabrics. Great job on both blocks. I too like how you showed them next to each other. Do you plan to make both sizes for all of the blocks?

    Bev--I thought this block went together very quickly/easily compared to some of the PC blocks...of course when we get to some with more (and smaller) pieces it might take longer. I like that she gives the measurements for cutting fabrics...I still recheck a few of them to be sure, but it takes one step out that I am doing w/my PC blocks.

    Thanks for the nice comments on my block/fabrics. I too really like the batiks, just think I need to get some fabrics that read more solid to go with my multi-colored prints. I am so excited for the shop hop in a little over a week. I am sure with stopping at 9 shops I *should* be able to find something that will work...only down side is I will be a week behind. Maybe I will get a couple done at the retreat that weekend if I get the right fabric on the way there (we are going to 5 shops before the retreat and the other 4 on our way home).

    Can't wait to see more finished blocks!!

    janRN, love the fabrics you selected for your 2 blocks. Both will make lovely quilts.

    carriem - yes, I'm going to do both sizes for all the blocks.

    I'm ready to start on the next block.

    Lyn, very pretty block. I love the cheery bright colors you used. Great job.

    Thank you all for the compliments. You're supposed to tell me which one you like better LOL to help me decide which colorway to do.

    Wow! everyone, your blocks are looking wonderful! My friend, Patti, came over Saturday and we took pictures of our blocks and are ready to show ours, too! The first picture is my scrappy version of our first square. The second picture is Patti's. This is her first attempt to paper piece and she was telling me of her boo-boo's when she brought it to show. I looked and assured her that she was standing too close to it that it was just beautiful! I hope you all think so, too!

    Lyn - I really like your purdy yellow flower. (Purdy is better than pretty!)
    JT - Your scrappy purples are lovely & tell Patty that her block is darlin'. She will be able ta meet her own expectations as she makes more blocks.

    Purl, either your block is the small one or you have a HUGE Maggie! Either way your block is striking!

    Hi everyone

    Jane- I like the Christmas block,
    Judith- your block is lovely I love the lilac and white
    Patti- well done on your first paper peiceing, your block is lovely. This was also my first time in trying paper piecing.
    Purl- Loved the way the dark blue made the light blue star stand out..

    It is very interesting how the different colours we put together make all the block look different.

    Everyone's blocks look great.
    Lyn Hut - love your colors.
    jtquilts - love the purples hues & tell Patti - no visible boo-boos. No one would ever know this was her first time paper piecing!
    Purl - your colors really POP!
