    Here is my first weeks block. I'm making them in 6" this time. Mostly jewel tones. This will be fun, because I've been on a teal kick and before that it was burgany and greens. I think before I die, I will cover the spectum of all the colors. Katie

    Beautiful Katie. You are brave doing 6 inchers. I am going to do 18 inch blocks. I have finally decided on fabric and hopefully will finish it tomorrow. I think I have a plan. I hope it works out.

    Katie it's beautiful! Your block makes me happy. I dont know if it's the color combination or what but I can't wait to see it as a quilt.

    Thanks, but how come I can't see the mistakes until it' in a picture. Maybe because I'm always sitting looking at them.

    This sounds like a lot of fun - if I can be that free minded. I'm pretty new to this and usually I need more direction, but you all made it sound like such fun and I love the blocks, so I'm gonna give it a try, got some catching up to do.
    I'll PM you for a template.
    Am I thinking right, if the template is 2 1/2", the block will be 12".
    I love miniature, but know I could never do them myself.

    If you could use a 1 1/2" template you can do these in miniature.
    It really isn't that hard to do.

    So, my first Rhonda block.--my week 1 block. I really enjoyed doing the block this way. Thought I'd practice before doing my Rhonda swap block and then on to week 2's block. The block looks better in person.

    Thanks Rhonda for doing this.

    My mis-cut pieces turned into two Christmas potholders. I don't even have a finished block to show for my efforts. But it did spur me on to do 3 more Christmas potholders with the scraps!

    Your block is beautiful. It never ceases to amaze me how the same pattern looks so different with just a change of color and placement and they all are great.

    I didn't get on here till the second week and just got my fabric for the first block, so I'm a little behind. Had to have DH decide which of the 5 or so pieces would go where. I fussed over it for hours and he decided in 5 minutes or less. Now just waiting for the template to come in the mail and I'll be on the way.

    Ok, so looks like I didn't follow the directions as far as color placement. I was working from a black & white drawing. I'm going to do the swap one with your color placement Rhonda. Amazing how the blocks can turn out differently. I did have to undo a few of the BB as I didn't realize the two strips had to be reversed for some of the BBs.

    The directions for the Blocks will be the only directions you need. Once you have learned to make the Block as in Boston Block etc then it is just a matter of sewing the Blocks into a quilt block. I show the layout so you can see how to lay the blocks and where to put the colors. That is all you need. It isn't hard at all.

    I always post the link to the Block directions for that quilt block when I post the Quilt block. So once you have learned to make that then you should be good to go.

    Are you going to try again? Can we see pictures of your potholders?
