    having completed the 365 block challenge (almost all 3" and 6" blocks) figuring these out hasn't been that hard. I did download the templates so I could measure them. I'm using my angle rulers were possible.

    Right now I've got the first ten cut and starting to sew.

    I have to admit I really don't want to do any paper piecing right now - but that is because I'm working on that "catch me if you can" quilt and that is mostly paper pieced. I switch over when the paper piecing gets to be to tedious.

    Macybaby, Saw your 365-Stunning!! I collected all the blocks, but with all my quilting stuff currently in storage, it too is on hold right now. You will find a lot of inspiration looking back through the pages of this thread, and Anael is the best leader ever!

    I've got the first 10 (by the book) complete. I've got a lot of the pale blue batik, so I'm going to use that up for the background and then move on to another pale color. I have 4-5 yards of the blue. I bought it for a border/sashing and then decided I didn't like it. Though that was after I cut it and started attaching it. So using it for this is great.

    I don't know if I'll get back to this until next weekend.

    Good morning from the UK. Lovely to see SBS busy again - even though I finished mine a while ago, I still love to see all your great blocks !
    Teen, the lady (Sharon Mastbrook ) had posted the design wall, and from it my DH sorted it out for me
    I was making my Dear Jane at that time and got the details for Sharon's design wall from the DJ group, then, for whatever reason she deleated all the details. DH then took ages to sort out webspace for my SBS and after said, please don't make another sampler quilt !!!
    Teen and Macybaby - your are both using lovely colours and so nice to see you here again Anael with all your encouragement !

    Thank you, Dottie! Your quilt is stunning and so happy to read of the results of the showings. A sampler quilt has been on my to do this for sometime. I am having a blast with these blocks.

    Anael, the book says you'd need 10 yards of beige, and that included 2.5 yard for sashing and border. So I was figuring it needed 7.5 yards for the background. I know quilts with small block like this use a lot more fabric as so much ends up in the seam allowance.

    I did one quilt that was all 1.5" squares, so for each square inch of fabric showing, you had 1.25 square inches of fabric in the seam allowances. Makes for a heavy quilt.

    Let's wait and see how much you need. I used several different fabrics as background so I have no idea how much I really needed. 7.5 yards seems a lot though..........

    Both of you-beautiful blocks and colors! When Dottie was showing us the design wall, I went ahead and created one on an Excel spreadsheet, and took pics of each block as I did them, then put them in the appropriate block on the spreadsheet. It kept me motivated at that time. I'll see if I can find it and post. Wasn't difficult. You two are doing great!

    Here it is. The solid color blocks were for me to choose fabric colors within the block to keep the variety throughout. I didn't want to end up with 5 or 6 orange blocks side by side. I do have more finished than are shown, just didn't get them in the spreadsheet.

    Laurafet......gorgeous so far. I did my spreadsheet the other night but I like that you added sashing to your design wall. I'm gonna do that too. Great idea. I'm not sure color of sashing so this will be great way to audition. I'll post as I figure it out...

    I've been cutting out pieces for blocks. I like to cut a bunch and then sew them in assembly line method.

    That's probably a more efficient way to do this. I typically don't plan these blocks .... If I have time at end of day, I just whip a couple out. When I can focus just on this project, maybe then I can cut several out at once. It's a good idea..

    I squeezed 2 more blocks in today..I was pooped today so I went for simple...

    M5 - Ohio Star
    H8 - Pinwheel

    Your blocks are fantastic. At the rate you are going, this quilt will be done in no time. Love your choice of fabrics.
