    It is on backorder on amazon. That's the only place I found it, too.

    Hmmm, they only had it on backorder for me. Do they like you better? Heehee, just kidding. Maybe you got the last one. Darn it.
    Oh well, I have assigned it to DD for consideration as Christmas present for dear ole Mom. Smiles and hugs.

    This is the practice block I made. I'm not sure what I'll make - maybe a table runner for the summer patriotic holidays.
    Wow, just beautiful! I ordered the book from Connecting Threads, should be here any day now! Can't wait!

    So I must be the only one that didn't get this "easy" block to work for me. :( I sewed everything right but when I opened up my block the center was kinda loose and didn't lay right. Oh well. I was really excited about this block but it just didn't work out for me. I must have done something wrong.

    My block that I did was sort of sticking up but I just pressed it and it was fine. Is there a square in the middle? And it's kind of raised?

    Mine is raised because in my little sample I just did it quickly and not want to do it permantly as I dind't want to waste my sqs..but just tried it to get the idea...you can press it flat and stitch it

    no it took me a couple of days as I was not turning it to stitch it (duh) but I watched the you tube quite a few times. My sister said it was easy and she used it for the bow tie. But once you "get it" it is easy. sew keep trying!

    Thanks!! I had trouble with it laying right when I sewed the last seam. The part that becomes the square didn't want to line up right for some reason. But I will keep trying. Thanks ladies!!

    My book came in today's mail. The instructions are very well written and the drawings are great. I can see how it would be difficult doing the block by just watching the video, there is detailed instructions on how to get the center square correct (does not look difficult). There are yardage charts for Throw, Double and King Size quilt sizes for each quilt shown in the book.

    The book shows how to make the blocks using Layer Cake, Jelly Rolls, and Charm Squares, as well as regular materials.

    I am thinking of using my scrap strips and make 10" squares to make this quilt.

    I think the book was well worth the price ($13.48 including shipping from Connecting Threads)!
