    OK - Here it is! There are a couple that have itchy britches! haha - Have fun with it - remember, any combination of fabrics that YOU like between 2 and 20 BUT______This time, make 3 blocks, same pattern as above, just flip-flop and rearrange the colors. We will all be anxious to see what you have come up with! :thumbup:

    Thanks for the site for free patterns! I am going to try this challenge. It should be fun to see how the choice of colors affects the outcome.

    Wow, time to go pick out fabrics and get busy. I guess I should first get the hubby out the door to go to work so I can quilt in piece! And I need his computer to print out the pattern LOL :)

    Ta Tah!!!! Here is my FIRST block. Notice I used 2 colors only, but put it on a diagonal which changes it up a bit.

    This is the 2nd one which a changed from pink to a coordinating floral. Also the blocks are a little flip flopped. ALL the blocks in the examples are half square triangles, but when lights are changed to darks and maybe rearranged, it looks like an entire different block.

    The 3rd - a darker color was added and flipped a few more colors. You know, alot of times, you can identify a certain block, and when the designer changes JUST the lights/darks, they give it an entire different name!

    Yeah, like I would call this "ticks over Missouri!"

    OH WOW!! It looks like there is a cross in the background! I LOVE it and I love the colors you chose. Ys, just 1 is OK, but you seem to be an adventurous sort and thought you MIGHT like to challenge yourself. It is great and thanks for submitting, Miss----"San Joaquin"????

    Yep, out here in the valley cows, cotton, corn, cheese, etc .... don't mind the adventure, just the stack of ufo's, I've promised myself I'd get back to.
    :oops:
    picked up some fab, that of course didn't need, so I've challenged myself to finish 3 ufo's before I start on it. (not counting this)
