    I have a quilting design (for now its called "Star Ocean") with like half a dozen or more variations to it. I'll have it up when I get them drawn on the computer. They should be up within the week, probably after Sunday when all the "Beauty and the Beast" stuff is out of the way. I thought I'd let you guys know in advance so keep an eye out for it. ;)

    Eh, not very far. My sewing machine is still out of commission.

    I shall have them up soon! I got all the blocks drawn out and colored. I just have to put them into a repeatable pattern and put them on Photobucket.

    Okay, I got most of them up on PhotoBucket. Its kind of getting late so I don't know if I'll get them all up on here right now, but I'll at least get the original block up. I just did a 4x4 of the blocks for the quilt design just to show you how it would look repeated.

    This is the idea I originally came up with after seeing a floor design on Star Ocean 3 (hence why I'm calling it "Star Ocean"...at least until I can come up with a better name). The variations came to me when I was coloring in the design during some downtime during play practices...and I'd color in another variation and come up with another one in the process.

    Cool. Fun show.

    It's so amazing what happens when the colors are changed and the blocks are put together.

    The secondary designs are sometimes such surprises - sometimes pleasant - sometimes "interesting" - sometimes "Uh, that wasn't quite what I anticipated"

    It's helpful to be reminded to draw at least four (or more) blocks together to see what happens when they get put together.

    It was pretty good. It was our director's last show he was going to direct (this was his 50th and he always wanted to do a Disney musical) and he said he was very happy with the show. Our last performance was yesterday. That was a best for me because the other two nights I couldn't land the cartwheel-type-thing off my dance partner's back...the first show was "okay" and I fell on my butt the second show (which apparently was the show they recorded). I'm gonna miss playing the wolf...I got to jump on the Beast's back...though I got a little carried away at the last show and accidentally bit him (he didn't feel it, thanks to the amount of padding in his costume). lol. Our Beast did wonderfully. We kept on having leads having to drop out and get replaced and the last one we had to replace was Beast...two weeks before we opened. So our new guy had 5 weeks of rehearsals to catch up on, but he was amazing. I had fun, though I'm relieved I don't have to do those long hours and quick costume changes (7 in total).

    Oooh...I probably like the first of the last three...I'm calling the last three my "Joker variations". I also like the very last one, too.

    Wonderful - the base block is great but the variations are just beautiful. I can just see all the color variation possibilities popping out all over the place.
