    OK, here is our thread for round one discussion.

    You need to mail your block on or before Nov 1.

    Your center blocks will all be 24 x 24 finished, 24 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches Unfinished.

    You can do any technique you like.
    Applique, piecing, etc.

    Some ideas:

    four 12 inch blocks
    A complex block, enlarged
    One block set on point with corner setting triangles. Ill calculate the size of the on point block and repost for you.
    sixteen 6 inch blocks

    Im sure there are more... this is just to start the discussion

    Also our dearly loved Quilter's Cache has blocks that are 24". Here's the link http://www.quilterscache.com/BlocksbySizeE.html just be sure to scroll down to the bottom where the 20+ are.

    Hope I wasn't butting in...

    OK here's a picture of my center, started.

    I know this is kind of wierd, but the inspiration for this is all the dragonflys buzzing about our pond. There must be 15 different kinds. One day I sat on the dock and took pictures of as many as I could. They just dont sit still for very long...

    That is very pretty. I love the idea. Mine is taking shape, but not quite ready for the photograph stage yet.

    Will post in a while.

    Very pretty Judy!That will invite some wonderful border colors!

    I am drawing out mine. I plan on working on it while at the beach. I will do a landscape center also, probably titled "Southern Spring" or something like that. The tough thing is to remember that the design is only 24x24 and I can't make it too detailed or the pieces will get too small!

    After two days of searching pattern and block sites for inspiration, I decided I was going to have to teach myself to paper piece to make this block as special as I want it. I looked at on line sources and a book I have, practiced with scraps, practiced with the pattern and fabrics I want to use, and now am not happy with the color of one of my fabrics ... so off to JoAnn's I go! Twist my arm ...
