    Hi,

    I think it would be fun to challenge all of you to make quilt blocks that you think you can't make. This will motivate all of us.

    When you make a block, please provide the link to the free pattern online so we can all enjoy it along with a picture of your finished block.

    So what blocks are your ready to make?

    One of the main ones that I was horrified of was any paper pieced block and the House BOM forced me to face that fear...UGH!
    I also have a fear of Star Blocks and took a class that taught a cool Hunter's Star Block.
    Lastly, I FINALLY forced myself to complete my first binding....whew!

    what a great idea!!! I have a folder chock full of quilt ideas -- What better way to do them, than to do just one block. I am in the middle of a lot of things just now so I will make a deadline of Aug to start doing one a week.
