    I've decided that I like to paper piece those. Maybe I should write up a tutorial on them to add it to your "methods" so that people can choose the one that best suits them. I used to do the star points with a ruler (Rhonda, I have 2 lap sized quilts with nothing but star points- I should photograph them to show you) and the lines on my cutting mat, but they take longer that way. I use Carol Doak's foundation paper and just print them out on my printer, but since I ran out, I am using cheap copy paper instead. The results are about the same, except the copy paper is slightly tougher to remove. I could also upload a pdf so that people could print out their own to paper piece.

    Okay, I decided to post my block. Was going to wait til she got it so it was a surprize, but I just couldn't resist!

    The lighting was not great. I decided on using oranges this time. This was a fun one to do. I was afraid that I was going to have to start over because I didn't have enough of the center color, but did a little trick. When sewing the swatches together, I sewed the contrasting color to each side on the off-set and was able to cut 2 blocks out of one! Does that make sense?

    It's pretty, and will go with some other blocks I've received from previous swaps.

    Was alittle worried about the color. Not everyone likes orange. I had stash left over from a Lady Tulip Finger that I am still trying to finish. It was my first top done completely by myself and I have fretted over it for nearly 4 years now! They are still in block form. I have been trying to decide how I want to put it together. Last night after looking through the Mini-Train Ride thread, I have decided to use the same sashing. I will have to go to JoAnn's or The Fabric Shoppe (our local fabric shop) and match material. There are 40 9x9 blocks right now. I don't like the white on white look if they were sewed together. Too much white!!

    Glad you liked the sneak peak! Hopefully the real thing will be in your mailbox Tuesday. I am really loving the blocks you have sent me. I am saving them along with the one that I do for the month to make a Rhonda's Block Quilt.
