    Nancy don't leave us, we all are at different levels of quilting. I struggled and struggled to get the blocks to measure 12 1/2 inches. And I almost gave up to, but by asking questions and trying and trying I must admit that I made it harder then it was. Now I laugh at myself. And since I stayed with the group I have learned alot. As they say try try again and you will get better. And 1 more thing you never think that your work is any good until someone says that it is great. And from what I've seen and Dotty is right you do make wonderful blocks. And I'll swap with you anytime. That is if you like teddy bears.

Isn't it great to have an opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale than a whole quilt? Still waiting for my block this month.

    Don't ever feel your stuff is less than others. All of us look forward to and appreciate the effort it takes to do them. It's not all about expertise. Part of the joy is the fresh approach "newbies" have. You only compete with yourself--we all do and that is how we grow.

    Nancy just give it time,you have to start someplace and i for one would love to swap with you. You may think your work is not as good as some,but you are wrong,beauty is in the eye of the beholder.I love it that i get a block from someone who has different ideas,every block is special,you make it just for your partner.So keep on going you will love it . :thumbup:

    Try not to follow anyone!! Just be yourself if you love to quilt then it will show through in what you quilt. toriabelle is right when she says don't compare your blocks to someone elses because everyone is uniquely different and I for one love it like that. someone may be great at applique and not so great at pieced blocks or whatever visa versa. I learned along time ago that our talents are not given to us to please us, they were given to us to please others so ....... whatever you do if it is from the heart it will be beautiful...............and the recipient will know. You better stay in Nancy I haven't traded with you yet!!!!! and I do love trying new and different things on a smaller scale it makes you go beyond your comfort zone and it surprises you sometimes.

    Here are the blocks I sent KathyN. She said she didn't think she took pictures of them. Her theme is batiks.

    She is digging out of 12 more inches of snow in her town :-( :-( :-(

    Are you crazy? I just saw the doll quilt you did with the embroidery it's beautiful. We are always our own worst critic. Keep up the good work. I look forward to trading with you.

    Thanks! Pattern is in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Collector's Edition, vol. 2. A friend gave it to me, but you can probably find it online or maybe at JoAnn's.

    Actually, just found it at this website: http://www.quiltandsewshop.com/produ...e-2/quiltmaker.

    I found it. Thank you. But I must say, yours in black and white is much prettier than the one in the mag.
