    Well it's snowing like crazy. Blowing side ways. What happened to spring? We had 9" of the sticky heavy stuff last week end and today it started at 2pm and hasn't slowed down one bit since. Good reason to stay in and quilt I guess.

    Grandma Di, the block is just lovely. You did such a nice job with the seams and everything- it's perfect in every way! Thank you.

    Thank you sgardner and Rhonda. I really appreciate the feed back. Sometimes I'm not to confident in my color choices. It seems that I don't see colors the same as others. What I think is pink is someone elses purple or vice versa so I usually have to ask others. This one I did by myself.

    Do we have players for another go round? I'll be happy to post a sign up for May if you like. I'm fine with whatever you all want to do.

    Tracey I keep meaning to tell you there are no curves in those wings blocks. They are straight seams but using my method gives you the illusion of curves.

    When you are ready to try them you will either need my 30 degree angle template or the paper templates I came up with that takes the place of the angle cut. The paper templates are NOT paper piecing

    Oh, I guess I need a template then. Looking at the pictures it give the allusion that they are curves. Guess I have decided that WILL be the next project! Thanks Rhonda

    I missed noticing you used a directional fabric! you did a wonderful job on the directional fabs Shelley! I tend to avoid them but have used them sometimes if I really really want the look in my project.

    Luckily the fabric was cut with the grain of the pattern, otherwise I would have had to trim the fabric to "square up" the pattern with how I wanted it to display in the block. As it was, it was only off by a thread or two, so I didn't have to waste much. I knew I wanted the pattern to lay left to right, top to bottom, and with the directional being the same if I rotated it 90, once I initially squared it up, the rest was easy.
