    Sarah go back up and find where I posted the link for the directions to making my "Blocks". If you have a quilt block chosen then you need to go and find the directions for the "Block"(s) you need to make that quilt block.

    I will post partners on Mar. 1st. then you and your partner can exchange addresses and likes and dislikes.
    If you need any help on how to use the links or how to put the quilt block together just let me know or ask your question here and one of the ladies will be more than happy to answer your question.

    I usually leave it up to the partners as to whether you post a pic of your quilt block before your partner gets it or if you want to leave it to be a surprise for her. But I do need to know when you mail and when you recieve your quilt block.

    so the steps are:
    choose a quilt block
    find the directions for hte blocks you need to make as in Boston Blocks or Half Square Triangles HSTs or Kansas Dugout blocks etc.
    Make as many "blocks" as you need for your chosen quilt block- remember to place your colors in the right places for the design you chose. Changing where you place light and darks will change the look of the design.
    Sew the "blocks" into the quilt block.

    Yes I did! I guess I was negligent in my thank yous. This winter has been so nasty with rounds of flu- I've had multiple family members do a second round of the flu and even repeat Bronchitis- I can't keep up with it. So accept my thanks now, it was pretty!

    Hello miss hostess Rhonda is it too late to be in for March when Feb was a disaster, so sorry, but sent pm, and will make up at later date, ... i am looking for some other patterns for blocks that are NOT paper pieced, and cutting and measuring is all great, im good with points most of the time but ive been looking at lots of free patterns so if anyone wants to share im willing to accept, with smiles.. thank you
    SPREAD THE LOVE-- hug a child, share a smile, be kind, and let a loved one , and an animal know that you care,,,, it costs nothing but a minute of a day, so do not delay.

    So sorry your house is feeling under the weather. Hope you all get back to normal real soon. You are welcome! Wasn't sure about the orange. Not many people like it.
