    Patti, I think that is wonderful and I donīt care that it took 14 hours because so far, my one has taken me 1 1/2 weeks and its still not done because I do a petal and then put it down, its a beast. I love the colours

    Patti, your block looks great, love the colours and your points are great too even if you hated doing them. I had a problem doing this block as I had raging toothache that week (root infection) and it took me a week to get this one done - it was almost like aversion therapy somehow, so I was really pleased to have that one behind me.

    WOW! Yes, all your points meet up just like they should! So proud of you!!!

    I'm chicken to try needleturn. I learned with freezer paper & I rely on it. I am too OCD to try needleturn as I would drive myself crazy trying to get it perfect. With the freezer paper - I can get it as perfect as possible.

    The block is beautiful! It looks like you have mastered working with the RD threads quite nicely.

    I do like it much better with the R/D on it Kathy although I still must add that little bit to the lily pad in the center.

    I learned with freezer paper too...I'm determined to do this quilt without though...LOL!

    Thanks, DeeCee. I'm glad you like it. The pattern in the center is called Swirling Tulips. This was a pattern I bought for a class I took a couple of years ago. After the class I took, it ended up in my UFO pile and I just found it again a couple of months ago. I was trying to figure if I wanted to do more blocks and make it into a quilt and then I decided to join the International Round Robin that began last September and use it for my center block for that. It has three borders on it now and I think will only get one more as one member of our group has not been heard from for months and I asked that my quilt not be sent to her for the fourth border. I would rather it come home short a border than not come home at all. I absolutely love what the gals have done with it.

    You can find the pattern at http://www.quiltsbylyn.com/patterns1.htm It's in the middle of the 9th row down. It really is a fun pattern. The only bad thing is that it calls for a special ruler.

    Yes, now that I have paid closer attention to your pic, I can see a variation in the colors, I bet in reality it is really lovely. Thanks for sharing!
