    I have some with a grid like that from Joanns. Not that big but it was in the Fons and Porter section.

    Pretty blocks and the quilts are beautiful. Are you going to piece your blocks into a beautiful quilt like one of those?

    Actually, my blocks don't look so good. I'm going to finish them and learn what I can and call it a crazy quilt and then make another one that actually looks amazing. LOL

    The one on the right is mine. Let's just say I learned a lot.

    I'm wondering. When you take a class like that, is it then okay for you to post on here what you learned? I mean, to do a little turtorial? I understand about designs or patterns that are printed ( copyright) but I learned to sew from a teacher,(highschool) and we had books that showed how -to pictures and printed instructions. Does that mean that I can never teach another person those same methods, even if it means sketching out illustrations or printing out my directions for them? If you arent using said book and copying word for word, just doing what you remember of the instructions, why wouldn't that be allowed? Isn"t this how we all teach others?

    My husband put up a wall for me to use made from sheets of plywood, covered with eggcrate bedpadding (wrong side out) and covered with a flannel sheet. It was perfect already but I found the grid at JFS and now it really is even more helpful. Price was about $19 and it's the size of a full size quilt. You easily could purchase 2 and adapt it to make it bigger. I really do love mine. And I love some of the quilts pictured here! My "Hope to Do List" is getting longer and longer and longer. HaHa

    awesome class! love your block colors, lime green is one of my favorite colors (next to red) hum, never thought to try the two together.
    I will be putting the teacher on my wish list.

    This was a packed, very fast-paced class, way too much for a tutorial here, sorry. Plus, Margaret does this to make money, I'm sure.

    Everyone looks like they had so much fun. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us. By the way, I love your blocks. That is the kind of class I like to go to. One afternoon and you see results.
