    Thanks everyone...and for all you quilters that haven't tried this block yet...do it, it is so darned easy peasy but what fun too!!

    I used two packs of charms that had 50 pieces in each, with lots of different fabrics in about 6 different colourways. luckily Cathy M sent me yardage for borders etc. as I was short by 7 pieces to make up 12 blocks.
    These fabrics are absolutely gorgeous the pictures don't do the colours credit, and the fabric is so soft, a real pleasure to sew with, thanks again Cathy :D

    I love it!! Scrappy disappearing 9 patches are so much prettier than the ones only using a few colors. Those are rather boring to me but yours is awesome!

    Awwwhh you are all so kind...I haven't done much straight forward piecing, and this was good practice at matching up all the points, takes a bit to work out which way to iron left then right so the two 'lock', so each time I learn something new!!

    Wow thanks everyone for your praise...couldn't have done it without Cathy M, who sent over the fabrics. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Barnbum...you guessed right...this will be a christmas pressie for my Mum back in the U.K. they have long miserable winter days and it gets cold during the day...Mum being mum she won't put the heating on during the day as everything is so expensive to run, so I think this will look lovely in her lounge which is greens, beiges and a hint of pink - perfect to keep her snuggly while she reads :D

    I love these fabrics--so soft! I'm working on a wall hanging using these same fabrics now. It's all put together, and I'm hand quilting it. That way I get to fondle those soft fabrics while I work! Your quilt is gorgeous!
