    I saw this block on a site, but did not see any instructions for it. It was called "Forget Me Not". Does anyone know how to make it?

    Very nice block. I did a search and I couldn't find the block or instructions. Maybe someone else will have better luck or someone with the EQ program can help. Good luck!

    It shouldn't be that hard to draft it up for yourself.

    I just did one in EQ, it's very easy to draw. Just start with your standard nine patch, and work from there.

    :-)

    Have you done any lone star quilts?

    are you willing to do y-seams?

    Bearisgray.......I have not done Y seams, but I believe I have found a way to do this in triangles.

    BlueChicken's block is cool.

    WAY easier than what I had in mind.

    Thank you BC.

    Once you see it with the lines around each piece, all the magic disappears! :-) Using eq has taught me to break each block down into segments or workable pieces. It's amazing how easy some can be to draw.

    As for the lone star... I started one the other night, pittsburghpam's "no diamond" version. It's looking stunning, if I do say so myself! lol

    Looks like a great block. Try using half square triangles for the pointy bits and squares and rectangles for the other bits. I am sure you will do a great job of it!

    Love the block as well by the way :D

    has the same lilies. I think if you use their method, you can piece it without using templates.
