    Here's my practice block I just made tonight. It isn't ironed yet. These are easy.

    Thanks BC and Pam!!

    Thanks everyone.

    BC I just looked at the pic to assemble it, made a wild guess. I did use the templates tho to cut it out. It was fun to make. now to figure out what to do with more of them. :lol:

    That is great! I love the red and the lace.

    It is surprisingly easy, isn't it? Just a few pieces. Takes more time to do the embellishments, and decide on them, than it does to sew the block together. :-)

    I really have to admire the quilters who have the gift of embellishing. I do imagine it would take a great deal of time, and you are to be commended for doing that kind of detail work. Not my cup of tea, though I admire it greatly. It just seems more creative than I was endowed with.

    It's easy dude... just looks complicated! :-) Just take a piece of lace, or ribbon, and sew it onto the piece before you put the block together. That's it. :-)

    I know! Make a bunch of dresses, make some patchwork, some striped, some polka dot, some casual and some formal, and call it "fashion show".

    Wait a minute, this is your design... :oops: :D

    I'm sorry - I thought Blue pieced them over paper templates? I hadn't got around to looking at the patterns until now. I guess you can just piece them the ordinary way? The red dress looks great anyway! :D
