    That's a really nice table runner, our guild just had that pattern as it's tablerunner of the month. Not sure if it was a free pattern on the web or not, but very effective with those leaves in the center!

    I find the green quilt particularly handsome, it's giving me ideas for color combinations I hadn't thought of before. Very nice! :thumbup:

    Hi Sandpat,
    I'll post pictures of some of my blocks soon. I am not sure if I am happy how it is turning out. Still need to buy more fabric to get some of the points done. Imagine that? lol

    Oh My Gosh! Its lovely!!!! I'm :mrgreen: with envy. I just have to learn to do that! That is paper piecing isn't it? I'm showing my ignorance :oops: but I just love that block and the colors you chose to work with. As far as having to buy more fabric.. :wink: isn't that a requirement??? LOL!

    Hi Sandpat,
    Yes it is foundtion paper piecing. The pattern said "Sew Easy", but never doing piecing before, it was a bit trying. So I went on to another project.

    I am getting ready to continue working on it. I think I bought enough fabric to continue. :wink:

    blahel,
    The pattern that I used is Fon's and Porter's Love of Quilting - New York Beauty. It was around $7.00. It has instructions and the templates. I copied the templates and the only thing that caused a concern was that one of the copiers reduced from the origianl size, so I had make sure they copy at 100%. I bought the pattern at my local quilter shop.
