    This is my first official try at a block other than the crazy style! I made a few mistakes, but it was fun trying. I'm sure they're glaring to you! But, my non-quilting folks around here are impressed. Shh. : ) It's going to be the middle of a table runner called "Christmas Tree-O." It will have 3 blocks. I have a crazy heart done that gets appliqued onto the background of another block. The 3rd one will be a pieced tree. I was fortunate to find coordinating pieces from scraps several of you sent me when I first joined! Thank you!! It really warms my heart to know you help make this possible for me. : ) I'm also sharing a pic of a gift I am working on for a friend. Crafty1, these are made with the FQ's you sent me when I gave you trims!

    Thank you all for looking and commenting! It's great to get positive feedback. : ) Crafty1 - I am slow, too - believe me. Wish I accomplished more, faster. It's a slow good time, though. Is that a new avatar? Your little doggie is sweeeeeeeeet.

    Fun, all differant shapes, colors, textures! I like it !

    I use thick plastic hexigons to keep the perfect shape for the grandmothers' garden flower. That worked great until I tried to add a binding ! What on earth!! How do you finish a quilt for the Grandmother's flower garden?? The binding really screwed up a cute quilt top !!

    I've done pinwheels, using Rhonda's cutdown method, but hadn't seen flying pinwheel...something else to maneuver. Thanks for showing us your 2010 projects. They are all great.

    StitchinMamaw, thanks for the YouTube Video. I had seen that somewhere, but forgot to Bookmark it, which I just did this time. Makes it much easier than blanket style bias that rolls.
