    I have decided that because I can't seem to stick to anything is that I will just make blocks and maybe some day put them together. My husband thinks I am a nut - but I really do like to make the blocks. Just not 12 or 15 of the same block.

    Here is the one I did today.

    And from the week before - I only get one done :)

    I agree with you, I kind of like just making the blocks too! Are you in the quilting bee? It is just swaping one block with someone every month I love it!

    Neat--they are each one very different from the next. Are you going to make a sampler quilt with them?

    If they are all the same size, you can always put them together as a sampler quilt one day.

    Cminor: I'm with you--I just like to make blocks. I keep going to different websites to get more block patterns. I must have a stack of 20-25 blocks. I can't make more than 3 of the same one like for a table runner. After 3, I get bored. I call it qadd-quilting attention deficit disorder LOL. Maybe some day I'll put them all together--maybe not.

    I don't know if I will put them togehter or not. Right now I am just having a good time with the variety! This one is 12.5 exactly - some of the others are a bit smaller so time will tell. I am noramally drawn to pink/purple, things like that. I am trying to venture out in more colors but it is slow going :)

    This one was pretty hard for me. I think I just got distracted with my husband playing with his new cell phone. But I am happy with how it turned out.

    Lovely blocks. I have a hard time looking around Quilters Cache, because I always get stuck looking at the first few, wondering how I could use them, and which fabric to use!! :-) I LOVE Marcia's blocks, and there are so many of them!!!!

    Nice job on your blocks. I like to make blocks when I'm between projects. That's why sampler quilts are a lot of fun.

    There are just a ton, and I do the same thing Jljack :) So last week I had my husband pick some out. Today I decided just to try and work my way down the list. I even sent her a picture of this one. I love looking at the examples of the other people that make the blocks to see how they used the colors.

    I think it's a great idea, I love her site, and chose some scraps that "went" together & made 2 donation quilts from misc. 12" blocks from her site, unfortunately the pictures didn't work out & I gave them away before I found out.

    Those are all beautiful blocks. Maybe they will become a sampler quilt.

    I commend you for being honest and doing one block at a time. I too find it hard to do several blocks of the same.

    I believe you have the bottom row of the Lebanon block on upside down. Is the lavendar one suppossed to be a mirror image on opposite sides? My eye is drawn to several different areas and looks a little off. I do not mean to be critical by any means, but if they need correcting, better now than when put together.

    Otherwise, you will have a lovely quilt when done. Look forward to seeing more.

    Yes bitty29 - it sure is. I was going to take it all apart, but changed my mind. It is what it is :)

    When I look at the purple and white block things look off to me too - but I don't know why. I am trying not to be so critical of my stuff as most people (other than quilters) would even notice Thanks though - had I not know, and saw it later - it would have put me over the edge!!
