    I just took at look at planned patch hood and think your revision is superior. I had drafted out the pattern earlier this week and made some sample blocks using 1-1/2 inch strips. Your combination of bright colors and different patterns is the key. When I combined two lights and two darks, I felt that the sizzle of block was absent. My friend, Rose, is going to make something for her husband whose name is Tom. We liked the "t" shapes. I was pleased with the 2 -1/2 inch strips from my stash collection for the finished eight inch block. Thanks for sharing your treasure.

    Piecefully yours,
    Kay Susan

    To Luvrazz: The pattern I found was on the site "quiltblocksgalore". It is called Planned Patchhood. Good luck.

    I've been bitten by the pattern, as well. Of course, I'll copy you on Rose's quilt. I really do think she will make something for her hubby.

    This afternoon, I purchased some fat quarters and am tempted to do something bright and cheerful. I have been playing around with sizes of the finished blocks: 8 inch; 12 inch; 14 inch.

    I am always challenged to get to the shortcuts and make the most of the yardage. One of my favorite teachers is Mary Ellen Hopkins :-) Quilting is fun and one of my passions....

    Which size blocks do you recommend? Thanks, again.

    Piecefully yours,
    Kay Susan

    I didn't have my contacts in, and read "planned PARENT-HOOD"! You gave me a good chuckle.

    To Kay Susan,
    I believe I cut my squares just about 3 1/2 inches. I just measured a block on one of my quilts and it came to 10 inches or so. You can really cut your squares any size you like. I enjoy a little bit smaller square so that I can fit more different fabrics into a 3 x 4 block lap quilt.

    To luvrazz,
    Yes. I thought that was an odd name for a block. That is part of the reason that I changed it. lol.

    Thank you for the tips. Yes, I like to keep the logs smaller so the amount of fabrics is higher and the variety of smaller logs do not overwhelm the eye. Thanks for the tips.

    I would like to make a cheery quilt as a lap quilt as part of the Linus charity projects. Our guild has been involved with lots of charity work, but this year we are limiting our work to the month of October. Several of us will make something during that time period. However, some others will also do something separately. We found out that too many charity projects throughout the calendar year burned everyone out. This year we are learning several new techniques and are sewing on our own projects.

    Piecefully yours,
    Kay Susan

    I love both your quilts.

    Here's the link to the 'Planned Patchhood" pattern at Quilter's Cache:
    http://www.quilterscache.com/P/Plann...hoodBlock.html

    She gives the final quilt dimensions depending on the size of the individual squares.

    I love the pattern and am seriously thinking about doing a top. Can you tell me do you just do it randomly or do you turn the pieces different ways to get the effect. A friend made me a pattern, I just wasn't sure how to put them together to get the same effect that you have. I'm a little slow on these things. Thanks, Libby

    I love that pattern and the quilts. Not being a "blue" person, the purple is my favorite.
