So I rooted around in my template drawer and found a pair of 6" orange peel templates for making a 12" block; it won't quite be a cathedral block, but it will be similar enough.

For the first time in my quilting life I am invoking the galloping horse rule (if you can't notice it while riding by on a galloping horse . . . )

This block is such a mess (creases, waves and bubbles everywhere -- which don't really show in the photo), and I don't really understand why, as I was careful about matching my edges and keeping my curved seam consistent.

Oh dear, joe'smom! This will definitely be a challenge for me then!

It looks nice in the picture though...as I gallop by...

Joe’s mom and DJ, thanks for thinking of me.

Yes, starting in January, I did start downloading the instructions. I was afraid that they would be taken down.

I have to admit, the last curved block is a little scary. Even looking at it concerns me….

But good for you, Joe’s mom!

I like sewing curves, so this one looks fun. Whew, what a lot of pages of directions! I like the Drunkard's Path way because I think that will give me some more choices for the fabrics. I'm glad she gave a template for it.

Joe's mom, Rather than gallop by, I just take off my reading glasses to inspect details. It works well every time to display a masterpiece! Your pattern and colors are attractive to me.

grandma's girl, I have been printing the patterns and saving digital copies. I have seen so many nice combinations of material and pattern you girls are making that I will probably want to make some combination of the BOM blocks in a whole different combination. Using prints specific to each season has been been hard for some of the patterns! I am back in the saddle sewing again this week.

Good to hear that, Duckling! I see your point about using prints specific to the season being challenging.

Joe’s Mom …... I am miserable with curves ….. but if we are riding galloping horses ….. I’ll give it a go.
