Looking Good Macybaby! You did a great job of completing the top. Love this one.

Macybaby, That looks fabulous! You are one fast cookie, LOL.
Battle Axe, I hope your top does not end up as a UFO. It is a different spin on it but there is nothing wrong with that.
I wasnít sure if I would like the colors that Bonnie used but I find that I do. Not that it matches anything in the house but I like it. I do not particularity like the wonky orange strip piecing. It looks to me like I canít sew straight. (Maybe that is not too far off)

Like when the "hot model" wears a messy bun and looks adorable, and when I do the same thing everyone thinks I have the flu. lol

Macybaby, lovely finished top. Your colors are great.

I like all of the pics posted here and ideas I’v Seen posted. I especially like Siodash’s layout and may use it with the blues and tourques. I’m still undecided on the brown (her orange), pieces on the other blocks. I’ll finish up a few blocks and post pic and see what you think? I have another issue I’m dealing with, I plan to add a border or two. That may make it too large for what I had plan to use this for or enlarge to fit my king size bed. I have a plan in my head just need to check with EQ-8 to make sure my measurements will work. So EQ-8 here I go and back to squaring out some pieces from steps 1 - 5. Have fun everyone.

Macybaby, it looks really fantastic .............

Battle Axe, don't listen to that noisy UFO voice. Your top is looking good and I like the creative way you have tamed those wrong way chevrons! Chinese Keyhole is a perfect name

The red/orange blocks are finished. When I put them on my design board, my first thought was that this block would make an interesting quilt all by itself... maybe in different colors and definitely with larger pieces!

Battle Axe... I like your blue/green blocks. They look unique. This is going to be a great quilt!

Wow, lots of beautiful progress tonight!

We haven't heard from AmyBible in a while; I'm so eager to see her progress with her orange neutrals. I'll post photos when I'm done with clue 7 and the quarter star units. I love the darling little red units, but am glad we didn't have to make 200 of them.

Sue, the quilts can look pretty with just straight line, walking foot quilting. You can do it!

So many amazing quilts coming together! This is one I will do someday.

For those who are fretting over points that are not perfect - remember that almost nobody else will notice that - and also that when the top is quilted, many of those imperfections will be more difficult to find. Congratulate yourself on getting it done!
