Block homework is done - camera and photo posting are not playing nice. I struggled with getting the tight placement with my colors for the market block, but finally after the second try got them right. The Kentucky bl9ck went yogether quickly.

WOW Joan - BRILLIANT!!!!!! You are definitely on a roll :) :)

Looking forward to seeing others.

I can't believe how busy I got with quilting for others. If I had known I would have just purchased the ruler and the book. Life is moving forward and I know one day I will get to it. Courtney wants me to make a quilt using blocks so maybe this is the one using her fabrics. Christmas she said? Ahhhhhh!!!!!

Keep stitching onwards and upwards!!!!!

During my teacher training this block kick my tush too. Being left handed, I put my dots in the wrong places. I teased El that I would be the first one to flunk out of teacher training at QIAD! I passed! I need to get started on my blick.

So glad I am not the only one..You guys are so smart I should have made a practice block....something to think about when you are doing a quilt from a kit....I will do that from now on. I got the block to lay flat but my seam allowances are off but it is what it is

Succeeded? I guess when you screw up in front of El - you remember how to do this block! Love that it is oversized too. I will try to get a picture to post tomorrow when I find my camera.

Sorry for the size - my tech support is working on that for me!
[And the tech support can't make it bigger, because the upload size is what's showing up :)]

Also put up the wrong picture - so here is last months - still wrong month, but at least I think I haven't posted these two either. Maybe some year I will get my act together.

Thanks for peeking!
