Struggling on my fabric selection for March's block as well as Option A or B. Thought if I did this mock up it would help me decide. It helps, but I still haven't decided.

This is absolutely beautiful... I don't think with these fabrics you could go wrong. I find it helps to look at the blocks that other people have posted-- it really lets you see the different combinations of light and dark that are possible.

Laurie, Love your colors. It helps so much to see the placement with the quilt template in the background! I am doing a very mixed color pallet and wondered if you could explain how you over-layed your blocks on the template? It that possible? Just a general how-to? would love to do this for my blocks.

Enchante, I wish is was computer savvy enough to explain how I did it. If you pull up the Intro packet materials list and open up that PDF, go to page 5 with is the line drawing of the quilt top and copy it, then I pasted that into my paint program and saved it. From there I made sure I had head on photos of my blocks upload to the computer. I cropped the photos of the blocks to the edge of the fabric. Then I used paint to open the photos one at a time, manipulated the size and copy and pasted it into the Quilt layout . I know there is someone on this forum with more tech acumen that could better explain it to everyone. Maybe post a question on the board and see if a someone can explain it clearly.

How did you get your blocks into this template? Did you do that online? Awesome blocks!

03/08/2013 Flag

Was looking at the BOM selections and your fabrics were featured in one of the screens. When I looked at you selections they were so on-point for myself I opted to follow your progress. Wish I had signed up for the class now! I may yet after some more research. Congrats for having such great taste in your color layout.

Thanks mom2:) I have fallen behind a month.....April was busy for me. Plan to get the April block done so I can start on Mays. You should sign up, it's free and you can do it on your own time schedule.
