What are you most proud of? That I stuck with it -- the piece placement of this block almost drove *me* wonky! But I love the finished block -- so it was worth it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do something you love -- if you don't like a block -- make it something you do like! And... stick with it!

I know what you mean about June's blocks not being too interesting. Good way to explore different arrangements.

Thanks! Now I've got to figure out what to do with the "plates" for July. ;-)

I love the look of this. I'm glad that you stuck with it and made a block you are proud of.

Thanks. Me, too. Though, I confess, I had to redo that bottom stitching *three* times -- and it's still not quite perfect. But, this is my first quilting endeavor and I think I'll look at each block and it's own little pecadilloes and... smile. (I hope, anyway.)

Wow Alyx! For "hard" blocks this came out beautifully. Love your twist on this!

Thanks much! Me, too. Can you see the alien? (He's a match for the way wonky block.)

I see him - he's hard to miss! Very spooky....

Amazing!! I don't know how you got there but I really like it!

08/14/2012 Flag

Thanks! I'm not quite sure how I got there either!

I love the look. This is fun.

Thanks! He's a match for one of my earlier blocks -- the Way Wonky....
