What are you most proud of? Circles are done! I didn't particularly enjoy this month's blocks but they are done now.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I were to do any more drunkard's path blocks I would definitely get the templates. Now I can throw away my slightly beat-up cardboard templates!

wow, I really like how you've organized these blocks, and the color gradations.

Thanks, juliat! I did have fun playing with these - not to mention starting to run out of some fabrics

Hey Darns -- I just have finally now got my Moonrise block going! I just realized, looking again at your *beautiful* block, that I've reversed my colors. I have my dark colors on the bottom, lightening as they go up! I may have to call mine Mountain Sunrise! Oop. (Also, I had no idea all those little circle pieces would be so difficult to work with -- gack!)

Hi, Alyx, I thought those curved pieces were a pain also - cutting & sewing

OMG I just love this block! I must look this up and try it-fabulous!

Thanks, Mimi! I had a lot of fun playing with the colors in the moonrise block. Curves are not so intimidating now as they were when I did these blocks - practice really does help.
