Here's what my blocks look like, using the simple stack 4 layers, cut squares, sew 4-patches technique -- sorry for the sloppy picture, but I think they're fabulous! I probably won't sew them together for a while, but I'm thinking about sashing them in gray with red cornerstones... Here are a couple of other examples from our get-together yesterday -- first is from Kuniyo
And this is from Kathy, who use two different colorways of the same fabric:
I think the tropical print came out really well; the two-fabric one seems less successful (or maybe it's just that I don't like the fabric...)
I've spent the day today trying to rearrange my sewing room so that I can actually move around the table that holds my Handiquilter. I had help setting up Max-Throat last Monday and it seems to be working smoothly despite that fact that I'm kinda winging it as far as making all the right adjustments. Now I have no excuse for all those unquilted tops in my closet!
