I;m in please.Going to do Boxy Stars.
Ok Linda, I think I'll try and make a list to keep up with who's doing what.
Yes - but where is that link again to get the pattern?
Back on page 5 or 6 in the general discussion.
I would like to do boxy stars.
Thanks. I think I will go ahead and do Playing With Jacks.
I thought it looked familiar, but didn't recognize the name until I read Bonnie's blog. I'm going to use one of the alternative names "Cats in the Cradle" since I have 5 cats at home and 4 cats at school. This block always looked so complicated to me and Bonnie's directions seem easy enough. :-)
Well let me try it- and i pick Boxy Stars. Now my next question is- does it have to be a completed quilt or is just the top OK?
I'm gonna' play with the other kids this time. This will be my 1st challenge participation. I'm going with Boxy Stars. Thanks char!
I don't need to start another quilt -- I've too many in progress already. But, that apparently hasn't stopped me this time. A couple of weeks ago I sorted my pre-cut strips and the 2 1/2" bricks/blocks by color. So, this morning I looked to see if I could find enough 2 1/2" squares of any color to make a "boy" quilt. I tend to make "girl" quilts. I pulled all my blue squares and have them matched up either all three blocks the same or at least similar in tone/shade. Then I opened the strip box. I pulled out my red bundle. My third color is "light" -- but I'm having to cut those strips. These are the first 4 blocks that I've made. I want to make another 44.
