Those are the exact dimensions for those blocks.  I had a bunch of scrap strips and blocks in that size range so I didn't have to do a lot of cutting, it was sew and go!

Good luck with your class!

Hi GAB - Thanks for the compliment on my patchwork diagonals quilt.  I don't know if that pattern has a name.  I was initially going to make the Chinese Coins pattern and didn't like the way it was coming together.  Since I already had some triangle blocks left over from another quilt, I decided to play around and combine the two.  I used the same design in the Scrap Blocks quilt I made, I just turned the blocks in a different direction.

I love your quilts.  Your applique is GORGEOUS!

Thank you for the compliment on my Bingo Quilt.  It already has a good home.  I gave it to my daughter-in-law's sister-in-law for her birthday last week.

I looked at your quilts. They are gorgeous!  You do a lot of complicated piecing and applique.

I belong to 3 groups with Quilt With Us and I enjoy e-mailing my on-line quilt friends.

To save you searching I went to search her blog tutorials and got this specific page for you - http://www.dontcallmebetsy.com/2011/02/block-party-sliced-scrappy-block.html   Have a nice tomorrow!

Hello!  I saw your post asking about my side by side wall hanging and thought I would drop in and give you the website I saw the technique on - www.dontcallmebetsy.com  I probably changed some measurements and added some more sashing I think, but you will get the directions on her site.  Thanks!  Vic

it's nice to have a small item that you can finish quickly and see results, plus, small cosmetic cases or purses make excellent gifts and provide quilting practice.

Hi, GAB. Thanks for your comment on my lone star top! It led me to see your quilts and they are REALLY beautiful. My work is still not as perfect as yours, but I'm working towards it!!!

BTW, will be in the area in July-August.

GAB, your points look pretty good for the first hand applique.  Did you also use the chalk on the outside of the thread on the applique fabric? I find, when doing curves, if my left hand holding the applique project is pinching the partially turned seam allowance that I have a harder time getting my curves soothe as I am pressing points in with my finger. With the chalk on the applique fabric I can pull the seam allowance back out to where it should be and hopefully avoid choppy curves.

Good luck with the heart.  Inside points and outside points are the hardest to do.  I always put an extra stitch or two on the inside point to catch all the threads. Marking just outside the thread with the chalk should help you see where to turn the seam allowance.

Good luck.
