Hi Kim,
Your blocks are gorgeous. The Tennessee star looks great and I love the Bachelor's Puzzle block. I haven't got any new pics of mine, but I'm nearly done with the second row.

Wow, you are so fast!!! You will be done way before I am! :) I suspect I'll be getting a lot less done with my daughter in school... the homework is always a big time consuming ordeal. I can't wait to see the pictures!!! Oh, and please call me Kimberly. I never go by Kim. ;)

Hi Kimberly,

Sorry about that. I actually thought of it after I went back to my piecing. I thought, "Doh! I wrote 'Kim' instead of 'Kimberly.'" I almost went back and edited it. I'm on the outer triangles of Mrs Cleveland's Choice and it's actually got me looking up websites and books on mini quilts. These six inch blocks are totally addicting.

Don't worry about my name. :)

As for the block, are you paper piecing it?

Diane said...

Nope, traditional hand piecing. Once I got the triangles around the center square, I realized that's as hard as it would get! The whole block came out about an eighth of an inch over 6.5, I think because it's hard to see a quarter inch seam on such small pieces. It feels like the seam is bigger than the piece! I sent Jennifer a pic for the site, so watch for it with the pattern. I'm hoping to get some more pics together tomorrow.

Are you going to post it on your site too?
