Sounds good to me.  I will start going thru the book and try to pick some easy ones to get us started.

Barbara,

templates aren't so bad. You can print/trace them onto freezer paper, cut them out on the lines then iron them to your fabric. Cut your fabric 1/4 inch away from the template edge to add your seam allowance. This method is easy and if you're making tons of single use templates you won't go broke buying template material.

You can also print on plain paper cut them out with the seam allowance then stick them to your rotary ruler for easy cutting. 

When we get started we'll get you sorted.

I have spent a large portion of the night since I haven't been able to sleep looking at the different blocks.  I would guess at least 90% of the blocks can be done without a template.  Most can be done with HSTs instead of working with a template if you prefer.

I went to Connecting Threads and ordered the book so count me in. Sounds like it will be fun. I hope I can keep up. I'm another one who hasn't done much with templates. The flying geese on the BOM is the extent of my experience.

I want to say thank you to all the wonderful comments about my blocks.  Once you have a few blocks done you will find it really cool to be able to lay the blocks that are all so different together and have them look so neat.  Pretty soon mine will be bigger than my design wall and I will have to drag out my wall extension.

Pat~That was my first experience, too and it wasn't that bad. Kris's idea about printing them out on freezer paper makes me feel better already.

So we will be the Template Tagalongs....me, Leslie, Barbara, Pat...anyone else?

Will order the book today. I was thinking, too that this will be good to use up some of the tons of 4" squares I have.

I hope I don't break out in hives or anything contagious. lol

I spent the morning playing with with different layouts and colour ways. I have a couple that I really like. I dug out some fabrics that match those colours. This will be fun.

I've been wanting to make this quilt for awhile, so count me in.  I have to order the book.  Kris, any chance of you posting your pics of layouts you've tried?  I don't have EQ7.  Do you have to have it?

The CD that comes with the book is a stand alone that just gives the templates to print off.  There is a companion CD that can be bought that works with EQ 6 and 7.
