Here's mine:

This is the fourth block from beginning. I rescued some parts from the first two. I now have the quarter inch seam down pat and marked needle position for future. So many beautiful blocks being made.

Agnes, I love the fabric in your block!  Did you do any fussy cutting in the center 9 patch? I like how you have the bldg for the right middle block. 

I think you just did a redesign rather than a rescue. Glad you got the 1/4 inch down, I'm still working on that and still spend a lot of time with my seam ripper.

Here's my very simple block for Marge.... I agree with Agnes that so many beautiful blocks are being made. The quilt will be spectacular!

Bev :

I tried to fussy cut for the blocks when I first started but I soon gave up. Then when I ditched those and started again all I was concerned about was keeping the background fabric directional. Easy to do by using the four at a time no waste flying geese method. I'll share the first and then the final results here.

Karla, would you like the second star block? I will gladly send both.

Here's the Friday rendition.

And the fallout after today;s blocks. That's two bonus mug rugs.

Agnes your block is very pretty.  I had to redo both of my blocks too.  I hope they will be ok they are really simple blocks.  You did a nice job.

Agnes, if you would like to send both, please feel free to do so.  Right now we have 33 blocks committed, so the quilt is getting bigger.  We might end up with 36 blocks to make the quilt a 6 X 6.

Maggie aka Grandma Sunshine:

 

I must have gotten the colors for Kristen and Marge mixed up. You'll just have to put my block on the back because I don't have time to redo. I've never done crazy quilting before and it took me all day for two blocks. ROTFL. 

 Maggie - love your crazy quilt blocks!!

Karla--Both will be on the way to you. Sounds like the quilt will be large enough for Marge to wrap herself up in with our hugs.

I had that happen to me once on Saturday, but that was the only time.  It has been working much better lately, though, so I'm happy.

I should have mine done this week so I can mail them on Saturday.  At least, that's my plan now that my reunion weekend is over!

Agnes, you posted that you use an easy to do by using the four at a time no waste flying geese method so I looked on line for this.

Is the 2nd example on this website the method you use?
