Okay I'm  late but here is block 11 , I made this a very simple design ,if any of you want to use it. it took me about a hour to quilt.  Hope to see what all of you do with yours. Barbara

Simple!? Its simply elegant. It beautifully enhances the design while adding texture. This may be your best one yet. I love it.

Thanks Denise, you are so kind. but I agree this was a weird pattern to do and I really didn't want to make my quilting  busy.  Barbara

Julienne ,this is one of the easiest patterns to do , try breaking a square down in to quarters and the draw it out first . You'll get it in no time ,  Its just a simple curve and lines .. barbara

Barbara, this is very pretty. I like it much better than Leah Day's version. I know her objective is to teach different quilting designs but I think she overdid it on this block. I am still plugging away at this quilt, but it is going very slowly.

Pat,

I agree. I think Leah does a lot of over quilting.

I have gotten some good tips from her in the Craftsy class, but overall I think her designs are overkill. I have decided that the quilt police don't have my address so I will do this my way. LOL

Pat, thanks so much , I agree that some of the blocks were over done , but again she is teaching designs, so I understand her reason, but that doesn't mean  we have to use them all . I still love her work and have her to thank for learning how to do quilting .
