Judy I thought this was a really fun block.  I love the fabrics you used.  The floral is really fun.

everyones blocks look great. I think I might have some large print that I can add to the center. I really like how it looks on everyone elses. Looks like everyone is getting going on the paper piecing but I will type this up for anyone who might need it.

Paper Piecing cheat sheet

1) Always sew on the printed side of the paper

2) Where do you put the fabric? on the un-printed side

3) Only the first piece of fabric will go right side up. All the rest will go right side down, making them right sides together

4) Shorten the stitch length (1.2-1.5mm, depending on machine) to lock your pieces in place and to perforate the paper

5) Line up each piece of fabric approximately 1/4" over the seam that you're about to sew. Make sure excess sits over top of the fabrics already sewn, not where the part of the template you want the fabric to cover ( one of my frequent mistakes)

6) trim excess seam allowance fabric with scissors. Just eyeball. Rotary cutting can cause Oops.

Helpful hints. Use dry iron, steam will distort your paper foundations. Be sure to stitch a few stitches beyond the start and end of each line to lock each piece in place. Use a dab of glue stick to hold first piece in place. You can use a pin but it can be a bit wrinkly.

hope this is helpful to someone

I am a little late, but here is my Constance's Pride.  It needs a little adjustment before sashing. Why do I always have problems with those QSTs?  I guess I need to make those squares a little larger before cutting. Everything else seems to measure correctly.

Love the fabrics Marsha, I have that dark brown, except my leans towards a deep redish/brown, almost maroon.

Marsha, I always cut mine at least 1/4" larger, it is so much easier to trim down than try to make it larger. LOL

Your block looks great BTW. 

I hope to be able to post mine tomorrow evening.
