I had so much trouble with this block for some reason!  Couldn't get the things to match up and must have ripped & re-ripped it apart several times before I finally finished it this evening.  One of the most frustrating blocks I've ever worked on.  Glad this one is done.  Good luck to the rest of you on this one!  Have a great July & stay cool.

Wow Patricia,

sorry you had so much trouble with this one. It looks great though. I love your fabrics. That purple is a zinger. Well done, way to persevere.

Thanks KRis and Patirica, but the more I looks at it the more I think I should have used a darker black .it kinda fades into this one.

Patricia, nice job.  Sounds like you struggled but the end result isgreat.

Love your choice of fabrics.

I have yet to have courage to do any of the compass collection but have been lurking and watching.

Barbara, yours turned out nice as well.

You ladies will get me to do this yet.  Keep up the good work.

Darlene these patterns are not hard  and if you print one to use as your color guide you not have a problem ,just take your time and remember to decrease your stitch length to 1.5 .and use your open applique foot . just take your time . Thanks for your kicd words ..Barbara

Yep!  It looks great to me!  WTG Barbara. 

I just got mine done a few days ago.  I'm sooooo farrrrrr behind on so many projects.   Anyway, here it is at long last.... :-)

It's got a booboo in it but I decided I wasn't going to fix it.  I kind of wish I had done 2 shades on green on the big spikes....  Hmmmmm.  I've still got Aug & Sept. to do....
