Thanks y'all. I appreciate the feedback. But, I think you are being a bit TOO nice. I sure can see it in the true light. Of course, we are tougher on ourselves.

Sukochi - If there is a problem with your block, I can't see it.  In fact it looks great to me.

Sukochi, there's no reason to be unkind as you did a lovely job on the block. The colors you used are wonderful. You're your own worse critic. Be kinder to yourself.

Sukochi,you know what is nice about doing these BOm's on a group like this , It makes us improve our skills. If you run into a problem doing a block just ask one of us to help out. we,can give you little tips to help out. this is why we do these together. so we can learn. there are no quilt police here and I fully expect that all of us except maybe for Jacy  (love ya girl ) well ask for help at some point or give out tips that will help others. All you gotta do is ask , Barbara

Ok, Barbara I am holding you to that. And, I have a question. This does not tell how much fabric a block takes. It does not list  fabric requirements.. I am ready, and have chosen fabric for Indian Plume .But am not sure I have enough of each. I love these fabrics and don't want to just start cutting only to find I haven't enough and have lost this beautiful fabric.  I have a Fabracalc but don't know how to figure this out. How do you do this?

Kris:

Your block is gorgeous Sukochi. I love your fabrics.

You all are so good for my critical view of everything I do. Jim said it was beautiful. But, I discount what he says as he is color blind, so what could he know. Per haps I should re think that.

God gave me a talent, whether good or bad, and I should rejoice and know I can do this through Him. I am not putting these in a show, they don't have to be perfect. This is FUN!!. From now on, gang, no stressing out over this. ; - z

Y'all are the absolute best!. Thank you all so much.

Sukochi
