Block 39:  Boy's Nonsense, p. 21

Please post all your ideas, frustrations, questions, thoughts, but most important pictures!

(The Boy's Nonsense block has the correct photo but the pattern is that for Gentleman's Fancy.)

Anyone notice that the picture doesn't match the pattern?  The picture shows a solid green rectangle but the pattern shows it to be a flying geese rectangle.  I guess we can do it however we want to?  The solid probably is the way I'm going.

the picture shows it solid, but the drawing of the block right next to the picture shows a flying goose unit. so i was a little  confused, too.     i think it will look fine however it is done.     gini

when i cut out the triangle units for the flying goose part they didn't match up  and i had to fiddle with them to get  them to fit  right.  gini

I see what you mean.  I must have frogged and recut pieces for each section.  I finally pulled the paper off to get the sections to attach properly.  I hope the rest of these paper pieced go easier.

So pretty Marilyn. Those fusions are awesome. I think I bought them in every colour. Since I'm drawing the blocks in EQ6 I probably won't be doing much paper piecing.

Kris, I have eq6 as well but it is a lot of work to redraw the blocks in.  I have not played with it enough but I did adapt a swirling log cabin block to do for my nephew and it took me quite a while and many redos to get what I wanted.  Is there an easier way that I am missing?

Marilyn,

I use blocks that look similar then change them. Some I have to draw from scratch but I don't mind. It really helps improve my skills. It's a lot of work but I decided to do this because the first block I tried to make had a mistake in the book. Then I found out it wasn't the only one.

I liked making this one.  Now that I'm up to block 43, Gentlemen's Fancy, it looks like the pattern is just the same.  Does changing the name make it a different block?

Sorry I picked the wrong picture!  This one is right!

The blocks are the same but the colours are different. Maybe she ran out of blocks. I guess you could call it what ever you like.

They're not next to each other in the quilt so no one will notice.

Nice block.
