  2. It is a cute block... Beware! My hubs and I just finished pulling the paper off of an I Spy for our grandson to be... Took us 3 evenings to do the 6 rows that were left to do this time. (I was having so much trouble with it I put it away for 2 years.) I have a couple of blocks to fix, and paper pieced - that ain't easy after the fact. Whole quilt, okay, but that paper removal is why the quilt takes almost twice the time.

  3. I do love a challenge :0)
    Yep I'm one of those!

    Lovely block, who knew turning 50 could be so much fun?
    I look forward to seeing Lori's quilt completed. do you think she'll
    have it done while she is still 50?

    Happy Sewing

  5. I would never have the patience to do a whole quilt in blocks that size! It would end up as UFO or a wall hanging!

  6. I love the accuracy of the paper piecing. The colors are wonderful too.

  7. I do love the way small blocks look, but I think I love how quickly big blocks make a quilt even more!

  8. Try it..you'll like it. I made a queen size lover's knot for my daughter's wedding quilt. It had something like 1,400 pieces and I remember thinking..what were you thinking! But it turned out spectacular.
