Block #8 looks like fun! Glad I got caught up yesterday.


Oh boy! Now I really have to do math. I'm making a set of blocks @50% so this one should be really fun,


Oh boy is right! I made the previous blocks 6-inches (finished size). I think I will make this block #8 at 12-inches (finished size). So I think I'm going to change the 3.5" strip to 2.5" and the 2.5" strips will be 1.5". The applique will be WAY out of my comfort zone!


Oh what fun. I am loving this unsymetrical multi sized blocks.
I have wanted to do a multi sized star quilt for ever but this is even better fun fun fun


Colette, just cut out a square of paper the size of your finish inner block fold in half and cut a heart, then a smaller square for a smaller heart etc or print pattern at 50% or 40% or what ever will make them fit
Looks like the hearts are free form and not echos of each other

I absolutely love the setting and the asymmetrical blocks! So ME! I'm using leftover Provence fabrics from another favorite quilt I made, and just having so much fun with this! I look forward to seeing what's new on Wednesday, and can't wait to get started!


I am having SO much fun with this! I wanted to do the splendid sampler but it looked overwhelming to me. This one is perfect! So fun! I can't wait until Wednesdays to see the new block! And I even did my very first applique because of it! I can't even express how much fun this is! Thank you Pat!

I simply love this block and can't wait to make it. Pat, oh my goodness, where do you get all your energy. You are like the ever ready bunny!!!!! :)


I am trying to keep up thank you looks great.


I am loving this sew along as well. I appreciate you giving us the layout. I'm working with a group of fat quarters I already have, so having the layout will help with fabric choice. Love, love, love the layout. Thank you!

Is this where I comment that I'd love to try a fat quarter quilt?

Bloque 8 me parece divertido. Lástima que continúe con la pierna mala. No puedo coser. Tengo que estar en cama todo el día. Saludos Pat Sloan y muchas gracias por tu arte.

Since you so kindly sent me the instructions for making a comment, I must try it out. It took awhile to get to your little picture because I was admiring all the heart blocks. I learned two things - I am a rule follower and I need to get out of the box and try a variation. Thanks for all the sew-alongs. You are keeping me busy. Fellow quilters - your blocks are divine!


Oh boy - I'm starting to get behind on the Solstice quilt. You know what that means - the beginning of the end. HAHA! Thank you for sharing this with us. You inspire me every day. ~smile~

I'm frustrated with the website.. I was using a day off from working to catch up by downloading the last 4 Solstice blocks. Notice when reading the notes before downloading that several of the blocks had pictures posted on them. Decided I go back later to look through other people's selections since I have no one locally to share with.. My Internet Explorer crashed (pretty much a normal occurrence these days and now I simply can't find where the pictures are posted. Can anyone tell me where or how to find the pictures again?


Sue right at the top & on the right, is the navigation bar by blocks page. Did you look at that?
