Well I can see why Dee Dee was so delighted to work on this block. It's my favorite so far! I love it and think it came out quite well. Of course as with all of Jane's blocks I learned something. And that something was this: If you have a point and want it to stay exactly in the spot you've placed it, don't start with the midpoint of the mellon - it'll shift by the time you get to where you want it to be. Start at the point so it sticks. I think there maybe a life lesson in here somewhere too but I won't get all philosophical on you. ;^)

Hello, and thanks for following my blog! Good for you for being a SAHM. I have a degree in Engineering and quit working 20 years ago to be a SAHM. The extra money would have been nice, but I've never regretted my decision. And I would have never discovered quilting if I'd kept working.

Now both daughters are in college and I have even more time to quilt.

By the way, love your blog - your fabric choices are great!
