Aw don't worry Taoj, I will love it! You and I are both beginning quilters, so I am just sitting back and enjoying the super fancy ones while trying to realize that I am just in a different skill level right now!

Just speaking for myself, definately a different skill level  Shocked

I received from Lmcbride last Thursday while I was packing up from vacation, so didn't even take pictures until late yesterday - sorry for the picture quality

the pictures don't show it clearly, but the blocks are Cathedral Window blocks which are traditionally not made with batting (she followed tradition here) and she added yo-yos in a fun ginham to the intersections and beaded some of the blocks. Black and red is a combo that I really like Smiley

Thanks. Smiley  Those yo-yo's cover up a multitude of sins.  To make them I bought the plastic template thingy from Joanne Fabrics - it's cool because it makes it so easy to cut the right size and shape and then there are stitching guide holes so each one goes really quickly and easily.  Now I want to make a whole blanket out of yo-yo's!

And cathedral window is hard. Cheesy  If you need everything to be just-so, and you have marginal technical skill like I do, then cathedral window could be quite a challenge.  But I was given a box of hundreds and hundreds of those shapes that someone had cut out, probably in the 70's, and I just thought it would be a nice spiritual gesture to whoever painstakingly started the process of making a big CW quilt and wasn't able to see it through, to start using them at least in smaller projects.
