these blocks are from a book. cut loose quilts.http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1571201548/qid=1086710681/sr=8-4/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i4_xgl14/104-7459925-5392723?v=glance&s=books&n=507846 its a fun book cause of the modern twist on the traditional patterns. i borrowed it from the library and just had to buy it. well worth it. it is also a good book for beginners because as the name suggests things are loose and are not supposed to match up.

9 patch

and roman tile/rail fence

the roman tile one i am working on is for Victoria's Quilts Canada. we make quilts for the comfort of people with cancer. my mom is a coordinator. there are groups all over canada and the US and they are always looking for more volunteers. check them out.

http://www.victoriasquiltscanada.com (this link is all messed up and have no clue why but you can see the site so just copy paste if you are interested) for the canadian site if you go to volunteers the have a listing of all of the groups throughout canada.
