Today's block as you can see uses the templates. The last time I used them I wasn't fond of them. I will be able to practice using this template again as it will be in six more blocks this year, and four of them are in May. The weather should be better by then (we are expecting some sort of winter storm tonight until Wednesday), and using it probably won't bother me much then.
I think when the pieces are sewn together correctly it makes for nice star points (thus the reason for using a template). :) I actually really like this 12-inch block...and wouldn't this be amazing as a bed-sized quilt?! Oh the wheels are turning. This is block number 58 of 366. Don't forget to enter the Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate give away you can find here, you only have until Friday! I will be linking with Judy for Design Wall Monday. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
