If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Template Difficutlies on Design Wall Monday

Make sure you pop over to Judy's Blog to see what everyone else is up to.

First template.... Template A...... I'm thinking something to do with the "Y" seam should do the trick......... let's see...... Mine you, I'm really not that good at developing my own template but how hard could it be???

"Y" seams are great if you want a less scrappy look but I figured out very quickly that that method was not for me...........LOL

Plan B........ new templates for a more scrappy look...... let's see.

Pick out several fabrics from the old stash and cut using the Plan B templates.

Stack kites and templates in the order you wish to sew.

Notice the sewing method I'm using above which is sewing the one side, pressing it, then sewing the second template and pressing it.

I'm happy with this look!! 

Love the scrappiness of this block and my basket of scraps is dwindling..... I think.  
I will make a PDF of Template B if anyone is interested..... just leave a comment expressing that or any comments about what you think so far would be very welcomed.
Stay tuned for more later on in the week.

Quite a complex block. The results are wonderful.

You're probably done with it by now, but love this scrappy quilt in progress.
