Cyclone Quilt

I’m thrilled to tears with the Cyclone blocks that have been flying to my mailbox!  This is my block for the One Block Over Bee, for July.  I sent out fabric and paper foundation patterns and asked these talented ladies to create a Cyclone block for me. 

I think they’re troopers, they have not all paper pieced before, but all were willing to at least give it a try.  I created a tutorial for them, over here.

Check it out, if you have any tips for them that would clarify the tutorial, please feel free to leave a comment.  It’s challenging trying to teach something as visual as paper piecing via written instructions!

Any ideas for me on sashing or setting these blocks once I get all twelve of them back?

    hee hee!
    I love that block! So contemporary… can't wait to see the finished quilt. I'd have to see the colors in the other blocks. Be sure to show us when they come in.

    I like them how they are arranged in the photo…

  2. Oh I'm with Mary on the no sashing. I think wehn they are all together you will know for sure! I love them, I was looking at them on the blog last night!!

  3. These blocks really caught my eye immediately. Thanks so much for the link to the instructions.

    Hope you will be sharing pix when all 12 have arrived.

  4. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with some p.c. to power the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

Let me know what you have to say on the subject....
