Ek tricky tricky. My turnstile is done, but I think I may have to redo it. Theres a bit of a gap in the middle of 2 of the points.

I cant 100% guarantee to see this out till the end, but can say with certainty that at this stage it is my absolute intention to do so. I've still only completed the log cabin block, but have purchased more quilting fabric and just need to find the time and right headspace to catch up.
And another of the lovely Tga TNN'ers has just started 2 sampler quilts, one for her and one for her daughter, and so has done 2 x log cabin blocks and 2 x 9 block pieces which are stunning, so maybe there are also others that havent outed themselves yet :D
Just outed myself :wink: in the photos thread.

Totally stoked with how my first blocks came out and just trying to find the time to get March blocks cut out.

OOps!
Forgot about this, I've been knitting like a demon lately.
Your shots are great Tash - go you!

OK - this weekend is about cutting out the Ohio Star and getting a tute up for that.

And as for binding etc, ummmmmmm.. I'll hunt one out and link it for you.

Dont get too carried away Fi, I just did the Feb one today and was going to attempt the Turnstile tomorrow. But not holding out hope of it working out straight, I didnt get the 9 block one to line up and its 12.75" so I cant win as my log cabin was 12 x 12.25 and now a 12.75" 9 block :smt044

I've just done the turnstile and am so impressed, it was a PITA had to unpick twice but am stoked with the outcome. I'm just trying to get photos off camera and then will post some pics. Oooo and btw this is the first one to end up 12.5" x 12,5" go figure.

Thanks after stuffing up sewing it from 4 blocks to 2 rectangles, I took my time aligning the last 2, DH wondered what I was doing bent over the ironing board for about twenty minutes.

I really like doing that one and would never have attempted it without your tutorial.
