Now how many of these 6" blocks were/are in the works? Aren't you almost half way there? I've enjoyed seeing them and all the different ways the simple 'quilt' pattern units can be used.

I have 50 of them done - just not all posted yet. The "Master Plan" has 99 - 9-patches - so I'm about half way there - ;))

I like it! In fact, it is slated to be the first block in my version of Farmer's Wive sampler though minus the background colored square in the middle. Mine will look more like one friendship star atop another. Other than that, JUST like it, LOL.

Half done you said? Hurray for you!
