Blocks for Warm Up America

I'm sending off the blocks that I've finished, a total of 16 from Sunday through Wednesday! I found out few interesting things...
1) The stitch called the "bushy stitch" in "63 Easy-to-Crochet Patterns Stitches Combine to Make an Heirloom Afghan" is the same basic stitch pattern as the Flying V's at the Warm Up America website. However, the Flying V's has a ch 3 at the beginning of the rows, and a dc at the end. This creates a nice straight left and right edge, while the Bushy stitch has a shell-like edge.
2) I really love the Trinity stitch in the 63 Easy...Stitches book. I might use this for a baby blanket.
3) I really love the Star stitch.
4) I never get enough time to try all the beautiful stitch patterns in all the books.
