Will see if I can combine those. So now to come up with 3 more! Will definitely share pictures once I figure out & sew these last 6.
    You got it! Iook Can't wait to see.

    Moonwork, love the bubble lady from the 30's. Today's bubble lady might have one balloon. And happy quilting.

    Fraew, Great star. That center fabric is yummy. I don't know whether to call is red or purple. I think we're using the same background fabric. See below.

    Thanks all. I used fabrics from my Tonga Treats strips and squares. The collection is "Lollipop". The background is from the "Meringue" collection.

    Wow again. Can't wait to get caught up. I am 2 behind. I have to finish my baby quilt. I started Sunday night. The quilt is made up of 16 patch blocks and alternates with an applique of a princess crown. THe 16 patch blocks are finished. Just need to square them up. I made a test applique block last night and it worked out really well. They are all set on point and have a border. Hopefully it will continue to go together quickly. While my machine was in the shop last month I cut out blocks. I have all of them cut out in little baggies. It was fun choosing fabrics. I managed to make all of the blocks from my stash. I only purchased my background since I wanted them all the same. I have been trying to work from my stash lately since it has gotten out of control.

    Meanmom, I have a few of them, so let me know which one(s) & I'll look & send them to you in an email. You can PM if you'd like.

    Thanks Patricia Faye. I don't really know which ones I want. I was just trolling there looking for inspiration. I need to make a couple of blocks for my quilt guild out of some charm squares. I'm not finding anything that is just grabbing me. I might just make one of the state stars. I need to make 2-12 inch squares. Anything I want. I have a weird mix of colors to choose from. Something will come to me eventually.

    Whitepine those colors are so lovely together. Your block is wonderful! Fraew looks like you are off to a great start!
