    The FWS 30's Quilt-Along week 3 Blocks Anne & April

    Alright ladies, Let's all see what you've been sewing this past week.. I chose totally different colors for April..To me April is usually a cool month so I chose cool colors.. I know it has nothing to do with the woman's name, I just thought of it that way. So here we go!!!

    The blue in April is showing more purple to me and the green is too yellow.

    I really like the blocks that everyone has shown. Every ones color placements are a joy to look at.
    Welcome to all the new gals that have joined us in the 30's quilts.
    In answer to JanRN's question of how many green fabrics I have. I purchased 26 new ones and i have about 8 or 10 old pieces of green. When I like a fabric I usually buy 1 yard and if I really like it I might buy 2 or 3 yards. This way if I run out of fabric I can always add more any where in the quilt and not mess with the balance. In previous quilts I have run out of some fabric, and I can't find anymore to go with it, so I switched to more monochromatic colors

    I threw back the quilt on my bed and took the pictures; they really aren't as crooked as they look. I will try to take better pictures next time.

    GrannyQ, your blocks are so vibrant! Pretty greens

    QNS, I think that your blocks will look fine after they've been pressed..We know about your eye problems and it amazes me that you can make them..it takes a lot of effort on your part

    Thanks, Anne, but it was poor photograph taking this morning with too much going on here. Love those colors of your blocks, and GrannyQ;s and CookiyIN. It is sooo much fun watching everyone's posting of their blocks, the colors just dance on each block. Eye candy for sure!

    It looks like we all had trouble matching the points on one of the outer rings. No matter what I did, I couldn't match the edges of the outer ring on my first one. I was surprised when the other three rings didn't give me trouble too.
