    It amaizes me how different these blocks look with all of the different fabrics. I like the idea of each having different personalities! How much better ya can see it when they are tagether.
    Jan - Great blocks! I agree, the only color you're missin' is Yella'. I hope ya find just the right shade.
    Quilt - The yella in your blocks just pops with that blue sashing & maroon cornerstones. Wow! Ya got a great eye for color.

    Thanks DublB ... I wanted the cornerstones to be more subtle and not pop out too much, so went with the ruby.

    Both the sashings and cornerstones are Fusions Mist ... a whole line of great blenders if you're looking for something that's got some multi-tones in them. I like them even better than the MMKrystal I used for the FWS ... we did try the Fusions, but the green had just too much yellow coming thru and looked gastly, compared to the Krystal.


    And my apologies ... looks like you got a double of the big pic! .... and by the time I realized it, it was too late to pull one off.

    I wish I could give you better pictures to look at ... and I look forward to hearing some "colour commentary" on what to work on for the coming blocks.

    wooohoooooo .... we're 1/3 done!

    Oh wow, I did not realize we were at 30 blocks already! What great looking quilts you are going to have. Gardnergal, Jan and QuiltE have led the way, lets see the rest of the gang's blocks. I'll get a photo of mine tomorrow. I've previewed several fabrics as sashings, and cannot say what color I'll use. These blocks sure do take up a lot more room on the display board than the FWS blocks don't they? I may make this into two lap size quilts like I did the FWS quilt.

    Anael ... I like how your white background has become a trend. It really brightens the overall look, and sure makes the colours pop, including the coloured backgrounds.

    Here's some of my blue for you to try for your sasahing.
    *passes Anael some of her fabric*
    Another one that comes to mind. is a rich chocolate and black mix, also from the Fusions Mist.
    Or a dark green, like the greenery in a garden ... and perfect ofr all those beautiful garden-like colours.

    Oh thanks so much QE I will certainly try the blue!
    Will have to do a search for Fusions Mist, never heard of this fabric. Sounds very good though!

    I found it. What do you all think of this as sashing?
