    Oh how I love the fabric mixes you've used for both blocks MiraB ... as usual beautiful they are!
    I can't wait to see your first 30 grouping,
    MiraB!

    I think we're all finding some challenges in this quilt ... which is good for us ... otherwise, how will we ever get better, if we don't have challenges to grow our skills?

    mirabelle, your blocks are lovely. I like the different color values you used in the Eastertide block. I'm sure some steam pressing will help those corners as well--yes they were buggers. It also helped for me to press that corner patch so the both seam allowances were pressed toward the center of the block. Have you used the roses on blue background yet? As always, great FC them in!
    I couldn't help but think of The Old Rugged Cross when I first saw this block, so like QNinaSue I chose a wood fabric complements of her. Ella's Star was fun to PP. (Quit snickering QE!!!)Name:  PC 31 Eastertide.jpg

    Great blocks mirabelle and beautiful fuzzy cutting! I wouldn't worry too much about some flaws. My former sewing teacher used to say: steam pressing does the job LOL.

    Oksewglad, your blocks are beautiful and the fabrics are lovely.

    QNS: beautiful! Great fuzzy cutting!

    Perfection in the fabrics chosen, the work done, and of course, I have to remember to give a nod to the PPP!!!!!!
    Your Easter block really did pick up the Easter theme ... I've been tempted to use Easter fabric, but the block speaks totally to the true Easter. Maybe Ella's will see something juvenile?

    QNSue...you do such a great job with the fussy cutting plus you have such beautiful horses to showcase! I'm glad that we don't have to have perfect blocks to post too.

    Mirabelle...looking good. I can't wait to see what your show and tell looks like. You've chosen such classic fabric. I bet we would never know that it was made on a dusty trail ride! And perfection is for the quilt police...none allowed on this ride. It really is encouraging when people who have quilted for many years finds a challenge and is willing to let the world see it.

    Oksewglad...you braved the little squares in Eastertide and conquered. Great job.

    Eastertide and Ella's Star

    What beautiful blocks all. I'll have mine sometime in the future but for now I'm going to oooh and aaah over yours.

    Honchey, your blocks are stunning and look perfect. I love the blue/brown/cream color combo!!

    Anael, beautiful blocks and perfect points. Love that blue/white color combo!!

    JanRN, oh I love the hyacinths!! They're one of my favorites. I can just smell them now. Beautiful fabric in both and such great work!!

    gardnergal970, love the colors in both your blocks. Great job!! Blue and yellow is one of my favorite color combos.

    QuiltingNinaSue, your blocks look great!! The horses look so pretty with the surrounding fabric. Great choice of wood for the cross.

    Mirabelle, your blocks are so beautiful, no one will notice any little imperfection. I think they look great!

    oksewglad, your Eastertide is wonderful!! It does look like an old rugged cross. The block has a feeling about it, can't explain it. Very pretty fabrics in Ella's star.

    OK - The Easter Tide blocks with wood for the cross are perfect! I have ta break away from my fabric & at least use a brown for my cross, Hmmm & blue for the background. Your ET is awesome! You & QNS have inspired me. Your Ella's Star has some great fabrics with wonderful contrast! Not ta mention great PP!

    OK, I need to vent. Those little corners in Eastertide are kickin' my butt. Honchey, I've tried but keep getting a tuck in the corner. I'm going to take nap.
