    Also breathless in Iowa. Just lovely, Honchey. You catch the "spirit" of both the blocks.

    Anne & Anael--just gorgeous blocks! I substituted a block for Eastertide. When I think of Easter I think of my dad and the beautiful hyacinths he grew (he had fantastic flower gardens). QNS sent me the hyacinth fabric so I used Monastery Windows (Quilters Cache) to showcase them. I hope these pics go through; I'm in a coffee shop at the rehab center visiting my mother.

    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    As JanRN would say .... yipppeeeeeee!!! my favourite morning of the week (OK, the yippppeeeeee was my own touch!)

    Honchey ... Your PPPPP speak totally of Easter (that'd be Perfect PP'd in Purple)!! So much motion in the background, the FC horses bodies, the points and with the stars, that the whole block really looks like it's spinning.

    Anael ... Looks like you and Honchey were working together on Ella's! And your Eastertide looks so Easter'ish and Spring'ish! Great FC and PPing!

    JanRN ... What a lovely tribute to y our Dad's flowers and I'm glad you switched the block up, so that you didn't lose those beautiful hyacinths. I can almost smell them now! And more flowers for Ella. You've really mastered PPing! Glad you have an internet connection nearby to your Mom ... how is she doing?

    I'm always amazed at different fabrics, and placements, and how blocks can look so different. I had to shrink the page way down in size so I could get JanRN's Ella's up on the screen at the same time as the others ... to convince myself it really was the same block. And yes it is ... just takes on such a different look that my eyes were being tricked! All are beautiful!!!!!!

    I second QuiltE's yipeeee. I love Wednesday mornings for all of the beautiful blocks and all of the comments. Here are mine for the week. I fudged on the little square frames and just used 2 pieces. I knew that little bugger would not stay square and the y seams are challenging enough without any more help. I looked ahead for them too....there will be more. They are becoming a little easier. Honchey, your tips really helped me. I also left out the little square in the middle of the block since I didn't use a different color. KISS!!!

    Honchey...great way to lead the posse this week. Beautifully done.

    Anael...again you've done beautiful work. Everything is so square and matching just where they should. Great fussy cutting.

    JanRN...those hyacinths are perfuming my sewing room they look so real. Beautiful blocks.

    GGal ... what better for our GardenerG to have in her blocks than some purdy posies? And beauties they are, along with the piecing and the innovations! Soft and romantic for Easter ... and me-thinks you snatched from my stash for your yellow and blue!
