Thanks Ladies ... it was a fun weekend!
I had it in my plans for sometime to do the patriotic blocks for each country represented, so vowed to myself that they were getting done! It was kind of fun. The ongoing challenge has been how to work in the yellows for some. My Canada block was probably the toughest. I actually made the block twice, as instead of the dark leaf print I had put my O Canada text fabric in the background with the yellow inserts, but the whole block just didn't have any zing to it. Remade it last night and am much happier.
The PP maple leaf is a remake of one I found on the internet. I might still remake it a bit as the left points are not quite even with the right in the pattern. Will take some time to do that ... and for now, not a priority! Never thought I wanted a light box, and am starting to think it would be a handy thing to have.
JanRN ... It's easy-peasy to do ... you could leave it the size as is or blow it up, if you want a larger beaver. I'll send you the pattern details, as I need to look that up! With the story, perhaps you need to do several for your DS? And what a story it is!! Endangered species here too, and because of their industriousness, are hated by many!
Anael ... I know you said you are doing your quilt blocks as scrappy. Are you keeping the strip across each block a match, so you see the weave within a block? or not necessarily?
QNSue and JanieW ... see something familiar in LilIsaBram? and John's Favourite? Thank you for your contributions!!!
So patriotics are done ... now can you guess what my next twist on the PC blocks might be??
