    QE--a couple more great blocks! Your phone has good contrast...the words remind me of a phone cord.

    Thanks Everyone! .... though the full speed churning didn't happen yesterday. By the time I got back from looking for the backing and getting my new glasses, my eyes were just out of it. They were so dry and sore that I knew sewing was out of the question!

    ... even though my blocks have stayed on the design wall, I find I don't remember what I have done before, so I totally understand what you're saying!

    DublB ... Yes, I did hesitate. What I really like is how the one main colour is tying together the jumble of the scrappy look, that wasn't happening with the FWS as I had absolutely no consistency!

    JanRN ... ITA the words meandering in the telelphone fabric help with the movement. And too, with the bigger pieces, I knew it was a way to use this fabric, so the words would show.

    CarrieM ... Never thought about the telephone cord look, but yes, it does!

    Sorry QE I'm so trying to visualize Sunshine Sam with a gun in his hands. Or is it an evil diabolic Sam laughing sardonically? Or better yet a man of law and order making life all sunny for the Western folk. Okay I am off now.

    I know ... I just couldn't resist the irony!
    The fabric had The Outlaw printed with our man ... you can see part of that in the corner of the block.
    Fabric acquired thru our swap ... maybe the original owner has a story!

    Beautiful blocks as usual everyone. My Sunshine is done. Used some fabric I picked up on Thursday night. I have the owl in 414-sunshine-may-10-2014.jpg different colourways. Also picked up batik skulls in 3 colourways.

    JeanieG - thanks. Fabric.com Search for owl batik in case the link doesn't work.
    https://www.fabric.com/SearchResults...3-26a376046a5e
    dublb - thanks. there were several different owls to choose from for the fussy cutting but this guy just called to me.
    QuiltE - thanks. This is the fabric with the least colour. The link above should give an idea of the other colours. And search under skull batik for the other fabric. I'm having a terrible time. This is such a chore.
    Anael - thanks. Funny, but it is not a favourite of mine, except for the fussy cut sleepy owl. I guess there isn't as much contrast as I would have liked. But that is not a bad thing and the block is growing on me.
