    OK I love your blocks. It's good to be a rebel sometimes. I have 2 "personal" blocks in my FWS: one is PennState fabrics and the other is dog paw prints for my dog, Patches. They blend in with all the others. Your quilt is going to be a beauty!
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    Welcome aboard davef! 20 blocks? Great start. It's taken me a while to get to where I'm at; taking this at my pace which works for me.

    imdelagarza62, don't be intimidated! Just take your time. They are only pieces of fabric and if it doesn't work out the way you like, make another one and move on.
    We have no quilt police here, but one tip that will prove helpful is to use contrast in your fabric selections so that the design of the patchwork comes through.

    Just take your time with it. This isn't a race and there is no time limit. Give it a try and if you don't like it then you can stop. It is a lot of fun though!

    Thanks, Jan. Hope life is calming down for you. DH and I are now parentless, so I know how your life has been.

    Smile Farmers wife Blocks 21 and 22

    Here is my blocks 21 and 22. 22 was definitely a bugger for me to do.

    Bugger or not you've done a nice job of both. On 22, instead of following block recommendations, I think if I would've made a center 4 patch of the one big triangle and 4 smaller triangles x 4, then sewn 4 flying geese blocks and added the smaller triangles onto the ends and put the final corner triangles on, the block would've gone together better.

    Stop it! Stop it! You're posting too fast. I can't get my breath. I may pass out seeing all these lovely blocks in succession!

    I have this rope in my hands. I can't figure out whether I found a rope or lost my horse.
