    Love that block and fabrics keely. I think I have already said that I have some of this same fabric. I haven't cut it yet, just keeping it for something special.

    The color isn't quite this bright. But at least it's not all green again.
    Nice block Keelybird! I like the blue, it really sets off the design nicely.

    Can y'all believe that I haven't started next week's block yet?!? ;-) Someone else is going to have to be the early bird tomorrow! I am starting tonight though, so I will get it done next week...

    Had a really busy week - our house is now under contract! So everything is falling into place for our move this summer.

    Congrats about the house being under contract Obsessed. You will have lots to do with a move coming up.

    Are you moving to another town? or just up or down to re-size the family homestead? I don't envy you the packing, tho it is fun to unpack in a new place.

    I don't have my blocks finished yet... 1.5 hrs before the deadline and here I sit, playing computer games! lol Someday I will get my priorities in some sort of order.

    hugs, Jup

    O.K. it's Monday morning here and no-one has posted so it looks like I have to be first.

    I debated about my fabrics for the little squares on this one until I got tired thinking about whether they were leaves or buds. Then decided I liked this one. Having had both kids married in the last couple of years, somehow this fabric gave my nosegay a wedding bouquet feeling. But that might just be me. ;)

    DeeCee,
    Your nosegay is beautiful. I love your colors. Here's mine. I wish I hadn't used the stripe here.

    Irene, I think your fussy cutting looks great on those little squares. Were'nt they just a pain to do! Stripes can sometimes be a pain also, but I like your stripe fabric.

    I'm staring hard at your block 'cos I think you did the centre in one piece. Is that right? If so, that was clever of you.

    Deecee and Irene - those are beautiful nosegays! I love the fussy cutting that you both did. Deecee - my "flowers" are yellow and red as well, with green leaves - so our blocks have a somewhat similar look. Great minds think alike once again!

    Mine is glued down and the stitching has begun. I hope to post later today or tomorrow depending on how things go.

    Hi Deecee,
    I'm not sure I understand what you mean about my center. I just followed the instructions. I sewed all those stripe pieces on top of the square. And yes, those fussy cuts were definitely a pain. I'm learning a lot from doing these blocks, mainly how NOT to do things, haha.
