Guess I need to get to work this week.....I'm out of blocks so have to make some....LOL!
Honchy......Just put 2 & 2 together.....You are also on the Yahoo site....well, whatever, your blocks are so good....:)
Anael.....You know I'm a fan and these blocks just keep me raving.....
janRN....I can smell those flowers.....beautiful
gardenergal....Well done......more flowers to enjoy......
I LOVE seeing what you all make....so much creativity......so many ideas.......:)
JanRN, gorgeous fabric! I can see why you changed the block and made this one!
GardnerGal, beautiful! Once the block is in the quilt nobody will notice the block isn't square.
Wendiq, thanks :D I need to go back to work too! I'm not out of blocks yet but will be soon!
Great job everyone. I envy those who have these finished. I've finished Eastertide (except for the corner squares), but have not started Ella's Star.
Hang in there Jeanie! You can do it!
Well, after seeing everyone else so perfect...I post my pictures that shows problems, but not changing mine. I tried paper piecing, but not much better luck, so I winged the other side...Attachment 330542Attachment 330543Twins, this week. Less challenging blocks coming up, I have worked ahead a bit and having fun with Flying Cloud.
Yeah it's Wednesday!! Gonna dash and get my blocks started.
Anael--beautiful color contrast in your Easter block and look "snow" horses. Visited with the Dutch connection this weekend and they said they had lots of snow this year.
Jan-love how the green slows down the color in those hyacinths--what a nice substitute. I think it's neat that we feel we can use something else for whatever reason. The second block has an Oriental feel to me.
GGal your color combos are very unique and showcase both blocks very well. Color placement of those 2 small triangles change the look of the 2nd block, don't they?
QNS-wonderful interpretation fo Eastertide. I too have chosen "wood" in the center of my block--wonder where I snatched that fabric from (lol)? The star fabric in Anael's looks the same in block 2. Again we see how fabric placement changes the block.
Now off to the sewing room for sure!
Wow look at everybody's blocks!
Anael - I love your mint & blue in ET & I do think of snow when I see your ES. Perfect points!
Jan - Hyacinthes do represent Easter, & a great way ta remember your DF. What a great substitute for ET. The blues & white make those oriental flowers shine. Nice blocks!
GG - Oh, I love how your sashing & cornerstones are lookin'! I love those FC flowers & ya picked the perfect accent fabrics for each one!
QNS - When ya put your blocks in with the other blocks ya won't notice any small imperfections. Don't sweat it. Your colors are beautiful & all i saw at first was the horses! Had ta look really hard ta see anything wrong. (I have a very large monitor that makes the blocks bigger than they are IRL.) I see that you & Aneal have the same blue star fabric in ES. I think that I'll use it to 'cause it is so pretty in both of your blocks.
I'm gonna print out my Freezer Paper & pick out fabric tanight. I plan on sewing tamarrow afternoon.
QNSue ... I like how your Easter horses look like they are charging as a group, and then scattering in every direction! Then some 4th of July horses .... the whole family, I am sure! :)
Everyones blocks are so beautiful and I am so envious of those perfect rascally corners. I tried and tried and tried to set the seam but it was such a tiny seam that I ended up sewing it in by hand. My first time at hand piecing, will wonders never cease. They are definitely not perfect but as the saying goes "I'll quilt it out"
They look worse up close like that, I may just redo them..:mad:
