Mirabelle--your blocks are great as always. :) I too look forward to seeing them all together.
Jan--yes, the fabric I used is an orange/rust color. Your blocks look great. I especially like the butterfly...it is very similar to a fabric I will be buying in the next week or two from a line called "shimmer" (http://www.ttfabrics.net/cgi-bin/fab...i?Category=710) I love butterflies and plan to use this to make a 4-patch kaleidoscope.
DDamsel--I like your fabrics too...paisleys are another weakness of mine in the fabric dept. LOL I am not crazy about snakes either. I was curious what kinds of snake patterns there were and found two different things you might to check out: http://www.trianglesonaroll.com/snakes.aspx and http://www.artprojectsforkids.org/20...-template.html Maybe you found something already, but thought I would share. :)
Honchey--great ice cream bowl! Love all the "flavor" options.
Oh what fun blocks, everyone.
Carrie both blocks are just lovely. Sorry the pic of the Compass wasn't true to life. I have that cream/blue and know it's a much darker block. Center points meet so nicely in it.
DD, no barbed wire, but these awesome paisleys are fantastic. Yeah right Hot off the machine!! "Snake's alive".
Anne-perfect toppings; perfect pieces!
Jan spot on the FC of the BF's, and no QE it's Blue Bunny's Bordeaux Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream. My personal favorite
Like QE and others I have been detained once again this week. Looking forward to July and maybe some sewing time. Meanwhile be on the look out for Life is like a box of chocolates, coming to a thread near you.

You're too funny on the quote! ...... I saw one the other day on a sign that I thought was oh so perfect for quilters and dang it all anyway, I can't remember it at all! :)
I think I'm going into withdrawal and my sewing machine will soon forget me.
Lovely blocks from everyone.
carriem, love the floral in HT, very, very pretty! Your mariner's compass looks great!! That's on my to do list.
mirabelle, lovely blocks, beautiful! I like the 'x' your fabric placement made.
deranged_damsel, great job, love the fabrics. Look forward to your snake block.
Honchey, such pretty colors in your dot fabric, great job!
JanRN, Oh, I love the butterflies and the colors, stunning!!! Beautiful ice cream block too, love the cherry color!
Just finished mine today.
Thanks everyone for your nice comments. Yinz keep me plugging away at these blocks.
Termi, great blocks. Home Treasures is very "western" and your Ice Cream Bowl has me craving ice cream with cherries and sprinkles! Nice work on both of them.
thanks to all for the encouragement and compliments :D some days I wish I was doing novelty prints as well... there is always next quilt right? ;)
Hey ya'll - Lovely blocks!!! "The faster I go the behinder I git." Yet I can't git enough of all of ya'll's blocks.
Termi--I like your blocks...great job! I am thinking some ice cream is sounding pretty good right now. :)
Oh yes carrie - I am craving ice cream right now too! Beautiful blocks everyone, you all did a great job!
Ok, Jeanie, where do you get the ream of newspaper print from...is it heavier than the doodle pad paper??? I'm tired of paying $2/60 sheets and having to cut them too! I also purchased the packing paper and it's a pain to get it all lined up. The wheels are turning and I'm thinking about future projects....H.
