    Dear G.

    You know where to find me and you are very welcome at any time! :-)

    The center block is not quite as dark in real. I collected 1930`s prints for more than a year and the great thing is that most of them coordinate.
    I started with purple in the middle. First round in medium purple, second light purple. Then blue, green, yellow, orange and red. Also first row medium color, second light, orange only one row.

    I started to sew the blocks together and it is terrible tricky to get accurate half inch sashings and corner stones......it will take me forever. I am sure glad I made each block with the according sashing and my experience with minis helps me with the cornerstones.
    Greetings, T.

    All of the good descriptive words have been used already....so i will just say WOW !! and Congratulations !! I think given your incredible work and obvious color savvy - you will make the best possible choice for the triangles. Please please be sure to show us the finished quilt.
