    I am looking forward to seeing the finish quilt. Your blocks are awesome.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Great blocks! I have yet to try it myself and love the blocks that can be made that way.
    Live and let live!

    You sure did beautiful work with these you made. I think you have the hang of it for sure.
