    WELCOME back to the Quilting Board. I sure hope that you can get your tables set up & your machines out, as we have missed you too!! Sewing is so good for the soul & to keep our hands busy in a good way. I hope you are enjoying your new place & I look forward to see you posting more.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Thanks, SulaBug, glad you like this block. I was very friendly with my ripper after my 1st attempt, whew, boy howdy it was very ugly. Glad I didn't give up. Mary likes it, too, that's a good thing. Only need 12 more blocks, yeah!

    DJ, I really love how you used the white lace looking fabric through the center, it looks lit is truly going through the other colors!

    I think I like paper piecing but cannot believe how I struggled with this one! It was just one silly mistake after another. Just mindlessly using the wrong color in the right place for example! Or lining up the sections right but sewing down a line no where near the edge. You gotta see this one, I sent it to DH for a giggle so I have it on my phone.. just a sec, let me see if I can transfer it (new phone, no brain....) Oh, here it is:

    I mean, how could I not notice the extra inch of fabric hanging off the side? Name:  OOPS.jpg

    I re-sewed my seams several times trying to make things "perfect" and then once again realized no one is going to notice but me, so did the best I could and I consider it done! I think it's a little small again. I'm wondering how I'm going to put the quilt together -- but that is a worry for another day! Have a great weekend BOtM group!

    CAS, your blocks are always marvelous!
    Here's an additional block for Mary's big bed, kinda looks like Legion of Merit award. I appliqued the center flower patch to give it depth, hope she likes it. Just couldn't do another bold yellow!

    Cas your block turned out great! Once the paper comes off when it's ready to be put into a quilt, there will be some "fudge" allowance, right? (at least that's what I'm hoping for)

    Thanks Thimblebug, I don't think there is much allowance, hopefully at least 1/4" but my blocks are all different sizes, so I guess I'll have to add sashing in different sizes to make squares?

    DJ, I really like that, especially the center flower.

    That's pretty Sweet Caroline. Love your nickname -- do you like Neil Diamond?

    Yes, I'm wondering how we'll put them together. This is my first year doing the BOTM. I think I'll lose some of the design, cutting the edges off so I can sew it together.

    I'm back from my trip, caught up with this block, but have others to do. Hope I get all caught up with everything I need to so I can start fresh in November. Love all your blocks. Can't wait for the last two months.

    Yes, I am a Neil Diamond fan. My sashings will be black so I think I will fiddle with their sizes to make the blocks come together.

    I'm hoping to use the same background fabric also. I should have bought more "just in case". lol.

    I think Neil Diamond's "Hot August Night" is an excellent album.

    Guess I should post my picture, have had the block done for a couple weeks, keep forgetting to post it..DUH.. I struggled with it, had it put together, and just didn't look right. So, showed my buddy, CajunBear & had 2 opposite corners done wrong!! Took it apart, carefully so not to stretch edges. It was then back to the sewing machine!! Finally got it together correctly (if not it's staying that way!!) I do like how it turned out tho. That is not a border around it, it's laying on my sewing rm. carpet. ;o)

    Finished right before we left for our cruise to warmer climes. Now we're back & it's pretty chilly this morning.

    Thanks. I'm using all the same prints for all the blocks..They look neat all put together. There's a turquoise & a brown that goes with them, but couldn't use all colors on this block..
