    My block 11. I did the embroidery on the green before adding it onto the black, but you could do it after, once the black has been trimmed away.

    I put the flower in the middle of my background (and cut a way behind, as before)

    These are beautiful blocks! I think the embroidery adds so much to the design!

    Yes, to me they look rather 'undressed' without the embroidery.

    What a great idea to do the embroidery on "itself" so to speak before adding it to the backgroun. How did you get so smart Lesley?

    Yea, it's fun playing & fondling the fabrics, but also scary as I think about just how many I actually have - very scary!!! I think I could make 100 of these quilts & not even make a dent in my batiks.

    Ah, but very nice to have that many to choose from. The thing is that really it is lovely to have a large choice, but often we only need little bits. I had a few 5in squares, and I have used several of those already. I suppose the ideal would be to have lots of fat 8ths.

    Kathy, that one is sooo pretty! All these little blocks just seem to sparkle..aren't they great?? Love it!

    My LQS sells these little packets called 911 paks. They contain fabrics that go together, there are 11 (I think) pieces in each one and they are cut 9" x 11". Funnily enough, I had one of those paks (I buy them to give as gifts) in my AOTH colors. I've used several of the pieces already. I think I'll have to look for another one. They originally did it for appliquer's emergencies..you know when you just need a snippet of something in just the right colors? I know they are fairly expensive- $9.11..but they are great to have around!

    Kathy, I am totally in love with your block! It's absolutely gorgeous. I wish I could just reach in through the screen and grab it.

    Patti that sounds like a great idea to have fabric cut in little pieces.

    All the blocks are really looking scrumptious, I love them all, each one is going to be so individual when its all put together.

    Why don't you spread those wings & fly over here - I'm just a bit south of you, you know - in New Mexico - in the armpit of Texas.

    I tried making those brownies with the chocolate chip cookie dough in them - you know the ones with the globs!

    Cheated - big time - box brownies & tube of cookie dough. Think next time I may gently fold the globs into the batter instead of placing them on the top - didn't sink in like I thought they should. WalMart had Pillsbury brownie mix for $1 - should have bought a case! They also have their Great Value brand of cookie dough!, so this batch was under $3. Really yummy, but I wanna try the other way, too, for comparison.

    If you start out first thing in the morning, you should be here just in time for dinner.

    Oh, I'm so slow! I just now caught up on this thread. You know, it isn't so very far fetched about going out to NM. Of course, this Ducky has put on a few extra pounds and it would be very hard to lift off the ground -- but I'd consider driving.

    How did your brownies turn out? Actually, I got the idea from some kind of boxed mix (cannot remember what brand). I thought that it couldn't be too hard to do, right? So I bought brownie mix and made a batch of cookie dough and "globbed". The dough did want to sit on top instead of sinking into the brownie mix, so I pushed it in. I will caution, though, they are addicting!!!! (Part of the reason this Ducky can't get off the ground!)
