    Thanks everyone for the compliments.

    Elle, That is the Pearl Crown Rayon that I got a while back and did to practice one of the AOTH blocks on my dark blue background. It is wonderful to work with and I thought on this particular block worked well. It sort of faded into the flower fabrics on my other block and I decided that even though I will probably use the Pearl Crown Rayon I don't think for my AOTH blocks I will use the variegated but rather will probably buy gold. I think they have a pretty gold color. They have another lighter variegated if you're interested in it but this one was their Bright Pastel.

    Lovely block Judy - I assume you have used the small zig zag stitch? I need to go back and look at Kathy's tute again.

    Beautiful, Judy. I love it. Did you hand embroider or by machine?

    I did the embroidery by hand. This is a very thick thread. In fact it sort of stands up on top of the fabric. When you look at it from the side, it almost looks like it was crocheted. I really like the thread.

    Judy, that blocks is beautiful! I really like the light background and the verigated thread used for the embroidery.

    So, you liked the machine applique? I love it. I have finished appliquing 12 of the blocks & 8 are ready to be assembled. They are all quilted & ready for their little sashings to join them. Will work on that as I feel like it.

    Thank you, Kathy. Yes, I did like the machine embroidery. But I am bound and determined that I am going to do the AOTH by hand.

    What type of quilting did you do on your blocks?

    It's awfully quiet round here - can it be just because Patti is minus a modem at the moment? Where is everyone else?

    Thank you, Carsey. It almost makes me wish I had decided on a light background. But I picked dark blue for AOTH and dark blue it will be.

    The light is really pretty, but I love the thought of the blue background. I'm kind of liking the denim background.

    Just saw a photo of ATOH quilt in a member's post of some quilt show photos. Check it out, it is stunning! Set on point and an awesome border too. It is towards the end of the photos.

    I was thinking about possibly setting my blocks on point, and I love her sashing.

    Wow - love the sashing and the on-point look.

    I think Patti has mentioned doing on-point, not sure if someone else has mentioned it also.

    I like the coloured sashing and her different border idea is lovely.

    Its all food for thought.

    Thanks for posting the link - It was so different, I nearly went past it - as you said, it is really food for thought.

    I love the look of it on-point. The sashing was sure pretty, too.
