    Kathy I love your block and yet another way to do the sewing, the razzle works well in the machine then. It looks great to me by the way.

    Debbi beautiful block and your material adds a different touch and its beautiful and I like your background fabric choice

    See, I knew that everyone's blocks would look really pretty, and they do. Kathy, your reverse embroidery really came out well, I couldn't see a wobble anywhere.

    Debbie, I am really envious of your border print I looked all over the place for one and couldn't find anything suitable, so I am appliqueing my own and finding it more boring than making blocks!

    Oooo! So pretty is your block. Fancy fussy cutting, too!!!

    Luv, I think I like the border fabric. It might be too soon to tell, though., but I like the fabric.

    Aren't these little blocks so cute? When we first decided to do this quilt, I thought, "Seven inch squares, hmm, that seems huge compared to our little 4 1/2" DJ blocks." So, now, they don't seem so big, but I'm enjoying their size.

    I'm having small heart attacks here. Everyone's blocks are looking so wonderful.....which tells me that I still have to practice more. Kathy, your bobbin work is fantastic and I just love the look of the Razzle Dazzle. And Luv? I think your fabric looks perfect. Wow, what a great print.

    If you are referring to the Ricky Tims thread I am sure Patti bought in on line. If you Google "Razzle Dazzle Thread" I am sure you will get loads of people who sell it.

    If you want to know what I used, it was DMC stranded thread/floss, shade 742, and I'm using two strands at a time, and stem stitch to do the embroidery.

    Yes, I just Binged Razzle Dazzle and the best price that I found was at softexpressions.com. They were great to order from too! But...lots of places have it. Its pricey though and a bit hard to handle if you are going to embroider with it by hand.

    Re-posting my Block (. I discovered that I had outlined one heart with Razzle Dazzle & not the other 4. Aie didn't outline any of her hearts. So do I take out the outline on the one or stitch an outline on the other 3? As you can see, I stitched the other three - much easier than taking out all those teeny, tiny stitches!!!

    Hi everyone,
    First day back at my desktop computer. My head is a little fuzzy but seems good to spend time on the board. My left hip replacement went well. I have been home since Monday. Today I have begun to stretch more time between pain medication. I am so happy to be at this stage.

    To keep track of all that y'all are doing seems a bit dizzying to me but I can ohhh and awww at your posts. And your blocks are beautiful no matter which colors you are using. :thumbup: :thumbup:
