    I have Mary done. Mary Gray is cut and ready to sew (at some point in the near future I hope).

    Thanks ladies, I normally try to stick to the colors in the book but I have been waiting to use that cherry fabric. Love the way you blue batiks complement each other Jan. Pretty!

    JanRN, that red looks like jello to me; lovely indeed. And the blue takes my breathe away. Beautiful.

    Pam P, I really like your cherry fabric with the other colors. Very pretty!

    JanRN, both of your blocks are so pretty. Pretty batiks!

    I did not do any sewing today, due to my appointment and long travel time. Tomorrow is another day!

    QuiltingNinaSue, slowly but surely. Beautifully too!

    Pam P that is a very pretty block. It does look easier than some have been. I am glad too. lol.. I finally got my Martha block posted on the last one, but the past images that was on there I don't see anymore.

    I feel at least a bit caught up on where we are right now, and will be able to hopefully get these next two done during the normal time. Ok, I have fun no matter what with them, but I love being able to jump right in there with the rest of you. lol.... I am actually starting a new med soon that is a big girl med lol so if it doesn't go well, I might be 5 years getting mine done. (just joking though). It would be 5 years of working on something I love.

    Buddy's mom, you should be able to see them now. There was a problem earlier for everyone I think, but I can see them now.

    I found that to be the case when using my phone today but on the computer I can see them. I know this problem has been widespread. I don't know what caused it though.

    I have my fabric picked out for my next block. Hope to begin it tomorrow, and the other one finished too before the next week. We will see.

    I enjoyed making these two. We haven't had a really difficult block in several weeks. That's a relief! Have any of you started thinking about sashing fabric? I know we have plenty of time to decide, but I've been playing around with gray or maybe robin's egg blue. Pink would work with the 30's fabric, but I don't think I want that much pink in the quilt. After all that being said, I'll probably end up with white!

    Katybob, I have a matching set of prints chosen for Mary Gray too! We had the same idea. :-) I hope to get caught up this weekend... lagging behind again....

    How many posts do you get on one page? Are you missing the pictures at Posts 2 and 5? Mine is set to display 20 posts per page and I can see all the pictures.

    I should have my Mary finished today to post, and start Mary Gray. I was working on sewing two tiny pieces together when I started just to see they didn't come out with a complete coverage by a fraction all due to my trying to save fabric which was silly on such a tiny piece. I have found out that is more likely to happen with the triangles. I have learned my lesson. It was no big deal, but I could have had more sewn by not being so frugal. lol...

    I really like this block, and the Mary Gray looks interesting too.

    I really like how blocks are different in some way that makes the next one I come to interesting, and not just doing the same one over and over. Now I understand why samplers are so much fun to work on.

    I noticed a couple of times mine were off by that fraction because I sewed them together different than the way I cut them. when this happened it was always triangles. I now turn them several times to make sure they cover.

    Here's my Mary Gray. What an easy, fun pattern this one was! I decided to use 2 fabrics/colors for the background. I used the wrong pattern piece when I was cutting the background fabric, so I made a second block to use up those pieces. I'll only use one of the blocks in my FW quilt.

    Very pretty blocks, Givio. I was just reading about the quilt layouts and since I'm making all the blocks, I'll probably be making the queen size and that one takes 94 blocks, so I can choose which five to eliminate. Although I'm making it, I have a feeling one of next week's blocks, May, won't make the cut. I'm reminded of JanRN's comments about Y-seams.
