    The FWS 30's Quilt-Along Week 4 Blocks Augusta & Aunt

    Good Morning Ladies, It's Tuesday and you know what that means...It's "Show & Tell time" !

    Here are my blocks.. the green in Augusta is much greener than shown...I messed up when playing with the scanning options...

    Wait, shouldn't it be Augusta, or do we get another week for April?

    Here are my blocks for this week. I have been doing these two with the templates instead of PP. It does save me a lot of fabric, so I might continue with the templates.

    My picture sure is blurry this time. Maybe I moved when snapping it.

    Honchey, I love that summer swim fabric; it's just too wonderful! Beautiful blocks, ladies!!

    I'll try to get Aunt done this week. She's so easy and my fabric's all cut for her. But that may be it for a while. I have a lot on my to-do list right now. But I'll keep checking in to see how you're all doing and to hopefully add more blocks of my own.

    I'm excited, tonight, I'm going to take some 'me' time and work on these two. I have the fabric cut for Augusta, and for Aunt, I think I'll use some precut charm squares. Should make her go a bit quicker. With Any luck I'll finish Aunt tonight and make some progress on Augusta. My problem is that I get so caught up in picking out fabric, it takes forever!

    Good to see we are off ond running strong in the fourth week. Honchey love the strong colors, red and purple in Augusta; then the blue and blue plaid in Aunt in your blocks. GrannyQ comes through with her refreshing green combos. Katybob with her yellows and green in Augusta and her pink and blue in Aunt.

    I am doing each individual blocks in whatever color appeals to me at that moment in time: Auguata and Aunt:

    Great blocks everyone! I have mine done, but didn't get pics yet...I'll get DD to take pictures of blocks 7, 8, 9, and 10 so I can get this weeks up and have the others ready for next week. Then it's time to sew again.

    Beautiful blocks ladies. Honchey, I especially like you fabrics. I am a fabricholic and I don;t have those lol. I am all caught up with week three, two and one. Now for week four. I feel great today and hope to feel greater tomorrow when I tackle the next two blocks.

    Sue, your Augusta block is wild and wonderful, are those buttons or cherries on that fabric.?

    Rosy, its whatever the holder's eye sees in Augusta. Mine seen cherries or lolly pops. the old song one learned to play on a string instrument was'the birds and the bees and lolly pop trees where on top of ? mountain". Never learned that much about music, but enjoy old memories. LOL!

    Wow! They all look great! I'm loving the batiks! Might have to add some in to mine as well. Hmm... Here is my Aunt. Should finish up Augusta tonight or Thursday. I have the sections done and clipped together ready to sew. It was a nice break to have Aunt this week, but I'm finally getting workflow together so it is going much faster now. Any tips for which way to press the seams for Augusta as I'm joining pieces?

    You are so right Husky, it take me forever to choose the fabric, only because I have too much lol.

    Here is what mine looks like..some of these seam intersections are quite lumpy and I'll probably undo some of them and change the directions so they lay flat after the paper is removed..

    I hope I can finish mine up too Sue, and I have one to redo that I don't like at all. Keeping the hope alive thought, that once of these weeks I'll be able to post finish blocks the day the thread goes up.
