    Me too. I thought I'd be back in the swing, but just not yet...got one done last week, so I'll try to catch up over the couple week break we have. Moving, Christmas, sending packages, all the stuff that goes with it has made time go by very quickly. Still need to finish my valances in the living room, sewing room and my dust ruffle. Then I should be good to go.

    Cute block, Anne. QNS, love those blocks in Christmas fabric--what a surprise. I got an email from BackSide Fabrics; they have 108" wide backing fabric in 1930s prints on sale if anyone is interested. Here are my blocks for this week:Name:  35 & 36.jpg

    JanRN, this season has you singing the Blues; Love the blue colors.

    Thanks for the kind words, Pam and Jan.

    Next block takes two templates...so I guess that will be a two color block.

    Wow! Sue! That Flora is stunning!
    Jan, thanks for the tip, I'll check that out.
    Nice blocks, girls. I've printed the 2 patterns-- that's as far as I've come on this week. :-p

    The picture shows my spray starch, I don't know why, it's dry, that doesn't usually happen. Well, it must wait until the quilt is together for it to be washed.

    I always show my husband the blocks I make. He often sees my computer screen. I looked at your posts here on Tuesday, and on Wednesday when I showed him this new block, Flora, he exclaimed, "Oh! Someone else just used that pattern too!" That made me laugh!

    Thanks. The strips and center are Jenny Beyer fabric. So often her fabrics have such intricate designs.

    I have noticed a J Beyer look to your blocks and fabric selections...they add elegance to your blocks, givio...

    Good job, Katybob. I do not even have this week's blocks cut out yet, as I reorganized my closets...including the one in the quilt room. But Honchey has not posted it yet, so maybe we have some extra time?

    Very nice blocks, Katy. Teal is my favorite color.

    That yellow fabric is darling! I agree, the white looks good with your teal. Are you planning to set in white like the book shows? I've decided to set the blocks in color.

    Thanks, everyone. I like the white, too. I've been reluctant to use white since I've assumed the sashing will be white, so now I may change my mind about that. Right now I can't imagine what color would play well with all the blocks.

    I'm so curious what GrannyQ will use to set her green blocks. Will it be a green or cream fabric to keep the whole top monochromatic? Or, maybe pink or pale yellow! :-) I love pink and green together.
