    The FWS 30's Quiltalong Week 22 Block #43 Hope & Block #44 Iris

    Hi Everyone, I can't believe how time flies. 2 more weeks and it will be 6 months into this quiltalong...

    These are my Hope & Iris blocks but as you can see Hope is backwards. Not sure if I'll leave it or re due??

    I'll bat lead off here, Anne. Surprise--these are not Hope & Iris. I just didn't love those blocks so found some to substitute that I like. Anxious to see what everyone else did with these.Name:  FW 43& 44.jpg

    Buddy's mom, we were posting at the same time. I like your blocks--I just couldn't get them to work in batiks. As for backwards, no such thing--flowers grow in all directions. Great job & fabric choices.

    Great job. Ladies and a hard act to follow. Just have the Hope block done; I am cooking for the 'pot luck' tomorrow...Pork loin with apples and brown sugar, Green beans in Dutch Over with bacon,, and Sweet potatoes with apples, broan sugar and butter. And Cinnamon Rolls.

    I love watching all the variations that pop up whether it's in the fabric or different blocks....

    I can't think it will matter if a block is backwards or not because they look nice either way. Stars are always looking good in Christmas prints. :-) That Scottie print is a winner too-- how cute is that! I have to get busy, I'm behind again.

    Pam, those little Scotties are precious and JanRN, your batiks are so pretty. You're right -- I like your tulip much better than this week's iris.

    Hope and Iris

    Idid it I did it I did it....I'm caught up except for a few back in Sept. that I will work on in the next few weeks. But I'm caught up here, and can now work on a couple other projects to catch up on. I do hate being so far behind, but can't help it when you move cross country. Thanks for all the other compliments on the posts I added yesterday. Katie

    I think once you get the iris set without the seam allowances exposed you will like the block better..just saying..

    I'm paper piecing and some of the blocks are backwards, but since my printer isn't fancy enough to mirror image print and after fiddling around with retracing the block pattern, I decided nobody will know they're backwards but us.

    same here and I tried once to change the block (can't remember which one) but it was too much trouble for me (don't really have those skills) so I'm with katybob, I just make it how it ends up. I have a LOT of catching up to do too.

    Hi, I'm confused, this block does not need to be mirror imaged, just rotated to the right. right???

    Pam P, maybe it was the Daffodil block? Rotating Hope, it will be the same... I agree with katybob-- the blocks will only seem backwards to us because we saw them originally the other way.

    Well I did re due my one block and it's the right way this time. When everyone started this did you start with the first block in the book? Just want to try and catch up. Thanks.
