    Love your flowers and butterflies QNS. Ready for summer! Here are mine. I liked Mrs. Brown but Mrs. Fay gave me fits and it is on my do over list. It is probably the most wonky block I've done so far (that I remember). But having practiced those y seams, I think the next one might turn out better for me.

    QuiltingNinaSue, your blocks are so pretty. The orange looks pretty with all the flowers. Same with the yellow and flowers. From seeing many of your pretty blocks since I began I see a very pretty. Oh I see the second one is butterflys. How pretty.

    Pam P, your blocks are so pretty. Pretty light pink and green, with the pretty flowers and what looks like little piggies. I also like your purple and yellow/gold one. The dark purple looks pretty with the lavender tiny flowers.

    I have to admit, I haven't started on these two yet.

    Thanks Susan. No hurry. I think we are all on our own timetables. I am not as far ahead as you think. I missed about 10 blocks in the middle over the holidays. I will catch those up eventually but I try to jump in where we are and then play catch up later. I do love that piggy fabric, it is both cute and pretty.

    How fun to see your pretty blocks, ladies. That piggybank fabric is just adorable! QNS I have that same green spotted fabric.

    I made mine several days ago because I knew I'd be away this week. Here they are. VERY challenging and y-seamy!Name:  DSC02398.JPG

    Love your blocks, Pam and your blocks, Sewbizgirl! Way to go!

    Thanks for all your nice words about mine. The blocks seem to 'speak' to me, I think I am going one way, but it all changes after I start picking out the colors. I had a packet of 'charms' in front of me and seen how it made the butterflies 'pop', so it when into the block! Fun times. On to the next... everyone moves at their own speed because 'Life' just happens to us all...Hope Honchy enjoys her vacation with her Sister and comes back fully charged up again.

    For some reason I can't see your blocks Sewbizgirl. I find this site is kind of touchy about that.

    Well now this morning I can see them! Must have been the user! Great job on the Y seams, you must have done those before ; ) Love the softness of your fabrics in Mrs. Brown.

    Absolutely gorgeous blocks, ladies. So different with the color choices. Great job on the y-seams. See mine? Nope, didn't do them, didn't even try. Proud of yinz and your results.Name:  67 & 68.jpg

    All great blocks and wonderful fabrics, ladies! Love your batiks, JanRN. I've been gathering batiks for a quilt my granddaughter has requested, so I've been paying a lot of attention to them. It's a Jacqueline deJonge pattern -- yikes! And SewBizGirl, you're right -- the latest blocks have been very y-seamy, but as much as I grumble about them, they're getting better with all this practice.

    Jan, your batiks are so pretty. I just love the blues and purples you use. Katybob, yours say 'spring' to me. I really like the shade of teal (or aqua?) in Mrs. Fay. I would love to have that color.

    Thanks, Pam. It's more teal than aqua. Either my little camera or the program I use to edit the pictures don't show the real colors very well. And add my thumbs up for your piggy fabric!

    Sewbizgirl both of your blocks are so pretty. One is brighter and one soft. I love them both.

    JanRN both of your blocks are so pretty with the rich blues and purples. Very nice.

    Katybob your two blocks are very pretty, and they look like they coordinate in colors. Those pretty soft yellows look so nice in each one.

    All of you did a great job on your y-seams. I will do better with a lot more practice on them I think. lol..

    Pam I just might let last weeks go, and try to be with everyone else for at least one week. So I just might start with the next ones due for next time. I will be posting my Mrs. Anderson today.

    So pretty with your small calicoes, Jeanie. I loved making Mrs. Faye (the second one).

    These directional fabrics...I'm trying to get better at placing them, but I haven't done it yet. I'm always surprised at how they end up facing. Between those and the lines being slanted, maybe I'll call this quilt Squirrely

    You are looking great morganfarm7. I have been guilty of not following up posts lately, trying to 'catch up' here.
