    JanRN your blocks are beautiful. My hubby said the first one we did looks like arrows which they do. Love your pretty rich colors. They are going to look so nice in a quilt. I have got to take my pictures. I have them done.

    Pretty, pretty! Love them in both the batiks and the 30's repros...

    Here are my two "Mrs."... I used vintage fabrics in both of them.

    I love JanRN batiks and Pam & SBG vintage fabrics... wonderful 'eye' candy. Threaded up my 550 Bernina which has better light than the older model 1540, so I can sew sew sew away...sew many projects to do!

    QNS you rock! I just learned how to paper piece and I'm a long way from redesigning the blocks. What pretty colors in those fabrics!

    I cheated, Pam. I took the pp pattern, and cut off the inner seam allowance, taped the pieces together and made bigger squares. Made the quick change without any math or drawing a re-design.

    Pam P both of your blocks are so pretty. I like the soft green and pink print. The soft yellow is pretty with the red solid and the print fabric.

    Sewbizgirl those two are delightful. Your pink is pretty with the solid and nice print. The red with print and another solid is really nice.

    Nina Sue your blocks are just so pretty. That first block with the yellow and blue flowers goes so well with the rich green and soft blue floral. Your second block is so pretty and your very own. More pretty flowers and rich colors.

    Yay... more blocks! Nina Sue, how smart to redesign... I am going to do a Civil War Sampler next and the blocks are simpler like that. I am looking forward to some easier PPing. Love your fussy cut flowers.

    Susan, your blocks are just darling; very vintage-looking. Your PPing looks really great.

    I love seeing everybody's work! Thanks for posting.

    QNS, I like your take on those green corners!
    Lots of individual fabric choices from each of you... batiks, 30's, vintage, scrappy, etc.
    I'm getting farther behind. Taking a break, I guess. *roll my eyes*

    Nice blocks Susan! The yellow in your block looks more like the one in the book and I didn't have that color. I need to get more solids I think.

    Katybob, love the colors in your blocks. I hadn't used white in any of mine yet. That is so pretty.

    Sweet blocks, Katybob! Love your colors and your piecing looks great too.

    I'm going to keep plugging along trying to catch up from the front of the book. I'm so far behind everyone, but I'm having so much fun with these that I might even catch up before long.

    Last night I was playing with HSTs... at my quilting group I have become known as the person to give your tiny scraps to! One lady handed me a big baggie stuffed with HSTs in maroon and white. Some were sewn, and some just cut. I think these may have been "bonus triangles" she cut off some bigger blocks she made. Anyway, there are enough for 12, 16-patch blocks. I decided to do a sampler of ways to put 16 HSTs together into different blocks. Waste not, want not, right? It will probably be a charity donation.

    Thank you Pam P. Part of my fabrics were in strips etc. that were given to me off the offer section on the board. They sure did come in handy for this. I had a couple of people on the board send me some fat quarters last year. One set I won, and the other was a just because. I am a waste not want not too Sewbizgirl. I have a little catcher where I sew that with little tiny pieces to little to use I store up in baggies to stuff pillows for my doggies.

    Katybob, your two blocks are just so pretty. Great job! I always like pink, and the other with the pretty green floral with the white back ground is so pretty. I haven't yet used a solid white background yet either. I first was going too, and then decided to wait a bit.

    Jeanie, I love all the blocks you've posted. I'm guessing you're home and not RVing?
