    The FWS 30's Quiltalong Week 43 Block 85 Primrose & Block 86 Priscilla

    Hi Everyone, I did it again

    I have Priscilla printed out..Primrose reminds me of a Flock of Birds in a previous quiltalong and will not be doing this one...
    I'm sure there will be some blocks done from you?

    QNS both of your blocks are pretty. I also like that rose fabric. I have some rose fabric similar to that.

    Believe it or not I have started my Priscilla. I should have it finished later this evening. I decided to do the one that looked like the quickest to finish since I am so far behind.

    I really do prefer calling these blocks our little gems, because of some that have a gazillion pieces that when done makes me just sit back looking at it.

    Your blocks are wonderful. Two more very pretty batik gems. I don't know which block colors I like best.

    To me Primrose had to be a Rose with thorns, of course! Iowa canoe has a turtle cove in the center if you look close... Trying to do Ruby and feel real good about finishing all the blocks and no more projects from this lady author or compiler! They are alll copied from somewhere that is no where close to machine quilting. Her photos do not agree with the pp layout, and her templates are numbered and lettered but Lord help you try to figure out which piece goes Where? Her block picture needs the letters on it also...and the pp needs to match what it says. So happy for you'alls help or I would never have finished one....and we are closing on the thrid one! Wow. I think I might have been crazy to attempt it in the first place!

    Jan and NinaSue, your blocks are gorgeous. Love Nina's fabrics and the batiks Jan used. I just love the way 'birds in flight' looks. Will probably start mine tonight.

    Ok, here are mine. It's not midnight yet so I'm still on time!

    Primrose took forever with all those tiny pieces, but it's really a cool block. Using her templates for PP, I had to cut down the center diagonal piece or it would have made my block come out too big. I thought that was strange... another error?

    then Priscilla seemed to go together in a snap, following Primrose! I think I'm going to lose some points when I put these together, as Priscilla came out a big large too and had to be trimmed.

    Drat! I wish I'd picked fabric with roses for Primrose. I didn't think of it til I saw QNS's block. I, too, think this is probably the last Laurie Hird quilt I'll make, although I've learned to say "never say never". I do love sampler quilts, little blocks, and sew-alongs, and I seem to be a glutton for punishment -- I've made 3 Dear Janes. Love everyone's blocks this week. SBG, that fabric in Priscilla really caught my eye.

    And I love your blue with elephants! If you have a bunch of it left, maybe we could trade a 10" square-- my Priscilla print and your elephants?

    Then we could have a bit of each other in our quilts... ha ha.

    Pretty blocks ladies! I know I have been MIA for a few weeks and will be for a couple more due to work and family issues. I am enjoying checking out the new blocks though and dreaming about catching up again.

    Thanks SBG, I do try to look every day , just s little overwhelmed right now. Nothing major going on I'm just not very good at having a lot of different irons in the fire. When I see what everyone else can accomplish in a day I am envious!

    I have my Priscilla done, but I am having trouble with my computer uploading my pics from my card.

    Katy I love both of your blocks.

    Pam P it is good to see you. I feel the same, but it's mostly so much with family, and I am so slow for all my usual reasons. I have my wonderful book, I have lots of pretty stash to use from. I have a wonderful friend that twice has sent me her left over scraps from quilts she makes, and even included some bigger pieces this time, and a little bundle I did not expect. She sent me a white sheet that I can use for backing. I don't throw anything away, and have some little baggies I put too small pieces etc. that I can fill for little beds for my doggies.

    I am just trying to make a block as I can, and enjoying everyone else's. When the others finish their beautiful blocks, I will still post pictures of the ones as I finish mine as long as they leave those weeks up.

    Have a great day everyone, and I hope to get my husband's help in getting my picture up of my finished block.

    I love you all !

    Ok here is my Priscilla, but I got off kilter in the middle. I will be redoing it before putting it in my quilt at the end.
    I should have pinned it before sewing. Another one learned. I pinned a lot of the rest of it.
