    The FWS 30's Quiltalong week 44 Block 87 Prudence & Block 88 Rosemary

    Good Morning Ladies, I'm on time for a change

    Taking a look at these two blocks all I can say is "Phew" about Prudence and Rosemary has a lot of seams but seems to be straight forward..

    Anyone have them done??

    Those are gorgeous, Jan! Those blue batiks are so soothing. I haven't even looked at mine yet. Maybe today...

    I love those blue batiks, too. Wish I'd followed Jan's lead and made a different block instead of Prudence. That one's a mess and won't make the cut when I finally put the quilt together.

    Those are great, katybob. When you turn Prudence on point she looks perfect!

    Didn't realize Jan had made a sub. Still haven't looked at the blocks. I've been distracted by row patterns and license plates! Someone on another thread got me thinking about tent camping and road tripping for rows!

    Ok, here they are. I spent a ridiculous amount of time on these two blocks. And Prudence! What sadistic mind thought up that block. It's the hardest one yet. If any block in this book were to be skipped, it ought to be this one!! Tons of unpicking and retrying... I felt as though I deserved a big bowl of ice cream just for getting it done. Seriously, this block caused me to look through the rest of the book to see if there was anything else as painful coming up. Hated it.... and I also inadvertently used the print for the background and the solid for the contrast, opposite of what I intended. Oops. Anyway, that mother is done.

    Rosemary was just time consuming.

    But they turned out great, SBG. And you learned a valuable lesson: skip this one next time LOL!

    My sentiments exactly, SBG! And did you say "next time", Jan? Nope!

Size:  75.6 KBPrudence and Rosemary done. Next two are done also.

    I failed to get email from the monitors to change my password, so could not post from new computer...they failed to respond for a plea for help on Tuesday through Friday....I know they were busy and I had some problems with knowing what was new. email... issues on windows ten I think. I was so disappointed not to hear from them. Some one dropped the ball somewhere. Hope to get all set up before I change when this project closes down.

    Great blocks, QNS! I'm pretty sure your Prudence is next week's Ruby (#89), but if you did that on purpose -- good idea!

    SBG your two blocks are very pretty. I can see how the first one would be a bugger.

    QNS your blocks are pretty, and most everyone is almost finished with their pretty blocks.

    Welcome back, QNS. Sorry you didn't get any help from the moderators. I don't know what to suggest.

    Your blocks are lovely.
