Size:  189.6 KBReady this week and next. Too many things going on. I feel like I am at full gallop, in the fast lane, trying to go faster and faster. Reminding self, its one step at a time, one hour at a time, one stitch at a time and take a deep breath and relax. What will be, will be. Enjoy each moment, because this too shall pass.

    QNS your blocks are very pretty. The first one reminds me of a hot summer day.

    JanRN two more pretty blocks with nice contrast.

    The pink and green are some vintage fabrics I had.

    I didn't like 1930s prints before we started this ride. Yinz have changed my opinion--love those blocks SBG.

    SBG your two blocks turned out lovely. The first one looks pretty easy. Does the second one take very long? I will be gone tomorrow again so just figuring my time on everything.

    The second one has more pieces but it goes together with all nice straight seams. Didn't seem to take that long, paper piecing.

    Great blocks, everyone! JanRN, I love all your batiks. Have you given any thought yet to what you'll use for sashing? Wish I'd pressed mine a little better before I snapped the picture!

    Here are my blocks for this week. I see a huge process of cropping these in the future! I went back and took off all the paper piecing backings while watching TV over the past few weeks. I sure have a huge pile of blocks. I definitely think I'll be making this into two lap size quilts, as I have done with the other FWS quilts. I certainly don't need to add another large quilt to the mix.

    Such pretty blocks this week Ladies

    Jan, your blocks look like a picture out of a book. so very precise!

    QNS, it amazes me that you get any sewing done at all with all you do...

    Katybob, love the colors in your blocks

    Sewbizgirl, YOU made the blocks so pretty, love the color combos.

    Jeannie, Yor blocks as well are pretty and so well done...

    I feel like a mother hen with all my chicks doing me proud.. Love you guys...

    Had the windows open 2 nites in a row..after today they get closed again...Please take care all of you with this pending heat wave..some of you may already be experiencing it right now..

    Sewbiz, I gave up jiggling the bed when DH snores so I get up early and nap in the afternoon...

    Have a great day all of you

    Beautiful blocks everyone. Katybob, I'm using black sashing with pale yellow swirly cornerstones and inner border. My outer border is black with some different color swirls. Thought it would pull all the colors together but it looks like something the dog threw up.

    No ripping, QNS. This one will go in The Box That Shall Never Be Opened.
