    I'll try to load blocks 51 thru 75. Too many posts or none at all.

    I'm really having a hard time tonight loading pictures. When I add a message the pictures finally show up. This is really strange.

    janRN, Thank you so much. Everyone's blocks have really been great. Lots of colors. They all look so different even though they are the same blocks. I have really enjoyed doing all of these blocks. It has really helped with this being a group effort. Thanks everyone.

    RW those blocks look great! You have really balanced your colors. Here are my 51 thru 75. I can see I need to add some red.

    They're on my design wall w/the sashing - Can't get them altogether in one shot without shooting from the side as my wall is in back of Lizzie. Plus I'm using the book layout so it's all or nothing to get 51-75 together right now. So here's a side view of the altogether so far. A top half shot, and a bottom half shot over the side of my Lizzie setup.

    Oh wow Auntjo-those look fantastic. I like your sashing-it looks brown on my computer. It really highlights your blocks. Great job.

    Jan and AuntJo, your blocks are beautiful! I have to say, without our little "sew along" here, I think I would have abandoned this project quite some time ago...so thanks ladies for helping me "stick it out"!

    Aunt Jo : I love your blocks. Your sashing looks either brown or red. What color is your little squares. and setting triangles going to be? I have used a brick red for the sashing and now I don't know what colors to use for triangles and little squares. I have finished 101 blocks but I don't have a camera to post pictures. When my DD returns from college I will ask her to help me post some pictures.

    Your blocks are great Anne! Isn't it interesting how, when you see them all on the board, you look and say it needs more of this or that? I still have no clue what to sash my blocks with...am thinking to maybe double sash them...surround with white and then another color...maybe!

    I love them all Mirabelle--really nice colors. Have you decided on your sashing color yet? Isn't this exciting? We're getting so close!

    Yes JanRN I have decided on my sashing, I did post pics a while back. It is a chocolate brown and a cream with small darker swirls. Will try and get some sewn on in the next few weeks. As soon as I finish quilting a monster quilt top for a friend (will post pics when I am finished)
    Now back to quilting :x

    Oh, boy, everyone's blocks look so great! I am having trouble finding the right sashing. I've auditioned numerous different fabrics but none have made the cut. I'll keep trying, although it looks as if "white" might be the winner. I guess that's what happens with a very limited color palette. In the meantime, here's my blocks in the third segment. Not happy with some of them, but will let it go for now. :-D
