    I'll lead the way. I still have to redo the CS but that's on the back burner for now. I was going to do all 30 but that really begins to fill up my design wall and is hard to capture without catching furniture. The picture is a little wonky because I take it with my iPad and the camera is at the curve on the back and hard to adjust for.

    Who is next?

    *gasp* GGal it looks ever so blended with some sparkle blocks, and muddy ones, too, as Laurie would call them. I really like that concept as she explained it, as it makes total sense and how to pull together scrappy-ness.

    Why don't you re-post your first 15, so we can see them all in close proximity with the 2nd 15?
    (hope you don't mind my suggesting this,
    Honchey?)


    I'm holding off on posting my group til my sashings/cornerstones are all on.
    Then from here on, that'll put me one step closer to the finish when we get there! Yeeehaw!!!

    Not at all!!! I'm looking at the blocks and they look like "which block is that??? I don't remember doing that block!!". They all take on such different "personalities" when you use different fabrics...

    WOW GGal! Your quilt will be gorgeous!

    I didn't realize we reached 30 blocks and our second Milestone! I will take a pic of my blocks tomorrow. It's too late and too dark now here.

    Honchey ... heck, I have that problem, just within the blocks for one week! different fabrics/colours/values can give such different looks and dimensions to the same patterns. Personalities, as you say!

    GGal ... you have such a nice mix of colours and "moods" ... and they all blend together so well. I'm still really attracted to the pink rose in the first set ... At the Station (I think?) ... and I say I'm not a pink person, and yet lately, pinks seem to be calling to me!

    Anael .. Have a good night's sleep!

    What a milestone! Ggal, you have such balance with all your colors, tones, shades, etc. I notice I need more yellow. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    JanRN ... oh so lovely!! and likewise to you, for your own achievements and also, the balance of your colours, tones, shades! Have you thought about your sashings yet? Maybe that's where you could put in some yellow splashes, in the cornerstones? You've really mastered PPing!!! Congratulations!!!

    It amaizes me how different these blocks look with all of the different fabrics. I like the idea of each having different personalities! How much better ya can see it when they are tagether.
    Jan - Great blocks! I agree, the only color you're missin' is Yella'. I hope ya find just the right shade.
    Quilt - The yella in your blocks just pops with that blue sashing & maroon cornerstones. Wow! Ya got a great eye for color.

    Thanks DublB ... I wanted the cornerstones to be more subtle and not pop out too much, so went with the ruby.

    Both the sashings and cornerstones are Fusions Mist ... a whole line of great blenders if you're looking for something that's got some multi-tones in them. I like them even better than the MMKrystal I used for the FWS ... we did try the Fusions, but the green had just too much yellow coming thru and looked gastly, compared to the Krystal.


    And my apologies ... looks like you got a double of the big pic! .... and by the time I realized it, it was too late to pull one off.

    I wish I could give you better pictures to look at ... and I look forward to hearing some "colour commentary" on what to work on for the coming blocks.

    wooohoooooo .... we're 1/3 done!

    Oh wow, I did not realize we were at 30 blocks already! What great looking quilts you are going to have. Gardnergal, Jan and QuiltE have led the way, lets see the rest of the gang's blocks. I'll get a photo of mine tomorrow. I've previewed several fabrics as sashings, and cannot say what color I'll use. These blocks sure do take up a lot more room on the display board than the FWS blocks don't they? I may make this into two lap size quilts like I did the FWS quilt.

    Anael ... I like how your white background has become a trend. It really brightens the overall look, and sure makes the colours pop, including the coloured backgrounds.

    Here's some of my blue for you to try for your sasahing.
    *passes Anael some of her fabric*
    Another one that comes to mind. is a rich chocolate and black mix, also from the Fusions Mist.
    Or a dark green, like the greenery in a garden ... and perfect ofr all those beautiful garden-like colours.

    Oh thanks so much QE I will certainly try the blue!
    Will have to do a search for Fusions Mist, never heard of this fabric. Sounds very good though!

    I found it. What do you all think of this as sashing?

    Anael.....Love that brown fabric. What name does it go by? I am still thinking I want to use a black with subtle design or mottled look. Haven't found what I want yet....probably won't until I'm done. I change my mind too much and am afraid to go with sashing and cornerstones just yet......
    I will try to get my blocks together today for a picture......I have made some substitutes so come up with the correct number, but not the "correct blocks".....LOL!

    It's Fusions: Mist brown by Robert Kaufman Fabrics. The Fusions: Mist line has some gorgeous fabrics!
    I didn't have all the correct blocks either as I substituted one or more too

    Wendig...Fusion also comes in a black. Kaufman has several lines of fusion and the one shown in brown is the line #12141 which is Fusion Mist.

    That fabric is gorgeous Anael, I am considering a similar fabric for mine! I love the Fusion Fabrics!

    I liked it IRL ... it looked much richer than it does here. I think it'd either be awesome ... or may come off too stark against your whites. Did you see the dark green? Mine is the darker blue ... and there's another blue, slightly lighter. Another consideration ... a dark'ish grey, but still with life in it ... not sure what colour you'd really call that? I don't know if there's one in the Fusions Mist. What I like about them, is that there's colour variance in the fabric, yet, it is subtle enough, that it doesn't compete with the busy-ness of our scrappy works!

    The Michael Miller Krystals are still lovely ... more of a true tone-on-tone than the Fusion Mists.
