Thanks DublB, though I'm not the only as many of the Ladies did FWS already. I'm just one of the latecomers! I did a few last June, none in the summer, and didn't really get committed til the end of September. Now I'm trying to get FWS done before we get too far into PC. I think it'd be too difficult to try to keep two colour/fabric schemes in my brain! Then last night when I went to trim up the FWS block, I tried to trim it at 8-1/2" ... hhmmmm didn't work! And then soon remembered oh yes, I'm back at FWS. However, that's kind of scary, as if I trim a PC to FWS sizes ... YIKES! A good reason to get finished FWS!! .... 21 to go!

Your blocks are great! What a great job you've done with the fussy cutting. I really like the "antique" look of the fabrics you're using.

This is a beautiful version of a dandy. It took a little while for me to see that it was the same block. I like it a lot. I'm going to try a similar version. Very creative.

Bev this comment was in reference to your dandy block.

Here are two versions of "A Dandy". Still have not decided on a material. Chris likes the gray. He says the blue and yellow looks like carnival colors. I think the gray is too close in color to each other and blurs the pattern. I am on my way to Aardvark C to possibly find some new material and then on to Lancaster county. I have reproduction 30s fabric that I am considering for this quilt but I have always wanted to do a 30s themed pattern with that fabric. decisions decisions?

Leba, yellow and blue is such a great color combination and yours is no exception. The yellow fabric is gorgeous, what fabric line is it from?

Our posts must've crisscrossed as I didn't see the second pic. Tell Chris it is hard to judge a whole quilt like this by just one block. The second color way is definitely calmer. Looking forward to your next blocks to see what you come up with.

Leba ... ITA ... it's hard to compete with yellow and blue! However, you can both win .... mix and match the five fabrics you've started with and those alone would be a great combo. And you could find lots more fabrics to go with these if you want more of a scrappy look.

ITA with OKSGlad you really can't decide based on one block. Yes, as Chris said, the first looks more carnival-like than the 2nd, but it would tone down fast if not used in every block, and would add the zip and punch you need to keep some life to the quilt.

Have fun shopping ... and perhaps when you come home you'll have found a whole different sent of fabrics and will be making a 3rd A Dandy!

One of the advantages of being late is seeing everyone's blocks--they are awesome!! Each one is beautiful. Here are my first two I hope; haven't posted pics on new site yet. Now I can't wait to see next week's beauties.
