    JeannieG, what beautiful blocks!! Nice job on both!

    QuiltE, I see you nailed D&D AND EF. I love the deer in D&D and the colors in both blocks are beautiful!! Great job!!
    I actually did finish D&D and it looks right to me but who knows. If you see any colors out of place please don't tell me. Will post picts later.

    Aww gee, Thanks Everyone ... though my Elsie's is not near so spectacular as those that got their curves so smooth and even.
    I sure need LOTS of practice on THAT technique!!

    Oh, Wow! Everybody's blocks are awesome! Those curves look very intimidating. I'm not sure when I'll git to 'em.

    I did not think they were as hard as I anticipated. I aligned the middle of each piece, then started stitching in the middle. I gently pulled the two sides together as I stitched. I used my 1/4" foot, but had also marked the 1/4" line on the pieces. They seemed to come together very easily. I pinned the 1st one, and it was really wonky, so I tore it out and just held the pieces together and slowly sewed.

    JeanieG, I did my EF exactly the way you did. I found that if I used pins it came out worse than if I just held the pieces together and sewed very slowly.

    Finally, here are mine for the week. I find that if I use Best Press when the block is finished, the fabric gets wavy. Does anyone know why?

    QuiltE, I see nothing wrong with your curves, they look perfect!

    Termi ... I've had the waves happen with some of my yellow. I was blaming it on the fact that it was a batik. And too, have thought that perhaps the iron was too hot as it doesn't happen all the time and does not seem to be happening to my regular quilting cottons. I've started to use BP, but have NOT used it on the PC yet (trying to use up stash of spray starch). So I don't think it's the BP to blame .... and I have been able to get the waves pressed out, eventually.

    Wonder? try a spritz of water, and then press those waves out?

    Great fabric choices for both blocks. The subtlety of D+D works! And love the FUN in Elsie's! Your curves are more than perfect!

    Here are mine for this week. I finally figured out why EF was so difficult but only after I was done. There are no dots to match up when easing the outside pieces onto the block. If the first piece is cockeyed, it all goes downhill from there. I'm singing the same song as I heard about this block, "the quilting will take care of the ruffles." I looked ahead and there are no more curves.

    What a perfect centre FC for Elsie's, GGal ... it really makes that centre look like it's bursting like a kaleido (if you know what I mean?). ITA the inability to have dots to match messed me up ... and I tried to mark in 1/2 and 1/4 but of course that didn't work, as the outside section was longer. So back to just easing it into place. The B+W is a great combo for D+D and the dimensions it creates.

    And oh so nice with your sashing!

    I also had a hard time sewing Elsie's favorite. I had to do it a second time. That old seam ripper is getting a lot of use by me lately. This is the last of my blocks for now. I will also post my first 30.
    Right now I'm trying to get one of th GS quilt done. I still have 3 more GS to do yet. I would like to get them finished for Christmas but don't know if I will.

    I'm still getting caught up on all the blocks. Each and everyone of you has done an outstanding job. I also thought the curves were a little awkward. Hoping sashing and quilting will tame them. What a difference fabric choices make in these blocks--they're all just beautiful.
