    JanieW...I love the stars sprinkled in the second block. They tie it together while the colors give great contrast. Eastertide is beautiful and very well done.

    Well I finally finished this weeks blocks. Eastertide was easy, except for those corners. I PP this block. My hint for those still working on it is to take off the paper and draw the sewing lines on the back of the corner piece. I wanted those lines to follow! Thanks to all those with the hints, and tutorials, they really helped. Mirabelle and I used the same "donated" fabric for the cross! LOL

    Great job, Jeanie G. I did not notice the cross fabric until you spoke of it. Happy it worked out for you. Love your block construction and the colors used in each block.

    Well QNS's inspirations have sure come to the forefront. mirabelle-your cross looks great with your fabrics and Jeanie's too. Great FC those ponies, too.
    Janie your blues are icy hot!!
    No I haven't made the ice cream bowl, Anael, but that's one I might like to have in mine just cuz it's ice cream. We'll see.

    thanks everyone for the compliments. It's been a rough week. My favourite uncle died yesterday. I know it's part of life, but it's still hard.

    Bev, you can do it!

    Did anyone make the ice cream bowl already? I don't like that one at all, so I think I'm going to replace that one too. From the moment I saw that block I had no idea what to do with it. Besides the fact that to me it doesn't look like an ice cream bowl at all I can't get my head around colors for this one.
    I'm not gonna do the Ice Cream bowl either. My red cream & blue just won't work with it. It looks challengin'. I can see just how I wanted ta do it. I also don't think I can work my fabrics with Fishing Boats, Village School House, Pansy, Sugar Bowl, Telephone......& others. I should have waited ta pick my fabrics till after I got my book.

    Oh wow I love 'em. Your fabrics are fabulous. That turquoise is perfect for the cross, & your red pops in Elsie's Star! Nice smooth seams.

    JeanieG ... a great pair of blocks. Eastertide really picks up the spring and Easter spirit in it. Great FCing for Ella's Star ... the horses look like reflections of themselves.

    JanieW ... so sorry about your loss. It's never easy, even when we accept that it;'s all part of life. And worse when it's someone we are close to and treasure. Take some time to remember all the special moments with your Uncle and hold them close forever.

    Alas! I have these two done. Eastertide's corners were indeed a challenge ... not the best, but I'm stopping with this, as I'm not sure I'd get any better with it at this point. Maybe later I'll take another run at it?

    So Eastertide represents the meaning of Easter.
    And Ella's Star ... something for the kids at Easter!

    Great 'eye' candy, Janiew and QuiltE!. Love how you did a block for the kids, Quilte.

    Sorry for your loss, JanieW. Collect some of his favorite shirts for a memory quilt...to remember him by.

    JeanieG...wow! Those horses show up beautifully. Great cutting and the PP works wonderfully for you on Eastertide.

    JanRN...I'm sorry for your loss. Treasure his memories. I do hope your Mom is continuing to recover and you have some time to refresh yourself. Life never asks our permission for what will happen and you seem to be in a season if a lot of "happenings".
