    QE--nice corners. By the time I got to my fourth one I was satisfied with the job, but not enough to redo the other 3!!
    Cute, cute bunnies! The yellow in your blocks is really a hallmark and you are doing a great job of finding fabrics to complement it!

    OKSGlad ... so many fabrics are in my stash to choose from and so many keep appearing in my mailbox too! I'm loving it ... and I am choosing from my mail buddies first and foremost!! The corners aren't so perfect, remember the pics aren't so good!

    And I didn't notice until I put up the pic, that the purple rays coming out to the corners aren't lining up just right. Will need to see if I can adjust the sashing placement or not ... and if not, this might become a re-do for sure!

    DDamsel ... what a pretty block. The pale blue stripes work well in the points. And is that barbed wire on the dark nabvy? So sorry that you are not well ... and am so happy for you that you can move in with your parents to help you out for now. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery.

    QuiltE...your blue sashing really makes your blocks shine....and who will notice that one corner block isn't perfect?

    DDamsel....hope you get to feeling better soon. You're more than welcome to ride shotgun in the chuck wagon until you get up to speed for sewing. Stay in touch.

    I will!!!
    ..... purples against the yellow really emphasize the diagonal not coming out right. And here I was thinking I'd made it thru the corner insertions without too much of a mess!!! I just don't know how I missed it, though I guess it was one of those things you couldn't really see til the sashing was in place. **note to self**be more observant in the future!!**

    mirabelle, I like your 2nd Eastertide too. Both are beautiful!! Those corners were really buggers!

    JanieW, oh, just beautiful!! Lovely shades of blue and turquoise and the red really stands out. They look perfect!!

    JeanieG, the fabrics in Eastertide are just beautiful, the yellow really stands out. Love your horses, great FC. Great job on both!

    dublb, sorry to hear about your uncle. It's always hard to lose someone you love. Give yourself time.

    QuiltE, what beautiful blocks, just love your yellow. Such a cute bunny in the hat! The blue sashing is gorgeous!!

    deranged damsel, great work on ES. The dark blue really stands out. The colors are lovely together!

    Honchey, thanks to you my Eastertide has corners when it otherwise would not have!

    Whew, they're not perfect but they're a done deal in my book.

    Hang on, my uploads failed.

    ......... hanging!!!!!!!!

    And thanks
    Termi for the kind words ... I'm liking the yellow more and more. Getting a better handle of how to mix it with the other fabrics. Blocks done, though I think that ET will be a re-do!

    Oh Termi, your blocks are lovely. Nice li'le set-in blocks, & your center points in both blocks, are nice & sharp.

    Oh Termi, these are just lovely! Great piecing, too.
    Question, how many of you take off the paper before taking photos/scanning? I usually am so excited that I'm done with the block that I leave the paper until some down time.

    QuiltE, hope you don't mind my asking but why are you going to re-do ET. I can't see anything wrong with it.

    oksewglad, thanks for the compliment! In answer to your question....... I can't wait to get the paper off so it's off before I post the pict.

    QuiltE...Are you sewing the sashing on all 4 sides of each block or is the sashing just placed on them??? H.

    Termi ... look at the top right corner of the Eastertide .... the blade/ray doesn't come out to the sashing the way it does on the other part of that same corner. I'm not rushing at re-doing it as I think I need a breather and some down time from those wicked corner pieces. I'll get ahead a few blocks then take another round at it! Great blocks ... nice and square and straight and pointy points. Wonderful colour/fabric mixes!

    OKSGlad ... I take the paper off as part of making the block and now am adding the sashing as the final step. If I waited to take off the paper til later, I know I would hate it and only see it as work!

    Honchey ... I'm just sewing it onto two sides, and then when the blocks sit side by side, it looks complete. For this pic, I did add some extra unsewn strips to give the look, but probably won't do that for the rest of the blocks. I'm ready for tomorrow night!
