    Jeanie, our Indians are traveling in the same direction--the wrong one LOL. (Kinda like me--I have no sense of direction.) Your Jewel is gorgeous-love the fabrics you used.
    Termi-great piecing on Jewel. Your points all came out perfect and match up. Good job!

    I finally see what I don't like about the Indian Block... The horse's feet are too big!!!! All the blocks are really great!!!! I was going to ask if anyone wanted a" siesta" for this Tuesday...then I said no to myself can't do that....July 3 & July 4th block fall into place perfectly.....now to go cut my pieces for it.

    I agree Honchey. Looks like the horse has one clubbed foot.

    Termi ... good for you for doing the Indian. And what a perfect fabric, too! Your Jewel really suits its name.

    ... Sorry, I'm with the others in not caring for snakes. Though I will confess, I do admire this one!! ... great job on the barbed wire placement, and getting it centred dead on, on the face. Kind of adds to the slithery-ness of the snake!

    JeanieG ... another with the Indian and well done! Great mix of fabrics for Jewel, and oh so jewel-like!

    I didn't care for the Indian block, but I haven't decided what to replace it with. I posted the jewel block on the wrong thread so I will also add it here.

    Here are mine for the week. I chose not to use the Indian block. To me it looked like his head was about to fall off. I did a block called Barn Dance in it's place.

    GGal--both blocks are very pretty. I like the fabrics in both. Was Barn Dance a pattern online or something from a book? I need a few substitute blocks and like that one.

    GrannyQ, your block is so pretty. You have a talent for getting great contrast in your blocks.

    Ggal, love both of your blocks. Good idea for a substitute for the Indian--nice color combo; and Jewel is so pretty, makes me think of fall (it's 90* here at 9:15pm so I'm wishing for a little cool air).

    I see I'm not the only one not liking the indian on horseback. I said so in the Yahoo group a few months ago but that wasn't appreciated. I will look for a replacement. I like the horse dance block

    He really doesn't look like an Indian! I thought he looked like a "Red Coat," (British Solder durrin' the Revolutionary War.) That won't do in my patriotic quilt. I'm gonna do a sub!

    Ggal, your blocks are very pretty, really like your substitute. Thank you everyone for the nice comments on my blocks. It's really hot here today, just saw 99.6 a while ago. Happy 4th to everyone.
