    Very nice Jeanie--the red shows up again.

    Just heard an interesting thing about lightning. We may be only seeing about 10% of the actual strike when it happens. Much like an iceberg; no wonder why it is so dangerous.

    Anael ... you created a wonderful block there ... fabrics were bang on for it! Quite a 3-D effect created.

    JeanieG ... a nice pair of blocks for your holiday memories! Did you get some serious FART shopping done with your friend?

    We visited a couple of fabric/quilt shops in Anacortes, WA when we were there. Really did not do much shopping! I came home with a few new fabrics.

    Oh I like that block, CarrieM ... and you have me really wishing I could head to my sewing machine and stitch one up!
    That'd would make for a great matchy-matchy quilt top of just those blocks and fabrics.

    I really like this one too. It was a lot of pieces so I can't imagine making a whole quilt out of these blocks however I agree it would look really neat.

    It is amazing how many blocks I can get done in a week if I am not working on lots of other quilts in between! It is supposed to rain all day Saturday so I will have both Friday and Saturday to sew now...

    Carrie, this block will be a show stopper in your quilt. The viewer's eye will immediately be drawn to it. Put it in a place that deserves the spotlight.

    ........ Though you could use the pattern and make the pieces larger.

    The contrast is subtle with the darker fabrics but is perfect for this block.

    Fabulous blocks as usual.
    Lightning is complete. I used, gasp, orange for my second colour. It seemed appropriate. I was going to change up the centre row a bit as I find the block a little boring. But, once I saw the way the orange played, I decided it wasn't boring at all.

    It seems narrower at the bottom in the photo but it isn't. I took the pic at an angle and was too lazy to retake it.

    WOW!! ... look at how the orange comes out of the sage!
    As you said before ... a real chameleon that sage is.

    Well Done .. W4Me!

    Thank you. And it was you who first called it a chameleon. And right you were.

    I like that block W4Me. The orange makes a boring block interesting and will add a pop of color to your quilt.

    Thank you janRN - there are a few brights in the mix now.

    QuiltE - several people mentioned the sage picking up the other colours but it turns out I was the first to use the term chameleon. Go figure.
