    And what a lovely block it is Honchey! The purple outer triangles highlight the purple in the inner star.

    Beautiful block Honchey, I love the fussy cutting you did.

    As promised here are a few pics of my storage cupboards in my new room.

    first photo is my stash, yardage is all folded on shelves and the wire baskets hold my scraps, fat quarters, one yard lengths, kids prints, projects and backing leftovers.
    Second photo is my longer lengths that I have rolled onto bolts.
    Third photo is my extra sewing machines, there are full kits in the plastic storage containers, and projects half started in containers and baskets, extra embroidery threads etc etc

    Yes it will always be this neat as I can't stand a messy room, hope you like it..

    Great block, Anne. Beautiful. Have to get my blocks going again...Almost done with "Gone Fishing", just have to put 21 inches around the panel now...using the Iowa Star or broken canoe pattern...its paper-piecing.

    Wonderful neat sewing room, Mirabelle!! Now you can come to my house in North Central Missouri and organize mine!! LOL!!

    Thanks for sharing mirabelle! Such great organizing.
    Wish I could be so neat and tidy; alas I keep trying. An overnight guest today said, "But G, it only takes 21 days to develop a good habit." Laughing as she said this because we've known each other since she was 7 and as my DD's best friend she's seen my house at its best and its worst!

    MiraB ... such wonderful storage and so well organized. Now please do show us the rest of the room ... where you sew, what view you have, and more! I'm sure you're going to really enjoy your new location. What's happening with your old room? Does it become a bedroom to replace the one you have taken over? ENJOY!!!!!!!


    OKSGlad ... Friends who have seen the best and the worst of our lives, are TRULY friends! ENJOY your time with her while you can!!

    Great job Anne, my block is still in pieces!

    Mirabelle - looks like you are ready to sit down and sew in your new room. I'm like you, mine is always neat also! I cannot work in a mess!

    QuiltE will take photos of the rest of the room next weekend when DH has set up my tables. He wants to make sure the electrical cords are out of the way so I don't take anymore tumbles. Unfortunately I do not have a "view" outside my window as my neighbours are very close. So I put up nice new curtains.
    My "old" sewing room has converted back to my DD's bedroom or guest room now.

    QuiltingNinaSue just say when and I'll be there, but I must warn you I am ruthless when cleaning and sorting stuff.

    MiraB ... I'm so glad that your DH sees the importance of making safety #1 in this resettling! And too, just makes it so much neater too. Nice new curtains will be a nice treat too!!

    Anne, great block--love the fabric colors and your points are perfect.

    Mirab, love your "play ground"--nice, neat, organized. Looks like the perfect place to work.

    Thanks for the compliments........I'm trying to use my scraps and it's getting more difficult as I've been looking at these scraps for the past 2 yrs and none of it is calling me...I've been cutting up & sewing alot into 1 1/2" squares for a postage stamp block....the remainder goes into a pile for a spider web block....I've also done a few crumb blocks...It's supposed to get really hot again so I won't be going outside...I'll be able to sit and sew this week...I'm working at the Viking Gallery for 2 full days...long days as it takes me 45 min each way + the 9 hours of playtime...fun fun fun for me! Now to see about the next set of blocks...H.

    Thought you'd like to take a look at these two made with 1.5 squares from a recent poster. You could be sewing a pair of squares between PPing the PC blocks.

    Enjoy.

    Yep, I always use squares for leaders/enders as I sew these blocks!

    Here are mine for the week.
    Honchey, your block is stunning. I know what you mean about getting tired of the same fabrics. I finally allowed myself to use another group and choices were much easier.
    Mirabelle, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you not running out of fabric. I had just barely enough for my last quilt and was so glad to finish that last block. You've also inspired me to part with some fabric that was given me that I will probably never use. Thanks.
    JanR...your colors really make your blocks shine. Love them
    Oksewglad...happy to see you back in your pony. With all that you've been doing, I know you're spread thin. Also, your mindless sewing of crumb blocks is something I should do. I have lots of scraps but hate the process of cutting them into specific sizes.

    GGal---You are catching up a little at a time. These two are a couple of my favorite blocks in the book and you put them together very nicely!

    Ggal, what great blocks. Your use of color makes them look 3-D. And those points--perfect!!

    I was taken in by the soft yellows in these blocks. Very pretty, GGal.

    Honchey ... that's one good thing about the heat wave ... escape and sew! Wish I could be there more. So ... what are you going to make when you go to play at work? Will you be doing PC? or kitting up something? Your Christmas tree skirt was a wonderful project the last time you "had" to play!!

    GGal ... a beautiful pair. Very effective fabric choices and placements

    Very striking blocks, grannyQ! There's one of the dark fabrics from this week's blocks. Looks like it's a blue violet shade.

    Granny-Q: The contrast is great in these blocks. I like the dark swirl in the 2nd one.
