    Love it; it does look familiar. I had a good PC trail rider send me the print that looks like that and I used it too. Will post tomorrow. Loved the ease of doing this block...no Y seams!!

    Honchey--great fussy cutting, what a fun block!

    Mirabelle--pretty blocks as always the dark blue in the center really pops!

    Honchey, Mirabelle, QNSue...great jobs. This weeks wasn't so difficult but I'm almost to the point of swearing off of PP too. It is so time consuming even when there really is no other easy way to do the block and the reversing always gets me. I think I got the triangles reversed but I didn't notice it until I sewed the last strip together and couldn't see undoing the entire block
    Here's mine for the week. Seems like the pony ride has been decimated by summer fun. Just for the record, I'm current with all of the blocks even when I post them every other week like I have been. My computer needs attention so getting it to upload the photos is a maybe thing. Today it worked.

    GG, like your blocks; so glad you are current. I am not, still have three challenges: ice cream bowl, lucky star, and jewel to finish or sub blocks for those. I have a new computer that works its own way, or I have done something the programmers never thought of!! Daughter is coming in early September, so maybe she can figure out what is going on then.

    Back is easing in pain so back to the kitchen and make more nectarine jam, and work up the tomatoes. Life goes on. Oh, we got a 2 inch rain last night, but the main body of the storm moved South of us. Its cooler at least today. Trip to Des Moines, Iowa, cancelled until next week.

    How different these blocks look with the different fabrics!

    QNS--great use of the novelties.

    GGal--like the purple and green; two of my favorite colors.

    I just took a break from ripping out the triangles I sewed in the wrong place...I takes me 1-2 days to get a block done unless I'm very lucky...I just wish for blocks that don't have to be mirror imaged..that's what messes me up most times...then I go and pick fabric that I end up fussy cutting...it seems I just can't cut thru a piece of fabric cutting across the design/pattern...I have to leave it intact. It's difficult for me to cut thru the horse's belly,legs,head...I feel like a butcher...yuck..oh well, back to the machine to sew the triangles in the right place. H.

    Hey Honchey and QNS--those "poster boy" cowboys look pretty neat in their settings. I wish I had sent you some mosquito fabric for the 10,000 Lakes block!
    mirabelle-what else do I say, but AHHH.
    The purple and green is so striking, GGal; and such a lovely blue fabric in the NO Y SEAMS block.
    Keep them coming folks.

    Lovely blocks! I thought I made at least one of these but all I did was picking fabric
    I'm trying to catch up but that's hard because I'm still 12 blocks behind! So Bev, no, you're not the only one
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I finally finished Minnesota and here it is...Sometimes even with the pping one section or more just doesn't fit and I will remove the paper from the back and resew it ...then it fits! I cannot figure out why that happens...anyone know??? H.

    Honchey I always remove the paper before sewing the sections together, I find that the fabric will move and the paper holds steadfast and you can end up with little pleats. If I need to I will mark my seam allowance on the fabric but most of the time I don't. Hope this helps

    Oh and I find it is easier to pin the sections together without the paper and line up my seams... forgot to say this before

    We are heading home today from Whidbey Island, WA. I've got about three weeks of blocks done, so won't be too far behind when I get there. We will miss our good friends here, but I'm anxious to see my sewing room again. I have so many quilts to finish up. I'm getting antsy! LOL

    Ladies, thank you for all your kind words and condolences. It means a lot to me that you've all been so kind during this difficult time. I'm trying to get caught up on emails, PMs, etc., but just know that you've brought me a lot of comfort.
