    ITA ... NC turned out well. NDN just didn't make the grade so well.

    Hello all. It's been fun to see the interpretations of the blocks and the ideas and stories about reading. Me, I love to read. Just wish there was more time.
    Finished my final block last night - North Carolina Beauty. I went in a different direction and reversed colour placement in the centre section from the outer.

    I know this block would have been easier paper pieced but I can now say that every single block I made from the book was regular pieced. I have no idea why that is so important to me. lol

    I just found out that my final block was finished on The Raven Day - the date in 1845 that Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven was first published. How cool is that? (Thanks QuiltE).

    Strike up the band!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hip Hip Hooray, W4Me has all her PC blocks made!

    Great idea for the reversed geese in the two diagonals. A nice way to show off the different fabrics. Nice and colourful block to finish with.

    Thought you would find that trivia interesting when I sent it to you, being that you have those raven fabrics! Just too coincidental that the dates matched!

    Great job W4Me!!! You're done! Love this block too
    Here's the last part of the poem, it's too long to post it.

    And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

    On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
    And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
    And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
    And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
    Shall be lifted - nevermore!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Thanks QuiltE. You knew I couldn't just make the block as I was supposed to, didn't you. I love that spider web fabric. I have more of it but probably not as much as I "should".

    The Poe date will be added to my label for sure.

    Thanks Anael. I actually think that the search for Halloween batiks was the most fun part of the entire process. I find the poem creepy yet compelling. I have a book of the entire Poe works. Haven't gotten into it yet. Might never. Just kind of fun that I have it.
