    The use of just brown and cream in your NS block draws attention to that lovely shade of green and the horses heads. You were spot on not to add green to the other pieces in this block. Just lovely. The white makes the field of this flag pop. Very nice on both, Jeanie.

    Clever rendition of the NStar again, QNS. And look at that red fabric in NY. As always great blocks.

    Love the different looks the fabrics give the patterns. What amazing quilts we all will have! I have only one for this week. I'm planning a sub for the y seams and just haven't decided which one...the maple leaf or frog. I'll surprise you.Name:  Week 33.JPG

    Actually GGal , the "Y" seam in the NStar is a very lazy "Y" and not as difficult to sew, but sewglad you have some substitute choices.

    Here I am ... your AWOL PC'er!
    I stopped by to see what's been happening and to subscribe to this week's threads ... but it looks like they aren't up yet.
    It seems that I haven't read any of the PC threads/posts for eons ... and took a few moments to peek into this one.

    As always you have some beautiful work to delight my tired eyes!
    And I see some familiar fabric being worked into the blocks!!!

    Then I see this ..............

    I'm not sure what your discussions have been .... but I have been planning all along to find ways to honour each of you in my PC quilt.

    Anael ... I may need some help. I have found the Aussie fabric for MiraB, but so far nothing for The Netherlands.

    USA Ladies ... I've even found some fabric with each of your State Flags!

    I'm missing all of you ... and our PC campfire chats!
    Hope all are well, and life is being good to you all!
    Sincerely, QuiltE

    Then I went to bed and realized it was NOT!

    Just had to let you know, that a rare moment of sanity did come back to me!



    Of course, tulips! what else for
    Anael ???
    Thanks
    DublB !!

    Thanks, everyone. One of my friends was having a garage sale and was selling those really nice craft boxes with handles that easily hold a 12 inch block for $10 with everything that was in them. That's where I got the star fabric which I immeidetly fell in love with and had to use it right away. Some of the fabric isn't my first choice so I'm cutting strips and starting my Bonnie Hunter Scrap Saver's bins. I'm finding that at the end of every sewing session there is something to add to several bins. It takes a little longer but there are no longer those odd pieces that are to big to throw away but aren't enough to do much with. I'm also scrubbing my FQ's again for those that I've just kept passing over and they're getting stripped. With the humidity these past few days, quilting has been sticky business so I've pieced and cut. Weather should cool off soon and I'll get back to finish quilting the two lap size quilts for my DGDs.
