    Oh wow I am early again, I have been so busy but managed to get these finished on the weekend. Hope you like them
    Beautiful block Honchey, my centre of Clover Blossom is a little off but I am not undoing it, I am striving for a beautiful quilt not a perfect one.

    Honchey ... while you have one done, I see you are already into next week's blocks! A good way to disguise stripes being straight (or not) ... use waves! Nice colour in that block. I like it!

    MiraB ... Your blocks always seem so fresh and spring-like! Another pair of winners.

    Moi? I have my two done ... just not photo'd yet! On tomorrow's to do list.

    Good Night all ........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!

    Okay who's going to see it on a galloping horse, MiraB. Each time I see your blocks I just smile and think what a beautiful quilt this will be.

    Beautiful blocks again Mirabelle! Love the colors and fussy cutting in Clover Blossom. I've mine done also, but, like QuiltE, need to scan them. Tomorrow for mine as well!

    Anne I love the bright colors you used, really adds movement to a very "straight" block.
    Mirabelle-you achieved pretty, really beautiful fabric and blocks.
    Here are mine-not my favorite fabrics but I tried to stick to the theme of the blocks.

    Awwwww...my favorite morning. Honchey, your block really wakes us up so we better get going, huh?

    Maribelle, your choice of fabrics are beautiful. You'll wind up with a beautiful rose garden when you're done.

    JanR, your blocks look great. Good way to use not the favorite fabric and achieve a good block.

    I'll have mine later this week. Needed to clear my sewing table of my granddaughter's quilt which I plan to mail today. The piecing went so fast but I really got bogged down with the quilting. Not my favorite thing at this point but I'm learning.

    Good Morning Ladies!

    JanRN ... with not so fabourite fabrics, perhaps you like the results ... as much as I do!! Those greens really sing and the diagonal seems to break up the stripey-ness (new word!) in the Corral! Well done!!

    I'm starting to regret my decision to have the yellow and/or anchor fabric in every block.
    I'm not sure it worked so well for the Clover Blossom (note, Red Clover!). And then it made the Colt's Corral a little too yellow. I might re-do it, as I just didn't get the stripes right either ... oh for the dangers of stripes!! I knew it, and shouldn't have tried it while in the sick ward!

    OK...mine are done for this week......QuiltE.....really like your fabric choices......I cannot, for the life of me, get a "straight" picture, but you all get the idea.....LOL! They really are square (I hope)!

    OOPS! I should have ironed these better....oh well,..

    QuiltE...I like your blocks. If you aren't sure of the yellow in each block, maybe you could add a secondary background color for some and mix them up. Sashing will also make a difference.

    Wendig..you've certainly lassoed the corral. Your corners on the other block are spot on. Great work.

    Clover Blossom and Colt's Corral

    When I saw all your blocks I said to myself, wow!

    Honchey, I love your bright colors and the swirl fabric!

    mirabelle, you WILL have a beautiful quilt. No one will see any slight imperfections, they don't matter. I'm learning that myself.

    janRN, your blocks look great, I like them, nice job!!

    QuiltE, I really like the yellow in your blocks. You have green clovers and I love the contrast in colt's corral. Great job! Hope you feel better soon!

    wendiq, Great fabrics, beautiful colors in clover blossom!!

    I have just finished mine.

    Thank you all for the compliments. I love all your blocks.
    QuiltE, I like the yellow background, your blocks are so cheery. I started out trying to use the same background in all my blocks but I found it too limiting. Some of the fabrics I wanted to use didn't work with the white so I'm back to mixing my backgrounds to suit the block.
    Wendi, that rope fabric makes that block "move" and your contrast with the red & blue is so nice.
    Termi, you have the cutest fabric-love the horseshoes and little sheep. Both blocks are so cute.

    Termi, such cute blocks! The wood boards are great with the red w/horseshoes, & the green clover w/sheep..!

    WOW!! Lots of new stuff since I was here this morning!!

    WendiQ ... Nice subtle contrast in the rope and plain fabrics, and keeps it from not being so stripey. It looks like that rope is just winding from one strip to the other, under the plain. Great mix of the ol' RW+B in the Clover Blossom.

    Termi .... oooohhh I like those fabrics. You worked hard to get those horseshoes and the boards all in the same direction for all the pieces. Nicely done and envious of those two fabrics. Cute little sheep in the clover patch!!

    Thanks everyone, for giving me a boost on my blocks. I do like the cheery-ness of the yellow, just that I'm thinking some of the blocks just would look better if I didn't have it there! Good idea,
    GGal about a 2nd background fabric. Wonder what?

    I'm trying to not get myself too bothered at this point as I know the sashing can really make a difference. Plus it's still early, and with more blocks, as I choose fabrics to help coordinate more, I know the look will keep changing!

    So many great blocks! I'm going to do mine tomorrow (I hope) but I won't make Colt's Corral as I don't like this block.

    Oh no! Earlier today I logged on & saw Termi's blocks & didn't even see everyonelse's blocks.
    Jan - Great contrast with your Colts Corral, & lovely green Clover Blossom!
    QuiltE - Colver in Clover Blossom. Brilliant, & your strips look good to me! I like the yellow, so cheery, but if your not happy with it then use less of it in your other blocks. Like you said we've only just started, with 74 more blocks to go.
    Windiq - What! Rope in the Corral??? He He. Just perfect! And that blue just pops in your Clover Blossom.

    Well here's mine.

    Hi Everyone, well I WAS going to post my blocks. When scanning my Clover Blossom, I glanced up at it and "Oh No", the side triangles were going the wrong direction. Augggggg!!! Gotta rip them apart and fix!
