    I said I'd bow to anyone who used templates for Ice Cream Bowl. DD, I'm bowing, clapping and saluting you!! Great job on your blocks.

    GGal ... a pretty pair you have there ... brown and gold is a favourite combo of mine. And you can't beat PPing for the precision in your ice cream bowl!

    DDamsel ... our hero indeed, using all those templates!!

    CarrieM ... I have done all of my 36 (or is it 38?) via PPing, including those that were not planned as such!! I just used the line drawings and broked them into the parts for PPing ... and yes, even the Bird's Eye View (dresden plate like)!!

    Ladies thanks again for the compliments

    I didnt realize that you have done ALL of your blocks PP I am blown away! PP is difficult for me, so it seems to me that PP is equally impressive to templates if not greater!!!

    PS glad you like the snake

    Thanks DDamsel, though PPing is NOT hard! Think of it as dot-to-dot meets paint-by-number. I kind of feel guilty when doing PPing, as though I'm cheating. Most of my FWS was PPd. I started out doing regular piecing, and then came to a couple blocks that I knew would be a nightmare. At that time I was far from a PPer ... and honestly, thought it was totally useless and hopeless. The more I did it, the easier it seemed and the more I liked the results. Those results alone, encouraged me to do more of it and get better. Thus, I made up my mind that PC would be all PPing with as much FCing, to get better at that as well! Now if I could only get back at doing some blocks!

    I have great respect for you and others who work with templates ... yes, I know, if I'd only "force" myself and practice practice practice ... some day, no doubt I will, when there's something I "want" to do and it's the only way!

    I don't know why I can upload some files and not others, but I will keep trying. These are my blocks for this week, and I will try again to upload my 45 blocks. I really like all the ice cream blocks. They all look so yummy.

    Great block QNSue! ... before I saw your comment, I thought "Treasure Map"! A lot of work with all those fussy cuts. The dark green tree fabric couldn't have been a better choice!

    Thank you QNS. I made a replacement because I absolutely dislike the icecream bowl block. So here it is, it's called Circle the Field and the pattern is from Quitler's Cache.

    GrannyQ...your blocks are so very nice. I usually have worked sampler quilts but but will take the plunge one of these days and so one with a family of colors.

    QNSue...your stash has some amazing finds. What neat blocks you come up with and then a family story to go with it!

    Anael...your blocks are so well done as usual. I LOVE your substitutue. I don't have that book but will be looking for it

    Thanks GG! Quilter's Cache is not a book, it's a site: http://www.quilterscache.com. Just have a look, there are so many blocks and all free

    Isn't the quilterscache just wonderful??!! Love your block Anael, it is so colorful, and yes, I will go back at look at that block on line. It looks like a great replacement for Jewel or Lucky Star.

    Finished my Chains of Love quilt except for binding; and the Deer family in Attic window with pillow fall scene and scene repeated at the bottom needs binding also. Now to finish 'gone fishing' and canning tomatoes....make another batch of nectarine jam. It is cooler today and that is wonderful... low to middle 90s instead of 103.

    Anael, your blocks are so crisp and clean. The colors have such pure values. Can't wait to see your quilt done!
