    I got two blocks done for this week. I liked how Home Treasures turned out.

    I substituted ICB with Gladie's Mariners Compass. The "white" in this block is more cream than it looks. This block took a long time to put together, but I am happy I kept at it!

    Thanks Gladie for the pattern and just so you know I ended up using version #2 (yours) for assembly...the other one had too many "y-seams"!

    CarrieM ... two spectacular blocks! And I really do like Gladie's Star! Great choices there to make the star shine brightly!

    MiraB .. as always two soft and feminine beauties

    Beautiful blocks, ladies. Carriem is that an orangish fabric? No matter, it's lovely and I really like Gladie's star. Good job on both.
    Mirab, oh so pretty. Your blocks make me think of an English flower garden, so soft but vibrant.

    here are mine for this week, fresh off the machine

    I want to replace Indian on horseback with another block, but havent been able to find inspiration..... until last night!

    my Son told me that there was a snake in his room, I dismissed it immediately because I figured him being a joker was trying to get out of going to bed..... SO about an hour later I was turning out the lights and saw a slithering tail go under my bedroom door... I peeked in to see the tail go under my bed!!! so after I stopped screaming! Dh Son came and fished it out from under there! it was a 16inch baby Gopher snake. SO I think I want to make a Snake block for next week, maybe it will bring me good luck so I dont have any more REAL snakes in my house ~~fingers crossed~~

    DD those are the prettiest blocks--I love the fabric you used.
    Anne, all I can say is "yum"--reminds me of sprinkles on vanilla ice cream. You both have such perfect points.

    Honchey ... too funny about the 38 flavours ... and what a great take-off on the block!

    DDamsel ... ewwwwwwwww!!!!!!! I don't think I could have slept after that!!! And would be slithering everytime I see a snake block after that! As for this week's blocks, I'll just pleasantly and enjoy your introduction of the greys to your blues. Will blend together really nice.

    JanRN ... beautiful for both. Great FC FlutterBye! and mmmmmm would that be black cherry ice cream?

    Mirabelle--your blocks are great as always. I too look forward to seeing them all together.

    Jan--yes, the fabric I used is an orange/rust color. Your blocks look great. I especially like the butterfly...it is very similar to a fabric I will be buying in the next week or two from a line called "shimmer" (http://www.ttfabrics.net/cgi-bin/fab...i?Category=710) I love butterflies and plan to use this to make a 4-patch kaleidoscope.

    DDamsel--I like your fabrics too...paisleys are another weakness of mine in the fabric dept. LOL I am not crazy about snakes either. I was curious what kinds of snake patterns there were and found two different things you might to check out: http://www.trianglesonaroll.com/snakes.aspx and http://www.artprojectsforkids.org/20...-template.html Maybe you found something already, but thought I would share.

    Honchey--great ice cream bowl! Love all the "flavor" options.

    Oh what fun blocks, everyone.
    Carrie both blocks are just lovely. Sorry the pic of the Compass wasn't true to life. I have that cream/blue and know it's a much darker block. Center points meet so nicely in it.
    mirabelle--ahhh ohhh.
    DD, no barbed wire, but these awesome paisleys are fantastic. Yeah right Hot off the machine!! "Snake's alive".
    Anne-perfect toppings; perfect pieces!
    Jan spot on the FC of the BF's, and no QE it's Blue Bunny's Bordeaux Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream. My personal favorite

    Like QE and others I have been detained once again this week. Looking forward to July and maybe some sewing time. Meanwhile be on the look out for Life is like a box of chocolates, coming to a thread near you.

    Well, that is a new ice cream flavour to me! .... or is it Ben and Jerry's "Cherry Garcia?

    You're too funny on the quote! ...... I saw one the other day on a sign that I thought was oh so perfect for quilters and dang it all anyway, I can't remember it at all!

    I think I'm going into withdrawal and my sewing machine will soon forget me.

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments. Yinz keep me plugging away at these blocks.

    Termi, great blocks. Home Treasures is very "western" and your Ice Cream Bowl has me craving ice cream with cherries and sprinkles! Nice work on both of them.

    Ok, Jeanie, where do you get the ream of newspaper print from...is it heavier than the doodle pad paper??? I'm tired of paying $2/60 sheets and having to cut them too! I also purchased the packing paper and it's a pain to get it all lined up. The wheels are turning and I'm thinking about future projects....H.

    I got mine from Dick Blick website. At first I was not going to buy it because the shipping was so high, but I could get 2 reams for the same shipping cost so I went ahead. It is just great. Goes through the printer with no problems. Here is the website directly to the newsprint - just scroll down

    http://www.dickblick.com/products/blick-all-purpose-newsprint/

    The cost is $3.04 a ream and shipping is $8.95 for up to a $100 purchase. (It was $7.95 when I bought it last December.) It IS really handy and I figure it will last me for years. I tried every stationery type store around my area and nobody carried it!

    If you sign up for the Dick Blick newsletter sometimes they have coupons for free shipping...so if you aren't in a hurry to get something you can wait for that.
