JanRN...This is also my favorite morning. So many beautiful blocks. In trying to note everyone's block the QB thought I was posting duplicates when I did yours. Can't see how you cheated on Bright Hope. Good job.

Here are mine for the week. Bright Hope had to be bright but it does look like my center is not quite square. Darn y seams. I appliqued the center block with machine stitching on the Bird's Eye and outlined all of the rest. My machine must need some special strokes that I haven't figured out yet. Miss Froggy insisted on meeting me 3 times on one line. So much to learn!

Bright block gardnergal! Next time you do a block like this sew the first seam just halfway, attach the other 3 parts and now you can close the first seam. No need to do y seams, makes life easy

Beautiful blocks. If you look at my Bright Hopes you can see where I split the top rectangle into 2 squares. Then it went together like a 9 (7 in this case) patch. Didn't see the point of set in seams--why re-invent the wheel LOL!!
Thank you!

I'm so impressed with the blocks you have posted so far. I am going to post mine now. Have to say, I am not too kicky about either of these that "I" did, but they are done and at this point, I'll live with them....

Oh these blocks just make me smile. Wonderful jobs. Glad these are realitively quick as I have a house guest until Friday; will be later in the week before sewn and posted.

Anne, yes 4 and 20, BBirds baked in a pie; great fabric choices in the BHopes
Janie, that cute little cowboy has a twin? How sweet. And the ducks are finding their way to a lake.
QE, Looks like the bright eyed Holsteins are surrounded by rope fabric. Those beautiful birds are tweetly singing in the the mesquite. Very pretty
dublb, I thought the center square was one piece of fabric. Beautiful matching!
Anael, only 2 years sewing.. Wow your blocks look like you are a seasoned stitcher. Your bucking bronc looks like he is having fun going round in the horseshoe circle; and then the calm serene BHope. Nice.
Jan, Those totems will really add interest to your quilt, and another bucking bronco having a fun time.
ggal, Your BHope has such a nice balance of bright colors; and love the fabric in the B's eye.
Wendiq, The rickrack center highlights the B eye block. Nice colors altogether. I'm still laughing at those two little kids in their tug o war.
Deep voice of the radio announcer. "Who's on the other end of the rope? Will we find out in the next installment of The Pony Club?" as the music fades in the background.

Your blocks look really good. I'm sure you'll like them when you find a "home" for them when the entire quilt goes together.

Default Bright Hopes and Bird's Eye View

Hello All, You all did such great looking blocks!!!!!! I've finished Bright Hopes and have to say it was the easiest and quickest block yet AND it came out the right size all around. I'll post picts when I finish BEV.

Do I see some chocolate smudges on a bunch of faces?

DublB ... You kept the "stars and stripes" theme! Very effective how you did those stripes and they really put a pizazz into that block! I thought it was about time I brought some cows into the quilt. You noticed that one looking right at you ... and then there's the others in different directions! I had quite a time deciding which cows to keep in, and which to cut off of that block. I'm not as fussy on the dark all around the edge as my others with the yellow in the background/edges ... though the dark seemed to make the cows pop out more! Thanks for noticing my FCing ... it took me quite awhile to do it, but is well worth it.

Anael ... I think that L'il Buckin' Bronco just might jump out of that circle!!! Nice softness in your Bright Hopes, with a perfect mix of those 4 outside fabrics. We think alike ... that's how I did my block too! Had lots of practice with those partial seams in the Butterfliese for Comfort quilt that posted the other day.

JanRN ... perfect block to showcase your totem poles! Nice fabric in Bird's Eye ... opposite block to Honchey's. And looks like you got that circle, circular!

GGal ... for sure, those cows are not range beasts!!! My quilt will probably end up more of a "rural theme" than ♪♪♫
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKBqz6FWvlo♫♪♪ Great blocks ... maybe the square IS square, and it's just the way it looks in the pic? Nice touch with the machine blanket stitching ... will have to try that sometime. A good old fashioned look to it.

WendiQ ... is that ric-rac peaking out ... cute! And a good idea. The blocks are simpler, so sometimes we expect the same wow-factor of the more complicated starry type ones. Yours are stars in their own right!

OKSGlad ... you always have such fun comments ... and good feedback on the work we do! Enjoy your company this week, and don't work too hard. Then plan a sewing good time all weekend after they are gone!
