    Good idea JeanieG ... Do you stick with one of the Fusion lines? or are you collecting all the different lines? I really like them too and just might follow your sample card idea. Thanks!

    I like all the Fusion line, but my favorite is the Fusion 5573 line, I like the Fusion Mist also. Such wonderful fabrics, in gorgeous colors.

    I don't see a lot of the 5573 when I am out and about. The Mist, obviously I like ... and all the colours! The metallic ones are really nice as the metal is subtle, and just gives a nice tonal pop with a hint of bling.

    All fabulous blocks as usual but, Honchey, holy cow that's amazing.

    My Gretchen is complete. I used one of the fabrics I just picked up this week. I'm not sure how she feels about disembodied heads but, with a strong, old-fashioned name like Gretchen I'm sure she'll be fine.

    The skulls show nicely in that block,
    and oh, look at how the orange comes out of the sage to greet them!

    Thank you. This block helps bring Lightning more into the mix, with its bright orange.

    dublb - I'm still piecing, not paper piecing, so Gretchen was a little bit of a challenge but went together quite quickly, and surprisingly accurately.

    Thank you JeanieG.

    Next up is Morning Star, still pieced. My first section was extremely frustrating but I think I have the hang of it now. Still, I'm going to take my time and do some today and some tomorrow morning.

    I think we need a group shot to see how they have come together!

    I had to go back to take a look at the block I made.. This is so much fun just looking at the blocks remembering all the hard work..trying to figure out the fabrics...etc....

    W4Me..looking forward to seeing your "milestone" photo...

    Just what I was thinking, plus the smaller scale of the skulls will help showcase the larger skulls you used in the last block.

    I just went through the past posts on this thread and what I discovered was how we began to share beyond the PC blocks. It is no longer about the quilt, but about the quilters. to you all.

    Thank you Honchey and oksewglad.

    Yes, it seems like quite a few friendships have been made along with the quilts.
