    Honchey---I like your block much better than mine! Great fussy cutting/landscape!!

    I like my Gretchen. Gold Nuggets hasn't been squared up so it looks a little off, but at least this time I have the extra fabric to make it the right size!

    Here are my blocks for the week:

    Honchey, I love your scenic cows! And your colors, CarrieM. I tried to "reorganize" Gold Nuggets and tell a ranch story with Gretchen...four different ranch brands...Name:  Gold Nuggets.JPG

    Beautiful blocks as usual from everyone.
    Here are mine for this week, I thoroughly enjoyed making Gretchen as I have made a full Gretchen quilt. I started it in a workshop with Kaye England back in 2003 when she was touring Australia so lots of great memories of a wonderful lady and tutor.

    Everyone has done a great job on these blocks. I will be helping my 10yr old dd get her binding on her quilt tomorrow before I can sew. She is trying to finish so she can take it to the 4-H/County Fair.

    I just got an email from Blank Quilting and have to share the link to one of their new lines called Round Up II: http://www.blankquilting.com/blankqu...age=/index.php

    Carriem, so nice to hear you have someone who is sewing, my girls used to in 4H, but not anymore.
    All the blocks are very pretty. It would be hard to pick a favorite.

    A great start to this week's blocks, Honchey--great fabric placement with the cows in the pasture.
    Carrie--top notch blocks, especially like the Gretchen
    QNS--FC the eagles --fantastic; and a great Gretchen. My FIL made a couple of door knockers with them.
    Jeanie--the simple setting in the nuggest focuses on the heart of the block. Wonderful red contrast in Gretchen.
    mirabelle--such a lovely fabric combo in the gol--I mean Red nugget. One thinkg about little pics exploding into larger ones one can really see your great piecing!!
    DD--oh those straight barbs shine through again. Have you decided on a border yet?
    GrannyQ--another buttery blue. Gretchen has such a sharp contrast, too.
    Termi--I think your blocks are my favorite this week. I love the transition from wood (fence) to apples to trees (orchard) with the horses set in the sides. And a cute floral that is so well matched with the gold in Gretchen.

    Such a sugar rush, gals!--Guess I need some broccoli to calm it down!!!

    Sorry I've been AWOL; my mother was ready to come home from rehab then fell and her health has spiraled downward this week. I love all the blocks everyone has posted. I'm posting mine but they haven't been pressed, trimmed or blocked.
