    I guess I'll go first. I substituted for both of these blocks. Verna's wasn't my favorite and the schoolhouse in the book had y seams. I believe in "no stress quilting" and y seams give me stress.Name:  Sub & Village School House.jpg

    I like your substitutions Jan. The flower one is really pretty, and of course your quilting is wonderful too!

    Going to the 'dogs' in their old school house is the reason why the village built the new school house with another couple of towns together...

    The tulip block looks dirty, its not. I used two different floral prints, one with a cream background, the other with a beige background. I was having trouble finding fabric pieces big enough for my last few blocks, I truly was down to the scraps

    Wow-great blocks. QNS I love the fabric in Verna's--looks like it's swirling; and that dog in the door is too cute!
    Mirab, Anael will love her tulips--so pretty. I know what you mean about finding fabric for those last few blocks. I bought 3 yards of white-on-white and all I have left is a strip about 3" wide and 15" long.
    Hard to believe the end is in sight!

    Great blocks this week!

    I did Verna Belle, but since I don't need all the blocks opted not to make the School House.

    Honchey...a big welcome back! I see the snow is coming down for both you and Jan. Stay warm.
    Jan...I love how you've quilted your blocks. I saw your Steelers quilt and am so glad that you're getting a little more comfortable with your new toy What fun you must be having.
    QNS...Your little puppy looks so "knowledgeable" from his time at school. And the pony peaking through...I almost missed him. I like you you altered the color placement around the points. Makes perfect sense and adds to the radiating lines of the star. Beautiful.
    Mirabelle...your scraps are lasting. Nice not to have too much left over.
    Carrie...nice balance in your block.
    Here are mine. I didn't bail on Verna Belle. After doing the Tumbling Block, I was feeling a little daring and found it pretty easy. My school house door doesn't show up well but you can see the lights are on in the windows!Name:  Week 44.JPG

    I love both blocks, Ggal, but I'm really drawn to your School House. You're right--it looks like lights in the windows. Very nice blocks. (And you are braver than me to do Verna LOL).

    Neat and well done blocks GG; yes, Jeanie the background in VSH may look familiar...a wonderful PC rider sent it to me....I wonder who that was??? It was so much fun exchanging and sending fabric pieces!!

    Goodness, I have a whole big box of scraps left...but I know who is getting every piece that will put it to good use... but has anyone heard from OksewGlad lately?? QuiltE is off on her trip for two weeks...itis getting to be that busy time of the year, I guess.

    When I was lookin' thru the book I had decided that I didn't like Verna, but ya'll have changed my mind. I will do this block after all.
    I'm goin' on another retreat tamarrow & won't be back till Mon or Tues. (I'll probably be drivin' all day Mon.)

    Ggal--I really like your blocks...great contrast and love the "lights shining".

    dublb--Have a great time at your retreat! I don't have another one until March. I do have a day planned the end of November who is taking some time off work, so that will be nice.

    I am very excited to report that I have my fabrics for my bonus blocks AND have chosen the block!! I can't wait to get started next week.

    Here I am, QNS and all!!! Nice to be missed. I didn't look for the thread until today so haven't gotten any updates.
    Jan--the subs are great and your quilting shows the blocks off.
    QNS--fabric usage is so unique. Lovely fabrics with the horse peeking through. I'm wondering--who let the dogs out?
    mirabelle--even when you are down to the last scraps you still have beautiful blocks--greens add a new color dimension to your quilt and a lovely tulip!
    carrie-nice balance of color in VernaB
    Ggal--equally balanced VernaB in the soft pinks. Do I detect lights on in the early morning at country school--teacher's getting the fire ready with the soft lights of kerosene lanterns? Lovely blue sky

    Don't worry spider.
