    I have just finished Block # 21 and # 22. Corn and Beans was interesting, in all those little seams in such a little block. I really like how everyones blocks are coming together, Love looking and seeing all the different color combinations.

    Very nice Makklyn-you are brave using stripes--I avoid them at all costs. I love the flower vine fabric too.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone. Stripes can be difficult but I have been trying to challenge myself with fabrics that I wouldn't normally use or put together. My only "rule" for this project is that it has to have some cream in the block.

    Here are my blocks 21 & 22. I really like it when the next pattern is easy. Corn & Beans certainly was challenging

    I agree-I think the author did this on purpose so quilters wouldn't give up if there were too many hard blocks in a row. Although there was one stretch (can't remember which ones) that I thought about 5 in a row would be my downfall.
    Great blocks Peppermint-you're really choosing pretty colors.

    Purple and green are one of my favorite color combinations. Your blocks are great!

    I guess since I started posting I should post these blocks too, even though I am less than thrilled with Corn and Beans. I really should have paper pieced it. Maybe I'll like it better tomorrow when I am not so frustrated with it. I made sooooo many mistakes on this block. I tried to copy Peppermints layout, not sure if I suceeded. I didn't lose ALL the points, I just cropped it that way to hind the points that I did lose :(

    There, it looks better when you stand back a bit :) and you don't think of the "Put in in the Zoo" book by Dr. Suess!

    I like your blocks--very bright and cheerful. BTW, those "missed points" don't show up as obvious when you add the sashing and sew them together. Not that I missed any points on any of my blocks, just sayin'..........(LOL)

    Another round of fantastic finishes. My Contrary Wife fabric choices were just that. I choose to be contrary (or should I say "onrey" as DH says once in a while) The electric pink in the squares with that geometric thing going on is really out there for CW prints. The brown is not the right color and the pink is just to bright IRL. (pic looks better than it is), but that's MY block!After looking at these I think I could've sewn C&B together differently. Think I will press open the pieced corner triangle seams and it will look better. Mine is an example of not paying attention to the pieces when cutting. The big design of the beige fabric makes it look like I've used 2 different fabrics. Hey QE waiting for yours!

    I actually like the brown and pink, you little outspoken, contrary "little lady"! I think the C&B is just fine. That's a pretty red? is it red? print (the darker one). A very nice job!

    PS, OK and QE, how do you get the different font and size in your posts? Can you give me step by step instructions? TIA

    Thanks QN. The C&B dark is a rust. One of the prettiest fall colors is the rust colored soybean fields just waiting for the combine. Depending on the variety some are deeper rust than others.

    See the message box below the Quick Reply? On the little box that says font, click on the down arrow and you will get a choice of different fonts. Pick the one you want (Comic sans) ; the next little box is size (3) ; the one with the letter A is color (Indigo). Have fun!
