    Ooh wow - your blocks are really cool!

    Here are my blocks 23 and 24. They are embarrassing - but I figure this is the only way I will learn!

    What are you embarrassed about??? I love them both, esp how you did the second one. Mine's still in 4 sections-I can't fit them together. Love the fabric in the first one. I think you did a great job.

    My blocks just aren't as good or as matching as everyone else's. And I really notice it when I take the picture. But - it's okay - I just know I have a lot to learn!

    roxannebcb,

    Don't be embarrassed,
    I love your purple block (I am definetly a purple and blue person......and a green....and a red.....and a orange.... and a.....okay an every color person.....)
    Your colors really spark and are quite pretty. Some of these blocks are "tuffy's". We just muddle thru them and keep on a buildin' them.

    Thank you everybody - I definitely benefit from your support - and need it. I took pictures of my first 25 blocks last night and will post today. Thank you so much. I should be getting going again with a vengeance. Want to get it done. Don't feel like I can start any other scrappy or pieced quilts until I get this one done.

    These are actually purple, it was too much work to get the right camera out tonight! I liked these two far better than the last two :) I really need to start paper piecing these. Sadly I am hindered by the fact that I can't find a mechanical pencil to make the outlines - - two many kids and not enough pencils :shock:

    These are really beautiful. I've had blocks I haven't particularly liked, but I've never re-made one. Kudos to you.

    and
    #24 Country Path ... some blocks orient themselves to square placement and others better on point. This is one loses something when on point!

    Another trip through the posts. I just sigh and enjoy all the wonderful combinations you have all come up with. QE, love the red corners, another one that shimmers. The green is really working for sashing I think! All I have time for today, later.

    Thanks OK ... I'm liking the green too! When you get a chance, take a look at the 1-25 thread, where I have three different fabrics with them. Not the best of pic though!

    I'm really learning from these blocks about working with different fabrics ... that shimmery stuff does so much more than a lot of the prints do!

    After looking through the blocks I'm in awe of your piecing, folks. I'm trying to get back to these and catch up on the PC so here are blocks for me. I plan on scanning in my previous blocks so I can use them in EQ like I have the PC blocks. Name:  FWS 23 Country Farm.jpg

    I like your colors. Looks rich and wonderful. Its one stitch at a time until you have them all!! Every journey begins with the first step!!! And then continues on at your own pace.... There are still some blocks I have not done, but will sub others for them.

    It brings a smile to my face remembering doing most of these blocks....I'm still missing several of them...After working on the PC blocks I can't imagine going back to the intricate 6" blocks.. other than a few DJane blocks I never picked up pping until this quilt...now I can't imagine making any blocks without pping them.
    Oksewglad, your blocks are beautiful and pieced perfectly. H.

    Thanks for the encouragement you two. I'm enjoying getting back at these and working with the CW repro fabrics. About half I will PP.

    Alas! I'm getting a look at these and they are grand, indeed.
    OKSGlad ... Your CW fabrics really are "selling" me on CW.
    So colourful, yet so muted at the same time.
    And talk about perfection in the piecing!!

    Like Honchey ... it was nice to return to this thread and re-view what we have all achieved together.

    Here are my blocks. The colour placement of Country Path isn't right but it's ok with me

    Oh but the colors are so pretty, Anael. Have you been working on these a lot here of late?
