    You are all doing better than me !! I haven't been able to get to my machine yet. I've noticed alot of purple hues lately--someone on this board's blocks are rubbing off on us :) --Hopefull sometime this week I'll find the path to my machine-I'm visiting my family in Delaware for a few days-baking and such. Have a good week girls. See you on Tuesday evening. Anne

    janrn and rwquilts,

    I really like the colors in both of your blocks! It always amazes me how the different colors make a block look.

    Very pretty-I had trouble getting my "petals" to meet in block 37. Must be viewed from that galloping horse.

    Thank you JanRN and Pookie Ookie
    # 37 was a tough block... to me... I ended up having 2 inset seams(I still don't like inset seams, Is everybody else? though they do seem to be getting easier)

    Jeannie, your fabrics are so cute with those blocks!

    QWC, another stunning color comb on 38. You have some really neat fabric and color choices with your blocks.

    Here are my 37 & 38 blocks. Wow did 38 have a lot of pieces! It's actually an easy block, especially if you're paper piecing. But the number of pieces really slowed me down.

    Hello Ladies .... I Spy .... some pretty pretty blocks made, almost a year ago!!

    To keep this thread going, here's my offering .......
    #37 -- Flower Pot
    and
    #38 -- Four Winds
    58/111

    Oh how I wish I could get some better colours of my blocks during their kodak moments. (Gosh does anyone remember that saying anymore).

    Can some tell me how to get these pics better?
    Mine seem to be either bleached out or as in this case dark!

    One of the advantages of being a late comer is to see the different effects the choices of color/scale make in the blocks. So very neat, all of you! JAGSD your little tiny ones amaze me!
    QE from here the points looks so sharp-good job. The mottled green print in 38 adds an interesting look. In regards to pic taking, have you tried taking pics in a room where there is a lot of natural day light. Somewhere I read to have light falling over your left shoulder as well. Might eliminate the shadow from your body.

    Happy Thanksgiving all.

    I did try taking them outside for a few of the shots and didn't get much better luck. These have been downstairs on my design wall and I don't get any differnet pics with the lights on or off!!! Might try the next few upstairs .... or another round of them outside. Just convenient when I can shoot them as I get them done .... I'll give it another try!

    BTW .. you must have eyes like an eagle to see the mottled green(or your monitor is giving a lot better pic for you than mine does ... it's kind of neat, olive-y green with some burgundy fleck and bits of white speckled in there. By chance, do you have any Jersey fabric? (I know wrong breed for you!) ... I'd like to get a bit for my PCQ!! Have the holsteins already.

    And oh ... the pointy points ... the credit all goes to PPing for that, not moi!

    Eagle eyes? No--just zoomed in to 200%!! Will check on my novelty fabrics, don't think I have any Jersey, but will look.

    Now, why didn't I think of that!! duhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
    I didn't really expect that you'd have Jerseys, though I know how hard it is to get cows, let alone different breeds, so thought you might be like me and just nab it when you saw it. Oh ... got milk cans, pails, etc. today! Hard decision on how much to snag of that one.

    QuiltE, I scan my blocks into the computer. Thank goodness they're 6" blocks! I then clean them up (crop, adjust brightness) if needed. If you have MS Office, you have MS Picture Manager. It is found in the programs as Microsoft Office, then Microsoft Tools. Once you click on that, you'll see MS Picture Manager. Hope this helps.

    I have this rope in my hands. I can't figure out whether I found a rope or lost my horse.

    One little technical difficulty .... I'd need a scanner!
    Yes, I'm in the dark ages ..... still a laser printer, no colour, nor a scanner!!!! Maybe Santa will provide?
