    They all look great. I am about 20 behind, thanks to our move to the new house, and now not in the mood to sew or quilt. Hopefully I can get back into it soon.

    Hi Kookie, we came home for the Holidays-we enjoy watching the grandkids ripping off the Christmas wrapping paper. Oh, and yes we got hit with 26" of snow with drifts of 3+ ft. We have 6ft. icicles hanging from the gutters. We're leaving next week to bring some more "stuff" down to NC. It snowed there too!
    I'm halfway done with # 43 then try to catch up with the ones I haven't started with. Good to have you back too!. Anne

    Hubby trying to knock off the icicles!

    Thanks, Jeanie. What I don't like (especially in block 44) is the fabrics. Last spring, I got a bunch of 2-1/2" strips & a variety of sizes of squares from Keepsake Quilting; most are fabrics that I would NEVER choose to buy. The fabric is good, but some of the patterns & colors really stink. I waste nothing, so I'm trying to use as many of them as I can in this FWS, but some of them are pretty hopeless. They should be fine as part of the finished quilt, though.

    RW, I love, love your blocks 43&44! Maybe because they are in the colors I'm doing my quilt...but I thought they were outstanding!

    Thank you Jeanie and Nonnie! I'm getting a couple of projects finished so I can get back to these blocks...I'm still a little ahead, but if I don't crack the proverbial whip over my own head that won't be the case very long...

    I figured out how to change things with my EQ5 so was able to change #43 (took me all morning- then the duh moment hit) so wouldn't have y-seams... which made these two fun to do. Here are my 3" ones, the 4" will be following soon.
    "Thank you" Quilting Nonnie, I love the blacks they are working in well to blend in my bats block.

    Ok, Here's block 43 or is it 44. Well anyway, that Garden Path might just get left behind :shock: That sure looks complicated!

    Very pretty, Patricia. I re-did Garden Path with a lot of help from here but it's still wonky. I agree--I might leave that one out also. Love the green fabric.

    janRN, I must have ripped apart this block 3 times and even had to reprint the pp diagram. mine looks ok until you really take a good look at it - every time I saw a booboo I ripped it out and then finally remembered my first quilting class--the teacher told me that we need to have HUMILITY in our quilts--so there I am , sitting at my machine mumbling to myself -"humility in quilts is a good thing" Here is my Garden Path block.

    Anne I think it looks great! Love the bright colors. Where I'm having trouble is with the strips/paths-the red bars in yours. 2 are one size and 2 are smaller so they don't match up. I redid the center like you suggested-that worked great, thank you. Now I have to re-do the "paths". You guys make me green with envy with all your talent.

    janRN, Just cut the strips (path) longer than needed then trim them to size after sewing them on. Know what?? I have to start taking my own advice!!
