    We have a great bunch of blocks and quilters in this group. I'm so glad I happened on this site. Here are my 57 & 58 finally done! I didn't really enjoy doing 57--the last 4 corner sets were a pain to sew on--even w/PP they were wonky. 58 is named aptly--it was a dream to sew.

    Weezie, hope all is well with you & Hubby.

    Wowser! I am not sure where my thinker is?? I finished what I thought was my 4" #57 Morning Block in Scrappy fabrics.
    And since posting it is not exactly up to specs. Can you see the problem?pretty noticable..

    Well, will think on this one, Do I make a new one? I really kind of like this one other than the mistake of course.

    LOL! I do these things all of the time! I have yet to make a PERFECT quilt, because I tend to just leave it :D

    It took me a few minutes + a quick reference to the book to find it. I wouldn't change it.

    I'm working off and on on 59 and twice I sewed in reverse---so I decided to keep it that way and going to the 3rd square I did it again-- now I don't have enough fabric to recut the dark blue and I have to start out all over again from SCRATCH!! Anne

    Hey! Me too! I'm galloping by on my horse and I can't tell what's wrong with your block....LOL

    I have one backwards block so far and another bird one where I never got the HSTs in the right place. Unless you are going to give someone the book as a reference when they look at your quilt, I doubt anyone is going to notice. I doubt that they'd care even if they did notice!

    Jags-what mistake? I see an artistic decision; beautiful.

    The thermometer has dipped low here today (minus 10C), and many of your blocks make me feel like there is hope of spring!!

    Here are my two ...
    #57 Morning ... Really botched this fabric mix. Certainly a candidate for a re-do later on.
    and
    #58 Mother's Dream ... Much happier here!

    Hey, don't be so hard on yourself. I certainly have a few blocks where the color choices weren't the best. However, when you put together a quilt with a 101 (or 111?) blocks, no one is going to pick out the one (or two) that aren't exactly perfect!!!

    And then there's construction! There's more than two that I'm just trusting to sheer numbers to hide them in! LOL!

    I'm tearing my hair out on 83 Spider Web. The part that was the hardest I got together fairly easily. But the easy part came out as mirror image to what they're supposed to be. Back to the cutting and stitching. At least it was the two easy pieces!

    I love your Mother's Dream. Your sashing squares are terrific!

    And as you said ... don't be so hard on yourself! If it's a mirror image, so what? .... it was your design choice! Forget about the recutting and move onwards! I enjoyed doing that one ... and heck, maybe mine was mirror imaged too?

    I just bought the cornerstone material this week ... took all my blocks to my LQS and we played for awhile. Certainly wasn't what I thought I'd have! I can still change it up if I want, if I am not totally taken by it when the time comes. I also bought a different fabric for the setting triangles. Or could use it for both, possibly? Forgot to get it out before I photo'd, and will probably include in future shots!

    Now my dear ... stop sewing, and get yourself off to bed, before Santa comes!

    Merry Christmas, everyone!!!

    This has thread has had the prettiest fabrics. QNSue, I love my morning glories. I have one variety (Grandpa Ott's from Seedsavers) that reseeds itself wonderfully. Have an old steel bed frame next to the barn (red) and every fall it's full of the prettiest purple blooms. Not much else will grow there, but the MG's do. I'm careful where I put those babies though--they can be worse than weeds. Another two blocks for show casing a center motif. Great job. And QE--they can't all be perfect fabric choices or how would we learn? But the fabric may be a great choice in the overall quilt. Your great piecing makes up for it!
