    Hi Girls, As usual I'm in a warp mode and only got as far as my fabric selection for these blocks. I know #59 is going to drive me crazy---I get dizzy just looking at the picture in the book!!!

    Blocks 59 & 60. Day and night was between a rock and a hard place...so its a stream, rocks and mountains. 59 is slilghtly different from original block.

    QNS I love both of your blocks but really like your interpretation of 59. Usually only see it in black/white or 2 color combos. You are so good at picking out colors (which is the hardest thing for me). Also love your "stories".

    Your blocks are so unique--now you have to write or sew a book telling your stories of each block and keep it with the finished quilt. Anne

    I am home just for tonight; then it's back to the Cardiovascular ICU waiting room tomorrow. While I'm here, am sending picture of my blocks 59 & 60. Next week, along with 61 & 62 pictures, will give quick re-cap of this horrid week.

    Ditto for the WOW !!! These are great blocks ! ALL of them. Granny Q, Your blocks still amaze me. Your # 60 reminds me of a "crown" or "Bridal headpiece" very pretty.

    I'm trying to think of a way to shrink the middle a bit. get a piece of corrurgated? cardboard.stick pins in the block around the edges first and then on the major seams from the outside towards the middle--until uou get to where it won't lay flat--then spray or dab it with water in the area where it won't lay
    flat and let it air dry. See if that helps. I know that when I spray fabric with the steam iron it goes back to it's original size. this may help to flatten it. Anne

    Here are my next two blocks, feels good to be back up to date.
    Did not enjoy #59, as much as I tried and resewed three times I could not get the centre to line up. Oh well the quilt police can nab me :roll:

    Oh thank you Anne, I'll try that. I tried ironing the seams open, as was recommended, but I don't think that helped. May have to do that one over - ugh!!!

    What is it with scanners lately??? I did somthing wrong a couple of weeks ago by clicking on the wrong box and my whole printer/scanner/fax went crazy--wouldn't let me shut down--had to take the battery out--now it wants the software CD that I can't find--had to get my other printer out of mothballs. I almost gave it away!!! still hunting for the CD :-( :-(

    I don't know, but it's crazy! DH found the CD, first uninstalled the program, then reinstalled the program and it still won't read it...has been on the phone with HP, but still needs something! Aarrrggghhh!

    Good luck with your search...wishing you good vibes... :D

    Wow-these are all beautiful. I liked these 2 blocks (I know-I'm very anal and loved all the small pieces). I think everyone did great.
