    I read something this morning that is so true. I did ask permission and she graciously said yes. So hope you enjoy it.

    Legacy of Love
    My stitches are not perfect
    And points they are not true
    The rows not nearly even
    But I love the work I do
    The peace upon my mind
    From designs I sit and sew
    Rejuvenates my heart
    And upon my work will show
    Trails of tiny stitches
    Across each quilt shall leap
    A legacy of love and warmth
    For those I leave to keep

    Just Jan, put all of your blocks together so we can see those pretty batiks. Here's my blocks all together that I've finished so far.
    Seeing mine this way sure looks like Fall to me.

    OK Libster, you asked for it! We should have finished 12 blocks by now, but I have 16. The last set is four that I made that are not in the bee. But since you want to see all my blocks, here they are; not in any particular arrangement yet. As I said before, I'm not much of a photographer! (Love your blocks and yes, they could be for fall.)

    Piecing the Past is a BOW. It has been going for several weeks. https://www.quiltingboard.com/quilti...t-t287811.html

    I haven't made any of them yet because I don't have any civil war fabrics and just can't decide if I want to go rogue and make them modern.

    Oh my! I couldn't decide on colors, which isn't anything new, but then I cut the HST's too big and sewed 2 backwards! I hoped today would go better than yesterday in the sewing room!

    Barb: Go rogue and modern with the Piecing the Past blocks. I saw one person is doing Christmas colors. There is a summer BOM from Piecing the Past and I think it starts next week. There is a group on this forum for the Piecing the Past blocks. I am also doing the Moda BOW and those blocks are 6.5" unfinished. I am behind on those.

    So here is Alaska Homestead:

    Here are some of my blocks and some of them are covered a little. I didn't want to rearrange my design wall to make room for them. Lol!

    In the above post, it should read a summer BOW not BOM.

    Love seeing your blocks together! You know, we'll need a gallery to show off all of our quilts when they're finished. Every single one will look different even though we used the same patterns.

    I finished the Baton Rouge block. I don't know why, but it looked more complicated than it was.

    I had earlier decided what the sashing should be. Sometimes things look good on paper, but not so good in real life. Well, I tried several different sashings. I really like the dark brown. Which one do you like?

    Barb, I have this same focus fabric for our Boom swap this time. I'm asking for no brown to be added to the blocks because I'm using brown TOT for my sashing and binding. I like the brown best, but that's just my preference.

    I like the blue stripe w/background strips..doesn't take away from the blocks. The dark brown kinda jumps out at you, and the one w/the paisley w/blue takes away from the blocks also. JMHO.. ;o)

    Barb, I like the medium brown (in your hand) for sashing. If you want more dark brown you could add dark brown cornerstones.

    Thanks for the responses. I'm glad I don't have to make a decision right now. The dark brown, in person, really makes the blocks pop. The other treatments are much more restful. Rest....Pop? That is the question.

    Yikes! I'd better get a move on or I'll fall behind again. I'm aiming for Wednesday to get my blocks made. I love looking at everyone's blocks - all so colorful, the same yet different. Can't wait to see some finished tops!

    My 13 blocks. Yes I added the propeller one.

    The pink blocks will go into a baby girl quilt eventually. I hope I can get these blocks to work on point and make a baby quilt no bigger than 40 by 50 per my volunteer group's request.
