    Hey mtngrl - It doesn't matter what speed you travel at, it's just great to see you are still in this.

    I love all your colour combos and that flag is wonderful!

    Your blocks are nice! Wonderful to see them all together. I especially like how you made your star into a flag.

    hugs, Jup

    Irene, I agree with Jupiter - they look wonderful.

    The pressure is on Jupiter - we are waiting expectantly now.

    Catch up week May 29

    Deecee,
    As expected, your blocks are stunning. You've done such a good job choosing your colors and your sewing is beautiful.

    Thank you Irene. I think everyone has chosen beautiful colour combinations.

    Sometimes I wish I had chosen a few more colours so I have a bit more variety to chose from but then I suppose I would spend all my time making those decisions.

    I must admit I deliberately chose a limited number of colours for this project. I usually like lots of variety but then spend loads of time deciding what to put together. Seeing I am a slow worker, I thought having less choice would streamline this project for me - which it has.

    As you can see, I've been busy.... just not prolific with the photos!

    The 6" collection is coming out wonderfully.

    The 12" collection now included blocks that are not Pieced Applique, but they are 12" blocks in the right fabrics. I think that bunch will make a great quilt too.

    I love looking at all the blocks you all are making. Its cool to see how different fabrics can make the same pattern block look so different from one another.

    ...and I am so-o-o thankful for the "catch up" weeks! lol

    hugs, Jup

    Did you realize that Starlight and Spinning Star are the same block except for the shape in the corners? Starlight has a square and Spinning Star has a triangle there...Duh!

    And yet they don't look alike....

    Beautiful blocks Jupiter - you have been busy with both sets.

    I did have a deja vu moment when making Starlight and looked back through my blocks to see why - those tiny little squares again!

    I must say that your schedule is very well designed with the catch up weeks, some BOW's can get a bit overwhelming without any breaks to gather your thoughts or catch up if needed.

    Those 'catch up' weeks were a great idea. I know I tend to over-fill my time schedule. I put those weeks in so I could keep up! lol

    I was being polite and letting you go first Irene. :D :D Very nicely done!

    Edit - I had to look twice to see if they were the same block.

    You're right, Deecee. The two blocks look so different. I think yours looks more like a kaleidoscope. You have to look closely to see that they are really the same pattern. Interesting.

    Hi DeeCee.... very nice. You two are making me look bad... I've really got to "kick my mule" into high gear and get stitching!

    hugs, Jup

    Hi guys! Did you miss me?

    I am back - traveling and moving are finally done and I've resurfaced in Florida. I still have a lot of unpacking and organizing to do, but I am anxious to get back to sewing.

    I'm way behind on my blocks, but I do have this week's block finished (because I did it before I left) - but the pic is on my other computer that is not connected to the internet yet! Once I get all that figured out, I will post.

    Irene - I love how the center of your block looks like a little sun! What a happy block! Deecee - beautiful work, as always.

    Hey there Lara - we did miss you. :D Correct block too. :thumbup: Good job.

    Glad to hear you are back and getting settled.

    The drop in our numbers (even if it was only by one) made a significant dint in the pics being posted.

    Jupiter - you had better get a move on with this week's block now. :shock:

    Hi Lara,
    Glad you're finally in Florida and back with us. We missed you. Your block is lovely, just like your others. Now dig out your sewing machine and continue keeping us company making blocks :)
