    Very pretty, Anne!! These weeks have gone by so fast; can't believe we're this far along.
    I love the variety of fabrics you're using-bright and cheery.

    Oh how fun, can't wait to see what everyone has done all in one place! Great job Anne - very colorful, it is going to make a wonderful quilt. I'll photo mine when I finish this weeks blocks. I just happen to put them up on my display wall last week. It makes me so happy to see them up there.

    Beautiful job, Anael. Love your colors. I expecially like the Block 1 with the purple flowers. They're all outstanding.

    I have each of my blocks filed separately in plastic sleeves in a binder, so please pardon me if I don't take them apart to photo. I will enjoy seeing what you all have done......just too lazy to pull all mine out to photo....I have done most of them, so far. I only skip the ones with that dreaded "Y seam". I pp and no way do I want to deal with that. This is suppose to be fun.... so I pick and choose.......

    WendiQ ... Did you know you can still do Y-seams in PPing? I feared them in FWS and then discovered they came together prettty slick. You just sew to the corner and not past it, then twist it around and join to the other side, only coming to the corner (same stitch) as the first seam.

    Though I will nudge you to take them out of their sleeves and do the group photo. You'll find it so rewarding for yourself, and help inspire you for your next blocks. (or atleast photo the group with the blocks in the sleeves? (and too, yes, we all want to see them!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Honchey and Anael ... Oh so nice to see the grouping. Amazing how the colours are playing together from one block to the other. Both of you have some turquoise and I really like how it's pulling out the subtleties of it in other blocks.

    Moi? ... I'm not going to post mine til I have the full grouping ready! All these groups though are going to help inspire me towards some of the fabric choices I'll make in future blocks. (First, I'll finish up my FWS! ..... and get this week's blocks done then later catch up on the earlier blocks)

    Wow, seeing all of the blocks together is really neat. I'll get my picture in the morning and post it.

    Honchey...do I see a missing apple tree and that's why you have only 15? Just saying....but that came when you were having a multitude of problems with your computer....then you got sick....it sure isn't one to tackle when there are so many distractions!!! There would be a smiley face winking' at you if I knew where to find them.

    Honchey...do I see a missing apple tree and that's why you have only 15? That's not the only missing one....Apple tree, The Depot & Broken Heart are also missing... I found the apple print I wanted to use after the week it was supposed to get done...couldn't decide on the background fabric for The Depot and I ran away from the Broken Heart when I saw all those little triangles and didn't want to do it...I will do them inbetween all the blocks coming up...I now see that the pping on the larger blocks is sooooo much easier than the 6" blocks from the FWS Quilt-Along. I don't know why ....there are days that all I want to do is cut fabric and won't even go near the machine and then just work on another project...Then I go back to the current one. figure it out??? I can't. It's coming along ok. H

    Honchey ... It happens to me! And thus why I often have more than one thing on the go. If my brain isn't in the zone for one then I switch over to another project. At first, I hopscotched around a lot on FWS .... I'd want to sew but some of the blocks just seemed so complicated so I'd look for the easy peasy ones or ones I knew I could nab in the time I had at the moment. I'll probably do more of that with PC. And sometimes, I just want something simple and mindless to sew ... you know, goof proof! Then there are times when I just don't go near the machine. Is it burnout?

    You're being productive, with all your cutting! think about how quick those blocks will sew up, when you have no decisions to make about fabrics, and the pieces are all cut and ready to go!!!!

    Honchey...I feel that way on occasion too. Maybe why I have several projects going at once.

    Here is my show and tell.

    Beautiful, Ggal. What a nice selection and balance of colors. Love the pink roses in the Depot something block. They all look great.

    Wouldn't it be pretty used for a whole quilt?

    QuiltE...yes when I look close, I see a couple of duplications. I do like the rose and pink block as well. Thanks everyone for your compliments. You are all very encouraging.
