Not sure I ever commented on this post, but it is worth commenting again. Beautiful!!!

This also gives me the idea to start putting in rows. I have A, B & C done.

No design wall yet. :) I love the way the bright colors pop on this quilt. I made most of the blocks using fabric from my stash. I think I bought only the background fabric. I had on every light possible in the room but it still looks shady. LOL

With the Virtual Weekend here on the board, I am doing a few Sylvia blocks as a break from Quilting borders.
Here are three
[ATTACH=CONFIG]565832[/ATTACH]E7 Ribboned Star, [ATTACH=CONFIG]565833[/ATTACH]E6 Jack in the Pulpit, [ATTACH=CONFIG]565834[/ATTACH]I think was an M. Don't remember name. It was very hard for me. Had to redo a couple times. I also went back and made a paper list of weeks and blocks Anael gave use originally. I had put in my Calendar, but that is lost. It is kinda nice to be marking them off.

Lovely blocks giquilt and great cutting :) :) The third one is a hard one to make and you did very well! Isn't it great to see the pile of blocks growing and also the markings on the list? I loved it!

Blocks H7 Hunters Star & L5 Pineapple. Think I have some motivation left over from the 365 challenge as I want to make a block a day.

The Hunter Star is eye catching with those colours and stripes! I love the Pineapple too though :) Nice fussy cutting !!

[ATTACH=CONFIG]566831[/ATTACH]These are the blocks from Week 35. New York Beauty & Old Maid's puzzle. This puts me 1/2 way through. I hope to keep working on the blocks. I just realize when I looked at the posted pic of Old Maid's puzzle that the block is wrong. Will go back and fix.

Sometimes you only notice you did something wrong when you look at the picture :) I love the blocks, the Old Maid's puzzle too with the mistake!! Design element :)

Congrats on being half way through!!

Gorgeous blocks. Glad to see someone besides me is still plugging away on these. I don't think I've put one together for several months, but the ones done are still on my design wall under about 3 other projects in the works. I just haven't spent much time in my studio since my Mom's open heart surgery in October, and when I do, it's piecing. Finally did a quilt for a friend on my long arm Thursday which felt so good to run thru. Hadn't turned the machine on for at least 3 months... Great to see your progress.
