    I have been making the back side of this quilt...plugging away at the more difficult blocks mostly. Plan to QAYG with identical-ish reverse blocks on the back.

    Tracy, that is going to be gorgeous! I love the bright colors and your idea to make reversible. You are a creative chica!

    I agree with just keep on going! I'm no where near done, but I have until August to get this one done for my niece! I've been enjoying learning different techniques! I'll probably be out of the next one though curves are past my experience....and I still haven't tried a paper piecing one I'll just have to play it by ear when August/September gets here...

    I agree with the other ladies.. I'm definitely down for continuing with this one. I have been busy with a swap so I'm a little behind on the blocks, but I like the idea of always having them to come back to to practice on.

    And I vote August for the next QA.

    I am waiting for new blocks too. I haven't 'seen' wyldwytch for a couple days, maybe something came up she had to tend to. Let's be patient and I'm sure she'll check in soon. Good time to catch up if needed.

    Sierra Nevadas? Hey, I can get a weeks vacation and come stay in yuor pc of heaven. I am pretty good at curves, too. Huh? Huh? Can I? Can I?? HaHa!! We'd have a ball! Soon as I hit the lottery, it is my intention to meet every one of you.

I can't do exercises in frustration I think I need classes for those and no classes up here unfortunately. I would love to join our quilting guild but they meet on my clinic days and its 60.00 to join plus fees for each class. yikes. sorta not happening especially when in winter months even if it were a day I was home its higher up in elevation and there is a ton of snow. so until I can find a quilter near by who wants to come work with me here I am outta luck Wyldewytch your doing a great job and the joy I hear in everyones postings when they do a block and it comes out! and then there is a batch to show all at once the TADA moments.. worth all the hard work. Thanks for hosting this. I will have to finish mine a bit from now. For what its worth August seems like a better time, come closer to Christmas everyone is so busy with other projects they might have a hard time following along and doing those too.

    Whew! This particular block gave me fits! I am now doing both the dark side and the light side at once since I am caught up dark with light. I sewed and trimmed 16 blocks wrong making ripping impossible.

    Dark blocks staggering over light ones

    3 more and I think I will stick with 2 of the easier ones. I can't spend from 7 am till nearly 1:30 pm on 2 blocks!!!

    Why not?, Tracey? What better to do than sew!! LOL Yea, when you spend as much time ripping as sewing (or more) it gets a little un-fun!! It is nice to stretch your abilities though, that sense of satisfaction when it is done and right. Love your blocks. And I kind of come from the "dark side", so I really like them.

    Wow they are looking great. Right now I am trying to get motivated to do a wholecloth quilt. I am going to machine quilt itnfollowing the pattern on the fabric. The back is going to be black, using varigated thread of the colors that are on the front fabric. I cant wait to see how it turns out, hoping to use it in my vehicle....lol

    Think I will do the moonshine next. I have started to enjoy paper piecing. Thanks for the new blocks, I have a few to catch up I am finishing the Lemon star. I have started it 3 times. I will overcome!!! I have slowed down on working on the block and keep repeating the Iron and starch are my friends. It is finally starting to work, I found that I get a quarter section done then go to something else. Will post pictures as soon as I finish the star.
