    Hi Kirsty,
    I did get some fat quarters and background fabrics. I went for orangey tones (not a colour I normally use but wanted to do something different). I'll take a photo of them later.

    I have been in and out so much lately but, I have seen the blocks come in and they are all so different and lovely!
    I also have been sitting down little bits of time to look at the next block. . . . it looks complicated when you look at the picture of the finished block, but, I think it is a reasonably easy repeat!?!?!?!

    The second block isn't hard, just take your time assembling it otherwise it's going to look a bit weird, like mine did I finished the second block today.

    I would also say the second block really needs contrasting fabrics-the first one I did does not have enough-and it looks off. My second block has more contrast and will pop a bit more-I have learned my lession!!!

    I see orangey yellow-like cheddar cheese-not orange orange.

    I did the second block and it was a bit tricky. I am still using the Aunt Gracie, purple print and yellow background. I hope the colors come out right on the web.

    Your second block is lovely! Compared to the yellow the first one now is orange

    Oh no Rosy, I won't be first. I started a new quilt today. The design is called Ode to the 1930's but my quilt will be called Ode to my mom. She was born in 1924 and I'm sure she would have loved it. She died 14 years ago and I still miss her very much

    Thanks Rosy and Jan for the compliments! Jan, I'm trying a different approach now, no white as background and no bright colors.

    Thank you Rosy! It's not a book, it's a pattern from From my heart to your hands, designed by Lori Smith.

    Your third block is lovely!

    I might consider making 30ties to 40ties quilts until I run out of Aunt Gracie...

    All the blocks are so pretty...I'm always behind....Here's my first block...I'm only using the two fabrics shown in this block...I have too many different 30"s to pick from and I'm not going to drive myself crazy trying to decide which to use....

    Anne, what a pretty block; love the fabric you've chosen and the fussy cutting adds dimension to the star.

    PF, love that you show both size blocks together and they're so pretty.

    Love starting my morning looking at such pretties---now, off to work.

    Here are my second week blocks. The green was my fabric choice, the purpley blue was the OTL. There isn't quite enough contrast, but the pattern matched a tie he wore when he came to take me to the opening dinner of the college. I love seeing all of the blocks!!!!!!!
