    Finished my second block today, which is actually block #1 in the series. So I'll be ready to post a finished block on Sept 3.

    there was a while there as it was still in progress when I thought I wasn't going to like the placement of the fabrics I chose, but once I was done I was quite pleased with the end result.

    Picked my fabric choices for the next block which will be the May block (Cactus Rose).
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I have ta comment on the "Mommy Dearest." #2DSon has a very dry sense o' humor. He has called me "Mommy Dearest" for most o' his life. LOL He has done it so long that now it is a term o' endearment.

    Bev, that made me laugh, when my two were little and they wanted something really really badly it was "Mommy Darling Dearest" and sometimes it sneaks in today also

    QuiltE no need to apologise, I knew what you meant

    Iwant to be a ‘Spiker’, too ! ! ! ! I love, love, love PPing. And I’m also a‘CHUNKY HACKER’; someday I will take all the snips & bits to make a huge queen size Bonnie Hunter Crumb Cake.

    My color scheme is the rainbow (solids) sprinkled with an array of batiks, & white muslin as the background.

    This scheme is wwwaaayyy out of my box: (1) I NEVER EVER USE WHITE ANYTHING; (2) I never use SOLIDS – my projects usually contain tonals/tone-on-tone ‘solids’ that have some ‘movement’ to them; (3) BLACK isn’t just my favorite color, it’s my signature & is used as the background for ALL my quilts.

    Here are my selections with a few batik samples. Hope my picture comes out OK; it looked HUMONGOUS on the preview page - it's my first time uploading to this site.

    This is gonna be fun . . . GP

    Groovy Pieces, I'd say your fabrics are groovy!!! They look beautiful. You remind me of me a little. I rarely use solid fabrics I love prints and tone on tone fabrics too. I rarely choose pastels but have to force myself to purchase them at times.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Just move that box with your SYE fabric closer to the chair and sewing machine and dive right in with us.

    Bet you will not end up yelling "Whoa!" to your sewing machine like I did the other day. I forgot about the foot pedal, and was using the 'go' button that would not stop!! Laughing at my stupid error!

    I have my (2) September blocks made, hanging on my design wall so I can look at them every day as I finish up my last commission quilt- (finished appliqueing the final borders today- just need to attach them, applique around the corners, then get it quilted & bound) I followed *loosely* with the colors on the patterns- with a light blue swirly pretty background where the yellow is on the originals- they turned out oh so pretty! this is going to be such a great project! for the blocks i'm using scraps- mostly batiks, but some others included too....excited for the day to show the first blocks- the GREAT thing about these 'sew alongs' are seeing everyones blocks- they always turn out so different and so spectacular!!! i'm excited.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy
