    Such lovely ... gorgeous .. blocks so far!! And all so different! Different from mine as well, which I will post this evening when I get home from work.

    We don't have to pick a favorite do we? I can't!!!

    Juanita, your block is lovely! It took me quite a while too to make the block and I'm used to PP so it's not just you

    I picked fabric, but now after looking at all these beauties, I am second guessing myself.

    SYE 1st block

    Were we not supposed to put the background fabric on our blocks? I did. Everyone's blocks so far are really pretty. Can't wait to see them all. My picture is really pale. May be I should try it again.Katie

    Jeanie, I just have to say your block is beautiful! It looks a lot like mine colorwise

    Katie, I will put the background fabric on the blocks once I made a few. I still didn't decide what color to use on the setting triangles.

    Sye

    I hope this picture is a better picture. I haven't been happy with this camera since I got it. But let's give it a try. Still not a good picture but you can get the idea. That is actually a pretty pink, and the fabric is brighter. It's Northcott's "fragrance"

    just browsed through before adding mine- wow! what a great variety of fabulous blocks! it is always so fun to see how we all do something different with the same block and make them so *original/personal* I love projects like these! so, anyhow---here is mine- I plan to use the same light blue (settings) for all of my blocks- the interior will be scrappy-loosely following what each pattern calls for.

    KLGreene ... some of us are leaving the blocks as hexies and making place mats. There is no "supposed to" or "not supposed to" with regard to any of the blocks - we are all following our own drummers

    More eye candy!! So many pretty blocks coming.

    I'm almost tempted to make another set with some different colors now that I see these!!

    All I can say is WOW! Thank goodness I don't have to try to pick a favorite. It would be an impossible task. They're all gorgeous! Good job ladies.
    If I'm too busy to quilt, something else has to go.

    marne I'm sure the fabric you have chosen is just great--so don't be afraid to go with what you have picked. I'm inspired to go get mine started. Wish me luck.

    I love, love , love everyone's that has been posted not a one in the bunch that I would not like to own. They all are so beautiful and unique to each individual.

    Here is my 1st block have not added the sides to make it a rectangle as not sure what color I want to use may wait till the end to make a decision on that part. Sticking with the suggested colors at this point the really dark color is actually purple but at least on my monitor it looks almost dark blue or even black.

    Ok ... here's mine. Soooo different from the others. Can you tell I have a weakness for prints with gold??? You cant' see it in this pic, but even the green fabric has gold edging on each "branch"


    I'll be using the same background fabric, and the same green fabric for the "leaf" part in all the blocks. As you can see I changed the color between each of the flowers to the leaf fabric to look like stems. I fussy cut medallions for the center of the flower. Fussy cutting is not so much fun when paper piecing!!
