    What a great "block show". I love all of them--each one is so unique. Now I can't wait to see more!!

    I am fasinated by the different colors chosen for the same block. Everybody has done a great job and made gorgous blocks. Now i need to get started.

    It is amazing that the same pattern was used on all these blocks but each one is so unique. Not sure I could say which one is my favorite. I hope I can find time to join in on this.

    I really like the same color o' your settin' triangles bein' in the actual block. It is so unitin'.

    Oh! ckcowl I'm in love w/the blue & how it accents your block!

    I just love how ya always choose a main fabric. Is there any roses in that triangle fabric? Your block is just awesome!

    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.

    This block just shines.

    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!!
    Such movement in your block! I can't take my eyes off o' it.

    Here's my first block. Can you believe I created an inset seam for myself. Sometimes I TRY to make my life harder. You can bet I won't do that again.

    Anyway, I tested it with my dinner plates and it should be the perfect size without adding anymore to the edges other than the binding, which I will do in black. I usually bite off more than I can chew, so this is really fun making something manageable! Can't wait to do my next placemat.

    QNS I should be doing it your way and I would've hopefully avoided my mistake (see above). Can't wait to see yours.

    Dublb does such a great job complimenting each block...I will just echo her sentiments. Everyone has done such a great job. I can't wait to see some more.

    So far 14 have been posted. What was the unofficial count last time? 50 some? Lots more eye candy to come!

    Success this morning, got the machine threaded finally! Challenge of impaired vision...getting the thread in the right channel before I can sew. Onward! Have a great day.

    Yes, Cindy, I will be happy if mine turns out as good as yours. Lots of beautiful work here and beautiful colors, looking forward to seeing more. It does take a mite of time for each slice/section of the 'pizza' block...at least for me. Measurements from Mirabelle really truly helps. Thank you Mirabelle.

    You are so right QNS! The measurements are a Godsend. What I started last night was to sew all 6 sections at a time and. So I'm repeating the same step 6 times. No all my slices didn't get done but I think this is going faster than if I did each slice before moving onto the next.

    CindyA your block was the first thing that greeted me when I opened the thread and all I could say was "Oh". The block reminds me of calla lilies. You are going to have a beautiful set of place mats. You might want to run out and buy clear dishes and eat no food from them.

    Everyone's blocks are so beautiful.

    Speaking of QE--poor girl she's going to spend hours catching up on what she's missed!

    So many great blocks ... so many purples and pinks ... oh my!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I thought of candles not flowers. Fussy cut the blue print to form the "candle" then the flame and the softer light surrounding it. Using the blue print as the outer border of this table runner after a blue narrow border.Name:  002.JPG
