Here are teh rest of the blocks that go with this set of 20. Have not decided how I am going to assemble them into a quilt, so I don't know if I'm going to need to make more.

I wanted to try these using my vintage lace and see how that worked.

Not decided if I like having the pastel colors, or if I'd prefer it with white/beige tones only. I think the pastels may make it look more like a baby quilt than I was hoping for.

Your blocks are beautiful! When you quilt it, won't the quilting compete with the fancy stitches?

not if I'm careful how I quilt. I may use invisible thread and just outline the more open areas of the design. Or possibly go just along side of the satin stitching around the fabrics. If I do sashing I'll quilt more there, and if not I'll stitch in the ditch around each block.

beautiful Macy. Must be something in the air, I've been playing with crazy samples. The most recent reject was with gifted selvedges from a member here. but I still think the idea has possibilities. Looking forward to seeing your blocks going together.
