    Diamonds, your block is really beautiful! Nice fabrics! You have to autograph it! That way Sharon will know it's from you! Even your initials in a corner. Don't you dare mess up that pretty thing! LOL! I doubt you could. Really pretty block! KUDOS! I love it!

    Snowb and ShellyQ, you guys amaze me! Perfect piecing and extra touches. You know Sharon will be so thrilled. Did you send Kleenex with those blocks? They are so pretty! :D :D :D

    Diamonds, How about Silver or Gold ink for a signature in the middle block. That would be really pretty.

    I did try that :lol: It has Diamonds on the back in the center block... Definately not what I thought it would look like. :( .. I was very relieved I did not try it on the front first...

    DonnaRae~~ Sorry to hear you had to go through cancer sugery, but please know that cancer is no longer a death sentence. A lot has been learned since those days. I, too, have had cancer...mine was the vocal chords. I had my first surgery for it in 1995, then it stayed dormant (it was in the membrane, but wasn't spreading) until 2001. I took both chemo and radiation for 7 weeks. I have since had some basal cell cancers removed from my hand and wrist. My medical oncologist dismissed me in June, 2007. I still see my surgeon every 4 months, but I'm cancer free.

    I refused to read all the info that well-meaning friends sent me about cancer, but instead watched funny movies and shows and laughed. In fact, sometimes I had my doctor's in stitches. I was never sick from the chemo, although toward the end of treatments I was really tired. However, I finished treatments in Aug., 2001 and we took the grandkids to Disney World in Oct. and I rode every ride. I had also gotten a total knee replacement in Jan., 2001 so that was a memorable year for me even without 9/11.

    Take care of yourself.

    Chele, Thank-you so much for the compliment. If I were in Sharon's shoes, I would probably need a whole carton of kleenex. LOL :!: It is amazing with the same pattern & color scheme, how different & beautiful the blocks all look. :thumbup: :roll:

    Minda, your blues are stunning :thumbup: . Thanks Chele, I'm not very good with words in this sort of situation so it's real nice to be able to do a little something for her.

    Here's my 2 blocks. One I signed, and one I put a quote on. Sorry, I don't know why they are so dark - it didn't seem dark in my office when I took the pics!

    I know I said I probably wouldn't make a block to send. I have been having lots of tension problems on one machine. REALLY, the main reason is I hate to put my amateur work up against you pros. WOW! There are some beautiful blocks posted on here.

    But since there may not be enough to make a quilt, I made this one and I guess I'll send it.

    For Sharon

    Ruth and Minda likes the blue print.........THANKS!.... Well, I'll bet somebody sometime had pj's or boxer shorts from this fabric. My cousin got this from a garment factory and gave my aunt a huge box of scraps. I inherited it and washed several loads of the scraps.........many shades of blues and a couple stacks of sage green and a lot of white. The white is a crisp fabric which I suspect is polyester/cotton blend. I don't use much blue except navy and royal blues. So the navy I already had and the print scraps went well together.

    on the go, loved your block and i know sharon will treasure it.
    the fab is fab. in the old days a lot of quilts were made with "shirting" and some was aquired just like yours was. what a great way to make a "green" project.
    p.s. your workmanship is very good. don't ever be reluctant to show your work. no quilt police here :wink:

    I FINALLY got these done! Sorry it took for what seemed like forever! The girls picked the fabric, the solid blue and white is from Jasmine's Halloween costume, the drk blue check w/o lady bugs is from Alicia's, the tiny blue floral and the check with lady bugs my mother donated. The girls had fun doing the thumbprint people in the center squares! Thanks Wendy for the wonderful idea!! Sorry about the quality of the pics, my cam has issues lately!

    It says forever in our hearts, John and Lisa 2008
