I like the scrappy with the outer block controlled. however you could also do a more controlled look to get more definiton to the chains.

this is a quilt using 1.5" blocks - and it was controlled in that the blocks were sorted to Light/Dark/Red/yellow
so if you sorted yours and put the inner block as the darkest and then worked out to light with a solid as the outer block - that would be very interesting too.

MacyBaby, That's a lot of 1.5 squares. Beautiful quilt.

Redstiletto's, I like the controlled look.

Good morning, all,

All feedback for the candies already received should be posted by now. If you do not see something from me Please let me know and I'll try again

There are two, however, I couldn't find: The first was PattiJo?
The second one is someone who I don't have their screen name. So Carolyn from Venice, FL, if you could let me know who you are, I'll mark as received and then go give you positive feedback

Working until 2:30 today and then up to the cottage we go. Sewing time. Whoot! Whoot!

My cards went out yesterday! I taped around the edges, so thanks for that tip. I hate to think of those fabrics getting free before they arrive at the Birthday house!

Just closed my eyes and hit the buy button on a ruler and a ruler foot for my sewing machine. I've been eyeing it and mulling it over for about a year. I hope it turns out to be a good investment and fun.

Barbarakibler23, good luck with your move. Fun, but a lot of work! Hopefully your snow is melting there and everything is not a mud mess while you have to move. I think your state and my state were both part of the huge storm a few weeks back, and now we are flooding in my area from all the snow melting. I am not complaining, though, cause our flooding is minor compared to Nebraska and some other states south and west of Minnesota.. I feel so much empathy for them all. Have a good weekend and hopefully you don't get too stressed about all that you have gong on in the next few days.
