GramE I think it is the same block with a different layout as in colors. It is a Nine Patch with 4 inch squares and quarter square triangles. With both blocks I tried to get as much of their fabric in as I could, just with fussy cutting it is not always as efficient so I had to use some other fabrics.

Marcialee, great blocks! I really love the one you made for me, the green looks great in it!

Sewbiz, did you meet Givio through the Boom's? Or did you know her otherwise? I'm sure I probably know this, but don't recall. Beautiful quilt, what a gift to her family!

Here is my block for Anna - I only got one f8 for her and decided to make up this block. Two arrows facing upwards and crossing signifies friendship (as per all the symbol charts I found)
I posted the oops - a broken arrow!! so you can see the final is atleast not broken!
TG, these arrows are pretty cool.

I hope these are to you liking and will fit in.

Finished the BOOM just in time. Friday night my 26 year old son (6'4" abd 280 pounds) was jumped leaving the movies by 8 -10 kids. He was pulled down by his hair and repeatedly kicked. He has a broken back. Thankfully no brain bleed of kidney damage. I am so angry. He is sick a gentle and kind spirited man. The police are searching for the kids. Thankfully there were cameras at the movies.
Hav4boys, my heart breaks for your son and the whole family. Sending prayers for a speedy recovery. I hope the whole group of people are brought to justice. This is just senseless cruelty.

Here is a block for Lstew2212. It's called 1930's Block, from Quilters Cache.
NZquilter, I love my block, Thank you.

Tons of fussy cutting.
Givio was a really good quilter, I loved seeing her work. Sewbizgirl, Im glad you could finish this quilt for her family.

LOVED your block show, Marcialee! You posted 13 blocks. Do you have pics of the rest? You should have about 6 more (including mine). I hope you can show us the others...

Jayne, I met Givio several years ago in the Pony Club thread. We were making the 1930's Farmer's Wife blocks then. We talked a lot through pms and email... several times a week, faithfully. Huge messages, sharing life, thoughts and plans. Now my inbox is so quiet. It was always a happy day when there was a number in my bell.

Good morning. Its sleeting here but should stop soon. Unfortunately temps are dropping into the teens today so it wont be pleasant. Spent all day yesterday with dgd Charlie here at the house. Her folks were working so she stayed longer than usual. She took a nap on the guest bed, a first for her, and woke up in a happy mood. It was a great day. Were starting to prep her for coming here when her mom goes into labor. Third week of April is when the new baby is expected. Soon now!

Great blocks, Marcialee! A block show.

SBG, If Marcialee doesnt post the rest of the pix in the next few days, Ill open her package and do it.

Does anyone have any exciting or interesting plans for the weekend? Well be hanging out here. Ive got my Boom 21 blocks on the design wall and am trying to figure out what to do with them.

Have a lovely day, Begonias!

Janice nothing exciting going on here. We have dropped down to the 40’s again but next week is supposed to be beautiful. Think this weekend will be a good time to sew.

How exciting that the new baby will be here soon and Charlie gets to spend more time with you
