Here are two more. The cups are for Bibliostone. I did a lot of EPP in the car and was able to put this one together. There are several more of these to come. The second wonky log cabin is for petthefabric

i hope to get three more EPP blocks finished in Omaha. Then lm preparing all the applique blocks. Then on the 2000+ mile ride home ​​​​​ I’ll cut out the shapes so I can quickly put them together! At any rate it’s forcing me to be organized.

I love the blocks NZ and Klaws made for me. Very original and the color choices are great. I need to look at the gallery and see what else has been made. This quilt is for my daughter. I think the family will love all the colors in the quilt.

Ooh, i just took a peek at all the MJP blocks. This is going to be a spectacular quilt. Sewbiz I love the print you added. Thank you everyone.

Did I forget to mention we were hunkering down because of a Kansas blizzard?

Thank you for my block, MJP. I love it! And what a back story to go with it! It’s fun to hear about all your travels.

Fine blocks, Klaws and mjpEncinitas! Mjp, you get brownie points for piecing while in the midst of that snowstorm. DS#2 lives in KS and said it was a doozy. Doozy, my word, not his.

We finished our taxes today. Woo hoo, ahead of schedule.

I keep hoping spring is here but we’re going back down to the 30s this weekend. Spring comes a bit later here than I was used to in GA.

Have a great rest of your day.

Love both your blocks, NZQ. I’ve made Crosstrack several times and always love the way it turns out. (Boy, am I missing making blocks this round.)

in Omaha I have access to my very first sewing machine and put some of them together.

These are from Tula Pinks city blocks. This is a go to block for me when I want to reaLly showcases fabric well. Klaws, sewbiz and Marcialee these blocks are for you, Marcia I usually dread working with pictorial fabric but I loved working with yours. The colors are so rich! And of course I loved the other two fabrics.
MLP, really beautiful blocks, safe travels

Mjp, I think I know which Kansas blizzard you are referring too. We have had several this winter and some of them have been really bad! I'm sorry you had to hunker down in a van for it! That is frightfully cold!

SBG, I like the Kaffe block too. I didn't know if I could pull off the disappearing pinwheel block with three colors, but I was pleasantly surprised!

I only have one more block to make, then it will be clearing off the sewing desks and switching gears to make Easter dresses for my girls! I have this cute old fashioned sailor dress pattern that I think will work perfectly. Growing up I always wanted a sailor dress but never got one.
