    Love my bunny blocks, thanks HAV, GramE and Moonrise. Moonrise the WOW was just an option so your blocks are perfect as is.

    All the cat blocks are so fun.

    Will probably go home and work on my blocks next week.

    It will be very interesting I'm sure, he's never had any major surgery. All he's thinking about is what he won't be able to do. I will try to hide in the sewing room....

The second we were a bit better prepared. How do people who live on their own manage after having that surgery. DH had to be hooked up to a cooling pack, I canít remember how long but it was another thing they didnít warn us about! You two sound like us, alternating illness/conditions!
    Love the blocks ladies, thank you all so much. Eye appts. today for both of us, just the yearly thing, getting those squared away before we head to Florida for the winter. Hopefully I can start on Blocks tomorrow, won't be able to see well enough with dilated eyes today

    Libster the blocks that you made are lovely. The first one for me is that a light blue ombre or is grey?

    More pretty block eye-candy, Libster and GramE.

    The bunny reminds me of a hare, with his long body. That will be a really cute quilt.

    I think your points are perfect. We are our own worst critics.

    Good morning, Early Birds. Trying to keep on top of the blocks but at this speed, I'll always be behind. Unfortunately, I don't really feel better. I've got some more doc appts scheduled and will probably need additional tests. My symptoms are unpleasant but not painful but the anxiety of not knowing what's going on in my body is the real problem. While I'm calm and relaxed, guaranteed to last no longer than an hour or two, I'm catching up on your blocks. I appreciate your kind words and thoughts. Thanks. you all.

    GramE, I love your double star block for Libster. Beautiful work!

    Thanks, Libster. Your Sitting Pretty block is purrrr-fect. Hav's quilt will be amazing.

    Hav4boys, I made another block for you this morning. It's called "Sitting Pretty" from Quiltmaker's 1000 Blocks.
    Hav, I'll go back and find it. Thanks for the heads up.

    Glad you received good news from your doc, Jaba. Sorry to hear hubby needs surgery. Hope he recovers as swiftly as possible.

    Hubby Bill has to have surgery on the 22nd. Torn roto cup and tendon repair. We'll be quite the pair for a month or so
    Nice block for Terriamn. Looks perfect!

    Hav, so many bunny blocks and all different. I love the tail on this little guy!

    It'll be fine. Don't be upset. GramE said she has extra.

    Libster, you are on a roll with your blocks. All wonderrful!

    Moonrise, you are amazing! I cannot imagine doing all those blocks in one night. Congrats on your beautiful work!

    Terriamn - I wasn't sure if WOW was meant as an option if a third color was needed, or if it was a requirement. I just used shades of gray, but if WOW is required, I can easily change up the blocks a bit and add it in.

    Gotta work on my craft show stuff the rest of this week, since I have a big one on Saturday, but I'll get started on more blocks ASAP.

    And now ... I'm going to bed! Y'all have a great day, and I hope y'all like the blocks!

    Yes, this is correct. You can use as many puple, in this case, fabrics as you like. Just don't add another color to the block unless it is a small print that "reads" purple.

    Thank you H4B love the bunny and the fabric you used for it

    GramE thank you for the bunny block it is super sweet. Do you know the name of the pattern

    My sis and I went to a late lunch and then to a couple thrift stores, after I had checked out she told me to check out some fabric I hadnít noticed. It was a very pretty light blue outside fabric perfect for making flags. Now I really canít wait to get home and give one a try. Canít believe she will be heading home tomorrow. Makes me very sad, but she enjoys it here as much as me and is considering buying a unit here.

    Terri, the bunny block with the hint of a Star is called Padre Island Star and I downloaded it from patchworksquare.com. But it’s been a while since I downloaded, so I haven’t been back to that site.

    The only problem I have is they give 3 sizes of pattern and then the instructions. 6”, 9”, 12” and on my screen touch iPad it is very, very, very easy to accidentally scroll to the next page which is a different size! I should print it but I prop the iPad up and work from there and have got bitten by wanting a 12” sq and cutting half my pieces for a 9”! Ouch, that hurts! Especially when working w/f8’s. Hopefully the smaller cuts will be in my portion of the fabric.
