Beautiful blocks, Bibliostone. I don't keep track of time making blocks, either. I'm a fast sewer but choosing just the right block from my many books and online resources might take me days! It's the slowest part of the process for me. Once I have the plan, I can make the block pretty fast. The one I made that was paper pieced took longer to construct than the traditionally pieced ones, but that may be because I was rusty and hadn't PP'd in a while.

Janice, wow what great science fabric for Ibex! And there's nothing wrong with a simple block. Sometimes the fabric just needs to shine. Very cool block.

Thinking of you H4b. Wish I could bring her back healthy and hale.

I”m so slow on these blocks. It takes me 3 or 4 hours each and that doesn’t count design and shopping time. I usually use at least 2 1/2 months to finish them. I don’t shop too much. Whenever I do I buy remnants that I think might be useful in booms.

Choosing the block and picking the fabric takes me way longer then the actual sewing of the block. Unless I am improvising then it takes me forever to line everything up

Janice perfect science block. I think some of the simpler blocks work best to showcase certain fabrics

I take a long time with finding the pattern and making a block. I have made way too many mistakes on F8 !
Here are my blocks for Marcilee and Terriamn.

MJP - love how you used her busy fabric and added the applique. I will have to remember that!
Janice - your science fabric was a great match!

Janice this is lovely! Sometimes the simpler patterns are the best ones to showcase the hidden message. My granddaughter is going to be crazy for this square because of the science-themed fabric! Thank you for this beautiful block!

edited after I finished reading the page -- all of us think the same about the "background", lol. No wonder we love working together on these booms, right?

I am so impressed with everyone's blocks. Lovely and inspirational!
