    GracefulAnn and K-Roll - great blocks from both of you. Glad you had a good vacation K-Roll.

    I have been unsewing. Chain pieced the side border on all five blocks of set 3 and then decided I didn't like the colour. Shame I didn't just do a test one first but I was trying to hurry myself along.

    DeeCee I hate reverse sewing!!! I've done the same thing and thought I should have done a test block first. We live and learn don't we.

    Here's my fourth set. I didn't give him and eye because for mine I want to put a button eye on. I thought I'd leave that up to you too.

    FYI, ladies, I use tear-away stabilizer behind my appliqués and I can never quite tear away everything in between the tiny zigzag stitches. I believe it washes away. I hope you don't mind?

    Great blocks everyone! Love the cute turkey, chester & twig, the campfire, & hexie. Such fun blocks.

    Florida & the beach sound great to me right now with our hot Utah weather.

    Cute turkey and great idea for a button eye.

    Not sure if I may have missed it but has there been a list of participants put up yet?

    That's Awesome NZquilter. I thought about a squash. But, couldn't figure out how to make it look like a squash. It's perfect!! I will let you know when your blocks arrive.

    Just a quick question, how is everyone putting their own name on their blocks before mailing? I don't have enough pins to spare, so would a small 'post-it' note with my name work? Besides, I don't know what to think about sending 20 pins through the mail; seems to me to be asking for damage....

    I am in awe of these blocks, Armylady, NZquilter to name just the latest.
    --- Working on a 'sample block' for my 3rd set, I'm mightily discouraged.

    I worked for the better part of 3 days (I am s l o w) on this block - despite seam-ripping, measurement corrections, attempting to simplify - halfway through, me: 'aw heck no, I'm not making a set of these, I'll use this as my extra block' - and it's still a fail. Came up SHORT - 12.5" wide OK, but is only 12" in height.

    Plus I had trouble even making flying geese, despite having made them before. I really wanted to make a block that was wholly pieced as a mine tend towards applique, and I could tell from my HSTs I needed piecing practice...well I need a lot more practice. Here it is, somewhat different from the pattern, though not much...by the time I was really into it, all I wanted to do was get out of it!
