Love your blocks, B'stone! That spinning star is awesome.

Well, I am beck in Memphis looking for a house again. I found the cutest little 50's bungalow with just the right amount of renovation. Love it and I'm going to give a bid on it. Fingers crossed, as this will be the third house on the street that I have bid on and I lost out on the other two. Both bathrooms have their original tile, and one has yellow and blue tile and a blue art deco style sink! It's amazing. It also has a huge attic the full length of the house, with a full staircase behind a door to get up to it. No "pull down" stairs! The kitchen is in a little nook, as opposed to the long walk-through kitchens that most houses have now. And it has an extra bedroom to use for sewing, with two windows of natural light. I hope I am able to buy it!

SBG, Good luck with the bidding! It sounds charming, a perfect Granny home. :)

SBQ, The house sounds so cute. I used to live in a house like that in St. Louis.
Bibliostone, love the blocks.
I have been busy at my so-called part time job, but managed to make one block and have one more left.

Wow, amazing block AHWU. Well done!

Sewbiz hope your bid wins, sounds like a real winner.

Anwu very fun block

Ahwu, I love that Christmas block. Ooh, I get really annoyed with autocorrect sometimes. It tried to insist that Ahru should be either Andy or anti!

Sewbiz, I hope your bid is accepted. The house sounds like something I would love also.
Janice, it looks like you have a little more time before moving. I went through moving long distance 3 years ago. It's not fun!
I love all the blocks that have been posted so far.
Here are 4 more of mine. They are for AHWU, JayneW, Juliasb and Stcpawz.

Yea, I will get the last 6 blocks done next week. Past 2 weeks I have been busy at our local county fair (i am textiles coordinator)
Good luck on house buying and moving to all.

The realtor told us today that the housing market has slowed down. Some houses aren’t even getting viewed. So now is a better time to find a house, but who knows what will happen down the road.

I love seeing all the blocks coming in! Keep creating!

Hello from SugarCreek Ohio - loving the blocks I see and surely missing being part of this. Have been visiting the multitude of quilt shops and picking up a few things. After a visit to Zincks' I placed a huge order to be shipped to AZ with every color of the ombre fabrics (24 of them!). Figured that should cover any color you;ll might want on the next boom
Janice - where oh where are you moving? And so glad to see your family is all together in helping you. How many life-changing events have we all been part of?
SBJ - a full attic - oh I recall those - along with a full basement. And I had them all full! prayers that this house is THE one.
