    It has taken me this long to finish choosing my fabrics. lol..... I am now ready to start cutting. I have also changed my mind to a different block of Rhondas, but I thought the one I chose will work better with my fabrics.

    I am using the Cynthia Block of Rhonda's Tracey. I discovered some other fabric today that I'm using in place of a couple of those colors that I posted that work nicely. Similar theme though. I've begun my sewing, and have part of my units together. On some graph paper I made some color coded unit squares to check off as I get them made. I added the name of the block to keep for future reference. It may seem silly, but it helps me to track my own progress.

    Ok, I finished my partner TwinRiverFarm's block. It will go out today in the mail. I didn't know a block could have so many little pieces, but it was so much fun. lol...

    Received a beautiful block from Grandma Di today! Thank you!! Love the colors. I will post a picture tomorrow. I forgot to go by the PO today and our little PO is closed now on Sat's so I will go on Monday. I will let you know when I do. Sorry Grandma Di for waiting until the last minute to send. I was trying out the curves and had to restart several times, but I am happy with the out come. I'll post that picture as well tomorrow.

    June 1st is my mother's birthday, so in memory of her I would like to post a few pictures. I hope you don't mind. She was older (76) and thin when she passed away, and my sweet dad is thin now. He is 80 now.

Size:  105.1 KB Mom said the first thing she sewed was a apron in home economics in school, and then she did so well that the teacher ask her to pick out a dress pattern from what the teacher had. Mom picked out a pattern in a size that mom said was very big on her, because she didn't know what size she was. Her mom was very poor, and raised 10 children by herself. Mom and dad were married almost 60 years. (The quilt block I made for my partner is made from all fabric that my mother gave me shortly before she passed away, except for the green).

    Thanks for looking.

    No problem queen of 2802 I'm really glad you like the colors. I haven't had the courage to try curves yet. I cant wait to see what you have put together.

    I hope I haven't kept anyone from posting your blocks due to my adding those pics of my mom and her quilts. I guess I was caught in the emotion of the moment. You have to over look me sometimes. lol...

    I can't wait to see everyone's.

    Here's the May block I sent to Alice. After seeing the block she sent me, I understand more about contrast. In the block I sent the 2 light blues didn't create enough contrast so the block pattern doesn't pop.

    I think it is very pretty, and I could see your block as soon as I seen it. Your colors are very pretty.

    That looks wonderful JB! You did a good job on the contrast. It is one of hte best I've seen for color coordinating. You have a good eye for keeping the colors and prints opposites. Really makes the design pop out.

    Thanks Rhonda. I was happy with how that part turned out. I enjoyed working on it, and I learned so much. I look forward to seeing more pics.
