    Lesley and Elle, I've seen Lynnie make blocks like there is no tomorrow! She is a machine and will far outrun us all! She did the Chicken swap, completed a funky cat quilt, is working on a funky dog quilt and I'm hoping playing in the funky cat swap..and now this quilt. I have no idea what else she is working on...but a MACHINE I tell ya'...just a MACHINE!
    Perhaps she doesn't sleep - now that is something I do need every so often.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I used a finer silver thread than the Razzle Dazzle I think that that is to thick and I don't like to work with it. After I bought it so I found a finer thread used for cross stitch that I like better so I could do the smaller hearts. Thanks again for looking :lol:

    Ladies thank for all the nice comments but I am just learning to Applique this is my first Applique' project . I am with DH here in Atlanta Staying in a Hotel and spending my whole day just making these blocks, with no interruptions at all. I brought all my supplies with me so I could learn to make these blocks. All the blocks have been fun. With the exception of that ( Block17 :( :( which I am having a meltdown over. But I am not going to give up I am having fun :thumbup:

    Thanks Candi, but Lone Stars are beautiful quilts to make too. Look forward to seeing what you have done.

    I can't decide which I like better: the solid colors or the multi. This is the 2nd block I made for this one. The first was needle turn and looked HORRIBLE! I was so upset, that I tried one using raw edge machine stitched. I also changed the design in the middle like Patti. I like it this way--to me it looks less cluttered. Tried the little hearts in the middle twice and picked them out

    Elle....very pretty!! It will look fabulous when you do the embroidery!

    Rox...yours looks great done like that! I like it just fine without the teeny hearts.

    Looks great, Rox. I didn't do the little hearts either. Didn't think they were worth all the stress and strain.
