    Candace, I am so in love with your blocks. I wasn't sure that what you were going to do would work, but boy, was I wrong! This is wonderful. Can't wait to see the whole quilt put together.

    I commented on the other thread that I like the crisp look of your green and white Kathy.

    Candace you sure have been busy - love your colours and fabric choices.

    Kathy and Candace love both your blocks. Great to see how each person makes these blocks their own. Can't wait to see all the finished quilts.

    Kathy and Candace, I love both of your blocks. So different but each is beautiful in a different way.

    My vacation was both wonderful and sad at the same time. We went to Chicago with all three of our kids Ian-20, Chloe- 18 and Liam-13 to visit with my in-laws. My mother-in-law was told last January that she has ALS. This has been so devastating to everyone. We went to Chicago in January and I could not believe how much worse she has gotten between then and now. She now has a feeding tube because she cannot swallow or speak. The worst part is that is so withdrawn she would barely interact with any of us. She is so depressed and sad. We spent half our time with my husbandís parents and half the time doing all the things that we have all been wanting to do since the last time we were in Chicago.
    We visited Bristol which is a big Renaissance fair and the kids and I dressed up in our costumes having lots of fun being dorks. We spent an entire day at the Art Institute of Chicago it is the most amazing art museum that I have ever been to my son and I were just in awe of everything. I was overwhelmed to see some of my favorite painting of all times. Including Mary Cassatt and, Renoirís and some Japanese wood block prints done in the 1920ís. We spent another day at the Field Museum visiting our favorite dinosaurs. We toped of the trip going to see the Robert McCormack military museum, Mansion and gardens. It was absolutely amazing.
    To top it off we eat so much great food and also were able to see some of my husband friends. Over all a very nice vacation I just wish my mother-in-law was not suffering so much.
    I also missed all of you. I hope next week to be back to quilting I have so much to do at home and work to get caught up from being gone.

    So sorry about your MIL. The aging process is so cruel, especially to those who are around them. I know it hurts when someone is slipping away. Glad you were able to have some fun while in Chi-town. DH earned his PhD from Illinois Institute of Technology down by Cominski Park (it's got a new name since they rebuilt it.)

    Another beautiful block, Luv. Boy, what a dilemna! I love both of your border choices. I guess you will have to see which one looks best with you center unit. A good place to be rather than no border at all. :-D :-D :-D

    Nice block fabrics and I love that border fabric also. Gives a different tone altogether.

    Glad I don't have to decide.

    DH has a great eye for matching fabrics, doesn't he? I really like what he chose. Maybe you couldmake a 2nd AOTH in christmas colors & use the other stripe for those borders!!!
