    Each label was around 3 1/2" each. If you cut them up, you'd lose the entire idea of the fabric.

    Couple grown up blocks will head to the east on Wednesday...one to NH and one to Japan.

    Marcialee sent in a cheery cherry colored f8 and asked for just white to be used.

    Gaijin had a dainty blue floral and also asked for just white with it. She had sent a personalized note to Dad so he was in charge of her layout. He tried out 5 - 6 designs and decided upon this one. I think he did pretty good.

    After a long time of no blocks (Took Dad to see his brother and then back to the funeral the next week, phew and I got sinus infection in between times), here is a block for Dahna42. She sent in the baseball fabric and asked for just the colors in the fabric to be used. I thought a diamond would work

    Ok... 2 of them going home on the 9th of April.

    Quiltingmommy sent a dark forest green and asked for white star shaped so it would look like a snowflake.

    Dad said this would work:

    Roseysue had a beautiful lilac flower print...Dad said it made him sneeze. I didn't want to lose the beauty of the flowers so we went with a simple D9P

    All your blocks are beautiful! Looks like lots of fun figuring out what to do with each individual fabric.

    MOM-6... you need to join up in the next Boomerang...it should start in June I think. They are a lot of fun and you get to see so much fabric you might never use otherwise.

    finally 2 more to leave the house


    AZKat sent "white" fabric and asked for the same tone of color be used in her block...ie, blue/blue, red/red so I used yellow/yellow as I didn't see that he had received any yellow as of yet. Hope she like the sunny block

    YES! YELLOW! I have all my blocks pinned to the wall and just said the other day if I don't get any yellow I was going to make some myself to even out the colors. This is great!

    Big mail out day for Monday 04/22 -- 5 blocks going home

    Alikatt110 send a country tan with little flowers. She is going to donate her quilts to the victims of the fertilizer plant explosion. I hope this block brings comfort in some small way to someone in need.

    Missgigglewings had some wonderful butterflies hiding in her fabric. To help give them flight we chose a D9P.

    OkDarla had a striped multicolor fabric and asked for just black with it. We think the black just makes the other colors pop wonderfully.

    We might get more done this weekend but it is truly a glorious day outside and Dad wants to be out there.

    Hope you like our blocks. They might not be ironed perfectly but Dad has enjoyed working on all of them so far.

    Dottie Dodge just asked to used the colors in her fabric but not navy. We went with a light hearted tan and think it worked out pretty nice.

    Babyfire had a sparky purple with dots. She didn't have any special request so we found a happy print that made us smile for her block.

    Navarre asked for the colors in her fabric to be used. The mellow yellow stripe and stony gray seemed to blend nicely with her fabric.

    I'm enjoying your journey!
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Girlscouts gave me a challenge with her hot pink with red and orange fabric. I hope she liked how this came out as we were pleasantly surprised how bright and pretty it looks to me and Dad.

    Jaydee had the little kokopelli square to use for inspiration with her teal fabric. We found a couple great embroidery patterns and think it will blend great with her other blocks.
