    I just had to smile when reading your note, My aunt used the "egads" word, and I haven't heard it since her passing away.
    Love this block, and am looking forward to seeing your DJ posted

    A great start - I like the middle one but all are interesting and will be awaiting a finished quilt.

    Stunning and awesome. No way I can even contemplate trying that one.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    You are a quick learner. Your color choices are delicious too.

    HOLY COW! The prices on their website for pre-made quilts made me gasp! Sure glad I was sitting down. LOL
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    Did you see the last one in her gallery? Dancing on Dreams: 68k Her quilts are definitely art from start to finish. I buy my art a TJMaxx :>) But it is lovely to see the real Mccoy.

    Looks like you have already proved that you CAN!

    It will be stunning!

    Pretty snazzy, huh? I just hope I can make mine look half as good as hers.

    I started out making two prototypes. The green one was first. Too small! SO I increased the size of the block. Much better! I learned that prints don't really work with this pattern when I made prototype number two!
    The third picture are the first two blocks I've made so far for Shawn's "TGIQ" (The Great Illusion Quilt). I think I'm going to have to make a dozen of these. Egads! What did that grandson of mine get me into?
    Okay! Now to see if I can attach some photos. I've not posted any pics for awhile. Wish me luck!
    I really like it with the batiks!

    Caryl Fallert doesn't just sit down and sew strips together for her 10k+ quilts.

    This woman is the consummate artist in all steps of her processes. She dyes her own fabrics. She designs her own quilts in a sophisticated design program on the computer (has for YEARS!). She often works on the floor (that alone is impressive to me, mobility limited as I am), using projection equipment, paint, thread work, applique, as well as intricate piecing.

    She has taught and published for decades, impacting the quilting world mightily, and is highly respected nationally and internationally. Her list of awards is so extensive! Many corporations have bought and displayed her art in their facilities.

    She 'lately' lost her husband, changed her life in order to move to Paducah, and has become a major representative of the city and the AQS show there every year. Ask an established appraiser about the details they look for when appraising a 'fabulous' quilt and you'll find that Caryl has them all!

    (Can you tell I adore her?!)
    The quilts you've made do her proud, they're wonderful!

    Beautiful! And (IMO) I think the print variation is different yet just as striking as the variations in solids. Again, beautiful! Thank you.

    Well, if nothing else, it'll be worth $10,000. That's what Carol Bryer Fallert's is priced at! Your grandson has great taste! Love the look, but it's far beyond my abilities. Please show us your finished project. Thanks for sharing.

    The good news is - you're the pilot!
