    new floral blocks--not log cabins :-)

    These patterns are from the Back to Nature pattern. I tweaked one a bit. I'm making the Back to Nature with Moda fabrics--I've posted some of the blocks. I kept wondering what the blocks would looks like with florals. Then I had to think through how many greens to use--and where the florals should be. EQ7 helped out there.

    I made three of each--they are 20.25" now. I find this sized table topper sells the best. I like the pattern of the dark florals better, but like the yellow fabric best.

    It's been slow going because a week ago I rolled under the electric fence to check a back pasture (I've done this 100s of times) and I heard something pop. After a few days of intense pain, I headed to the docs. She calls it Costrachrondritis--I think that's spelled right. Anyway, among many other painful moves, especially chores--I couldn't use my left hand to press the ruler down to rotary cut. Sigh. Every day is better though.

    Now back to Back to Nature and Surprise (the baby quilt that was posted here)!

    When I saw "not log cabins" I knew it would be you, BarnBum .... to tell you the truth I was thinking of you the other day and wanting a floral log cabin fix!!! (perhaps because spring is in the air?)

    OUCH ... OUCH ... OUCH to you and your discomfort!!!

    lol--I miss working on them! The Back to Nature and horse quilt sidetracked me--and there are so many other pretty patterns in the world to try! My floral strips are collecting dust. ;-) But--I'll get some going in a bit. I have 20 items on consignment at a local folklore-stuff store and some have sold! I'm excited to have a great place to put them.

    The pain from this thing is right up there with labor. My husband said it's the first time he's ever seen me cry from pain--and this is the second issue in two weeks. One of the horses slammed into my thigh with her head over two weeks ago--and that was very painful too. Dang. At least the doc said this is not an old lady issue--young people get it too. Whew. lol

    You put fabric together so gorgeously!!!! And your piecing is flawless! A floral log cabin is on my list to try after seeing your beauties. We are so glad you share! :-) Hope you will feel OK soon!

    Those are so pretty! I especially love the ones with the touch of red. The darker fabric really makes the center pop! Can't wait to see the finished product. Feel better soon!

    Very pretty table toppers. I like that size for a topper too. Some larger ones take up too much table space.

    OUCH! some more!!! ... can't speak for horses butting ... can totally relate, having had a cow go at me much the same when on the wash rack at a show!!

    So "milk" it for all you can and declare that you need LOTS Of R+R time aka quilting before you can be back doing everything!!! I'll hope I don't miss your threads when the floral log cabins return .... not that I don't like these ones!! They speak of Spring and Easter, oh so nicely!

    Beautiful. I love the pattern. I guess I'll have to bookmark it and hope to make it some day. I have so many, I'll never get around to half of them.

    These all are so beautiful it's hard to find a favorite. I'm glad you're on the mend tho. This is the time to do those little reflection thingy and create something entirely out of your realm. Congrats on the sells. Even in hard times people still need to buy something special for themselves to have something real to hang onto.

    Oh good! I didn't think they'd be seen with the photos resized so small. Yay!

    For the first time since 2001--Mark had to help with chores--only in the evening though-and only for three days. He cleaned pastures and filled stall buckets. I had to get up at 4 AM to take meds to get through morning chores. BUT--it's been tremendously better today. I even tossed some hay bales and took horses for long walks. Yay!!

    Blocks are gorgeous. So too are the minis. My doctor, the son of a vet, has minis and llamas as well as some sheep. His wife sells hand dyed yarn fom the llamas and sheep. If anyone is interested let me know and I'll send the URL of her website. It is most definately not cheap.

    Ouch!! I hope you are feeling better soon. Yes, we get hurt many times with animals. spent over half my life taking care of cattle and my Dr finally said no more or you will be in a wheelchair. And then what do you do? Can't work or anything else then. I decided to go out to work outside the home and have been doing that now for over 10 years.

    So sorry you got hurt, I am glad you are getting better. I have never taken care of anything but dogs, cats and a bird. Beautiful blocks I like the last two the best, love the colors. Great job.
