    Cordelia - the Bambury Cross pattern is 2 colors - light & dark. When you say black background, is the background the light color or the dark color in the pattern or maybe just the 4 corners? It would make quite a difference & i want you to like it!

    Good question annmarie. Also, Cordelia, do you want it a 15 in block, or 12 1/2?

    Yes, Bebe, but the question is what part of the block does Cordelia see as the background? We don't want to put the black in the wrong place.

    Nice job ccbear66! I've got that one on my cutting mat waiting for my attentions. I would have sat down to do it this afternoon, but dd needed to get outside and play in the sprinkler, and then we had a whole bug wasp identification thing going on. Life never stops and certainly not for a mom! :D Did I mention I love the mom part?

    Oh barb, your work is beautiful! I love the recent block pic additions. I'm not sure I'll be able to wait until the end of this swap to want all my blocks!

    Hi, everyone. I'm sorry my block was unclear. I like the Bambury Cross so much and the block at Marcia Hohn's site (blocks galore) is 15". That's the size I would like.

    In the rules, I thought it had to be 12 inches, so I thought it would have to be sized down. But, since it can be the size it is on the site, I'd like the 15" size.

    I'm posting a quick picture of my two colors: I guess now that I look at the design, it's hard to know what's the background. So, I sketched one up.

    The orange doesn't have to be exact, I'm not picky about the color. That's just my idea of firey orange or yellow/orange.

    OOHH! That quilt is going to be awsome! I was nervous about down sizing your block. Makes me feel better doing it at the 15" size.

    15" it will be. Still need to find the right yellow/orange for you though.

    DDrobbin's your Goosecreek is done. I hope you like it!


    The triangles around the light diamond are blue, and the other square that looks really dark with little flowers is forest green.

    LADIES,
    I prefer to have all three colors in my block red white and black you can choose either a white or black for background.
