    I haven't mailed it yet, but will in a couple of days when I can get to the post office in the nearby town--we are camping by the lakeside at Lake Almanor in the mountains near Mt Lassen for the next week!
    I have your block already, yaya!! It is a beauty. It says "summer" to me. So bright and crisp. I ordered a new border book and I am going to let the block talk to me and browse through my book. And maybe even try some graphing. The first round is not going to take a lot of time to actually sew, so I can think as long as I need to!

    Judith1005, I received your center today - So pretty in person!
    One of the fabrics I pulled will go nicely - the other, well, not so much.
    Guess I will just have to go shopping through the 30's fabric that my LQS just got in. Don't you just feel sorry for me?

    Just for general FYI, I don't think there is any WRONG size graph paper, since you assign the size to each square that you want it to represent.

    Have fun playing with this on these blocks all, and next thing you know you will be creating your own patterns! It's so much fun!!!
    You are very welcome. I am glad you found them helpful.

    LOL, Your too funny. That's what I did today. I took my center into the Hancocks of Paducah to play with some color options. Of course, I couldn't leave all that fabric behind. I just "had" to rescue some. They begged to come home with me. Honest! :wink:

    Thank you. Have fun at you LQS. (I'm sure you'll hear the wispers too, They will beg to come home with you.)

    Glad the centers are starting to arrive. Mine had to travel pretty far but should be there soon. I will be out of town until Sunday evening, me and my husband is taking a long needed vacation for the weekend. Not sure if I will be able to check any messages or not but I will try. If not, I will check back in when I get home Sunday.

    Have fun this weekend hope everyone gets lots of sewing done!!
    Happy Quilting,
    Gena

    Judith, I picked up 2 FQ in my local shop that are a 30's print. They look like the exact blue in your center! And if they are not, more for my stash!!

    Have a wonderful week-end, Gena.

    Ooohh I just got home from finding a perfect match (color) that will go with Judith's center - and three FQs that will go with material I bought to make a quilt for my mom, and a FQ that goes with my Christmas panel, and.......yeah - I heard the whispers too.

    I had a print in my cupboard that looks fantastic with yaya's red center! And some bright batik blue, too. I left them in a pile with the center and will see what happens.

    Check out Phillips Fiber Arts - it is a free pattern from them. http://phillipsfiberart.danemcoweb.c...gree-freebies/
    It's a beautiful block and your colors are superb. Um, just wondering why you didn't applique it to a square background and save yourself the hassle of setting the corner curves?

    Wish I had though of that TrenbeathRanch! I just went with the corner pattern they supplied - which needed to be adjusted I might add.

    Can't wait to see what everyone adds to Gena's center. I will be the last one so it should be quite the masterpiece by the time it gets to me.

    Just got back from my month long vacation in our RV and received tam moo's center. It's so pretty! I'm looking forward to finding some fabrics in my collection of fabrics (aka fabric stash) to coordinate. I have an idea of the border I may add, but won't decide until I have some time to work on it. Still have laundry to finish and cleaning of the motorhome that's necessary before I can play-darn. I'd much rather dive into sewing!!

    Hi all, just coming to say hello and check in. I am going to be super busy the next week. I have a few things to finish up. Then I will be able to give my full attention to Jillnjo's beautiful center. I'm pretty sure of what I want to do so far. I have my fabric all set. I am going to do a demo of the border before I attach to make sure it's going to work out like I planned. But, I will check back later to say Hello. And show a finished project with you. It's for my grandbaby. It won't be long before he's here.
    I think they came out just darlin. I am getting so excited. Yall have a good Sunday. (I have to get back to work.)

    Very cute, Judith! Is this your first grandbaby?

    I have peaches off our trees to take care of and tomatos to harvest. This week looks very full. I cleaned up my sewing room when I completed the blocks for a wedding gift and now I'm waiting to start the next big mess! (In my kitchen and my sewing room!).

    I can only wonder what you are planning to add to my center!! I know I'll love it!

    It's such a beautiful Sunday here. Sunny, cool and not dry anymore!

    Hi, friends!! I am so busy this week, but it feels good to see all the pretty canning jars lined up on my counter. Today is my last day of freezing peaches for the year, I pray. I'm going over to my daughters to help her. Yaya, I have settled on what I want to do to your center!! My mom is coming next week and I am taking her to 2 new quilt shops in our area-can't wait to see the fabric. I hope to find the perfect fabric for the first round. We are so blessed to have rain here and it looks like spring again, my pots are starting to grow like crazy! Everyone take care and happy sewing! N.
