    I posted the first pictures of these blocks exactly a month ago( January 15 th and today is February 15th!)... AND now it's done!!!!!

    Here's all 35 blocks of the sampler quilt. I am going to use solid navy blue for sashing and borders. I am SO happy to be finished this.

    After much deliberation I think we'll be using the finished quilt in our motor home for the bed cover. I really can't see using it anywhere in the house... it just doesn't fit in here!

    What bright "spots" in a snow day. Love them! I have the flowered fabric but have never used it --it looks great.

    Under each picture I put what I think the names are. I got some of these blocks from Quilter's Cache.

    I think they are WONDERFUL! Ya know what they remind me of, those really neat flags they use in boating. They made me think of a warm summers day, kicked back on a boat, on clear, clean blue water. Sipping lemonade and enjoying watching hubby and the girls fish off the side. Thanks for creating such warm thoughts!!! Keep up the great work, I can't wait to see how they progress from here!

    If you can find out the names, just go to google and type in the name and up will come the instructions... type in quilters cache and there will be photos of blocks, you might be lucky....

    That's EXACTLY what I was thinking!!! I am a fan of muted shades and fall colours... so I guess this is my walk on the WILD side!

    Goose Creek, Basketweave, Fourth of July, Arkansas Crossroads and Austin...

    I checked my binder and they are all from Quilter's Cache. They are all 12" blocks.

    So motivated by all your good wishes... I have finished several more blocks and hope to do more this weekend!

    Still hoping that sleeping under this wild quilt won't cause nightmares!

    These are wonderful blocks. The colors are just fabulous. They are
    inspiring to me and motivate me to get going on my project :). :!:

    I'm in Ohio, the temperature outside right now is 0 degrees. Looking at
    your quilt blocks warms me up :wink: .
