    Absolutely beautiful! Our little group in Long Beach received one of your scrappy quilts and I will tell you that the recipient was thrilled. Thank you for being so kind and generous.

    I really like the scrappy look with all the colours I'm sure they will be greatly appreciated.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    These look wonderful! I've made a few D4P blocks just to try out the pattern. A whole quilt of them looks awesome. Another one to add to my "to do" list! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Thanks for donating to victims of Sandy. I was in the eye of the storm (best place to be) and suffered no damage. Less than 5 miles away people were totally wiped out. It's hard to imagine losing everyting - a hand made quilt is something to treasure.

    Love the quilts and you did a great job on them.
    You have GREEN grass outside to put your quilts on--I remember green grass--not right now in the Thumb of Michigan.

    Thank you farmquilter! I just have to show you this one pic taken earlier where there's green grass, fall leaves and snow I had to work around! It was just enough space to lay an old quilt down with the top over it! lol!

    You are so right! Sometimes we don't see our errors until pic time! Not only is that block not right but the dark green one in the far left-hand corner did the very same thing! And the 3rd block done that way is exactly 4 rows up! lol. The quilters rotated their skinny strips correctly but inadvertantly moved their 4P in the center! That 4P should always be in opposite position of the strips! Most of us missed those mistakes!! Thanks for pointing them out!!

    BrendaK, that block was a beautiful red/yellow sunflower fabric that you like!

    If you notice in that same quilt the darkest block there is a purple with purple and there was NO contrast in that block so I sent her duplicate block back (since one of those was all you needed) as well as some other blocks I didn't use. You absolutely need 'contrasting' fabrics in this quilt.

    Here's a tip: When trimming your blocks for this quilt, lay them in one of three piles of dark, med. or light. That way you don't have to sort them after trimming; they'll be already done! Then when you go to lay them out, start by picking up the dark pile first and lay them in an alternating fashion. Next take the med. blocks and lay them in the empty spaces next to the darks. For the palest blocks last, work them into your quilt next to the darkest block wherever you can so they show up well! Sometimes it's nice to have a few out of order to give it a random look. Hope this tip helps you in laying out your blocks!

    Also, since only 4 of the 6 blocks in the row are seen on top of the bed and the other 2 are on the sides, I like to focus my best blocks there.

    Your welcome everyone~! Don't forget -- DO NOT MOVE THE LITTLE 4P IN THE CENTER WHEN YOU MOVE THE SKINNY STRIPS IF YOU MAKE THIS QUILT!

    Also, I found a few pics for you so you can see how that deep purple block mixed with another purple shows little contrast. Also, the lily pad dark green fab is so interesting in the 2nd pic. I just loved all the fabs in these quilts! Hope yours turns out just as great!
