    Your blocks are great!! Good colors. I am about ready to start on mine and you are inspiring me to get busy!! I really like the URR Code block that you made-Can you give me some details of how you did it? Are you going to use it as a block on the front of the quilt or for the label on the back?

    I LOVE your blocks! the colours are fabulous!!!

    hmmm I would like to do one of those URR. It doesn't have much meaning history wise for where I live here in Newfoundland, but I still like it and the history behind the blocks and their codes. Very very interesting! I guess I will have to add that project to my already huge list of quilts to make :)

    Shadow are you using a certain designer for your fabric? Love all the blocks. I got the Eleanor Burns book too - did you print off the story of the URR on fabric?

    Shadow, your work is outstanding as usual, the colours compliment each other perfectly. It's fascinating reading the history of each block :D
