    That is going to be awesome when you are finished. I like the bright cheery colors. Great contrast with the neutrals.

    Yay!! They look awesome!! How many do you plan to make? What width did you decide on for your strips?

    I remember when I started making mine, I kept thinking things didn't look so good--and it was just a mess, but figured it had been worth a try. :lol: But, when they were together, I loved them!! I'm so glad others love the idea enough to try them! Happy dance! :-D

    The 3 I did are 2 inch strips but I may go smaller. I like the way yours have an explosion of color.
    Yes, they are fun and I love LC blocks!

    I have seen several over the last couple of months. when I was cleaning my stash last month I found a large number of florals and a large piece cream. I may have to start one.

    These are beautiful! What size is your center and how wide are your strips?

    The center is a floral- random prints, 2 inches, and the strips are also 2 inches.
    Thanks for all the comments, I appreciate it :D

    I've been in a bit of a slump so I started stitching and I'm having fun :thumbup:

    I got them online, I believe at an Ebay store. I got them about 2 months ago. Some are older but not many.
    Sorry I can't remember exactly where they came from!

    You can go to any online store or Ebay and type in large floral cottons, something like that.

    Very nice blocks. It will be a beautiful quilt. Do you know how you are going to set the blocks?

    Look forward to more pictures as you progress.

    Thank you! No I don't know yet but I will play around with them and probably make my sister's different from mine. She loves flowers and quilts too :)
