Oooohhh, I love that combo. The purple is gorgeous!

i like both of the posted colorways, one is nice and calm (i love that red fabric)and the other is a bright. fabriclovr i am almost sure i saw you post some black fabric with bright colored ribbons. was i seeing things?
Na, your not seeing things. After I posted the colorway, I looked at it on the screen and did not like what I saw. I pulled a couple of different fabrics and posted that picture and took down the other one with the black ribbons.

Here are my 1st installment blocks. Remember to look at the pictures closely so you get the correct fabric in the right place. In diagram III is shows fabric B on the bottom. I am almost sure that if you place it in the oppisite postition, your quilt will not turn out as they describe. If you are confused at this, look at the 1st colorway shown and then compare it to the directions. They put Fabric B (the one that we need 3+ yards for) at the top and bottom of the 1st block and on the bottom of the second block. I am glad that I caught that before I sewed them together as we are working 100% with bias blocks.

They took me just about an hour to sew, press and trim off the dog ears. Cant wait for the 2nd step

Oh Fabriclovr, I am so glad you noticed and mentioned this - as I am sure I would have sewn mine together wrong. A big Thank you!
