Great block - reminds me a little of a Bear claw block
The received blocks are just so gorgeous. Everyone was worried about their background colors but they are just what I wanted!!! Perfect!!! Looking forward to seeing more blocks as the month goes on. Thanks to Wendy, Belinda and an extra thanks to Audrey for doing two to angel for Margaret. Being Queen for a month is awesome; like a birthday every week!
These look great! And you will have one more tonight as I will hand deliver mine when we meet:-)
True , the block you made is awesome and receiving it from you in person was such a great time. Everyone's is wonderful so far, but I have to say I've been surprised to see so many people use the almost the same colors. I did really expect a wide range of colors --- which is NOT to say I'm not happy, I truly am. ANY color is fine in the blocks, gals; you are not restricted to those colors I chose. I didn't reallymost of you would take my sample as the only colors you could use. I'm hoping I don't sound ungrateful. I love my block and they will look so fabulous in a quilt.
True , so glad we agree on that. Hopefully we'll get to do it another time, maybe in Portland next time.
Quilterinmotion Marsha I honestly didn't go based off of your sample. I picked a center fabric and went with what I had that looked good with those. My two have a lot of similarities since I have lots of similar fabrics in my stash.
Carolmarie , I agree! It would be great if we could all meet someday....that's a lot of miles to rack up! HawkFan , it's not a problem just stating that when I looked at those first four I was amazed at the similarities. I love the colors in them!! In fact I told Mary I might change my mind and do a whole quilt with just that block and make up more of them myself. I love them that much!
I'm glad you liked them, I'm so sorry I forgot to sign them. I didn't realize it until they were in the mail. Can't wait to see your lovely quilt
Skynme I forgot about signing too. That's why I've learned to tell my students multiple times what they need to do because that's what I need so I assume they do too. You'd think as an engineer I'd be better at following directions!
For the record I did not have any recall of even reading that I was suppose to sign my name...so not only can I not follow instructions I clearly cannot read either!!
Include me too on the not seeing about the signing part. This is scary on my part!
On a good note, I am bringing my 4 quadrants to Open Sew tonight so there's no excuse that I won't get it put together!
You all got me wondering if I just thought about asking you to sign but I went back to the Group page for July and looked. Yes, I did ask everyone to sign their blocks but I didn't emphasize with bold or italics and it just blended in with everything else. Don't worry about it!
Eagerly awaiting the arrangement as a top!
One still to come, Clairealex , and then hopefully it will work its way up my list of goals to finish.
I know what you mean about list of ...
Love your new block from Terry! Cannot wait to see what you do with all of them:-)
Thank you True and Carolmarie . I can't wait to use them but I really do have to get a few things off my plate first. I'm trying to restrain myself from playing with them on the design wall because then I'll want to sew them together....then I'll want to quilt them.....kind of the "If You Give A Mouse a Cookie" story I used to read to little ones when I taught and to my own children.
This is an amazing quilt!!! Love it...wow!!
And love name as well...
Wow - you are a genius to arrange the blocks like this. I love it.
This top is stunning! Great designing!
Marsha this looks AMAZING! I love the two blocks together...gorgeous!
True , thank you! Readerowl , I really couldn't figure out any other way to arrange them and I did like the looks of this arrangement. Thank you! Firetones , thank you so much.
Caribousmom , I appreciate your comments --everyone's. I was taking a chance on this because I couldn't realize visualize them together prior to having them in my hand but so happy it worked out! Thank you!
They look wonderful together. What an amazing and unique quilt!
HawkFan and Carolmarie , thank you both for confirming these two were the right combination! It will be a unique quilt thanks to all you lovely ladies who sent me a block in July! I have four more of them (two of my own) that I'm going to piece onto the backing so if anyone didn't see there's in the quilt top, it will be on the back. I had too many to put them all on the front.
Quilterinmotion Wowee...I love your quilt. The colors are great and the design of the two different blocks is eye popping!! Very pretty!
Conniharns , thank you! I wasn't sure they'd look great together when I thought of the idea back before I was choosing my July block but luckily they came together great. You're so kind.
Quilterinmotion Oh My! I love how this looks. I never would have put these two blocks together but they are great!!!!
Quilt455 , I was hoping they'd look good together and apparently I was right---all your great comments, dear TB gals, make me believe I was right in picking these two designs. Thanks so much.
These look so wonderful together! What a great way to combine all your quilty friends blocks. This turned out lovely and will make a great memory quilt
Thank you, ArloDeanQuilts . I am so happy with how it came together. I felt like I was taking a big risk when I thought of putting the two blocks together but I do like how they look together.
