Quilt455

Love it, One of my favorite patterns and love the fabric you picked. The Queen is going to love it

AllPatchedUp

Thanks so much Quilt455 . I certainly hope she does!! :)

Quilbee

Looks awesome! I love the fabric (and have some in my stash)

AllPatchedUp

Thanks Carolmarie ! :)

AllPatchedUp

SO glad you like the block and fabric Quilbee !! The moment you said you were looking for bright autumnish colors that fabric is the one that popped into my head. I did think about an orange fabric I have in my stash for a few minutes, but the chicopee just called to me. :)

True

LOVE these fabrics!!! Cannot wait to see block it will be gorgeous!

AllPatchedUp

Glad you like it...was a tad worried the grey may be a bit too dark in value but the greens and white draw it back. I'm almost finished with the block and will be posting it soon. :)

AllPatchedUp

Finished the block last night but could not get a good photo, everytime I tried the colors were really 'off;.... so had to wait til today (and was praying all night for some sun!!! lol)

True

OK I may start hyperventilating all of these blocks are so spectacular...love it!

AllPatchedUp

ROFL True . Glad you like it :)

AllPatchedUp

Thanks Carolmarie ! :)

True

Lovely new block!

AllPatchedUp

True Thank you! :)

True

AllPatchedUp I just love that white and black fabric!!!

AllPatchedUp

Thanks True !! I love that one too! Text prints are tough to find around here so that was the first one that came to mind. Thought it was perfect to use here. :)

Juline

That's a perfect alternative for text fabric. Love all your choices :).

AllPatchedUp

@ Juline Even better! :)

True

AllPatchedUp Yeah my LQS has come along way in past year...has solids now!!! But no text so I had to get online!

AllPatchedUp

LOL True . Funny how some of us wait for our LQS's to catch up to the modern times huh. ;) Up here in the northwoods it's slowly happening....very slowly. heh I could find a few text prints, but nothing white with black. I thought about ordering online, but I know my month is going to get a bit busy so I needed to finish my blocks right away this month so no time to wait for ordering unfortunately! All worked out ok tho I think. :)

Juline

With all my choices here (Portland), it's easy for me to take it all for granted. My sympathies for your limited selection of LQSs.

AllPatchedUp

LOL thanks Juline . Enjoy and think of all us poor souls each time you step inside one of your fabulous LQSs smile

Love the colours on you April block. So calming

AllPatchedUp

Thanks Capetowngirl ! I love the fabrics and colors for this. I almost wish I'd have put the navy in the center tho and the watercolored print on the outside...because the center gets a bit lost. But I still like the way they all play together. :)
Juline gave us a great color scheme to work with!! ;)
