Description

Jan 2, 2014 -- First block for this bee. This is the "Another Star" from the Solstice Star Series. I made this block two ways - the first using the tutorial and the second using a PP pattern created by +Jodyrose (thank you Jody!!). The one shown here is using the tutorial. I actually preferred using the PP pattern but goofed it up and lost one of the points (it was totally my mistake, not Jody's in creating the pattern)

UPDATE-Woohoo! I figured out what the problem was with the PP version and it was an easy fix. I've uploaded a picture of it. I used some of the same fabrics and some different ones and a different layout so if both worked out OK I wouldn't be sending Carol two of the same block. I seriously recommend paper piecing this one as I feel like you're less likely to lose the points or have it skewed

February block - Log Cabin tree. Margaret wanted a "season" tree. I used lighter greens so I'm imagining this as a spring tree but it can be either spring or summer. I know she likes hedgehogs so I had to add them in.

April block - Quatrefoil block for Wendy in turquoise and tangerine. There's such a range of both of those colors and the variation between my two blocks show some of that range

May block - X and Plus block for Karen in warm and cool colors. I made a second block. This is take two of this block. I used a blue print on the ends of the plus and didn't like the look of it so I took it apart and used lavender instead.

June blocks - 1) Paula's Flying Geese block in fabrics to match 2wenty thr3e Collection by Eric and Julie Comstock of Cosmo Cricket. This was a great excuse to shop for grays for the background, and 2) Churn Dash block for Belinda who is making a quilt for Quilts for the South to help out the recent tornado victims. I fussy cut some ninja fabric for one and used fabric with dinosaur fossils for the second

July block - Interrupted Star for Marsha with an ecru background. I made a second one using a batik ecru as an angel block for Margaret

August block - Donut block for Terry. You will see two versions of this block posted here. The first one I captioned "It Must be Monday" but really it should be "what the hell was I doing?". I'm posting it here to provide some laughs. For some reason I don't use a lot of red in my quilts so I was happy for a chance to break one of the red fabrics that I bought this summer on the Iowa Shop Hop. It's a fun block, even when you have to extensively rearrange it :wink:

September block - Scrap jar star for Conni based on this tutorial

October block - Rocky Mountain Puzzle block for Erica. Fun block to do. As an engineer, I had to go with numbers in my background fabrics. The colors were right up my alley - purples, blues, greens. My only problem was narrowing down which fabrics I was going to use!

November block - New England Quilt block for Cathie. Low volume colors for the points and an olive for the cross. 

December - Scrappy Sprouts for Mary. Bright colors for the petals, green stems and low volume white/gray background. 

Hard to believe it's been a whole year and I can now mark the 2014 Diva blocks as "complete"

Caribousmom

Wonderful! I'm making my block this weekend :)

Sewbusy64

love these colors! and the block

True

Love this ...the fabrics rock!!

HawkFan

Caribousmom , Sewbusy64 and True - wow you guys are fast! I barely got this posted. Thanks so much for the positive feedback - hope Carolmarie likes it!

Sewbusy64

guess I did not know about this hive - it looks like fun blocks!!

Readerowl

Great fabric choices - looks wonderful. I have fabrics pulled, Maybe this weekend :)

HawkFan

thanks Readerowl - I went a slightly different route and made all of the "logs" around the center the same fabric. Hopefully that's OK with Carolmarie !

Conniharns

I love your block! Great fabrics. Carol chose great colors. You, Terry and True have made wonderful blocks. Can't wait to get started this wk end.

Quilterinmotion

HawkFan , this is fabulous! I love your fabric choices. I have my fabric sitting here; just need a few hours free to work on it. Wonderful, wonderful block!

Quilt455

This is beautiful. I love the green and how it makes this block look. doing mine on Saturday and my have to steal that idea.

HawkFan

Conniharns - Thanks Conni - I love the colors Carol chose too. That made it so easy to pull fabrics.

HawkFan

Thank you Quilterinmotion - Marsha can't wait to see what fabrics you chose. I wondered if you were going to piece it or paper-piece it since I think of you as the PP Queen

HawkFan

Carolmarie - I'm so glad you like it. I have become a PP fan too although I haven't done anything too complex yet.

HawkFan

Quilt455 - Thanks Cathie, steal away! I played with lots of options and I liked this one the best. I used a different layout with the PP one and if I decide to fix that one, I'll post pics here. That had the two purples as the "logs"

Mymble

This is gorgeous-great work!... hoping to get to mine this weekend!

Quilterinmotion

HawkFan , I think I may try the paper piece first, although I just finished another star for a Quilt-Along I'm doing and it went together so easily even with all those bias edges. Maybe I'll do both ways. PP Queen, I'm honored but I know several others here who do great PPing too. Thanks, dearie.

HawkFan

Quilterinmotion - I didn't have a problem with the piecing - I recently pieced a top that had a ton of bias edges - but on my final block, the edges weren't as clean as I would like them to be. A couple of the points are a scant quarter inch from the edge. Carol won't lose any of them but I liked the edges and points a little better on the PP one. OK, how about A PP Queen instead of The PP Queen - After seeing your PP tree ornaments, you'll always be a PP Queen in my book

True

Great second block...and you can see how it helps with saving points!

HawkFan

True Definitely better and much less stressful!

HawkFan

Carolmarie I'm so glad you like this one too. I feel much better sending this one (I'll send both) because you'll have to do less fiddling to be sure not to lose any of the points. My first one is ok but you'll have to fiddle a little with seam allowances on one side I think. And yes, I do love paper piecing. Just started a new pp project

Terryt1955

LOVE the fact that the logs are the same color. It has a big impact! Your fabric is wonderful and your points are great! These definitely are inspiring.

Terryt1955

Conniharns , Quilt455 and Caribousmom have a wonderful time tomorrow making beautiful blocks. can't wait to see what you guys come up with. If I remember right Conni you have some great polka dot batiks that would be perfect for this block!

HawkFan

Terryt1955 - I was inspired by your fabric choices and True 's. I literally had both of your project pages open while I was deciding on fabric layouts. There are so many greens and blues out there I wanted them to compliment your blocks. I also picked a couple of fabrics with a hint of yellow since your two blocks have yellow.

I'm also looking forward to this weekends products. Pressure's on now hahaha

Caribousmom

Terryt1955 ha ha ha! We'll see how successful we are!

Conniharns

Omg Terry.....those polka dot batiks are exactly what I have chosen in these great colors!! You are too funny!! Looking forward to tomorrow!

HawkFan

Conniharns Can't wait to see them!! Enjoy your warm CA weather while we burrow in to survive -60 with the wind chill (no not a typo)

True

HawkFan I hear you on temp and wind chill...and now we are going to have 40 and rain Monday?!! Come on this is a horrible winter and it still has months to go...

HawkFan

Hope your pipes survived last night!

Conniharns

Wowee..Hawkfan and True...you are sure having nasty weather. We are so toasty in CA but that's not good either. We have not had any rain. It's suppose to be 73 today.....WHAT in January! Hope you guys thaw out some....sending you some California sunshine. :)

True

HawkFan thankfully they did...did yours? I never do the keep the water running trick as we just do not get this cold...but have for last two nights. We even had frozen pipes at my office!

True

Conniharns Caribousmom Quilt455 . Have fun today... I am there you just cannot see me;-)

HawkFan

Conniharns Yes warm weather isn't always good either. We here in frozen country sometimes forget that. Have fun today - I'm so jealous!

HawkFan

True We won't hit our really cold stuff til tomorrow. We probably won't do the dripping water thing but I will turn the heat up a bit compared to what I usually set it at overnight. We got this bad in 1995 - we did the thing where you toss boiling water out and it instantly turned to snow. Pretty cool if it wasn't so freaking cold.

Caribousmom

True We're loving having you with us today, Mary!

Caribousmom

True Conni wants to know your lunch preference :)

True

Caribousmom good... Am I behaving? And perfect time I am starving!!

Caribousmom

True You are so quiet, we hardly know you are here! I'll share my Subway sandwich with you...and if you stay past 5:00pm, you can also have stew!

True

Caribousmom thank you...and I am spending the night...it is a long trip;-)

Caribousmom

True Okay - the room is waiting for you :)

Quilterinmotion

HawkFan , thank you! I hope I can live up to that title! lol
Your block is lovely. Now that I have the Pillow Pop pillows done, I can head over to the stack of Carol's fabrics. I'll let you know what I end up doing!
Here is SOUTHERN Alabama, near the Gulf of Mexico, we have had temps very low all week. 29 is almost unheard of here and we had that this week! BRRRRR!

HawkFan

Quilterinmotion This winter's weather has been really strange everywhere. Kinda disturbing.

Looking forward to seeing your block for Carol

HawkFan

Caribousmom - Hmmmm True being quiet - even though we've never met, that's not exactly how I picture Mary...(oops did I say that out loud?)

Caribousmom

HawkFan ROTFLMAO!!!

Terryt1955
True

Caribousmom HawkFan LOL I almost said same thing! Now on a large group/party I am very quiet and uncomfortable. But in a small group that problem disappears;-)

True

Oh I love your tree!!! So cute...what size block is it?

HawkFan

It ended up at 13 inches so Mymble can trim it down if she wants to

HawkFan

True oops forgot to tag you on that last comment and to say thanks.

Caribousmom

Oh your tree is wonderful...and love the little hedgehop feature :) So sweet!

HawkFan

Caribousmom thanks Wendy.. This will be such a fun quilt

Caribousmom

HawkFan I agree - I like how everyone can individualize their quilt block too

Mymble

Audrey....Love love love it- the little hedgehog is cuteness squared:) and the green fabrics are just great! Thank you so much!!!

Readerowl

Lovely greens in your tree... maybe I have to go pick my colors tonight! Cute hedgehogs!

HawkFan

Mymble I'm so glad you like it! You're going to have a wonderful quilt and I can't wait to see everyone's blocks

HawkFan

Readerowl thanks Karen. With the miserable weather I had to think spring!!

ArloDeanQuilts

Pretty tree! Love the addition of the hedgehogs, to cute!

HawkFan

ArloDeanQuilts Thanks Belinda. I was looking for something extra to add and they fit the best

Conniharns

This block is adorable! Very nice, love the colors.

Terryt1955

Just seeing this makes me want to organize my stash and get started on this block. Great selection of greens you have!

HawkFan

Conniharns thank you. This was an easy one for me to come up with fabrics for

HawkFan

Terryt1955 - yes, it's a sickness. My stash is out of control. I swore I would only buy what I needed for a few months and that lasted a few days!

Terryt1955

Okay, so getting ready to undertake organizing my stash I need ideas. What method do you use to keep things relatively under control? Right now mine is in "several" huge Rubbermaid bins that I can't even move because of the weight. I just heard at my Open Sew night about "Tiny Houses". So tempted to get one for the backyard and either set up a sewing room there or banish one of the kids to it!

HawkFan

Terryt1955 I have smaller clear bins that I organize by color if the fabric is a print. That makes it easier when I'm pulling fabric for something like this. My solids are in another bigger bin and my "textured" solids are in another one. I have a separate bin for my whites (snow, white, etc). I have some canvas "drawers" from IKEA that I use for fabrics that I've put together and am planning to use in a quilt. Then I've just got a couple of boxes I use to try to organize smaller pieces (maybe too big to call a "scrap) by color. Since I do a lot of fussy cutting, I have the novelty fabrics in a separate drawer.

True

HawkFan your commitment lasted about 48-72 hours longer than mine did;-). As fabric Friday was here when I arrived home to two packages;-)

True

Carolmarie oh some of us have done things like that...I have some lovely crystal, I never use, that was my grandmother's. It use to live in my dining room closet. It is now carefully packed away in my attics and fabric and other quilting things live nips my closet. I also found a new location for my grandmother's china! I need to organize my scraps better ...by color so thanks Audrey for ideas.

True

Nips mean in no clue how did that typo!

HawkFan

True There's just too much gorgeous fabric out there! It didn't help that this last round of my robin has a top that uses colors I have absolutely none of. That forced me to go to some LQSs and of course I picked up other stuff.

HawkFan

Carolmarie I think the small bins you use are the same ones I use. I got several at Target on sale and they do stack very nicely. I share my sewing room with DHs office. He joked that I was taking over the man cave. I have a giant reproduction of the Sports Illustrated cover of the Dream Team basketball team hanging over my cutting table. He offered to move it but I don't mind.

Skynme

This is a great tree and I love all the beautiful green fabric, but I have to say it...my favorite part is the little hedgehog. I love this block!!!

HawkFan

Skynme Thanks Erica - that's my favorite part too.

Quilt455

your greens are great. Now I just hope that northern California has some green trees come spring. A little worried with no rain this winter.

HawkFan

Quilt455 so agree. The weather has been awful everywhere. In some ways we've got it better than you do. Our cold weather won't have the longer term effects your lack of rain will have

True

Great April blocks...I loved making this one!

HawkFan

Carolmarie I don't always do two but the colors are so different and I wasn't totally thrilled with thecolor of the orange corners on the first block

True

Carolmarie I did two as I really enjoyed making the block but also wanted to see if could make those petals line up! And also just loved playing with these colors:-)

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary (& Carolmarie I forgot to say Thank you) - I'm glad to have them done. I haven't had time to sew and it's been stressing me out!

Terryt1955

Love both of your blocks! The orange one is a more muted soft one that plays beautifully against the blue. Nice contrast between the 2 and both will be beautiful additions to Wendy's quilt.

Good Morning East Coasters and Mid Westerners!

True

Carolmarie thank you...so kind! But it was a new angle for me!!

True

Carolmarie Should have added nesting seams is all about practice...and still sometimes I nail it and sometimes it is just a dream I swear;-)

Caribousmom

audrey - I LOVE them both!!! You're right that there is color variation - but I think that is going to make this quilt more interesting. You used gorgeous fabrics!!! Thank you SO much!

Terryt1955

Carolmarie It's still too early to tell because the morning fog hasn't burned off but it feels like it's going to be a beautiful spring day. How I love Saturday mornings!

HawkFan

Thank you Terryt1955 - the funny thing is before I made the blocks, I thought both would be bright but when I started playing with combinations, these were the best combos I came up with. Kind of surprised myself

HawkFan

Caribousmom - Wendy I'm glad you like them - the pictures aren't very good. They'll go out on Monday (I'll post confirmation that they went out on the thread once they've definitely been mailed)

Quilterinmotion

Love your blocks, HawkFan . Wendy's going to have an incredible quilt with these colors.

HawkFan

Quilterinmotion Thank you Marsha - yes I'm envious of her quilt-to-be

True

Awesome May block!!! Love it...

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary! And it only took about a dozen tries to get it posted here - TB is definitely acting up!

True

HawkFan I know!!! Really frustrating I just sent a pm to Alex, Rebecca and Amanda hope they do something soon!

Caribousmom

Fabulous color and fabric choices for Karen's block, Audrey!!!

Skynme

Gorgeous color combos in the x&+, really pretty fabrics together.

Mymble

Love your block - super colors ...and yes, weirdness here on TB today..posting has been a bear:(

Readerowl

I came back from a half day of errands, and two new May blocks had appeared -- and it isn't even May yet! Love this one so much. Ditto the awesome, fabulous, gorgeous, and super comments above. this is a fantastic group.

HawkFan

Skynme Caribousmom Thank you - I went through so many color combinations but I'm happy with this one!

HawkFan

Mymble Thanks Margaret. I see the problem is now fixed but I was afraid I was going to have multiple posts or not get it posted at all.

HawkFan

Readerowl Karen I'm glad you like it. I wanted to stay away from blue and go a different route but I just kept coming back to it.

Terryt1955

Glad you came back to the blues because it really is pretty!

I got on here early this morning and could see TB was acting weird. Thought I just didn't have enough caffine. Glad True sent a pm to Alex since I had to fly out the door!

Seeneed

Love the May block. The colors are awesome.

HawkFan

Terryt1955 Thanks Terry. I was trying to do something different but my stash wasn't cooperating - imagine that - my extensive stash failing me. Guess I'll have to shop some more laughing

HawkFan

Thank you Seeneed - I took inspiration from the April block

Caribousmom

Ooooh, love that lavender...fantastic!

Readerowl

Oh! pretty! Love the take 2 block also. Luscious purples and lavender, and love the dotty background too.

True

Oh the purple and yellow is awesome!!!

Terryt1955

Well you KNOW I love the purple version!!

HawkFan

Terryt1955 I was thinking about you when I was making that one, Terry!

HawkFan

Readerowl Karen I remembered you commenting a couple of times that you liked dots.

HawkFan

True Caribousmom Thanks for the positive feedback. I'm so glad I gave the block a second chance because version 1 was pretty bad. It's amazing what changing that one fabric did for the block.

Quilt455

Love the purple and yellow together.And dots make everything more fun. I really like this one.

HawkFan

Carolmarie Quilt455 Thanks Cathie & Carol - it took a while to put the fabrics together but I'm happy with the end result

ArloDeanQuilts

Very pretty block, love your purples. I really need to add more purple to my stash.

HawkFan

ArloDeanQuilts Thanks Belinda. Most of my purples are from the quilt I made my goddaughter. I like purple but I'm not sure I'd have much of it in my stash otherwise

True

Oh I love your June blocks. That red is amazing and the grays and others for Paula's!! You did good both shopping and sewing;-)

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary. Scrappy is always hard for me so putting together Paula's block took some time as I auditioned fabric and fabric positions for a long time. Two of the triangles look almost black but that's a lighting flaw

HawkFan

Carolmarie thanks Carol. I'm partial to those ninjas

Caribousmom

Love your June blocks, Audrey! Perfect color placement on Paula's and the churn dashes are great too!

HawkFan

Caribousmom Thanks Wendy - I hope Paula likes her block. It was fun to push myself with a scrappy block.

Caribousmom

Love the July block, Audrey! You're on a roll!

HawkFan

Caribousmom Just channeling you Ms Turbo ;)

True

Wow you are back in the saddle for sure...love July's block...that is awesome fabric in middle.

Caribousmom

HawkFan Hahahha!

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary. I actually started with the middle fabric and then picked others to go with it

True

HawkFan That is how I did mine as well:-). Well it worked!

HawkFan

True Your center was a great tie in to the others

True

HawkFan thanks I love that fabric I used for middle.

Terryt1955

Thank you both True and HawkFan for making me see how to select the fabric.Duh, build around the center pinwheel. So obvious but not to me!! Love both your blocks Audrey. That batik background is yummy!

HawkFan

Terryt1955 my mind didn't immediately go there either. I was just digging through scraps trying to get an idea and I saw the black fabric I used for the first block. Then it dawned on me that would be the easiest way for me to come up with the 4 outside colors. Thanks Terry - hope Marsha likes the batik!

ArloDeanQuilts

Love both of the blocks, especially the one with the circled background, looks kinda like snails!

Skynme

love both of your blocks, really great fabric choices for both.

HawkFan

ArloDeanQuilts Thanks Belinda - the snails one will fit right in with Marsha's snail blocks!

HawkFan

Skynme Thanks Erica. I thought I'd struggle with picking fabrics but my stash came through

True

Love your second block, thank you for being an angel!;-)

Caribousmom

Awesome second block, Audrey!!

Quilterinmotion

HawkFan , I do love the second block. Thank you for being an angel for Margaret. I know she appreciates that and I love your choices. Using a multi-colored center to pick the rest of the colors from does make a great deal of sense. I never though of that but it's perfect. You are a great help to those who haven't started yet.

Mymble

Thanks so much Audrey it is gorgeous-the center is especially great! I'm so glad Marsha loves it too!

HawkFan

Caribousmom True Thanks ladies!

HawkFan

Quilterinmotion Marsha I'm glad you like it. No pressure trying to live up to Mymble 's creativity or anything ;-p Everyone's done such a beautiful job on your blocks

HawkFan

Mymble I'm glad you like it. I was trying to channel you but it doesn't have your creativity. I'm glad Marsha likes it though.

Quilterinmotion

HawkFan , you have nothing to worry about. You are creative and have a great color sense. I do love both the blocks you made and that ecru batik is so nice! I'll have to look for some of that as I do like it very much. Thanks again for being such an angel.

HawkFan

Quilterinmotion my pleasure. My state was having an all state shop hop and I had fun visiting about half of the shops. I picked up both of the background fabrics I used at one of the shops. It's a fairly local shop and they have an amazing selection of batiks

Quilterinmotion

HawkFan , how lucky for you. I visited two quilt shops this past week which is really a lot for me. Of course I had to go out of state to get to one of them! I will be looking for the ecru batik as it is a nice "low volume" fabric to have on hand. Glad you enjoyed the all state shop hop.

Are your local shops participating in the RowbyRowExperience that starts July 1? One of the shops about 40 min. from me is participating as well as others further off. It looks like it might be fun to collect the row patterns.

HawkFan

Quilterinmotion no they've all got their own smaller shop hops with patterns they'll do this next month. There were 94 shops on the hop and they're spread out all over the state. I heard that 3 sisters who did the whole thing estimated the drove about 4000 miles! The husband of one shop owner said he did a calculation that if you took the shortest route it was about 1500 miles. I use it as an excuse to explore parts of the state that I've never been to or little towns I haven't visited but I only go to places I can get to and back in a day.

HawkFan

Carolmarie Thanks Carol!

Mymble

HawkFan Nonsense Audrey- its marvelous...love everything about it and Marsha is going to have an amazing set of blocks!...looking forward to seeing the finished quilt!

Quilt455

I love the background fabric. Just a great block.

HawkFan

Quilt455 Mymble Thanks ladies!

Conniharns

Love your fabrics. So colorful! You did a great job.

HawkFan

Conniharns Thanks Conni!

HawkFan

Thanks Carolmarie - yesterday was not a good sewing day for me but eventually all of my Monday projects came out OK

True

I love the fabric! And you win the contest for the most creative interpretation of the block;-)

Readerowl

Wonderful red fabric for August. Lol I have a photo of mine when it had antlers.. They are very popular, but I fixed it.

HawkFan

LOL True and Mary you win the spin doctor award wink

HawkFan

Carolmarie Sure, Carol if "designing" means randomly rearranging the components of a block hahaha

HawkFan

Readerowl Karen maybe we should all get together and design a new quilt for Terry made of goofy blocks smile

Conniharns

HawkFan Love your block! But I so had to laugh because I put mine on upside down and had to fix!! It seems the easier the block I am more liable to goof up!! I do better with more difficult, head scratching blocks!! Never have to rip those!

Cseawright

Love it

Caribousmom

Love your August block, Audrey!!! I flipped mine too and had to rip! Sounds like we all have done that...WTH!?!? LOL.

HawkFan

Thanks Cseawright

HawkFan

Caribousmom Conniharns There does seem to be a trend here...glad to hear I wasn't the only one

Conniharns

HawkFan oh Hawk!!! Love love my block! These brights are so pretty. It's perfect!! Thank you so much.

True

Great block for Conni!!

Caribousmom

Stunning September block, Audrey!!! Love it!

HawkFan

Conniharns So glad you like it Conni. I wasn't sure if some of them were bright enough.

HawkFan

Caribousmom True - thanks Ladies. A fun block to do and it'll be a beautiful quilt

HawkFan

Carolmarie Thanks Carol. She is getting some beautiful blocks. Yes, Mary and I met up. No pictures though. We were so busy talking we never took any.

Readerowl

I'm glad you made the rock mountain puzzle in green - I've been on the lookout in my stash for a good green for a second block. Your swirly one is perfect!

Readerowl

and the blue is wonderful too - love the narrow frame on that one.

Skynme

Thank you again!!! Both blocks are fantastic!!! Love the swirly fabrics and the polka dots. Thank you so much, they are lovely!!!

HawkFan

Readerowl Thanks Karen! I love the swirly fabric and have it in several colors. Trying to emphasize the northern lights theme.

HawkFan

Skynme So glad you like them Erica!

True

Perfect blocks...the numbers are excellent and the swirls just so northern lights like...wow!!!!

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary curly_loop cyclone dizzy loop my extensive stash comes in handy sometimes wink

Mymble

Love your October blocks- lots of movement going on there and the colors are great!

HawkFan

Mymble Thanks Margaret - it was nice to see your block and everyone else's to take inspiration from them

ArloDeanQuilts

Beautiful blocks as always Audrey!

HawkFan

Thanks ArloDeanQuilts Carolmarie - you ladies are so sweet!

Caribousmom

Gorgeous, Audrey Good color choices :)

HawkFan

Caribousmom Thanks Wendy. These colors are definitely in my wheelhouse

Conniharns

HawkFan just love your blocks! The colors are beautiful. Very nice.

HawkFan

Conniharns Thanks Conni - I pulled out some of my favorite fabrics for them

True

Really gorgeous fabric choices for the November block!!

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary - this one was easy to pick fabrics for which kind of surprised me. Muted colors aren't my personality but I had quite a bit, surprisingly enough LOL

Skynme

Gorgeous block!!! love those fabrics!!

Terryt1955

Well for not gravitating towards muted colors you sure do have some great ones in your stash. And that green is spot on for the olive Cathie was requesting. Great job!

HawkFan

Skynme Thanks Erica. Three of them were from a Jubilee charm pack I had.

HawkFan

Terryt1955 Thanks Terry. It was so helpful to have the Kona color list Cathie gave us. I could compare fabrics to the ones she listed and I felt I was on the right track.

Mymble

Gorgeous color choices for the November block! Nice job!

HawkFan

Mymble Thanks Margaret

ArloDeanQuilts

More Cheery blocks for Dec., Just love everyone's blocks!

True

Thank you these are so perfect for my quilt...love them!

Skynme

You already know from IG, but LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

Skynme

ArloDeanQuilts OMG my daughter has the same little fox as her screen saver...I know totally off subject, but so crazy.

HawkFan

True Glad you like them - they're on their way to you today!

HawkFan

Skynme Thanks Erica!

Terryt1955

Mmmm Good! Love your stash and low volumes in grays! True , you surely picked a great block!

HawkFan

Terryt1955 Thanks Terry. I went on a gray buying spree last summer and was happy for the chance to use some of it

ArloDeanQuilts

Skynme So funny, I thought he was so cute.
