MaxNTopeka:

Okay...I finished my Feb BOM. They aren't pretty, but they are done. And I think they are about as good as I can get HST!  I keep trying to like the chunky chevron, but it just seems dense, heavy, something...as a whole quilt it would be fine. (Not for me cause it would require me to do a lot of HSTs!) but as just a single block it seems overpowering. IMHO.  Do not adjust your color--they are black and white.

Oooh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these!  I am a huge color fan but these look so bold and elegant.  Great job!

And I agree about the chevron block... could be nice as an all-over quilt, but I felt it to be too overpowering for my quilt, so I did the diamond one she showed as an example instead.  I think you were actually able to pull it off with this color combo, though.

I agree that Max's blocks are elegant.  I get the feel of tuxedos and formal gowns at the black and white ball.

Max, I think they are pretty. I like two color quilts and this is going to be stunning.

Great blocks everyone...and I am loving the colors!  Here are my February blocks.  I too am not so wild about the chunky chevron, so when my additional floral fabric is received I think I will do a HST diamond block as Claudette did (great idea, Claudette).  It may be a good back-up, just in case...

What is going on with my camera!  First the date stamp was one day behind, and now it's one day in the future.  I have enough trouble keep up with today, let alone trying to keep up with tomorrow...LOL!

Thanks Spud,  it turned out the floral fabric was a Donna Dewberry design for Free Spirit...go figure!  But I loved the colors, and it was pretty easy to find coordinating fabrics.  Surprisingly, I could only find one on-line QS that still had this fabric!

 great choice of fabrics Donna.  I like the focus fabric and how you have solids to match, with a great background fabric to show it all off.

Thank all of you for your kind comments on my BOM blocks. Ya'll are most generous with your encouragement!  I do think before it is all done I will probably pull the Clunky Chevron out of the mix...but I'll wait until I see what else comes in following months. Maybe something else will balance it out. If not, I'll probably 'steal' the diamond idea. I like it much better.

Sukochi--I just pinned the black strips around the blocks to test how it would look for a border. I think I will go with it in the final layout.  And my design board has a light colored cover. The camera kept trying to blend the blocks into the board without the strips. It's all an illusion!

Donna--Your blocks just keep getting better the more you add. Your quilt is gonna be a knock out! I can't wait to see it all together.

Max

Nana,

Maybe I should name this quilt "The Penguin Gala"?
