Marge your fabrics are lovely and I like the contrast of the beige subtle print.  Beautiful work!  I had to laugh, I too, have many rulers I purchased over the years but some of them are hiding from me and doing a really good job of it :-) 

 

Nana, so happy to hear your husband is home and doing well.  Hopefully this event will scare your hubby into following the doctor's orders and listening to you.  Prayers for you both continue!!

Marge P:

Anyway here are my blocks and the tan pattern has decided to show up in this photo.  

 

Marge P, I really like your fabrics. Have you picked a border fabric? I thought I had but now I'm not sure.

I really like the texture your beige fabrics give to the blocks Marge. When you're done with your cleaning can you hop over the mountain and work on mine? I, too, have lost several blocks. Now I just make several extra at the beginning so I usually have leftovers for my ufo pile.  ; -)

Nancy -Thanks!  You are probably right about taking photos through the plastic as the dark is a Moda Marble and look at all the different shades that have popped up.  Wierd!  I did enjoy using the triangulations - I don't mind taking off the paper backing so it works for me.  Also you can make HST's in 1/16th increments if you have a pattern that needs to be tweaked some.

Helen - Thanks! Glad I am not the only one who loses rulers and other little things in my sewing room.  I am sure it will show up if I take the time to just clean things up!

Judy EE - LOL  If you don't mind waiting till the next decade, I might make it over the mountains to help you out! :-)  I think your idea of making extra blocks is a good one.  I was just feeling so smug cause 9 x 24 = 216 so I thought I had it made in the shade. HA!  My DH thinks I miscounted so if I did, I did it numerous times. :-(

Judy T - I think I have my border fabric but there are two different ones that I bought when I bought the burgundy for a tablecloth.  Here is a picture of all the fabrics together.  Will probably use the large floral but want to get the tan and burgundy mottled in somewhere.

Yes, Marge and when you're finished with Judy EE simply turn north up I-5 and come to my house. Especially if you like challenges! :-)

Ohh, too pretty Marge.  I'm playing with borders. I'm sure I'll change my mind once the top is all pieced. At first I was going with the floral in the first picture but the strong contrast bothers me a bit since there isn't any dark in the pieces. Then I saw some pink/tan fabric tucked back on my shelf. I rather like it but will see how it looks later.

Judy T

I love the roses on the dark background.  It's really dramatic and exciting.  I'm less keen on the other one but the colors do go with it.

I know what you mean. The dramatic look is what drew me to the roses on black in the first place. Then I started feeling like it was too much drama. Guess I'll know better when the top is completed. Thanks for your input, it helps me look at it again.

jen, the way i read this, you will end up with 18.  it looks like you started out with 18 dark/light/dark segments and sewed the light  2 inch squares to them.    the instructions say you will have extras of the 2" lights.

anybody have an opinion here?   i've been known to be wrong.  it doesn't happen often, and catches me by surprise, but i do get things wrong   ;  )   well, maybe i'm not that surprised when it happens.   

i've been busy,  but i am  starting  this over the weekend and i will better be able to answer your questions.

Judy the rose border fabric is perfect for your peach and beige blocks. 

Marge I just love the pink hydrangea border fabric for your border, just beautiful!
