The most delightful story was with this block! I have to wait because I want to do it in the metropolitan fair pinks and browns.

I'm puzzled by this. Are these blocks in EQ7, Blockbase?  She does refer to using EQ but I can't find the block by any name in EQ7. It's a simple block that doesn't look like a problem to create it myself in EQ7 but I was just wondering.

Never mind, I found the answer on her blog. I just didn't read far enough.

Judy T It took me awhile to figure out how BB site worked and for that matter finding the block. But once I found everything I was okay. I am having trouble tracking down the fabrics she is using, pinks and tans from her line. I usually do my own thing but on this one I really want to use Metropolitan Fair. I found a place that had quite a number of them but can't remember where it is lol. If I have to I will write her a note and see what happens.

Mel,I decided not to use that fabric she is using for the blocks ,I was not that fond of it . I have enough CW fabric that I can just do a scrappy .which I like better ,now that's just me.  LOL   . I did find some pink fabric in my stash that would work and I may do a couple of the blocks with it .  Barbara

Barbara, I thought about scrappy since I seem to go that direction whether I want to or not. LOL But decided to see how many of the Metro line I could find and have managed to find all but one! Too much quiet time! LOL. I do think I'll order it, will sleep on it first. My CW fab is in Raytown, there in lies the problem! Oh well, I have Snowmen blocks to make!

I am going to have to check out. I don't have much CW fabric as the only one I'Ve done was a miniature quilt. No left over fabric. When I get home today I'll have to look at it.

Is there a way you can just print off the pattern without all the story from her email? I am so computer illiterate that I can't figure it out. Can someone  help?

I think I'm with Kris, I want to print off the pattern but will do it later, after some UFO completions.

I'm not sure when I'll actually get around to making these blocks but I'll save each one into a EQ7 project for "someday". I hope the rest of them are also found in her Building Blocks designs. It makes it easier for me, then I can easily make them any size or test various fabrics before actually making it.
