1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Quilt Block Swap Round 6 Gallery on: August 26, 2014 09:15:22 PM
Im headed to ohio this weekend for an unrelated thing. Te man has already suggested we check out a joanns on the way home. . And maybe a few other fabric stores he "found" online. And people wonder why. I married him. Grin
I understand exactly why you married him!  Grin Anytime we're going to Tulsa my dh always asks whether I want to go to JoAnn's 'before or after' the other purpose for the trip, not 'if' I want to go. And Melladh, if you ever make it to Tulsa, I can take you to 2 JoAnn's, 2 Michael's, and 3 Hobby Lobbys plus several quilt fabric stores. We have an abundance of craft riches here.

*faints*

I've been to a JoAnn's once. It was amazing. If we had something like that here I might never leave. Roll Eyes
I'm halfway done with the herringbones! They are gorgeous. Imho.

lol I dress like that sometimes...I wonder if I am singeing the eyes off people who see me? Grin

If you are, you're doing it right Cheesy

I do not know the meaning of this "clashing" you speak of. Tongue Erhm.

Melladh, if it wasn't for the funny face, I would have thought you were serious too  Cheesy

Yeah, I forget sometimes that my exaggerated ways of expression doesn't necessarily come across as OTT online as when I do it with loudness and flourishing irl Roll Eyes Note to suggestion box: Exaggerated Flourish smilies.

I actually cut the first block bit on the herringbone this morning, and I love the effect of the sashing. I mean I complain about everything new when I first encounter it, and the cut 1'' WOF was a bit annoying (partially because WOF is a different size here, for solids) but I'm REALLY enjoying the smoothness of this block. So far. If it all turns to crap I'll hate it. Cheesy But right now, much love.

lol melladh...I think clashing is fun, but sometimes, I have to admit, it can look horrible in my eyes...I have redone many blocks because I did not like the colors together after I sewed them up! Grin

I haven't actually had that problem with anything I've sewed yet, but I've had some other .. things .. where I look at it and go "argh what is this monstrosity and why can't I stop looking at it it's wonderful and singeing my eyes at the same time" Cheesy

I do not know the meaning of this "clashing" you speak of. Tongue Erhm. USE ALL THE GREENS.
I think I've got the colors worked out, but we'll see Smiley I'm working on pinning the first sashed strip to the second strip (or, well, right now I'm working at my job, but when I'm not.. jobbing.. I'm pinning) so I should be able to finish before I leave for a week's vacation on saturday.

Clashing means they fight with one another; they don't look good together. I'll try to photograph the strips in the next day or so to show you what I mean before I replace the greens.

I was trying to make a funny >.> I fail. I think my blocks risk clashing with themselves you see, sometimes I'm quite inspired by clashing. I'll have to wait for judgement once I'm finished and post mine, and even then the screen isn't likely to show the colors right (nor will the camera have picked them up)

btw, I do try to keep them off the projects, but you look away for ten minutes to sew half the strips to the sashing, and when you look back, and she's just stealthed on there... -.-

Always love seeing this gallery fill up Smiley I've cut out the feature fabrics for the herringbone, soon going on to the sashing.

I don't 'do' halloween in any way but I sure do like the colors you've all used for those squares - orange, bright green and purple are some of my favorite!

Aw, i love halloween, and it's only just sort of started to be a thing here Cheesy

Halloween stars posted! Cheesy The photo seems extremely low contrast to me, but then again I've got a bright wall reflecting low sunlight just behind my screen (well.. and across the road..) so it's hard to see on my computer right now. Hopefully it's clear enough to see Smiley
