I am loving the French braid pattern a lot!  lovely job, sparkledust!

FoxyMama--the green garden fence blocks are fantastic!  I love all the shades of green you managed.  Also, the pinwheels and stars are so lovely!

I just want everyone in my groups to know that in every quilt block swap that I have been in here and elsewhere, I have managed to tweak even not so perfect blocks to fit...so please, don't sweat it for my blocks...I kind of like those blocks...I also collect orphan blocks for small projects or to donate to a large Lancaster county quilt guild for charity projects...each year, they collect these blocks and make quilts for all sorts of special people in need...and they are GORGEOUS!

Greetings Everyone,

Quick question FoxyMama, Did I get too crazy with the color mix here?

I haven't added the white boarder to it yet, just let me know if I have gone way over board on the mix here LOL.


Was just cutting and stitching and might of got carried away

well and wonderment

I had fun putting it together, perhaps to much, was just pulling long strips from my box, going "okay thats a blueish, tealies color, okay that's a reddish looking color, ohhh that has come gray in it. and gotta have some white" then I did the joining and Like "hmmm okay might be a bit too scrappy"

My blocks for FoxyMama may be even scrappier. If you know how large a 10 ream case of paper box is, imagine it filled with fat quarters. I went through my fat quarters and scraps pulling happy colors that also included white. When I finished, the box was full and my fabric stash barely had a dent in it. Think I may need to make one of those quilts for myself with the strips I'll have left. Decided a photo would give you a better idea. Looks like at least one block will have a lot of red.

Any of the fabrics I don't use for FoxyMama are going into Carol's pinwheels and stars. I'm challenging myself not to duplicate fabrics (other than black or white) in any of the blocks.

Okay I went ahead and put the boarder on the string block, If FoxyMama doesn't like it or can't use it in the quilt, will still send and she can make a pillow or bag or something out of it LOL.

think I will try one of the wonky Log Cabins so at least everyone has something up in my gallery. Then finish off my groups.

My daughter is just about packed for the road trip to Rhode Island on the First so with any luck I will have everyone done and shipped by then if not still will have about 20days when we get back, just really wanna have everyone done before hand *sighs*

I all works out in the end and the way it should

well and wonderment
