On its way to Nathalie!

Hope this is what you had in mind, Nathalie. Enjoy!

Red and White Churn Dash

Here is an update on the blocks. Thank you so much to those of you who have sent them already. They are looking great.
See? All reds look good together when you include the range from dark to bright. Thanks again.
PS. The row above is my first EPP project in the works.

I'm not crazy about it

I am not happy with the colors! Did I switch the warm and cool? Should the green be a bit softer? It was fun...but, if you're not happy, let me know and I would so be happy to whip a different one  up. Bummed, Elaine

November Block

I just posted a tutorial on my website for the November block.   The block is the Goose in the Pond block.  Below are two pictures of what the block looks like.  It is a 15" finished block.
my drawing of the block and color placement

a finished block with red and blue fabrics
I would like you to choose fabrics from your stash to make this block.  The background is to be a white with black print.  The outside 1/2 square blocks are to be from the Cool side of the color wheel (something from the green, blue, purple, blue-green, blue-violet families) The inside strips and 9 patches are to be from the Warm side of the color wheel (something from the red, orange, yellow, red-orange, Pink, yellow-orange families).  It will be fun to see what combinations and fabrics you come up with for this block.  Thank you in advance.

Blocks on the way!

Here is your block Marls...I mailed it last week. I hope you like it. I tried to use brights, but Nathalie REALLY has brights! The lady at the post office said if I put "fabric" or "quilt" in the item space, it will go through customs faster. So I printed my own postage at home and hopefully you should receive it soon. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
                                                                                                               The red and white churn dash block was fun. I love this pattern..interestingly, I have never made one. I really had fun with it and am now determined to make one for me. I love red and white quilts. Thank you Karen, your block was also mailed out last week...did you get it yet?
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        For Brenda, I found some dots that I hope you like. Polka dots are one of my favorite mediums. I would love a polka dot sofa. Might me a bit much, but I think it would be fun!
I had to get my two trigger fingers fixed on the 26th of Sept and was an absolute baby about it. I was so afraid my fingers wouldn't work again...big baby! I just have to get my strength back in them now. Brenda, your blocks are going out in the morning. This is really fun. Thank you ladies, Elaine
