We Are Half Done!

Connie B is using Morris prints
Half of 49 blocks is 24-1/2, and here it is mid week after Block 24. According to my math we are half way there.

Cynthia H.

I took some screenshots off our Flickr page so you can get an idea of how others are progressing.


I've grabbed these over the past few months so most of you are probably even further along now.
I did a little PhotoShopping on some of them, cropping them, squaring them up and brightening the light.


I took this photo myself and PhotoShop can't fix out of focus.


There are some great color ideas in play here.

Flobis31 has hers sewn together too.

Purples and gold...

purple and gold in different shades

Yet another take on the violet with the British green and white.

Setting it together with a counterchange frame---
alternating dark and light borders on the blocks.

Rosemary is recalling a cheery 1930s look.

Spiral is using the American gold theme

Becky's got her green blocks sewn together with a pop of pink.

Dustin's going to do a medallion, 
grouping all his different colorways in areas.

I have the last Saturday on my calendar as August 3.
Congratulations to all who are keeping up!

  14. Thank you for posting my blocks, so interesting to see the different Fabrics everyone is choosing. Always love the journey part.

  15. It's amazing how different the same blocks all look when made up/pieced with different fabrics, my favourite is Cynthia H's but they're all great.
