Sunday check in...

The last two blocks for the week are done and in the plastic tub I labeled for this quilt. Gotta have a special tub for them to wait in right?

# 7 ...Bitter Enemy.. I didn't realize that the block was brown and blue until I had cut the squares, but I like this coloration.

#8 ... Splendid Victory....

I know that 8 blocks, but I did an extra in there. I won't have a block for a few days since I'll be waiting for my other book before I can start the next 7 of them. SO stay tuned.

These blocks are 6" finished for a few that have asked. Also the person who asked how all my points and seams turn out so perfect. Look closely and you'll see that they aren't all that perfect, but I do work hard for them to be right. I would have answered privately but you are not set up for any email. The biggest trick is cutting accurately, sew a consistent seam, press with lots of steam and I always press for construction and make sure I have opposing seams at all junctions.

The ring for this group is now located on the sidebar, but people are still putting the links on their blogs so it has a few missing links. If you want to go around you can always click on the term List and click on the individual blogs.

Wow - when you decide on a project, you take off. The blocks look great . . . still going to sit on the sidelines - for the time being anyway *s*
