Melinda's Sneak Peek

I got Melinda's block in the mail today so here's a little sneak peek:

Melinda - I failed to remember that you wanted a white background (until after I re-read the paper you sent) so this one may have more color than you were hoping for...I hope that's okay.

Helpful Info

I just had a talk with my Post Master here in the town I live. I have been sending my flowers in yellow envelopes. She asked me to try and remember to take off the metal tabs off the back. They get stuck in the machines and they have to process them by hand. If you don't take them off then you need to cover them with a sticker or tape. I am not sure if this is true for all post offices but I thought
I would pass on some helpful info. I hope every body is having a good day.

Is It Just Me?

I haven't received my fabrics for the month of april yet and was wondering if anyone else has?

On another note I am having a giveaway for the Bee participants.
A fat quarter of bundle of Swoon by Mellisa Averinos in the Cerise Pink colorway!

Since we have 23 paticipants, when we reach 23 comments I will draw a winner.
Good luck!

An Overflow from March

Isn't it just the way of the world that when I would very much like to post about the lovely blocks you ladies sent to me, my computer manages to pick up a virus? Well, according to my techy it actually picked up several dozen viruses, but anyway the faithful lappy has returned with a clean bill of health and I can now post about the fabulous blocks I got last month! Seriously, y'all are so talented it's amazing.

Charlene made this gorgeous block for me and guess what? She did it while waiting for news of her grandson stationed in Japan. More emotional turmoil than you can shake a stick at and she still is able to make a beautiful block for me. Beyond amazing. 

Debra's block just got here yesterday and it is so adorable! I love the lantern effect of this block! 

Jorie's lovely Card Trick only had to travel from one side of town to another. I love the way all the fabrics interact in here. 

Linda's fabulous block arrived just before my computer's meltdown and I was so sad not to be able to post about it instantly. I love the gold frame and the way the bits of cloud pop out from the Oriental. 

I really like the way the black and blue fabrics pop out in Melissa's wonderful block. 

And finally, another block from the early days without my computer, this one from Tamera. It's like there are gold arrows pointing to the roses, saying aren't they gorgeous? 
Yes they are! Just like every block I've received :)

Lana's block for Robyn...

Hi Robyn,
I am still catching up...but I have added a little something in with your
block that I hope will make you happy!
I did run out of fabric for what I wanted to do, 
but having grown up in Okinawa, I do think I found a nice piece to add a little zing...
The best part is that if you don't care for it, it can easily removed and replaced...
Here's  your little sneak peak. Your block will go out tomorrow!
I do hope you like it...


From Shannon to Melinda

Here is a sneak peek Melinda. I loved playing with this fabric. I loved the colors. 

I have to confess that I had a hard time. I found the pattern I wanted to do. I started cutting and realized I was not going to have enough of one of the colors. I found a second block I liked and again the same thing. Well after I found a third block and realized I was not going to have enough again, I went a little crazy. But I figured it out. That is what I love about quilting, if it don't work out the way you had planned then do something different even if you are in mid-stream. (I guess that is true about most things but I love it for quilting.)

Below is a stack of murdered fabric. LOL!!

I killed the white so badly that I used some of my own, I hope that was ok. It is Kona White. I hope that if fits in with your other blocks. Have a great evening.

April Blocks for Melinda

Bailey pointed out that I didn't request a specific size block. I would like blocks that are either 9 or 12 inches ( 9 1/2 or 12 1/2 when sent to me. Hope that helps. Let me know if there are any other areas you are confused about. Thanks to all who are making blocks for me.
