Hmmmmm .... those are strange leaves. Not my favorite block. Well, I guess there had to be one. Amazing work on the vining loopy swirly parts.

Thank you for the nice  compliment!  I don't sell or auction them off, I either drop them off at the guild meeting or take them myself.  

Pretty block. Gonna get your fabric in the mail today, maybe you will use some for this quilt.

I really need to dye more fabric......next trip to New Mexico will try to find my dyeing supplies.

For some reason I thought it was being auctioned off! I’ve yet to try a Cathedral window. Yours gives me the incentive to try.

Thank you!  It really is a very easy block.  Go to youtube.com and check out Jenny Doan's tutorial on the Easy Cathedral Windows.  You can actually chain piece it the way she shows it.  I will probably make another one but later.

While waiting for all the pieces and parts to come together on the quilt I'm working on I wanted to make some summer tops for preschool aged DGDs.  The problem, I want to use cotton, which  really doesn't work for DD style and Joanne's didn't have anything that I liked .                         Light bulb moment to day when I was in the city,  I went to a thrift store and bought four large sized men's dress shirts, cotton with wrinkle release. Not to mention I paid less than what it would cost for a yard of fabric,

good for you...and the planet! upcycle those old shirts...

I have not had any reports of problems with t shirt fabric "running".  And I've stopped going around/avoiding the logo too.  It doesn't pierce some of them, but as long as you aren't running too fsat, the thread doesn't skip or fray - I use superior threads so fine.  If I go too fast it will fray, but the tension stays fine.

My DD asked for a polymer clay dragonfly to put in her garden. I have some metallic clay that I used for the wings of this critter so I'm calling it a dragonfly.  wink
