Looking into my crystal ball, I can see Anael making a 3rd quilt - this time in only 2 colors: red and white! LOL

Elaine, can't believe it myself either Wink I've been thinking about a second one for some time, all in greens and blues and when Lynda started the new BOW I thought 'oh why not'. Maybe lap size? I haven't decided yet.

LOL bluesnail, I don't think so. There's still my Dear Jane and FWS to finish too. Life would sure be easier with quilts in only two colors Wink

Thanks Char! Using only green and blue is not as easy as I thought it would be.

This is the last one I made today, it's Bright Hopes.

Anael, either you're an overachiever or you have way too much time on your hands. I can't even get one done and you're starting on your second one. Way to go girl!!!

Thanks ladies Smile

@meme quilts: I think I have too much time......LOL. Though I'm quite busy these past few weeks with visiting my grandkids in hospital, making snuggles, smocks and sheets and helping out my DS and DDIL. Does that make me an overachiever? LOL I don't care what I am as long as it's fun making those blocks. I realized I should finish my Dear Jane instead of starting a second Sylvia! Oh well, what's one more PIG?

Anael, I'm just jealous that you have finished one and are starting another while mine is just laying there staring at me saying: work on me too sometime.

Anael, How I admire your ability to get so much done. I am determined, but not enough to make the progress you do. Something always seems to get me obligated in another direction before I get the decks cleared enough. Roll Eyes

Meme quilts, I think jealousy made me finish mine Wink I saw Elaine's finished Sylvia and I was so jealous she finished LOL So I told myself I had to finish mine too.
Starting another one is another thing. I didn't like all the choices I made with my first one and thought about doing one with the same color background. I won't say I"m doing all the blocks, maybe just lap size. Lots of time to decide on that.

Besides, I don't have a real job. I'm working part time which takes about 10 hours a week, not more. So it's easy to get things done if I weren't distracted all the time! I have to kick myself to get started and stay at what I'm doing. I'm not good at that!

Thanks for the compliment! As you have noticed I've done some easy ones first LOL. Wanted to do row by row but decided to follow the book and wait what Lynda wants us to do every week.

Anael - your blocks are beautiful - just stopped in to see where you all were with this project after giving it up after less than a dozen blocks Smile I was able to use them in other projects though so they didn't go to waste. I do like looking at what you all have been doing though.

Anael, pretty soon we are going to have to call you Miss Sylvia. Love you color choices. This should also be a beauty.
Did you ever decide on a sashing and bindind for the other one?

PatriciaAnn, yes I did but now to find the right fabric at the right price. And I still have to decide whether I want cornerstones or not.

I've been following this thread for a while and I am so impressed with you all. Beautiful, beautiful blocks and quilts.

Anael - I love your new color scheme (totally my favorite colors) and can't wait to see this one progress. Good luck!!



There are seven days in a week and Someday isn't one of them.

Thank you Elaine. Yes I finished all the blocks but didn't sew them together yet. I'm still looking for the right sashing. I plan on doing the quilting myself.....I hope some day I can find the courage.

Anael~ LOVE your colors choices, as usual. Wish you could come and help me match fabrics to make quilts out of my stash Smile
Yes, I'm still working on mine. My dad passed away last month and took all the wind out of my sails, so I haven't been doing much sewing. I did finally dig out the box with the fabrics in it and am starting to make more kits for more blocks.

Love seeing all these blocks. I really wanted to do some of these while we were camping a couple of weeks ago. Somewhere I have some block kits put together, but now I can't find them. I guess that means I need to clean up my quilting studio.
