Thanks @Iminei , good idea! Will keep this in mind once I finish my 2 current things. Still working on Project Linus , so cant post pictures but also started a scrap quilt just for something to do. Will photos of it once I have made more progress. :D

Found it thanks @Iminei. If you go to MQ2020 and scroll to the bottom of the page it has options for older posts. MMmm now I'm tempted...

Just started listening to her.  She is such a tonic.  I love her "recipes" and how she talks.

Well yesterdays block was a joy! Took all my day tho' ... after procrastinating on here for most of the morning... but Im thrilled with the results, everything sewed together beautifully and came out just a smidge over the 6 1/2" size ... a teensy trim and I was done

Gorgeous!  I’m loving seeing your blocks, @Iminei , but have serious stash envy.  We need to go fabric shopping together.

OK,Houston I have a problem ......

Yep Youve guessed it ... its the patented Imi's run out of background fabric! D'OH!

As these blocks are coming fast and furious, one a day for two weeks ish Im reluctant to fall behind.

I DO have some other WoW fabric and wondered whether it would look too awful alongside the original fabrics OR should I sit on my hands and wait til the order I put in yesterday at Midsomer Quilting arrives ????

So as I've been playing with todays block ... I really dont like all the ?/8ths of an inch at all ... Is it possible to round the m's up to allow for Imis patented '1/4"' seam ??

 I have two to show you, one with the original BF, second with the new BF ...

What do you think Girls (dont we have any Guys here in the DS yet? ) I need your opinion!

PS If you love the batik as much as I do, it was a Chrimbo pressie from @Lowena  two years ago! Thx Hon xxx

I think they look good together - as long as there's a good mix (not random, but fairly equal) of them so it looks intentional!

And yes, that batik is gorgeous.   :loveit:
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I think the difference is noticeable when photographed against the background of the dark green cutting mat. However, once the wadding is in place behind the blocks, and the whole thing has been quilted .... I think the difference in fabrics will be negligible. Beautiful fabrics, by the way. <3

My Midsomer Quilting Delivery ... Hoorah! ... arrived this morn so I have been very busy catching up!!!

There was a mistake in yesterdays measurements which after being rectified made the block a lot easier to get to the right size, so in a way it was good I had to wait! :)

Block 5, yesterdays block ... all in one background fabric
