Connie
As usual I love your blocks!
I am facinated at your fabric stash
Most of them are fabrics that I would not choose but in your blocks I love them!
guess I limit myself too much when I purchase my fabrics....sigh
Looking forward to seeing these blocks together in the quilt
good job

Great blocks Connie. I'm with Carolyn, I'm very intrigued with your fabric choices.

I think the variety of fabrics that each of use choose lets our quilts be expressions of who we are (unless someone else picked the fabric, of course). When I first got these fabrics, I had no clue what I would use them for, but they finally found a purpose, and I am glad.

I just received my book and had thought about using the Lecien fabrics as well. Yours are stunning and your piecing is perfect. Great blog!
