Love it............

I am so excited....
.....I have cut all the fabrics for most of the blocks and sorted them into bags....
....finally I got my block "G" together..............
I finished the stitcheries for this block a few weeks ago and had the bundle of fabric sitting on the sewing table that I walk past numerous times a day.............I was worried that I had picked the wrong fabrics or didn't have enough "light" fabrics............did I have to much "blue" 
now it is together I am so happy with my choices.........
so how is everyone else going with there 1st block whatever that one is for you............we need to get some more letters beside everyones names so we can see some progress.............it's the end of the month tomorrow........
&&&&
keep stitching away...............we don't want you to pack this one up and put it back into the cupboard.........15 mins here or there all adds up........
Catch you later..............

I think that you have the right 'balance' of colours! It all matches together beautifully...thread and fabrics!
I really enjoy the slideshow of comleted blocks...how different they all are!

Well done you. I don't think it's too much blue, again another colourway to add to our varied collection.

OMG!!It looks ever so nice with blue thread and no pink at all;my next choice!I love enlargeing everyones pictures. Sometimes I find that I have really have missed a stitch here and there.
I am still sorting out fabrics, hopefully the border is on its way soon. My block A is soon ready.

Well done Donna, that block looks great. The colours are lovely, can't wait to get into the actually stitching of my blocks. I have done the stitching for the blocks right up till July, starting August tomorrow so achieving something anyway. But I do love your colours.
