Two more blocks--completed!

This is block H(July)...I finished it last week...It is extremely hard to get all of it in the photo because it is such a long block...I love those little wreath blocks...
I managed to finish this one today...This is Block B..I know it is out of order but I had the stitching done so I wanted to put it together...Plus, I used some of the fabric from the swap I did with Lee in North Carolina...Lee doesn't have a blog and Jennifer is posting her progress for her...."Can you spot her fabric?" When I finish and put on the label, I will refer to this block and note that the fabric was from her.

This block is going to butt up against the 'no place like home' block...see that long pink piece on the side..It is one of the border blocks for the house....Hum, I wonder if this gets us to 100...Chooky?...
My 1&1/2 inch squares have given me problems...They seemed to lay even on this one...there were just so many of them.
I'm loving this stitch-a-long...my first ever...it is wonderful meeting all of you and learning about you as we go along.
Happy stitching,
Mama Bear

wow great work on your quilt...........you have 5 blocks done so your past 1/2 way........
lovely to have some of Lee's fabrics in your quilt........

I have a confession to make I can't count properly and had the total we had done so far wrong but we are right now and your blocks will take us to 97..........so not far off.........I think we can make it.........

Fantastic, you are on a roll... I'm hoping to get another block completed soon too. Wish my job was sewing/stitching....

Your blocks are lovely....I saw my fabric and you did a great job placing it just in the right spot! I have the long one finished, but haven't taken the pictures yet! I am seriously having fun. My sewing room is a mess too many small scraps everywhere!!! Our wallhangings are going to be beautiful. We are going to be so proud of ourselves! lol

Lee, Maybe we all should show our sewing room...I clean mine up once a week and then get right back to work...In the meantime, on one table I am doing scrapbooking...today, I scanned and printed oodles of photos...it all becomes cluttered very quickly.

Hey Mama Bear, You're going really well. Know you said you were having fits with the little squares but they look great from here. We're living in a shed at the moment while we build a house and it's total clutter. Do you perfer to be called Sammie or Mama Bear? .....Lynda C
