So there you go that is my HUGE list!!!!


  1. Your list could be bigger. At least you're making progress. I like the wonky block, that would be a challenge for me.

  2. I love your new background and some of those new links you have put on the sidebar! Your list though is daunting!

  3. I think the lights/darks in the little postage stamp quilts are really hard to get right. Sometimes a medium looks light when next to a dark, but then looks dark next to a light. Someone once recommended to stick with whites/barely whites for the lights and all colors go to color/darks. That helped my blocks.

    I like the print you chose for the wonky cross. Very fun.

  4. I love your new background too:) Wonky blocks look like so much fun.

  5. you are so busy....love the flowers in your background....lovely

  6. Hi Mrs.Pickles....thanks for your lovely comment...normally I would get back to your with an email...but my desktop is way too slow lately....and no mail set up on my laptop for blogger....so Here I am...lol

  7. What would we do without lists!

  8. Yup gorgeous background. Those 16p's look great! They totally are alternatey enough, this coming from the person they're for. ha ha. I just didn't want groupings of lights or darks together because they would draw your eye. Thanks for your hard work!!

  9. Admirable how you keep plugging away at your W.I.P. list. You'll get there... (I just ignore mine :-( )
