        Barbara - Love Mary-Louise's use of men's ties (shown in your blog)-- so creative and the dark background really shows them off. Was the background fabric also silk? A silk quilt is still on my someday list!

            Absolutely beautiful fabric choices!

          For my month 5 blocks, I experimented by mixing different fabrics. When I sewed the blocks to months one to four, I realized I should have used my eyes, not just my heart when picking fabric for vases. I know I can balance out dark/light in the next few months.

            Suzanne, Your quilt is coming along beautifully. I think the vases will look great if you just continue with what you did for the vases on the side blocks. HelenW

            So far it has been fairly easy to keep up. I am hoping I can maintain this over the summer. I have been cutting my applique pieces using my Brother Scan n Cut which makes the process quite easy. For some of the applique this time I substituted Sulky iron on stabilizer for freezer paper using the paper on top method for needle turn applique and I liked it a lot. The stabilizer is lighter weight than the paper.

              Jeanne, love your colors. I think the work gets easier from here. One appliqué block and one pieced block months 6-9, then 4 simple appliqué blocks once you start the Diamond borders.

              Jeanne, I like the half square triangle idea for the second border. Nice!!! HelenW

              Like the Black and White 1. Borderline and the Team Vanessa in the 2.border. IT gives good structure
              To the quilt.

            I was not sure I could finish 2 applique blocks in a month, this was a great challenge!
