Here's how I started Tuesday sewing night.  Dancing With The Stars Finals had the outcome I'd hoped for after Derek and Maria were eliminated.  Donald really improved over the last weeks...just loved his Country Dancing...not that I'm necessarily a Country Western kinda girl!  I had no idea the show was to last until 11pm PST.  Way past my bedtime, but it did provide enough time for a Final with Kamile.  Perhaps a Semi-Final is more appropriate since I've still got the assembly of the sashing and setting triangles yet to go! 

Placement of blocks still needs to be figured out.  I can see from the current layout that the light purple flower that is fourth down on the left side needs to be moved in, but also keep it away from that bright blue one.  Pinks and purples may need to be distributed a little bit better too.  I think I brought in enough yellows and oranges with the last 11 flowers.  The sashing will add 2" around each block making Kamile "blossom" further.

Hope you are having a good week.  Memorial Day Weekend is nearly upon us; it will be the first paid holiday for me this year...there's a long drought between Christmas/New Years and Memorial Day!

I can't believe how quickly you have put these blocks together--and it is stunning!

Wow! I just looked at the last post a few hours ago, so it feels like you did the rest of the blocks in minutes. What color is the sashing going to be?

Lol. Certainly not minutes on this one! All the fabric forward is background except terra-cotta 2" squares at the union of the blocks between the sashing

Thanks Janet. I'm very pleased.

You will have to tell your friends that you have a magic wand, and that is how you get your blocks done so fast. lol
