I'm bad at taking pictures...

So I have been pretty loyal to making blocks, not so loyal to documenting them! I realized, though that I have pictures of Kim's, which I have already mailed out. I have pictures around here somewhere of Helene's too, but can't find it on the computer anywhere, and I just plain old forgot to take pictures of Dominque's. That will be my goal for the second half of this is to document the blocks as I send them out.

Without further ado, here is the block that I mailed to Kim:

Late Intro and a Question

Hi all-- My name is Andrea (screen name ceresas on the nest) and Jacki asked if I would fill in for someone. I just received the fabrics for the first six months that Jacki had left over- I have the following: ( please bear with my descriptions )
  1. Jacki's vintage prints
  2. Kennedy's white/blue-black and the purple flowers
  3. Dominique's pink flowers & purple swirls
  4. Kim's blue solid, green swirls, & orange bubbles
  5. Helene's brown & the blue and brown print
  6. Heather's turquoise and black & white
I just wanted to know who wanted ONLY these fabrics in their square, and who didn't mind a little addition here and there from my stash. Jacki managed to salvage an impressive amount from each month, so I should have plenty, but just in case...

I'll be working on these all weekend; I hope to be caught up and have it all mailed by Monday or Tuesday. I look forward to getting to know you ladies better!

May Fabric Preview

I know I am a bit behind in my blocks but I have my fabric ready at least. So MH helped me decide on the fabric for our quilt (it is not just for me). So we want to quilt to go in our living room. We used this picture as our inspiration (we love natural things... very organic). This is a painting hanging in our dining room (same space as the living room).
With that in mind, DH picked the main fabric I will be using for the backing and the boarder. I am also thinking about making a couple blocks with this. Our lucky number is 8 so I want to make some extra blocks so we have 16 total (I get 11 from all of you so I only need to make 5 more... if it happens). We love the colors in this and how much it looks like the pebbles under water like the above image.
So everyone is getting some of the black and white pebbled fabric (on the bottom) and one of the colored fabric. Sorry this picture sucks but my camera has been acting up lately. So everyone will get either: pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple. Please feel free to add any fabric you want that matches your color (pink with other pinks, etc).
So you know we like anything organic and earthy so go crazy. Please have fun with this. We are totally excited about this. Whatever you do we will love it. I can't wait to get started on my parts of this. Oh, and those I still owe squares to, they will be posted on here and then mailed out ASAP. I forgot them today when I went to the post office. Sorry! Thanks everyone!

Here is what I have so far...I am still waiting on 3. For those of you who are not finished with mine, do you know when you might be? I did not keep tabs of the names who sent these, so I don't know whose I'm missing....

Just curious...

If anyone whose month has passed, has been able to put their quilt together? Just curious to see how many squares people are missing.
