Well it's Saturday so that means that the next block in Grandmother's Choice has been posted. 

 Here's #2 with my fabric choices.  The block is called Amethyst.   EQ7 has it listed as Priscilla so I printed the templates from there.
And it has the dreaded Y-seams.  I've sewn them before but I kinda forgot how for sure.  But I didn't want to come all the way back out here to get on the computer to find out how to do them right so I just muddled around and finally got the block all together. Believe it or not .... it doesn't look too bad.  lol
But I do think I'll study up on them a bit the next time just to make it easier on myself.  ;o) 

There's a Flicker Group set up for everyone to post their pictures of their blocks each week if you'd like to take a look.  Quite a selection of fabric choices.
Thanks for stopping by....Linda


  1. YAY for you in sewing the Y-seams - your block looks GREAT! And I LOVE the yellow stripe in the pointy section. - ;))

  2. I don't join quilt alongs because I'm always afraid I can't keep up. I decided to do this one. Okay, not so great a start. The second block has been posted, some people are done making it, and other than printing some things out, I haven't started either one.

    Congratulations! Amethyst is one of my favorite colors--but I'm not using it in these blocks.


I try to always reply back to anyone that takes their precious time to comment on my blog so I sure hope you have your email enabled.
