I like the sun rise over the mountains, it looks like my part of the country also (Eastern Canada)

I'll try again to comment. 3rd time never fails, right? Love your concept. Have to search my stash for a piece of seashore to try a block, My background color won't go with it at all, but I hope I can come up with something. This is just smashing!

Thank you.

My "background color" is white, but I have used several different colors in my blocks.

Ok, that went thru. Let's try again. I love the yellow and white fabric you used to take your picture of the block. Is that part of the quilt, your ironing board cover, or what? See, I notice everything when it comes to fabric

That is a sheet covering the quilt I have on my hand-quilting frame. My mom gave me 2 like this---this yellow one and a pink one---several years ago. I, too, love the fabric.

I noticed you took the sewing machine 911 course. Did you find it helpful? I know it's free.....just curious. I have a couple of different brand machines that sometimes give me fits with bobbin and tension issues

It was very helpful, Lots of it is elementary stuff for new users, but the sections on troubleshooting (I didn't watch it all, just printed out the course materials for that part) and cleaning were great.

Thanks for the insight. I think I will check it out. If you go to Craftsy Platform on the talk section of BOM class, search around 5/18/12 for my blocks. I responded to questions about "adding pictures", which has been a royal pain for me. Hey, Boston, we lived in Wakefield for 40 or more years. Small world
