  35. I'm pretty smitten with block #3, but it was a difficult choice!

    ReplyDelete

  42. Hi, Debby! So glad you are part of the blog hop! All 3 blocks are great but if I have to choose I like #1 Daffodil best. I love the hope that blooms with the daffodils in the spring and the yellow in this block just POPS with its background. I can see many ways to make all 3 blocks from my stash. Looks like I can branch out even further in 2016 for my giveaways. Thanks for the gem tutorial and thanks as always for inspiration and encouragement. See you next expo.

  89. It was a hard choice between block one and 3. I am going with Daffodil, block #1. I think it would make a wonderful quilt using all the colors. One color each daffodil-what a spring quilt .

  97. You're designs are amazing!I could see all of the designs becoming a table runner, quilt, or even a wall hanging. But you got me with block #3, the heart shape. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I love daffodils so have to go with block number 1.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I like block #2 best - probably because it has a more scrappy look.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I am loving all those bright colors in this collection. I liked block #2 the best.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I like the #2 best. Perhaps if I were to see them all in a quilt I would change my mind, but as an individual unit I like #2

    ReplyDelete
  102. Number 3 is my choice. Love the hearts.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Block 1, but I think I might like the others, too, if some of that yellow was in them. To my eye (possibly on my monitor), the green and blue brought down the 'pop' value and almost made the blocks look a little muddy. Great potential, though. Thanks for the ideas, and for the chance to win those great fabrics!
