  1. Oh just 86, you'll be there in no time!! Really like these blocks. You've used the solids colours very effectively.

  2. amelia - your blocks are just gorgeous - you'll have a beautiful quilt at the end of this, regardless of the number of blocks you end up with

  3. Wow! I love these, they are stunning. The solids work so well, and I love how you stay within a colourway for each block

  4. They look fabulous. I love them...

  5. Wow, your blocks are amazing, LOVE the solids. What a great idea!

  6. My goodness your blocks are beautiful! I love that you are using solids, what a fantastic idea. Your post makes me want to dig into my blocks!

  7. I love them!
    I'm thinking of changing my fabric choice as I really don't love them enough to keep going...I love what you have done!

  8. After seeing these blocks I have decided I must try some shot cottons. So beautiful!

  9. These are absolutely gorgeous blocks!

  10. Amazing! What fabrics are you using? Do you know how much yardage it will take in total? Thank you!

  11. This is going to be gorgeous! I have been thinking about jumping on the fwqa bandwagon but have yet to buy the book and find the time...but i wanted to do it in solids. what fabrics did you choose and how much of each did you buy? are the instructions clear for the quilt along? But keep up the great work on your quilt!

    PS - how did you get a mosaic like picture of all your blocks like that? =)
