Stonefields, Part 2

Here are a few blocks from the Stonefields quilt Part 2. I have decided that I will try to just show the blocks as they are completed, hopefully you won't get sick of seeing them as there are lots of blocks in this quilt! First up are these blocks with little hexagon rosettes. These hexagons were just 3/8 " each and I had fun trying to find fabrics that I could use for fussy cutting. Then 2 square in a circle blocks. I hope the background on these blocks is not too strong.

This star is so pretty but sadly my inner star got out of alignment while stitching. I thought about removing it but decided that I can live with the slight wonkyness (I don't think that is a word but you know what I mean). I love the little lady in the middle. These are the little surprises that make working on this quilt so fun!

And here are 2 more that I have stitched. I love the little circle and cross block. Fun finding a stripe fabric for the cross. Those little star blocks were a touch tricky to keep in alignment but I am happy with them. I added a touch of "dark" in the star block and some of a mushroom neutral color, I think it adds a bit of spark.

So here is how it is all coming along.

Great progress on part 2. I love them all. So much fun to find fabrics to fussy cut for this project.

these are so beautiful and the background is not overpowering for me anyway (here speaks a person who loves a lot of texture lol). What lovely craftsmanship. I am totally jealous...I certainly will not get sick of seeing these all come together, hugs, Julierose

Very pretty Heather! I especially like the double star with the lady in the middle- the spotted lemon fabric was a great choice there and it doesn't look at all wonky to me :)

The wonkiness (as you called it) adds to the charm of that block. I wouldn't remove it either and anyway, it's hardly noticeable. The new blocks are just gorgeous.

I am sooooooooooo loving this! As always you are the queen of fabulous color combinations. Love it! Oh and you know I think wonkyness is a word and a good one at that. ;)

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
