ding ding ding

here is the Old School Saturday Sampler at the end of round three...
it seemed more impressive when i was sewing the pieced border the night before saturday's meeting
the other Neutrals have baskets or panes or big pieced blocks in their centers ... the Brights' centers are a lot more interesting than the Neutrals - but none of them hold a candle to Auntia's ... oh ... wait ... she says she's gonna start blogging again, so i'd best not post a picture of hers just yet... 
i'll give her a month before i give steal her thunder... 
this month's assignment is this block...
what does that look like to you?!?
i dunno ... it just looks wrong to me... 
like a roofless house knocked over onto its side... 
or maybe an archway that someone forgot to round off... 
so far, mine looks like this...
the little fairy was supposed to have pigtails, but they made her look like she was wearing Mickey Mouse ears ... i am gonna stitch some lines to give the tunnel some depth ... she isn't supposed to be levitating, even if fairies do fly 
except that In Real Life, it isn't crooked ... i really ought to read the instruction book for my camera...

p.s. to Molly - the dandelion blower block is 16" x 16"

Had to go back and have a look at your last post.....and yes. I agree, this next block doesn't look like much of anything....what were they thinking? Your fairy looks cute though, even without Mickey Mouse ears!

Well......she's a cute little fairy anyway! And we all know that fairies fly. I like your dandelion blower, she looks even more gorgeous with the extra borders.

Very cute fairy. It's perfect to go with the dandelion girl!
