My bags are packed - well almost

I'm leaving tomorrow morning for 2 weeks to my mom's house out east. My sister says they installed high speed wireless since the last time I was out there, so I'm hoping I can keep in touch - but just in case I don't - you know why!

Above is my Medallion Reproduction Challenge. I'm suppose to have round 3 done by the end of this month. Well..... I think I'm going to have to settle for one side! The center theme was 1) Your favorite, whether that be favorite block, fabric, color - whatever. Round 2 was Frame It. I went simple with the plain border. Round 3 is "Diamonds are a girls best friend". Once again I'm going simple with squares on point since the center is the main feature. I'm thinking the next round or so I will go a bit more detailed again. Just depends on what the round theme is I guess. Round 4 which needs to be done by end of July is "Bountiful Garden". I"m still thinking on that one. You know I"m not a super floral type girl!

So - toodles everyone!

I recently saw this pieced star pattern in a book or back issue magazine and said, "I've seen that quilt before. That's Dawn's quilt!" How Fun!

Enjoy your time with your mom - lots of chats and stitching time, too. Oh and let me say that I'm drooling over your block . . . again *s*

Your block looks like a harder version of the feathered star...absolutely stunning. All those half square triangles, you did a great job.
Have a good trip.

How pretty - I like this type of Round Robin where you do each round yourself.
