I LOVE talking about blocks, studying blocks, and playing with them in Photoshop... I am always on a quest for great blocks and trying to figure out what makes them so great ... So I started this companion blog that will be devoted to this quest. But also check out my regular blog at http://olderrose.blogspot.com

In the pink!!!

Lisa's block has arrived... She put 4 fans on one block so since there are 5 in the RR someone gets to work the center and I am looking forward to doing it... I'm thinking flowers and butterflies and want to bring in other colors as well as use the dramatic black accent that Judy started... 

I remembered seeing a sane quilt pattern that had butterflies with fan-like wings on black which will be perfect... 
If others follow the black on the fans, the finished block should look something like this!!!   I think it will be gorgeous.  I will have to wait a week or so to start until I finish the suffrage quilt...


  1. I think that will be really pretty. I love butterflies and black - not so much pink but the black really makes it :). Have fun with it.

  2. this will be glorious hope you get a photo of it finished and share it with us all
