Very Kerry Berry Giveaway

Quilt Block Three

This is my latest Sho Fly Block and there are horsefly's in the middle which is what you find around lakes and ponds, then the blue for water and the two greens for the greenery that grows around the edge of water.  I like the block I just hope the person that it's going to will like it.

These are the three blocks I've made in the same pattern.  What a difference!!
This is Smokey and this is her chair.  I had not posted a photo of these guys for a long time.  Peanut Butter as you can see is half asleep as I woke him up.  I can really see him aging more than his sister.  They are 14 years old.
This is how you find them often and a lot of times Smokey has her leg draped over Peanut Butter.  They are very very good!!
Have a good day/evening!!

Quilt Blocks

I made this block this morning and as you can see it's the ShoFly Block.  I didn't know if I liked the colors but it's very pretty especially in person.  There is orange and what I'm calling two grays in the block. 
This is the same block but it looks so different.  These are more my colors but again I like the one above.
See this block below?  It's the same one as above but I sewed the bottom row wrong.  I was so mad that I didn't even take it out for a week as I had already taken a row of stitches out and resewed!  I'm glad to have it finished!  But I like to sew the blocks the very best.  I think I might like to quilt if I had a machine that was up to it.  So I just keep making blocks, sewing them into tops and very few things get finished.  But it makes me happy and it's a stress reliever.  I didn't just say that!  This block was a stress er!  But it's done.
The sun is shining and another day of heat.  I'd love to see it in the 60's for a few days as there are lots of weeds that need to be pulled.  I guess that I'll make blocks until it's cooler.
Have a great day/evening!!
