I will have to see what I can find for background. Not sure I have what Teresa is suggesting and not sure what "swirls" (refer to Sept lotto) she is referring to. She seems to be MIA, hoping she is not having issues getting in again or worse yet the Shingles are horrendous! Prayers for quick recovery. If I remember right it takes about 10 days.
Have a great day! Valerie

Sorry about being missing. Shingles are definitely not fun especially when it begins but I am doing better.

Valerie you used a background in last months block that would be perfect in this one. I will text you a picture. Hope you have more but I know whatever background you used will be perfect 👌

Thank you all for joining!!! Now we just need to gently twist some more pals to join in.

I thought you said no smudges. The grunge to me was "smudges". Yes, I have maybe a quarter yard left
Have a great day! Valerie

I have 12 in progress.

Now that I have started sewing them together I realize I miscut my background. Try to adjust on the seam and it's just to small, putting away for now. UGH! May try later in the month
Have a great day! Valerie
