Christmas Card - October - Kathy - String blocks

Started by Kathy Gurgone. Last reply by Beth A. North Jan 3. 8 Replies

Well ladies, I guess I better add my name to this list before I forget.  I would like a 12.5 x 12.5" scrappy string block.  Recently, I have really gotten in the scrappy string block mood.  I love…Continue

Colleen would like the same pattern used as Kris, but with a slight twist.  She would like the center blue, the short side white and the long side red.Continue

Christmas Card - September - Lee - Crazy block

Started by Kathy Gurgone. Last reply by Beth A. North Jan 3. 2 Replies

Lee would like crazy blocks.  12.5 x 12.5"  Red, Whites, and Blues, of course.  I know that Lee likes live theater, so I was thinking maybe blocks that represented a different Broadway play.  Even…Continue

Melanie has decided to join the log cabin group, so by now everyone should have the instructions for this on, as it has been the most popular block for our group this year.  She would like the red…Continue

Awesome idea Kathy!

Hope to see all of you over on Needlespot soon! I don't know how much longer we'll be able to access this site. Hope everyone is doing well. Rocky passed advanced obedience training on Friday. Next phase is service dog training. Whew!  What a process!

finally got my last 3 blocks done - Colleens got mailed Saturday, Kris's is going in the mail Monday and I hand delivered Mels to her this morning. Sorry it took me so long to get them done. The first log cabin blocks i made were not the right size . I'd like to say it was the patterns fault but that would be a lie. It was definitely  my error.

Happy Easter to everyone

I have received my blocks from just about everyone.  I am so excited to do a Valor Quilt for my Nephew in Law to thank him for all that he sacrificed in Afghanistan.

Well, good to know some people have received their blocks!  Hope the other 5 got there.  I dropped Trudyann's off so I am sure she got hers.

Did my first basket block for Needlespot challenge.  Now need to catch up with block 2 before block 3 comes out.  Also made 20 bookend blocks for a swap at Calico Gals quilt shop and mailed them.  

I'm now working on my mother-in-law's birthday present - 8 placemats and napkins.  Got a hen and a rooster done - therre are pigs and cows too.  Very...

Yes!  I received my block from Melanie as well.  Love it!!!!!!  It fits so perfectly.  I am excited to get going on it, but have to finish up putting everything back in its place and mend.  Who knew that all the bending I have been doing on the floors has caused my bursitis to flare up.  Then I gave myself tendonitis in the elbow again.  Wow, just to save $5,000.  I know right, it still was a good idea.

I totally get the rabbit holes Melanie.  I am not paying to much attention to Needle Spot yet.  Taxes need done first, then customer quilts, then my quilts, then can have more fun.  Yeah, that sounds good..........squirrel.

Thank you for the beautiful block, Melanie! I finally got my mail after seeing the Kris got her block. Love the fabrics you used and the artwork on your card was just too cute! 

Comment by Kris Howell on April 4, 2022 at 10:21pm

Melanie - got your beautiful Log Cabin block!  Really like the flecks of red and blue in your white fabric.  Thank you :)

Good for you, Melanie! I hope you are well on the mend and feeling more like yourself.

Well, it looks like I am going to finish my quilt blocks this week - at long last!  Kris - if you can send me your address, that would be great.  I had SOOOOO much fun doing log cabin blocks and ripping them out! The sizes were all over the place.   I finally bought a pad with the pattern and did some paper piecing. I also did one with a template that worked.  But I may be a while doing my quilt since I would like to do a 16-block quilt for the pattern and I'm not ready to do any log cabins for a while....

I am also working on a church audit or two that were due this week.  Waiting for some information and hope to finish early next week.  

I have checked in on Needlespot and already got myself into trouble with the basket blocks.  Just can't seem to say no to starting new projects.  Where's Riana when you need her!

Have a great week ladies.  I am envious of all the remodeling going on.  We finished the bathroom and I would like to tackle more, but will wait for tax return.
