"Thank you Kathy and Linda,
Hubby doesn't care for the green, but the 2 1/2" squares were navy and green. So, I used up all of my related greens in my stash. I also used up all my medium and light blues. My cleaning lady…"
"Thank you, Barbara. I won the scraps of navy and green Hoffman fabric in a tea cup auction and cut them all in 2 1/2" or 3" squares. I bought a fabric at QOV with blue, white, and green with the words "Nice To Be…"
"Yes, Ginny, I think that I will. I already picked out fabric for the 18 block 1s. I just don't like the blooms - they have so many little pieces. I'd like to substitute a less difficult flower for the 6 …"
"Linda, I also bought lots of pre-cuts at a big Connecting Threads sale last year and I haven't got through them yet. I have only 1 batt left from my order of 5 so I am going to wait until the batt sale comes up again.
This morning I…"
"Ginny, I'm going to hand in the quilt with the one I finished in January when I go to the sew-in in April. Hopefully the quilting is so dense and people are so busy - they won't notice the blue marks. I'll let you…"
"Mary, I like your murder mystery quilt! Have you solved the who-dun-it? It is going to be such a unique quilt.
I did so well today. Hubby said that if I worked everyday like today I'd be turning out finished quilts every 2…"
"Riana, you make me feel ashamed I "vented" too much yesterday. I am going back to my sewing of a pieced backing this morning. That work is fun and easy!
I liked how you saved your friend's quilt - although taking out…"
"Thank you, Barbara! You make me feel much better today. I was afraid I was too "down in the dumps" yesterday I am hoping that a very deserving soldier will receive the quilt and he may not even notice the flaws.
"Very nice quilt, Riana. I am making some blocks that are very similar to your blocks.
Donna, I really like your African quilt. I am currently working with some beautiful African prints that I acquired from the QOV sew-in sale.
"Hi Zoe, Wonderful quilt! I looked at how you sprinkled the colours throughout and it looks so pleasing!
Barbara, I play a game on the computer that every now and then will have really cute monsters on the tiles. I noticed there is…"
If you downloaded the pattern from her blog, it should be a file on your computer and you can just attach the file to an email. Otherwise, if you scan it to your computer, again it will have a file name and can be attached. I'm not in any hurry to start...so many other things to do and my good machine is in the shop. But thank you so much for helping me out!
The "wood grain" quilting sounds interesting, can't wait to see the whole quilt done.Remember l signed up for the free online longarm class? lt said for best results, use a computor ( instead of tablet etc.) , so l closed it, deciding to use computor later. Now it won't come up.l wonder if there was a time limit.l wish l'd taken it on the tablet, even if not as good as on computor.
Smart idea, about the mug rugs...l would never have thought of fabric gluing...l'd have probably gone to snipping/pulling out the poor handwork , washed & redone w/machine. Not likely a" profitable" use of time:)
