    OOOO! I love them all. Such pretty colors. I took tomorrow off of work because I can. I am hoping to get caught up on some things. My DH is trying to make plans for us for tomorrow and I would love to just hide in my sewing room all day. I am taking my dad to the doctor at 4:00 but I have nothing the rest of the day. My baby quilt is ready to quilt. At first I wasn't sure I liked it but now that I have it together I love it. It isn't my usual choice of fabric type. I am going today to find some binding for it. I have decided how to quilt the borders and one of the blocks but can't decide how to quilt the other block. That is one of the reasons I have trouble with FMQ. I can never decide how to quilt things. THe t- shirt needs a border and it is finished and ready to quilt. I am still undecided if I want to quilt it. I guess I need to talk price with my customer. I hope to get at least one star finished tomorrow. I also need to make at least one block for quilt guild. Then I can get back to what I want to do. Everyone keep up the beautiful work. I can't wait to see them all completed. I am looking forward to getting caught up.

    I just got my book and I am planning on starting on my blocks soon. But I was curious what size blocks everyone was making?

    Hooked...I believe all the block patterns are for 12.5 unfinished blocks if you copy them from the book. If you want different sizes, you'll have to change them when you make your copies.

    Everyone's is looking great so far! Still nothing sewn for me this past week but we did get the front room pretty much rearranged so the long arm can be set up next Saturday...wooo hooo... Also figured out (wasn't too hard to figure out actually) I am soooo out of shape and carrying furniture around and out is hard work. Today is going to be spent with my feet up I'm afraid after I go undecorate my office from Easter (boss kind of dropped hints it was "over", lol).

    Hello everyone. Love everyone's blocks, especially Sue z q's Hawaii. The lizards are too cute! I finished another 6 blocks this week & am heading toward the finish! Also playing & planning the additional 6 blocks I need to end up with 56 blocks. The first Texas block I did was UGLY, UGLY so I redid it with colors that remind me of Texas & now I'm happy with it! Texas was also a little more challenging that the other blocks this week for some reason.

    Thank you, Florence, and your's, as usual is magnificent.

    Thought I would share my collection for the lap quilt. Since I am not doing all 50 blocks, I don't have all the blocks that some of you do. But I am pleased with the way it is coming along. At the end, I am may decide to redo some of the more dull colored blocks.

    Suezq, love those geckos in your Hawaii. I always associate them with the Islands too.
    MonaLisa & PokerDiva, These bigger points are letting us showcase some prints.
    Paintmejudy, your star makes me think 'Bayou.' Great collection too.
    Patricia Faye, Seeing the blocks that are ahead is inspiring.

    Boy, Louisianna has a lot of great music, but there was only one song for me. The trouble is, which version. So I finally gave up and am listing four versions. For me, Creedence Clearwater Revival was the introduction to the song, but the spirit in a couple of the others was too much to ignore. If these don't get your sewing foot tapping, I don't know what will.
