    Delighted to see early posting so I can now go help get our fowl babies to bed...trouble with the posting and do not know what all happened there but the blocks are posted.

    Might be my fault; I have been typing in book records this afternoon; got 2/3s done with 137 records in the computer and my eye is tired. Hope to finish tomorrow morning and get them gifted to our county public library and out of my house. DD is coming for a visit,(Sept 8th) so its clean up time and do the 'extra' little details to clear the areas and clean deep. She will find a fault or two but that seems to make her happy. Company coming in Thursday, I think, until Monday, Labor Day...but we think alike and love quilting, so that is going to be a fun time. Looking forward to seeing everyone's blocks.

    QNS, if DD doesn't know what her house looks like by now..... But I know what you mean--I have to at least get the clutter under control and floors mopped if I know kids are coming!!
    No blocks this week, but as noted earlier I have the 3 AAQI quilts registered. These two will be delivered tomorrow for thee local hospital quilt auction. I am also working on a couple of minis and Christmas ornaments for the GK's school fundraiser in September.

    I don't have kids old enough to come home and complain about the house not being quite right...if they ever said something while still living at home, I would put them to work since more than likely the mess was theirs to begin with!! LOL

    As usual it sounds like we are all busy...good thing quilting is important to us or it would be pushed to the wayside. I have people say "how do you get so much done"...well, my thinking is if you want to do it you will make time for it.

    I am still working to finish a couple UFOs and then will be back to PC blocks more regularly. Crystal and I are getting together next Tuesday to cut more fabrics and less than 2 weeks to our retreat where *hopefully* we will get LOTS of blocks done!! We are so excited.

    I just have borders and binding to finish on the D9P w/a Twist and then will be working on a quilt to donate to the local hospice house. I had a friend who was there and died of cancer last November the same weekend I was at a retreat. Well the day after she died I went to a quilt shop and bought fabric. I didn't know what to do with it, but have found a pattern.

    I called the hospice house and they said they could really use some new quilts as theirs are getting a little worn. So...that is what I decided to do. I might even have enough fabric for 2 quilts. I will be contacting my friend's mom today (whom I got to know during Jeanne's illness). Another friend suggested asking her if she would be interested in doing the quilting on it (she has a longarm).

    Hope all have a productive week!

    You are so right Carriem, if you want to do something you will make the time to do it. How thoughtful of you to make quilts for the hospice, it is such a wonderful way to honour your friends memory.

    I have spent the day cutting DD's quilt to take to retreat, I have to cut 840 1/2 square triangles, 370 down just 470 to go. Then I have to cut the same amount for the background fabric. Silly me, then I have to cut mine. We are going to be making the same quilt just in different colourways. The things us Mums do...she did gift me all her purples to use in my quilt. It is a Bonnie Hunter pattern so lots of little pieces, just the way I like it.

    Oh yes, mirabelle, Bonnie Hunter is my favorite too. Can't wait till November when her next Mystery Quilt will begin, I've done her last two. She is also doing a Mystery for Quiltmaker Magazine that will be in the Spring - over three editions, I believe from what she said on her blog.

    I've heard so many mentions of Bonnie Hunter. Does she have a website?

    See mirabelle's link above. She has tons of free patterns on her site too. Also check out the Scrap User System. Beware - she likes little pieces in her quilts! LOL She also has a Yahoo group, and blog.

    Thanks, Jeanie. I've already found some very good ideas. I've sort of started to cut strips but this will take me to the next level. I agree with her that scraps are as expensive as the original yardage and that's why I've been so reluctant to give them away like some do.
