    Wow I go to sleep and the chatter comes thick and fast.....

    Honchey I love your blocks, I am doing something similar, mine will be put together in a design that appeared in the new Quilting Quickly magazine. It is a Jenny Dorn design from Missouri Quilt Co. There is probably a you-tube video of it.

    Anael, what beautiful photos I just want to give them a big hug and I love your embroidered sheets, you will certainly be kept busy with all that beautiful flannel you received.

    QuiltE, no BB's for me yet I am happy for everyone to reveal their little treasures, the race is on but I am sure your postie will deliver before mine Sorry I don't have any animal patterns...

    What a wonderful group you are to have organised and sent those beautiful flannels to Anael, give yourselves a star.

    QNS I hope you stay safe during the storm and don't get too much snow.

    Dublb love your block and that nautical fabric is fabulous

    I prefer the 505 spray glue and over here it is $16 a can, oops heard a few of you falling off your chairs I use it very very sparingly.

    At this stage I think I will be making the 6 inch blocks but in my colourway, should be interesting to see how we put these quilts together.

    I certainly have been missing my "little" blocks so decided to start another leader and ender project, these are 4 inch stars. I have made 18 so far, but need a couple of hundred This is the end of my fabric chain, if I can't get the units for a star it is in the bin.

    Have a wonderful day, I am going to start quilting Daughters Card Tricks quilt today, so definitely putting the aircon on early

    They're here! They're here!! They're here!!!

    Though you probably already knew that .... after hearing me scream while I was at the post office this afternoon. OK I'll fess, I did a silent scream while in the building, but yes, there was a shriek of delight when I got to my truck!!

    On my way thru the snow and blow and slippery roads, including a detour thanks to my road being closed right now, I was thinking ... they'd better be there!! And they were!

    I couldn't wait to get home and open them up. CarrieM had them sealed all too well for me to rip into them in the truck.

    Oooooooooooohhhh they're so beautiful.
    You Ladies, really did out-do yourselves and I can't believe how well they all go together, without any collusion. And yes, as I was doing the first look thru and petting every one, the tears welled in my eyes!

    I am SO excited and can't wait to decide what to do with them ... I keep saying, no action, til I get all my PC blocks done!!

    I know that I am blessed with such wonderful friends. THANK YOU, ONE AND ALL!!!!!

    Now ......... off to read all the posts since I was last here!

    DublB ... you've got a great new block and some nice new fabrics to work with.

    Anael
    ... Such good news about our SewGrands!

    QNSue ... you are such a wonderful person with a ♥ of gold! Thanks for getting the muslin for me. I'll then hgave it for comparison should I find it here. Noah's Ark ... really? **happy dance**

    MiraB ... for you that your BBs have not arrived. I was sure you would have them now, as I know yours arrived to Carrie within the week. Maybe tomorrow? As CarrieM hinted earlier ... yours is SO MiraB! BTW 505 is about the same price here too. OMG that is going to make for a beautiful quilt!

    I so move ... that we keep to our agreement ... no BBs be posted till all are received.
    Do I have a seconder?

    I have just finished catching up on e-mails (should have been in the sewing room by now) and guess what !!! Quilting on the Square has released 6 bonus Compass Blocks. They are free and I have just finished downloading them to my computer. Wow they look great too. On other Quilting on the Square news they are releasing a new free BOM on March 1st so we had better check out that one too. A girl can't have too many projects lined up
    Now I just heard my postied so will be right back no just my annual eye check up reminder.. Well tomorrow is another day or my parcel delivery man is running late as he is normally here before 8 in the morning

    This is what is on my design wall, I remember posting a pic of my embroidered butterflies, well I made 21 and spent a whole day cutting fabric and putting it up on the wall only to sit back and go yuck I hate it...So this is actually the second layout. I have run out of the background fabric so had to order more ( and cause I always like to fill a post bag had to order more yummy fabric). I would like to have it finished by the end of March for my DD's 30th birthday. Gee I am feeling old, when did my baby grow up

    Mirabelle - that is beautiful, I know your DD will just love it (who wouldn't)!!!

    Congrats on getting the BB QuiltE - they are just spectacular! Hopefully Mirabelle will get hers tomorrow!

    Isn't it just so wonderful how "things" move us to tears (the SewGrands and seeing the work everyone did on the BB)!

    MiraB .... such a beauty in the making. Your scrappy Irish Chains are perfect with the butterflies.

    Now MrPostman ... bring MiraB her BBs ........ and her background fabric.



    BTW ... I struck it lucky today ... look at what else arrived in the mail ...............

    No you Silly Bunnies ... not the amaryllis (seven blooms!) but a whole tray of Aurifil thread, mostly variegateds!

    Another chatty day for you ladies

    Dublb--I like your new block and what great nautical fabrics.

    QNS--you have a great stash and it is so nice of you to share so generously with everyone!!!

    Mirabelle--pretty 4" blocks, but I really like the butterfly quilt!

    QE--thanks for sharing pictures of your flowers...oh and the thread too.

    I was able to finish quilting the blocks on my PC quilt today. I will start borders tomorrow. If we get the "big snow" Thursday afternoon/evening I'll just *have to* stay home and keep sewing. "They" keep changing numbers right now it is 5-7", so we shall see how much we actually get.

    I have been busy today doing "retreat" prep stuff...we do a secret sister exchange, so I had to collect those, draw numbers and then send out names/info to the right people. It is one of those jobs that seems easy at first, but then you have to keep checking especially when sending in emails and not printing out...it would be bad to send the same person to two different people and end up with someone not getting any gifts! I would feel awful!! Getting food/menus in order, etc, etc. Glad to have the gifts almost done. Always nice to check something else off the list....

    They're the smaller size spools, ordered from Tristan in British Columbia.
    It was a treat to myself ... one of those from me to me gifts ... appropriately on Valentine's Day!

    I like variegateds in quilting and have had such a hard time getting colours when I want them. So when I saw the tray on sale, I phoned and inquired as I could see the variegateds and wondered how many? They said they would put together a tray for me of mostly variegateds and emailed a pic for approval. I was more than pleased!!

    I know they ship international ... and from what I've seen on the QB, still reasonable for you to consider, MiraB.
    I also got six of the large size spools in a basic beige for piecing ... less than half what I pay locally (including shipping)!
    http://www.tristan.bc.ca/news.html

    BTW I have ordered from them before and their customer service has been above par! So I am sure they will take very good care of you.


    CarrieM ... You and Honchey will be able to share "war stories" of doing lucky draws all by yourself and emailing the results! Should we all do a "snow dance" so you can batten the hatches and "force" yourself to snow all day?
