    Love the duck pictures and scenery, DD. No, I do not know what kind of ducks they are; must look that up.

    Anael, wonderful news the Sew Grands are coming home for the weekend!!

    QuiltE, your lilacs are wonderful, I can smell them in the picture!!

    Picked up the E. machine after lesson, and table for the 1530 Bernina I have now. The table the for E. machine will come the first weekend in June when we go back for another lesson...dh will take that lesson, but I will be there too.
    We will unload in the morning, I am tooooo tired to do it tonight. Everything will be refreshed in the morning including us. New machines will challenge me for whole summer; to set the room and learn how to use them to their fullest potential.

    Relayed info about QB and our group to the quilt shop and to a good eatery waitress where we lunched late...it was almost two then. And we stopped at the nursery again for a 'few' more plants. Everyone have a good evening.

Size:  261.2 KB I finally put the binding on my Utopia quilt that has been waiting for it for about 4 weeks. I'll hand sew it tonight while watching TV. I did pull out the Easy Street Blocks and began sewing them together. I'm hoping to have it completed and ready for a flea market a local store is going to. Very productive day.
    DD...what scenery!!...and wonderful memories for your little ones.
    ANAEL.....What a happy Day!!!! What a long way those little ones have come. Will be praying for you all and the bumps that will inevitably rear their heads.

    QNSue ... you are brave with the need to learn both machines at the same time! Good that you are getting your DH to go for the next lesson too. Maybe they would let you use their store machine, so you can actively participate at the next class too? Before long, you will have both machines mastered!! Now have a good rest tonight and be ready to get all organized tomorrow.

    GGal and CarrieM ... looks like a perfectly pointed block and such a nice mix of fabrics. CarrieM, did you PP it?

    GGal
    ... Look at all those adorable Lil Sams! How cute with the bandana ♥s! You have me curious as to what your Utopia quilt is?

    Take care all!

    You are all so sweet!! Thank you bunches for the welcome back.

    To Anael--I'm so happy that the babies get to come home for the weekend.

    To QuiltE--We have lilacs, too. The fragrance when I hang my laundry on the line is wonderful. I just wish they lasted all summer!

    JanRN--I would Love to see the completed quilts. Can you tell me where I can find them? Are they all together, or scattered about?

    MercysLand ... I'm SO with you ... lilacs all summer and all the other flowering bushes too! That'd be one way to encourage one to do laundry!!! I really miss having a clothes line, though every time I get all mopey about it, I give myself a shake as to the realityt ... living on the edge of the bush + birds + clothesline ... just wouldn't work!!!!!! It's rained off and on, all day, so having the lilacs indoors have been a nice bonus!!! Re the completed PC quilts, they are scattered here and there throughout this thread as each person finished theirs! My flimsy is at #2570.

    Anael--re: labels- I have never put a label on a quilt or runner to this point. The only time I've signed something I've made is the BBs I sent to most of you for the swap. I have had people tell me I *should* label them, but haven't. Now that I have my new machine (Janome 6600) I have a couple simple alphabets so might start putting my name and date on the backs of the quilts I make.

    D_D--those are some great pictures. Looks like the kids are all having a good time.

    Ggal--SS turned out very cute. I am sorry my pineapple strips are narrower than the 1" as originally planned! I got a little carried away when squaring up each time and didn't realize what I was doing until I had several rounds on. Next time I make that block I will know better how to measure or cut the strips wider than the 1 1/2" so I have more room to play and keep it looking straight/square.

    QE--no, I did not pp, just did two opposite sides, cut off excess, and then added the next two sides and did the same. Tried to follow the original link for pineapple instructions...

    Way past my bedtime tonight. DH is off work tomorrow so everything gets done later. I got backing for the airplane quilt today. Yesterday I got backing, borders and binding cut for the LC. I have to cut batting and then will start quilting tomorrow. Airplane quilt is about ready for quilting too...just have to cut backing and batting for it. Tomorrow is a home day so unless DH comes up with places to go I *should* be able to make some good quilting progress.

    Wow I have only been gone for a day and it takes me an hour to catch up on the chatter

    Another beautiful MB
    Glorious scenery and ducks

    As for marking quilts I use the Frixion pens that when pressed disappear. I have heard negatives and positives about these pen and I have had no problems with them, for dark fabrics I use a white chalk liner NOT the blue one. I marked a cream quilt top with blue chalk and I had to hand wash it out, boy was I panicking as it was not my quilt

    The only advice I can give you about what design to use on a quilt top QuiltE is what I was told many years ago, if the background fabric is busy, keep the design simple as you are not going to see any fancy quilting. If it is a solid or light background I generally try and use a slightly darker thread which will show your design. When reading (studying) quilt magazines, books etc I always like to see the quilt design they have used on their quilts. Oh I wish I lived closer

    Anael what wonderful news I am jumping for joy that the twins are getting a weekend pass. Meet you all in the RV tomorrow for a celebration

    Mercysland maybe we could organise something so you can see our beautiful quilts, like your own personal quilt show

    This is the wall hanging I made. The design is called Modern Celtic and is from Quilter's World Summer 2013.
    The second picture is a close up of the FMQ.

    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    Perhaps we could 'republish' our photos of the our Pony Club quilts here again? Just so Mercysland could see them together without having to hop all over??

    Anael, you have used yours for very special persons and haven shown us photos.

    Mirabelle, yours looked so great; we all have hopes that you will take 'best of show' in all your events there.

    QuiltE, has won ribbons with her FWSQ, and PC is also a winner in my eyes.

    Others have had family priorities and are still working on them, doing a great job. Mine is a work in progress, although I have the top pieced, and borders cut, it is not quilted yet. I think JeanieG and JanRN have their PC together; please assist me, everyone, on your status...for Mercysland. Thank you. All of you have encouraged me with your progress and in my eyes, your PC quilts are the best!!
