    Anael have you been peeking in my window, I have just finished the Bargello, had to remove a ton of lint, but here it is. I would never undertake another one like this and certainly not in the time frame I set myself Supposed to drop it off at the longarmer on Thursday but will ring her and see if I can drop it off tomorrow.

    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Mirabelle, that's stunning ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Dublb, I love your little quilts! The crumbs can be a pain in the *ss. When I had to quilt mine I only did SID because of all the seams.

    All rows are sewn, all sashing stripes too. It's going to be huge !!!! And I'm planning on quilting it myself. I have no idea how though. I thought about each block different but when I see the size of it I think meandering is the easiest way to tackle it.

    Another thing I've learned: be as accurate as possible. Better a bit too short, it's hard to fit in a block that's too large
    3 rows to go!

    Wow, how productive all of you are!! Mirabelle, I had faith in you finishing that quilt that is so awe inspiring every time anyone looks at it...another success story! So comforting to your DD, to show your love for her, and that you will be there for her, to raise her spirits, too!

    Dublb, beautiful doll quilt. Now please, take a picture of your latest MB from me to show the group, and with the whole family of MBs...(I really worked very hard to make it right, my feelings are hurt a bit that you have not) Sorry, that is the way I feel.

    Everyone have a good day.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words, as I was looking at the pic one square screamed at me, oh my gosh one square was out of place so had to fix it. When DD saw the pic she just said have you fixed it yet. Can anyone see where the misplaced square is ????????

    Thank you all for the compliments on my little DJ block. Glad I started with an easy y-seam, maybe the next won't seem so intimidating. Next challenge: an applique block, again an easier one with only 2 pieces to applique. Pretty sure I'm not going to do the applique blocks, not something I enjoy doing. I know I sound like a spoiled brat but I'm old now and if I don't enjoy doing something, I don't do it L)L.

    QNS, if I lived with you I'd weigh 300 pounds!! Everything looks so yummy--I'd need a plate the size of a serving tray so I could have some of everything. Mmmmm....

    Bev, I've never done a crumb quilt--that is so bright and cheery. Do you applique the black strips on after you make the block? Great job, can't imagine quilting through all those seams.

    Mirab-what can I say? I'm speechless! That is the most beautiful bargello I've seen. I love the color combo and the arrangement. WOW!! And it looks so nice in that bedroom, are you sure DD is going to receive it?

    Anael, great progress on Sylvia. Now, the quilting. Again, probably lots of seams like FWS & PC--not going to be easy but I know you can do it. And yes, I've used the trick of adding a border around too small blocks; I agree too small is better than too big. If you trim a large block you loose all your points. Can't wait to see Sylvia finished.

    We got about 6-7" of snow yesterday then freezing rain overnight. It's only 22* so everything is frozen solid--can't walk on sidewalks, my road is like a skating rink. Looks like a good day to stay in and finish Rosie--only 2 more blocks and the border to quilt, then binding. I see the finish line!!!

    Have a great day--stay warm and do something you love!
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    Bev I missed your Doll Quilt, that is beautiful, I made an Asterisk quilt but not out of crumbs, my brain hasn't reached that level yet DH would know I had lost my mind if I started working with tiny bits

    Mirabelle, I saw the misplaced square but only when you mentioned it being there

    I have just one more row to attach but first it's twins time So I'm off and will finish Sylvia tonight!
    Oh no Jan, Rosie again ! ! ! ! ! Don't remind me that often, please
