Happy belated anniversaries to QNS and JAN RN and their DH,s. Hope you all had a good time. QuiltE...Beautiful block! You are such a perfectionist. Glad you're making progress on the PC. Along with QNS and Jeanie. We're going to have some more eye candy soon! Jeanie...your idea about putting pictures of your quilt on your computer during the design phase. Pictures do capture so much. Mirabelle...such a drama queen...what a way to get a car! Love your sense of humor. Beautiful string quilt. You are so disciplined and set such a good example for all of us. Thanks!!! You could make quilts of all of our blocks hands down. Projects just seem to grow don't they? I think I missed something too when Aneal announced she received a block from Quilte. What's up you guys? Granny Q...I would love to have a label. That would be perfect for the BB finishing. Dubib...kicking butt is what happens when we plan beautiful blocks that challenge us but the effort will be appreciated by the recipient. Anael....you could be developing a new business..sewing for the NICU! That takes a lot of patience and love. Beautiful work for beautiful babies. I agree their little dimples and wrinkles are so cute! Thanks for the cake too. Great way to celebrate all over the world! You're so thoughtful. JanRN...recover soon from your trip to Cleveland and let us see what you came home with. OK...hope the bank meeting went well. Something I never enjoyed. Honchey...do you have a special tool to cut all of your squares? That's a lot of cutting! Carrie...I sure the new meds work. Sounds like once the walls are up, you can make the club house happen. What fun you have to look forward too. ME..today I mailed my MB to _______!!!! She'll have to tell you all about it. I also spent some time outside pruning the raspberries and cleaning up the asparagus patch. I'm ready for spring and today was perfect for a little early work. And oh, I almost forgot...here's a picture of the beautiful block from QNS. I thought I could post directly from Photo Stream but can't. I'll be back with it.
Attachment 403566 Thanks for your patience. It had taken me a long time to comment on all of your busyness and couldn't risk timing out. The picture doesn't do it justice. Sorry, QNS!
Main object here, GG, is to please you. IF that is done, then I am happy. Enjoy. My photos do not do justice to fabric or quilt lately. Bugs me.
Who me a drama queen!!! never
I have just finished 1 more block and the side block and the connecting squares, can a girl stop for lunch I need sustanence:)
Oh and DH was informed of the new sewing machine last night when he rang from work, he can't yell at me over the phone:D:D remember, cause I cry:p I then quickly changed the subject and asked him if he had received his new fishing line that one of his work colleagues was ordering for him Sneaky I know
Ok lunch and then back to work..
QNS--very nice MBs!
Ggal--now you have a start on your pineapple quilt. :)
Mirabelle--a little break is always good; food and a little computer time helps too! Now *back to work*.:thumbup:
QNS, Well done. I'm impressed. You did a super job on the pineapple block. Good for you, they look very striking. Did you follow the tute that gardnergal gave us the link for?
What a day I had!!! I sure love comin' here in the virtual RV. Sittin' around & swappin' stories , sharrin' our lives, drinkin' tea or coffee, & who's got the marshmallows????? We've got so much agoin' on! Thanks for the respite.
Happy anniversary's ta Jan & Sue!
Karen is your string quilt a QAYG??? It's just lovely! That yellow just pops!
Anael I love sharin' your twins & those PJ are ta die for! ( I will probably pray for the "Twins" for the rest o' my life. God knows what they need :) )
I really like GG's pineapple. Ya did great QNS!!
I just love hearin' about everybodie's PC quilts goin' tagether. How wonderful!
DH & I spent a lotta time crunchin' #'s taday. Then I took #2 DS ta the eye Dr. After I got home My DSis came over test drivin' a SUV. So DH & I went & helped her make a deal on it. (Well not that one, but one in better shape.) This was DH's Day off. LOL
Well I also worked a bit on my MB. When it was done I realized that I had scorched some o' the starch so I hand-washed it, ever so gentle. It shrank!!!! It is now 12 3/8"!!! I guess I'm gonna put a border on it. I have made this block before & it should have only taken 2 evenin's. Tamarrow it will be day 5!!! I wanted it ta be oh so perfect!! LOL At least I'm learnin' a lot!!:)
Pineapple was done according to the instructions that GG gave to us. Not so good was seeing 50% of what I was supposed to be doing. The first one I posted here, was not quite 12.5 inches square, so I made another one, watching closely to do a ''scan" 1/2 inch...it was better but not as big as it should have been. Hope GG can make them work for her. I also sent extra fabric of each, so she can do some her way, which is probably better than my sincere tries.
Yes, sitting in the virtual RV with pleasant company is very nice to imagine right now.
QNS....your sincere tries are more than enough. I love the block.

Bev it was quilt as you go, I keep all my strings in a box and when it is overflowing I make these blocks. quick and do they do use up a lot of scraps..
Time to cook dinner and if there is no good movie on tv tonight I will finish that last block and then onto the borders tomorrow. That gives me 5 days to finish the quilting, sew the binding on and do the hand sewing...I think I can I think I can I think I can.... I need a cheer squad:D
