    we are obviously leaving you with too much time on your hands. :lol:

    maybe i should make up a special rule, just for you: Toni has to make 3 of every BOM: (1) for Toni to Keep; (2) for Toni to send for Me to Keep; (3) for Toni to send to me for a quilt to give to somebody else. i might never need to sew another stitch. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    hi Toni well it's my turn to do the next bom. I'll give you a little hint, you will need five different colors for this bom. You'll have fun making it, i promise it will be fun. I've decided to make it into a full size quilt. I really like this pattern. I'm suffering with a real nasty cold and think i also have the flu. But i will have the bom done for the 15th. I am doing some other quilts at the moment one is the marjen for error quilt, which i'm taking online, oh my goodness i'm so far behind. So hopefully i'll feel better within the next few days so i can get caught up with all my ufo's. I still have to finish my sunbonnet sue to, its started, need more buckleys :lol: . Happy sewing everyone, Denise.

    LOL... funny Patrice. That is the bad part I get so anxious then when I see the block I go ughhh and complain.... just like a woman aren't I....lol.

    Loretta it probably would help if I had other ufo's but that is the bad part about me too. I can't have a bunch of projects half done. I have the need to finish one complete before going to another. Kind of wish I wasn't like that. I am waiting to finish my son's but won't start the next till I get the stuff to finish his. Maybe it is because I am still a newbie! Hopefully once I become a more experienced quilter I will be able to get over my phobia of ufo's...lol

    And Denise, how unfair to tease me about the next block....lol.

    Toni, I don't like UFO's either. I had to stop in the middle of a project to work on a charity quilt and I'm a nervous wreck. I don't like to start something new until what I'm working on is finished. I think it's because my friend who got me started quilting was the queen of UFO's . She had a quilt in her frame she'd been working on for her daughter for a couple of years, but was always busy quilting on something else too. She died with her daughter's quilt still in the frame. I'd rather finish one project and get it to the person it's intended for than have 15 in progress. But that's just me.

    Poor Sue has sure taken a beating this month! I'm glad you can look back on Sue now and say it was a learning experience. It all is, even if the learning was, "I don't like Sue!" You now know for sure!

    I started quilting with the idea of finishing each project in turn but something went beeezerk and I have so many projects now I had to put a stop on everything until I can complete at least half of what's hanging over my head! I just couldn't stand the pressure any more. :lol:

    Denise, your new block sounds like fun already! I can hardly wait but I'd better go wind up a few things so I can come back and play with you all.

    I feel so inadequate. I only have 8 quilts in progress. But... the lap quilt is almost done, the YBR is pinned and ready to quilt, the Homeward Bound' top is a couple of hours from being complete, Amelia's quilt is about 1/3 done, all the fabric for my SW medallion quilt is bought, washed, and pressed, my one block a week paper piecing project (128 pieces per block) is now 6 weeks behind but all the fabric is bought, washed, and pressed, the Latilla quilt has all the material pressed and waiting to be cut, and only Eye Dazzler is in some sort of limbo because still every time I take it out and do another block, I realize how far in over my head I have gotten.

    But I do like looking at everyones BotMs.
