    Jenniky: a project board? How fantastic! That would mean I wouldn't have to carry it around in my head. Oh, but I might get freaked out with all I am committed to and all that I want to do and...

    works4me: am I any closer? No, uh, not yet. I just packaged up a swap commitment and am rushing out the door to get it in the mail. DH suggested I get that done first, before I get to my gardening projects... Smart man, he knows me well. It's only noon, I've got all day, don't I? Hopefully, while I am gathering piles of fabric I have here and there this pm, I will be able to locate that r,w & b. Hopefully. TTFN

    I was getting freaked out by not knowing what I had going... the project board helped me to feel less overwhelmed with my tasks.

    Alrighty Im done drawing. Have a good image where I want to go with this block. I didnt draw in the flowers that I am putting along the ribbon. Those of course will be done using the Muv Method.. I think she needs to patent that name.

    Jenniky, thanks for showing your prep work. I know you said you were a bigger but you are doing things I haven't exactly done so I appreciate the steps you are showing.

    When you said the Muv Method, I began thinking MM, for short I plan to use the MM also.

You also don't have to pay someone to quilt it for you and can say you did the whole thing yourself.

    Ooh, would daughter want to learn SID? Or should that be on a smaller project?

    Me, I'm still stitching binding. Good thing I got the rest of the quilt done earlier as there is no time for anything now. I still plan to be finished this weekend.
    Hi all, back from our 3 day campout with our Camping Group! Great discussions going on here. Jenniky - love your June BOM. I have not even started mine yet!

    I agree with works4me. You can do both SID on your machine and hand quilt the other areas. Or like dublb says - draw some simple designs and either hand stitch or free-motion on the lines. I cannot do FMQ squiggly line quilting at all, but found if I have a simple pattern drawn out on the quilt, I can follow that design with my feed dogs down. Just a suggestion!

    Time to sew in the windows and the background for the engines garage. Then I will prepare the frames for windows and the garage door. Hubby wants to know when I will start the Fire Engine..LOL I drew it while we were at breakfast at IHOP. I told him we had to have a fire house to put it in first.

    I am a Linda-come-lately here, are you hand embroidering on your appliques? If so, how many threads are you using of embroidery floss? I really love the way it looks.
    Here's the MM method.

Here's some pics...

    The fire house is built, a bit of a pucker on the left bottom window. The bunting will help flatten it out when I am ready to put it on. So now I am going to build a Fire Engine today. Wow and Im not even and engineer. Haha

    Dashing out the door very soon, and see there's been some ChattyCathie's while I was working!!!!

    Being that JenniKy is racing along with her 3-P I didn't want to be too late with this suggestion ..... how about making that bunting 3-D? as in, don't just applique it on flat, lay some ribbon/fabric/whatever in place kind of like the real thing, and then tack it down. Love the project

    More later folks ....... when tiem is on my side and I am in the
    ChattyCathie mode myself!!!!!

    Here's to an awesome day for all of you!!!!!
