    Dublb--I still like your fabrics and blocks. Especially the potholder block...I will have to see if I can find that pattern in a 8 1/2" block and maybe use it for one of my substitutes.

    Today I got binding cut for dd's quilt and my quilt top ironed so I can add the border tomorrow...maybe even get to sandwich and start quilting. It was chilly here today so hard to get motivated. It didn't help that errands in town took longer than expected.
    Hey Carrie, here's a block I created in EQ. What do you think?

    I made good progress today...got the border on and quilting done on a simple lap quilt...just have to do the binding. Also my dd got her binding sewing on today and did paperwork for 4-H to take the quilt to Fair. She hopes to get the binding sewn down early next week. Here is a picture of her and her quilt right after she got the quilting done (I know it isn't finished yet, but thought everyone would appreciate her excitement.)
    Oh man is she happy! That feelin' is why we quilt!

    I did manage to finish this top from a UFO pile.

    Awesome! Beautiful colors & contrast. How small are those squares?

I've got the blocks sewn together and today I cut the sashings. Here is a peek at the proposed layout I'm heading towards.Attachment 339312
    That's gonna be lovely. I just love kaleidoscopes! I hope your fibro gets better. My DD suffers from it.

    Great dublb! This one finishes at 8 inches just perfect for our PC blocks. A block for mirabelle don't you think?

    Carrie, she is so excited. I love to see pics like this one.
    This is the reason to pass on our love of quilting.....to see this enjoyment.

    Nice work.
    This one is kinda different with the layout.....the center area and the stars outside.
    Unusual color combos too........I like it!
    Great finish.

    Linda (WY), looks like it will be a beautiful finish.
    This pattern is on my LONG 'want-to-try' list.

    Hope your fibro eases soon.

    Dublb, the squares finish at 2". I used a jelly roll from Kansas Troubles collection.
    Ranger, The layout is different because I started the center and put it aside then used the rest of the jelly roll for the stars. Then my engineer son had to help me figure out how to combine them. I think he did a good job. As they say necessity is the mother of invention.
    Thanks
    Every day's a blessing.
