    Beautiful job! I vote for red cornerstones. Then red binding to tie it all together in the end.

    A 2nd Jane? Well, I knew that there was no way that I could make 2 at once as I would never finish it that way. I have thought that maybe someday I would make another...something with a more refined layout...like Rachael's, Lesley's or even Klue's R/W/B design. I've just been making my blocks out of whatever I picked up that I like the look of at the time. And I love the look of those gorgeous batiks and Asians..so...maybe someday! My hat is off to all of you making 2 right now!

    I don't know how they are doing it either Patti - one was enough for me. I was really surprised to see my posting of it pop up on 'recent topics' the other day. Someone must have been going back quite a few pages to find it.

    Lesley, your quilt is fantabulous and I canīt wait till you enter it into a show.

    Patti, I agree with you I really do look up to anyone who can do two lots at the same time. No way Jose, as they say.

    Just come back from my sewing day, not too many things this time to show you all. One piece in particular stood out from the rest and I will post later. Its a wall hanging with sashiko and beautiful flowers appliqued on it. Later my friends. I have been sitting with my friends by the beach having a chinese meal and it was very nice indeed. The wine flowed and of course we had a lovely freebie at the end of an Ameretto on Ice.

    Did a few more DJ blocks, I mean got all the side sashings on for 3 rows and started quilting. However there was a lot going on today as its so near the time for our show so it was a lot of talking going on and not much work.

    Thanks...I've just about decided on the beige. Now..have to get busy on blocks so that I can get to the point of putting the "vanilla" corners on that baby!

    Elle...you started quilting????? Geesh! Now you are gonna blow by me!

    I have a question about the kites (yes...I printed them out to take a good look). The question is - are those buggers as hard as they look???? Yikes! And did those of you who have done one or more...did you just cut out a template to trim them??

    Hi everyone, well I did just start quilting DJ at my Tuesday class. I donīt take my sewing machine anymore because the timing gets knocked out so I take something to hand sew, anyways its going in to get fixed) hence DJ has come in handy. Been adding my sashing (just pinned so far) and cutting the batting down so that its just all ready to go eventually. However not done anymore blocks yet so you are way ahead there Patti. So far Row A, B C and D have sashing on and a few quilted.
    Our Clubīs show starts this Friday, so Thursday I am off with the bits I want in it. Unfortunately the one I wanted still hasnīt arrived.

    No, Patti, I didn't think they were harder, just bigger, so took longer. I had started the quilting on the first one, but did a lot more than you can see here.

    This one took the longest - seemed like hundreds of pieces

    This one was the easiest for me, but I had to revise the no. of pieces cos I hadn't realised the scallops were all seperate

    Lesley...those a gorgeous up close and personal like that! I think I need to work on these as I move along..maybe when I hit a group of PP ones, I'll work on some of these by hand at night.

    Your batting is cut 1/2" wider than each block (or block + sashing sewn on the side and bottom) or did you cut larger, quilt, then trim them down before sewing them together?

    Elle...I'm sorry your quilt top for the show hasn't gotten there yet..but maybe it will still make it. I can't wait to see pics of the show...your group is so talented!

    Those blocks all look really amazing. Must have a look at those corner blocks and print them out.

    No luck with the top today as we have a strike of postal workers, hotels, airport. In fact a general strike in protest to all the people being made redundant, canīt see a strike will do any good, but it will make them feel better I am sure.

    So maybe tomorrow I will get word. trouble is I am out early in the morning taking a friend to Nerja and then at 2 pm my riend Maggie and I are off to take all our work to the Centre for the show. So it the postman arrives I wonīt be there to get it. Friday is too late. Never mind just one of those things I suppose. it would have been nice but not the end of the world.

    Sort of yes and no, Patti. I cut the batting larger all round just to be on the safe side initially. Then when it came to sewing the blocks together with my 3/4in sashing, most of it got left (just trimmed a bit) to fill in the space behind the sashing. (I think my original pics of this are on page 214, or near there). The excess on the back of the tris and corners are a bit different, because there was no sashing between those, but with them, most of the excess was hand stitched down between the tris, to make it lay as flat as possible.

    Thanks Lesley..it sounds like its something that I'll have to play with a little bit to get the feel for it. I've never done any QAYG before, so yet another new thing on this quilt for me. I swear...I think every quilter should make one of these..you grow so much in the process! I'm just hoping that I won't be too disappointed in my final result with all my little "boo-boo's and oopsies" along the way.

    Patti, the little surprises all melt away into group perfection! Although I totally get what you are saying, some of my blocks, are, well, d.o.n.e and far cry from what I expected for their finish, but maybe the hardest ones will be our favorites because they taught us a new technique! :lol:

    Those corners are really pretty Lesley!

    Thanks everyone for your good wishes. I went today to help set things up with 2 of my girlfriends. We arrived around 3pm and left around 5pm. There was still a lot to do, but my then the men had arrived and were ready to hang the quilts on the higher rods in the ceiling. You are going to love all the things I am going to show you, there were pieces there that I hadnīt seen at all.

    We have two quilts to raffle and everyone of our group brought cakes so we are going to sell tea/coffee and cake and all the proceeds from the raffle will go to the local childrens orphange, so hopefully we will do really well for them. I have a 9.30 till 1.30 stint tomorrow, so I will wander round and take photos for you all. Hopefully will get them posted before I go away on holiday.

    Looking forward to it.
