    Thanks Debbie, if I can do it, you can. there were times when I thought I never would. Never underestamate what a huge task this quilt is, but you are going to feel that you have climbed Everest when its done. So go girls go.

    After that posting of a link that had a quilt with a light background...didn't tickle me too much. I dont' know, I'm so confused! :? Elle's fabs are sooo pretty. The creams with reds and pinks seemed so right for me, it is probably what I will do. Thank goodness I don't need to decide today! :D

    Meredith..Elle's yellow is much more vibrant than the lighter background on the link that was provided. I really think that the yellow she is using will look fabulous. Maybe she'll do a "mock up" block for us...LOL!! :wink:

    I'm soosoooooooo excited!!! I have to show ya'll what I did today. I finally got really brave and just started on my quilting plan for my trapunto tris on my border. I've never done any pebbling before, but its fun! Time consuming and thread eating, but fun! I'm a little over half way done with one side. I sewed for about 2 1/2- 3 hrs. on it today..so slow...but whadda ya' think??

    The white is still chalk/water soluable thread..it will go away

    WOW! Looks super! That really makes your design stand out, soesn't it?

    I need to do more pebbling as my stones don't look all that round - more like a chisel hit them.

    Go Jan, I know its lonely but just check in once in a while. I had to stop sewing because my back ached so much from sitting there bent over it, so Ihave to get up and walk around. Row H is fabulous only 5 more to go. You will catch me up i no time at all.

    Patti, Explain me please I am dumb. Why are you using water soluble thread, where? surely when you wash it the thread will disolve and then what. I know theres a purpose here but I am defeated on this one.... doh !!

    By the way Patti, I love, love what you have done its stunning

    hehe :) yep funny isn't it -- I did it once and should do it again! you do "faux" trapunto by stitching an extra layer of batting to what you want to puff with water soluble thread and then cut off the part of the batting only from the area you dont want to puff. then you make your quilt sandwich by adding reg batting and back and go ahead and quilt - AFTER changing to normal thread. When you wash your quilt the "basting" washable thread comes out! It really is super!! [so long as you remember NOT to use the washable thread anywhere in your machine for your permanent quilting....that is a bummer because it too washes out :roll: :oops: ]

    Anyway, here are the pictures from the first 4 weeks..haven't straightened them up as yet.....will get to that I'm sure :)

    Well Elle, there is your answer! You aren't dumb either...you've just never done it and I haven't yet done that trapunto tute you requested..:oops: And thanks for the compliment. I finished 1 side this morning. Its going a bit faster now, only about 20 minutes or so for each tri.

    YES..do join in you'll find it very rewarding. Once you start I'm sure you will quickly catch up, even if you don't it's not a problem you just need to work at your own pace. Life happens and sometimes we just don't get time to do all the sewing we would like.
    I have only just finished wk 5 blocks which I will take a pic of and post in the appropriate wk from 2010 this afternoon.
