    So you see, then, it will be a little while until I can sew again
    You all scare me with your beautiful, intricate blocks! Every single one of them is a work of art. Hex Nut, those tiny hexes are amazing. I don't know how I'll ever get caught up to you.

    QuiltnNan, your quilting studio looks very similar to mine. I have so many projects stacked in plastic containers plus boxes of leftover fabric from previous quilts. I have 2 closets, 6 drawers, a tool cabinet for all my handiwork tools, plus 4 filing cabinets and a set of baskets from a closet organizer. I still don't have enough room. I'm going to have to live a long, long time to make a dent in it. Good luck with your move and I pray that you are organized real soon.

    Quilt Nan, good to see you back, and hope that you can get settled in soon. It is a process, but so well worth the time and effort. Look forward to your blocks when you are able to post again.

    Here's my Week 17. Still behind, but still plugging away! Both C-4's are a little wonky -- they are what they are!

    Katybob, your blocks look great. You're way ahead of me. I'm just starting week 10 and my sewing machine is on the whack again.

    Katybob LOVE the floral C-8!
    QuiltnNan - I'm sure you'll get it all set up soon, and it will be great.

    I'm out of commission for a couple of weeks. Had to clear off the dining room table because I'm having company next week. So I won't be posting blocks for a couple of weeks, but am loving everyone else's! I'll get even further behind.

    wow ladies!! it's been a few days since I've visited - knee is killing me!!! went to my ortho surgeon Thursday and he said he didnt think surgery would help @ first - wanted to give me some sort of injection. When I explained the intensity of the pain, he said he had a colleague who does a partial knee replacement! Really??? no in between - my cartilage is torn a little and flipflops around in the joint - clean it out! ....maybe not him. He obtained his MD before I entered kindergarten and you may remember I just turned 60. He may be afraid of doing surgery... so I made an appt for second opinion [dont want him touching me with a knife anyway]

    Looking forward to an 'official break' - I've been on an unofficial one for a while now - hope all is well with the rest of you

    Well, I am finally back with a few more blocks, but then I have to let this quilt sit on the back burner for awhile. Summer, work, and yard work are all getting in the way of my sewing, but I will keep plugging along. 2 of the blocks are for the week of May 20.
    The first is C-13, and I didn't measure as well as I should have on each unit, so when I add the sashing, I know that I am going to lose the points, but, oh well, I will not remake it. My bad.

    This one is C-11 and I just did this one in 2 pieces. The background piece and then cut the white piece as one unit and appliqued it on.

    And then I skipped ahead 2 weeks and did block C-7, which has to be the hardest one to date, for doing the quilting with all the tiny diamonds. I wanted to get the first 3 rows put together, to show family at our reunion in a few weeks. Since I am behind anyway, I don't think the quilt police will come after me. lol

    Also, I want to work with some of the top row triangles, to see if I can actually get them to go together right, before I make any more of them. I don't have the tri template, so this could be a challenge. I will let you know how it goes.
    Keep up the good work, everyone. I never get tired of looking at all the great blocks that are being posted.

    Hi Gus, nice to see you here and I am sorry to hear about your knee! I have suffered "knee pain" - even going up and down stairs -especially down, is such effort. I had surgery to "clean" it out and it did help - MUST do the exercises they give you post op to do though!

    All the blocks are looking great - All these wonderful babies will look wonderful when finished.

    Gus, so sorry you're having knee trouble. It certainly puts a damper on life and quilting.

    Spartan Quilter - love your colors and the sparkly thread. I'm going to loose some points, too, but like you I am not remaking. Once all the blocks are together there will be so many it won't be noticeable. I especially love the 2 colors you put in C-13.

    I'm in quilt withdrawal with all my things packed away waiting for visitors. But even my 16 yr old teenage son said it looks nice cleaned up, so . . . LOL.

    Gus, sorry about your knee. I hope the next doc has better news for you.
    Spartan - looking great. I love the way you did c-11. You might be able to use a printed out tri template... maybe print it on paper and attach some layers of freezer paper?

    Spartan Quilter - I love your blocks. Great colors.
    Gus, I will pray for your knees. I had terrible knee pain 30 years ago and I could barely walk. I prayed and my knees were healed. I am now 74 years old and have never had knee trouble since. Praise God.

    Well after 6 months of lurking here I have finally cut out my first block. I had intended to start with you guys but you know how that goes.My jaw just drops every time I come to this site at all of the beautiful work here. I am just amazed. I am starting with a group at my LQS. They are planning on doing 2 blocks a month. At that pace I think it is a 10 year project. I am hoping to work with them for a while and also try to start where you guys are and keep up. I will post when I get one block done. Keep up the good work.

    Hi meanmom, that was my moniker for years when I had 3 girls in their teens. "You're so mean, you won't let us do anything." Was repeated so often. Thirty years later I have 3 very sweet and wonderful daughters who have blessed me with 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. It pays off in the long run. Welcome to our group and I know you will enjoy this quilt and this group.

    Have two daughters (adults) and both had recent knee surgery...both had some cartilege(sp) removed...apparently it was torn and was sort of flapping around and when it hit a spot it wasn't supposed to be in....extreme pain....now both are fine...no pain. Surgery was done at one of those in/out Surgery Centers.........Good Luck......

    Awesome blocks!! Well, Spartan - I should've used your method of doing C7 - that is, I think you did it the way I was planning to... did you applique the 8 diamonds that go around the border?? I am in the process of "setting them in" [piecing] OMG a pain.... and I already have enough in the knee!! Oh ladies, I just noticed how far behind I actually am boy am I glad next week is catch-up! [although I dont know exactly how much I can accomplish...] I am more comfortable doing handwork at the moment & finished D4 and now trying to finish C7. [then I should get to ahem.... RS1, C10 &13, and D1,2,5 and 13] only 7 blocks to catch up - your leader is definitely not 'fearless.'

    have a great 'sewing' or fun day!

    Gus--yes, I did those diamonds by applique. I looked at all the clues about setting them in, and just did not want to go there. That was the block that really put me behind, and other projects, of course. But I will catch up again, SOME DAY!!!
