    How's that Razzle Dazzle doin' for you? I wish I had done some other method, but since I have 16 blocks done, I'm not doing them over. Still considering one larger & in Christmas colors. I've got plenty of batiks!

    Patti I love those Autumnal colours you are using, this is going to be so beautiful.

    Lesley you are far too clever, what a great idea to do the block that way

    I saw this block posted somewhere else and I linked to your name to make sure that I had the right person. It is beautiful. I love the colors that you choose. Also a hearty Thank You for the work that you do with inmates. I've had family members in the big house who needed structure and people like you contribute to making them productive people of society again.

    Kathy, the Razzle Dazzle is hard to sew with by hand. I found the best way for me to handle it is to use a "crewel" needle (to make a sizeable hole for it to flow through) and my hands are so rough that I have to wear a latex glove. I have to cut it in fairly short lengths...about 12". There will be a lot of waste this way...but heck...it looks soooo great when its done. Almost like a braided rope. I sure hope it washes well though! Yikes!

    I had a productive evening last night and finished the embroidery on both my block 10 and 11. This block 11 is the same one I posted on the cybersew thread with the variegated thread. I decided I didn't think I would like the variegated throughout the whole quilt so decided to go with dark red embroidery floss throughout, so removed the variegated thread and redid it with the red. I like it a lot better, even with my orange flowers.

    Nice blocks Patti and Judy - as for colours 'going' together, I really think anything goes with this quilt. Aie has used what I would have thought really odd colours beside one another, but now I am managing to lose some of my inhibitions! (Well, quiltwise, LOL).

    Cheryl,

    Thank you for the nice words about my job. I really hope that I am making a difference in their lives. I love what I do and going to work isn't hard for me to do - even though getting up at 5:00 am is :-) especially since I hae been up for the last week till late in the evening watching the Mare Stare waiting for a filly to be born. She came last night at 11:00 Ohio time, but we all stayed on talking & watching all the activity after her birth. I have the cam up tonight watching her & her Mom. She is so cute and full of energy!

    Well here's my block 11. I think I now feel comfortable enough to wait for the June start date to do more. Obviously there are things that need work, but I think I'll get better with each block. I'll continue to watch for the blocks from the JTGC as ya'll keep me motivated and awed!

    Kathy---I believe you are doing your applique by machine correct? Are you also doing the embroidery by machine? If so, what stitch are you using as yours looks like hand work.

    All of these blocks are just beautiful and it's so astonishing to see how different they are.

    Lovely block Roxanne, looks good to me. Are you telling us that you are going to not make any more until June now? You are far stronger than I was. Once I started, I couldn't stop!

    You could skip to an easier one, and go back to no. 10 when you feel a bit more confident.

    I'm supposed to be working on my funky chicken quilt anyway. I just got anxious about my lack of applique/embroidery skills and wanted to practice before June. But, you are right this is addictive. I absolutely love this quilt and I am enjoying the hand work when my hands will allow. boy, these tiny pieces are tough aren't they?

    I love your block. The embroidery is the icing on the cake. FYI, I visited Sligo on a tour. A most memorable trip.

    Roxanne, great job!! I love your take on this one. ...and yeah about your chicken quilt..you should do some funky cats while you wait for your chickens to fly the coop and head home...LOL!!

    I bet you will sneak in another block or two of AOTH before June as its great to have some handwork going and yes..the tiny pieces are hard to deal with- mine are the 7" blocks...are yours?

    Yes, I'm keeping mine at 7" too as I really didn't want to do another large quilt. As for cats...nope, not my thing (I'm allergic!)
    LOL....but really, I really enjoy looking at all the "funkies" being done. They give me my daily smile.

    Donna, most of us locals like the county, but don't rate Sligo town all that much, there are nicer ones around about.
