    Lesley, it's phenomenal. A bit overwhelming to think that I'm only on my 4th block. When I look at yours and see all the work that was put into it I kind of wither inside.

    what a masterpiece! My mind can barely wrap around some of the more simple quilts and this one just is beyond my abilities. Too beautiful...

    Thank you so much everyone - Ducky, no withering allowed, yours will look great too - every block that has been posted on the AOTH threads has genuine merit and all they need is the other blocks to surround them. I just happen to have started much earlier than everyone else.

    The withering is just the knowledge of how far I've yet to go. I have a feeling mine will be very pretty, though.

    LaceLady, I just found "Affairs of the Heart" applique` photos & have had a blast looking at them. Would like to say thank you for sharing, & now I would like to try it. It will be added to the bucket list.

    Ducks, please be careful! withering inside isn't good for duckies, except maybe rubber ones!!!

    How kind - keep popping in, the main group officially started on 5th June (I think it was the 5th), so you wouldn't be so very far adrift if you were to start soon, and the schedule is only one block per week.

    You can see all the threads if you scroll down to the bottom of any page, click on Topic Lists, and then on the AOTH section (second down).

    Lacelady..your quilt is beyond gorgeous! What an inspiration! I just got my book today in the mail and I amj so ready to do block 1...but I have a problem...how do I do 10 inch blocks instead of 7? Do I just cut the blocks bigger or enlarge the applique patterns too? Can you help..thanks!

    You will need to enlarge your patterns with a setting of 142% at the copier. I did mine on my all-in-one printer. You don't get the whole image on an 8 1"/2" x 11" sheet of printer paper, but more than half of it, so you just need to turn the copy 180 to trace off the other half when you are marking your background fabric.

    Enlarge a design by 142% on a photocopier/printer and it will sit nicely on a 10.5in block (I cut mine 11in and trimmed down a bit once I had done the applique). You won't be able to get the whole design on a sheet of A4, but if you get more than half of it, then you will still be able to copy it onto your background fabric square by doing it half at a time.

    If you used the design straight from the book and put it on a larger background square, you would have a lot of fabric around each design, as the ones in the book are meant for 7in squares.

    Making bigger squares, and therefor a bigger quilt (mine measures 92in square now) means you will need more background fabric. I bought 15 yards, and by the time I have done the binding, I estimate I will have between half to one yard left over.

    Thank you so much...I am inclined to do the 7" blocks now. I have no need for a 92" quilt! I am sleeping single in a double bed!

    I am going to think about it for awhile anyway! Thanks again for your help. :D

    ohhh, Lace...yummmmy!!!!
    I only bought 11 yards...do I need to get more?
    my quilt is going to be the same size as yours.
    I might need 3 more yards, but I need to know.
    It's going to make a nice quilt, but I don't need a lot of this left over.
    It's not the blue ;-)

    If you are in any doubt Mousie, why not draw out a diagram on paper of your yardage. Check out pages 10 and 11 in the book to get an idea how to do that. Don't forget that I used more black in that my narrow borders have a black background that isn't allowed for in those diagrams. First thing is to measure the width of your fabric, and what size you are cutting your block backgrounds.

    You can go somewhere inbetween:
    7" x 100%
    8" x 1.14%
    9" x 1.28%
    10" x 1.42%
    11" x 1.57%
    12" x 1.71%

    At a rough calculation, 8 in blocks will give you a quilt about 73in square, and 9in blocks about 81in square. That will depend a little bit on how wide you have your narrow borders. I calculated on 1.5in wide for each of them. And allowing for your wide border to be the same size as your blocks.

    DSIL told me what product i can go by, saving tons of money...like difference between 125.00 or more, and a can of cleaner for less than 7.00 :shock: :!:
    It's a basically new heat pump, so I know it just needs the coils cleaned.
    phew! I shall have a pj party with grandklins tonight and hopefully a sewing party tomorrow :thumbup:
    YIPPEE!!! :XD:

    Well that's a relief - hope the cleaner works, cos it's a big difference in price.
