    Evalyn, does this mean you are joining us? Great! This is just THE BEST group of ladies you could ever find. They are so supportive and helpful. Got all sorts of hints & tips. If you run into a problem, someone will have the perfect solution for it.

    Let us know what your plans for your quilt are. If you go to the bottom of any page there is a row of links. At the far right is "Topic Lists." Click on that, then click on "Affairs of the Heart Cyber-Sew 2011." This will take you to our little world of threads all related to this quilt & group. It's the easiest way to find what you are looking for, especially threads of pictures. There is a thread for each & every block, the center unit & finished quilts - yes, I am predicting a finished one in the not too distant future, but that sweet lady is on holiday, so I don't think she's speeding along at the moment.

    Again, welcome.

    Awwww, Evalyn, are you sure? WE'd rally love to have you. You don't need to follow the schedule, but work at your own pace. We don't officially start until June 5. Please reconsider.

    Lynnie, Lesley is unbelievable! She must be able to do two things at one time - something for each hand! :-) I don't know how she accomplishes so much in one day, but she does & her work is impeccable! And all the while she is doing one thing, her mind is already designing something else!

    It's easy, its because I sit on my backside such a lot! LOL. But yes, I do think ahead. I'm getting closer, I have all four big borders on, corners mitered, and two and a half of them have the reverse hearts done across those mitres.

    Oh my Lesley, I wish I could spend a week with you. Just imagine how much I could learn. I am back at home now so my blocks won't get done as fast as when I spent my time in a hotel room just working all day on my blocks. To many kids wanting my attention. Today 3 of my GD wanted to learn Applique' so the traced patterns and are ready to cut them out for their quilt. So I had to help them. Maybe tomorrow I can get one of my blocks done (HOPING) can't wait to see your borders

    I am thinking ahead also. My next quilt is going to be Beautiful Botanicals by Deborah Kemball. I don't think I can do Little Brown Birds it seems a bit hard.

    OOOH, just took a peek on Amazon and the book looked really nice. The front cover reminded me of Crewel (wool) work designs. They should make a really nice applique quilt.

    I peeked too. Ooooo! It is beautiful & I didn't see a single scroll!!! Plenty of melons (leaves) though.

    I'm going to do LBB by machine using my open satin stitch method & fusibles.

    I was going to do Flowers Hearts and Garland, it is in the masterpiece series. It looks like a great quilt to make. I can't afford the book for LBB it is $60.00, to steep for me

    My thinking exactly, so I am the proud owner of the F, H+G book.
    It's lovely! :D

    Well here is my completed top - I actually finished it on the 4th, but the weather conspired against me for taking the pics. Even today the wind was difficult, and the stand I have wasn't tall enough, so I had to anchor the bottom corners in the ground with skewers, so it still isn't a straight on shot

    Absolutely stunning, Lesley. If mine turns out half as nice, I will be thrilled.

    What a beautiful piece. Lesley, your added vines and flowers in the border were a stroke of genius too, they add such a personal touch and somehow make it seem more complete. Congratulations!

    What are your plans for it?
