    I am the one in last place. So far I haven't gotten all the patterns and fully intend to make them but, due to too many irons in the fire, I haven't started any of the blocks yet. I do love the patterns though and appreciate the opportunity to get them. I keep hoping my life will settle down a little so I can start stitching them.

    I just bought the background fabric, washed it, and it is in the dryer. I am the last one. I printed out the patterns and will be working on it tonight.

    I'm not sure who will be the last one (grins) but at least I know I am in wonderful company. Besides this way we get to see what everybody else has done to give us inspiration. :)

    Well I started it, tried using the interfacing technique on the pieces, what a crazy thought. Just about lost my mind trying to turn them inside out. Last night I used the freezer paper, and then used the basting thread in my bobbin, and truly loved it. I am going to have blanket stitch over raw edges, but I am ok with that. I will post a picture when I get finished with the center square, Really wanted to do it with black background but it is a pain to line up the pattern with black.

    Congrats on starting! Once you get started I think it, as well as this group, just inspires you to continue. It's that first step. Then I thought, well I finished one block, so I should be able to finish another block. I am doing needle turn on this which is a major pain for me but looking over the blocks I see I am getting a little better at it. I might just do another one but use light fusible and hand stitch around it. It would be far less stressful on me. LOL.

    I feel better today...I got a second corner block done, and started on the heart block.

    Peg, I am having a battle with myself over that inner small border. To me it looks out of scale. This is your BOM, and your design, so I am asking your permission to change that border around the center block. You can just tell me NO if you want, and I won't mind. I'll make it as you designed it. But if you don't mind, I would like to try something else. Just let me know. Like I said, your design....and I completely respect that!!

    I have a habit of making a pattern into what I want it to be. Anyway, hope I'm not offending!!

    Go for it! No permission needed. this is for fun and if you want to change anything it's fine with me.

    I appreciate your consideration of my design, but it is your quilt and I want you to love it and be happy.

    Have fun and post a pic when you've made your new border.

    Yes, I do have EQ6. I just haven't had time to sit down and mess with it for this. Maybe this weekend I'll get some time. I have projects backed up, both to be quilted and to be pieced. Never enough time in the day!! LOL

    Thank you, and I love yours too. I was thinking, if I had the time you could make two of blocks out of different things. Like patriotic colors for a quilt I am making for FIL
