    Nor me, Honchey. I will enjoy everyone's 'eye' candy, and hope to get caught up in the next couple or three weeks... I am 'twirling' the four patches for the center of Midnight Path to join with the House that Jack Built before the 14rh of the month and finish the quilt top by then. Multi-tasking as fast as I can...washing is in the machine, ribs are in the oven and I am in the QR, sewing away. .

    I am very thankful to be employed but it sure cuts into my sewing time. Will be spending Part of Sunday and all of Monday doing some catch up!

    I will be finishing up a couple of projects to send off and then wind up on those, so I can spend more of my time on here.

    I so love being retired! Work doesn't get in the way anymore (of course, that has cut down on FARTS but the trade off is worth it). Here are my blocks for this week. Name:  57 & 58.jpg

    Nice blocks Jan, I just love your batiks . Buddy's mom, I have at least 10 blocks to catch up on, maybe more, and I started at the beginning. I got behind over the holidays but little by little I will get caught up.

    You can finish the past blocks as you work on the current blocks...that is what I will do in several weeks.

    JanRN, lovely blocks; very inspiring to go do mine, if I was not under a deadline for the top I am putting together. Speaking of such, I need to go sew. Sew onward.

    JanRN those are pretty blocks. Nice contrast. Now I want to at least get those papers printed out, and choose my fabric.

    Nice and I like the colors. Never thought of putting these two shades of green together. I like the variation of the colors. Both blocks are pretty.

    Love them Katy. For some reason I always associated 30's prints with "cutesy"--definitely not my style. You gals have educated me and now I may have to try them in a future project. They're so cheerful and you combined the colors so well.

    I didn't think I liked 30's prints either, Jan, then I got hooked on bitty blocks. Take a look -- http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...s-t259348.html

    I went back to look, because I couldn't remember them and they are so cute.

    Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream, that's what your block reminds me of Jan..So cool & pretty...

    Critics say red & pink don't go together but your block Katy shows they're wrong..Love the green & yellow combo..I have that fabric too..

    So pretty--love the addition of the red/white, looks like gingham.

    Buddy'smom, those are such pretty blocks, and I too like the red/white that looks like gingham with little daisies. I like the pretty green/blue/yellow too.

    Honchey, the print in my Margaret is as red as the solid -- it just looks pink in the picture. But I like pink and red together, too! Buddy's Mom, that gingham is just perfect for that block. And you're doing a great job with your points and matching hour seams.

    Thanks Katybob, some are not so easy, but doing my best, there are a few I need to replace with another as I can not do Y seams.

    Of course you can do Y seams! I believe QNS has the best tips on how to do them and she'll probably be checking in soon. Or maybe it was Honchey. And sometimes, but not always, you can avoid them with paper piecing.

    Oh I tried and even though there pp it just didn't work for me. I love QNS, but even that won't help me.

    The Y seam is soooo easy to do. Just give your full attention to where the seams intersect at the corners....stop on that dot not one stitch more.....hold the needle down turn on next section and sew on....notch from the dot outward so you do not cut the seam and it will work out. I can take pictures if that would help...Honchey showed me with pictures, and it was a good illustrated example of it.

    Eight more blocks and I have my quilt ready to put together....hopefully by Monday...Baked three pied this afternoon. Mincemeat and apple.
