    Love that blue one, JanRN...the red is OK as well, I just like the blue one.

    Re-organizing the quilt room, putting things back into the guest room to get it out of the way so I have room to move around again. At least most of it is in totes, so not hard to move. No canning zone right now in the kitchen 'cause I am in the QR, so gave the neighbor all the produce to date. No FW blocks in the works until Savannah gets her act together on the flannel display board in the hall way. Played with the potential blocks of four this morning.

    Four a.m. - gosh QNS don't you sleep!

    Those are beautiful Jan - I know your quilt is going to be spectacular! I should have PP Sylvia - my squares are wonky, oh well, it is done! Tirzah is almost finished as well.

    My sewing room also needs cleaning and things put away.

    JeanieG, I go to bed at the same time as the chickens! About nine lights are out and I wake up sometime between six and seven most times. Not a night owl at all. If I don't get my sleep or meals on time, I get cranky.

    Dublb, sounds like a good deal; only thing better would be a bidding war and run up the price you get for the house.

    OK, enjoy the family visiting and give them daily hugs. I can see them all having fun on the farm.

    Good morning, everyone. Here are my Sylvia and Tirzah. Both were easier to put together than I thought they were going to be. I didn't think about the on point setting of the blocks when I made Sylvia and I liked it so much I would have made another one, but I ran out of that fabric. Oh, well, I still like it.

    I like it too, Katybob. I like both of them. Still have not started mine. Working on Savannah again today, trying it get it clear of my work table.

    Very pretty blocks, Katybob. The birdbath looks so cute. Once all your blocks are together, you'll be the only one to notice it's tilted. There are so many blocks in this quilt.

    Great job Katybob on your Sylvia. I should have PP mine! Not quite done with Tirzah, got sidetracked putting stuff away.

    Thank you, everyone! Only three more to go! I'll be glad when I'm finished, but I'll miss making them. Jeanie, PP is always my first choice unless the pieces are really big. I got hooked on that method when I made a Dear Jane.

    Beautiful blocks, ladies... the batiks are so rich and beautiful. I love the birdbath block too. Crooked or not it's going to be adorable.

    I've been toying with the idea of having some blocks set on point in the center of my quilt, and then some set straight around the perimeter. I'm really torn chosing one way or the other, because I have my favorites for setting both ways. Some just look better on point, and others straight.

    Ok, here they are... only two days late!

    Yup, I'm sick of making these too. Glad there are only 3 left. I still have a dozen or so of the previous ones to finish up, but I'm not going to be in a big hurry.

    This year I've actually made several special quilts for myself. Never done that before! But I have my RxR, will have this quilt, also my embroidery quilt and a very challenging Hawaiian applique quilt of sea turtles and dolphins. All for ME!

    Those look great SBG!

    Katybob - I have done a lot of PP, but I much prefer regular piecing!

    Those are beautiful, Nina Sue. That green is one of my favorites!

    I have some of that blue fabric that you used in Tirzah.
