    Fifteen views and no blocks to see. Is it because it only takes 94 in the queen size and everyone has stopped or just busy this time of the year?? Just getting my QR so I can work in again; progress is being made. Think I have more projects than ever to do. I want to work on them all at the same time! LOL!

    Anne, I hope it's okay that I post my last 3 blocks today; easier than taking a pic next week of just one block. I'm so glad this is done but now what to do? It's almost like post-partum depression--postquilt depression LOL.Name:  97 - 98 - 99.jpg

    Love those blocks, JanRN. Wish mine was done. Sigh. It takes time and effort I am not sure I have right now.

    Here are my two. Got hubby's birthday shirt made today and then started on these:

    I had a hard time with Viola. My block came out 1/2" taller than wide! So I had to do alterations on it to make it square. You can see I'm going to lose some points.

    Very pretty, SBG. I also had trouble with Viola--even paper piecing I had the small squares mixed up, re-did that one a couple of times and it's still crooked.

    Great blocks, Jeanie.... especially love your red Viola!

    Has anyone been reading the stories as we go through the book? I started out reading them but didn't keep it up. They really keep you humble!

    Done! I think it'll be quite a while before I start putting the quilt together. I've got a few in line to finish ahead of this one. This was fun! I guess I'll start looking around for another BOM or quiltalong soon.

    Anne, were you calling us anal (in a nice way LOL)?

    Katybob, what a relief, right? I'm setting mine straight, not on point and it makes a big quilt. i"m anxious to see yours put together but realize we need a break after staring at these for a year. Mine will get done in time or it will end up in The Box that Shall Never Be Opened. (I need another box--too many things in there)

    Aw, we need to bite the bullet and make these blocks into quilts. Why not? Then we can hang them or put them on a bed and admire our beautiful work! I still have a dozen or so older ones to catch up on, plus #99. Maybe I should lay out what I have and just see how humongous it is already. Maybe I don't need the missing blocks.

    After doing the really complicated ones at the end, I turn up my nose at some of the simple ones.

    Any way... I've still got work to do on this quilt!

    Nah, I'm just glad that there were some plugging their way thru to the end...How many did we start out with??? there were around 30 then it dwindled down to 1/2 that then 9/10 and then to where we are now.. I've been doing these Quiltalongs since August 4th 2010..some of you have been with me since then...I'm tired of them...I did make 3 blocks for the Gypsy Wife between all the candies I worked on..little ones 3.5" there are 30 of them in the quilt!!

    It's time for me to hit the hay!! I'm tired... later, H.

    It sure makes me happy to have all of these finished. I have been pressing and sliver trimming them. I just do a few at a time, it is too warm to sit in front of a hot iron.

    Pretty colors, Nina Sue!

    All of my blocks came out slightly different sizes, most being 6.25". But I have a few that are 6" and a few that are 6.5". I kinda dread trying to make them all fit, probably by finagling the settings.

    Can't wait til some of you start putting yours together (HINT HINT...).

    I am pressing and sliver cutting mine right now, and I agree, they are coming out mostly 6.25" also. I don't think I had this problem with the other ones we did, at least not to this extent. Glad I'm not the only one with different sizes!
