    The FWS 30's Quilt-Along Week 10 Block #19 Carolina & Block #20 Caroline

    Hi Everyone, Carolina certainly has made a name for herself this past week..It's been all over the news !

    Seriously, please post your blocks so they can cheer me up, I'm still rather ill and as hard as I tried to get at least one block done..it was a no go last night...

    Great room is cleaner than its been since Open House back in 2005 October. Dh has burned three big 44 gallon trash can of junk and stuff. Now to use the vacuum bags that seal and clear the guest room and clean up on Quilt Room. Made a list for grocery shopping and checking it twice so it will one trip to town. Have only a week and a half ahead of the weeks here, so need to have time afterwards to puch ahead some more blocks.

    Feel better soon, Anne. Maybe looking at some pretty blocks will help. I love Tuesdays, can't wait to see what everyone did with this week's blocks. QNS--very, very nice; love the colors in Carolina.Name:  19 & 20.jpg

    Both are very cute! I now have templates and fabric cut for last week's and this week's blocks. Ready to rush home and chain piece. If the sewing machine Goddess is with me tonight, I'll get all 4 done. Knock on wood!

    QNS, your Carolina block reminds me of a kaleidoscope the way the green pops out, very pretty! JanRN, love the batiks, very pretty! I will post mine later today after work. Some of us can't work underneath our desks... Jenny... hahahaha.

    Nina & Jan, really pretty blocks, I have working with Picasa for an hour trying to get pictures up, and they all seem to vanish. So will try again. Here are my Carolina (don't know how many times I have used the seam ripper on these two blocks) and Caroline. Get well Honchey it really sucks to be sick.

    Here are my blocks for this week:

    GrannyQ - After you crop, click on Export. Move the Image Size to 640 pixels. Click Export again and notice where it is going to be saved. (I've had trouble with this also.) Mine saves the export at Picasa>Export>Desktop. I hit the diminish (-) at top of page to keep it open, that will make it easier to find. Once you start using the file, Picasa will automatically go there to retrieve your photo. Hope this makes sense!

    Everyone's blocks are just wonderful this week. Those green blocks are going to make an awesome quilt. Here are mine. Carolina was a bear to put together, but I think Caroline is my favorite so far. The colors of Caroline are not really my beloved LSU's purple and gold -- they're much softer than that "in real life".

    OK let's try this again, having trouble posting pictures today, here are mine, Carolina and Caroline, did have tlittle trouble with both, one lining up points and the other fitting in, in fact I see 2 little buckles in both sides at same point, but I think like katybob Carolina is my favorite. As you can see the sun is shinning today, praying for my family and QuiltingNinaSue and all on the east coast.

    Ooo. More pretties. Made progress catching up last night, but didn't finish any of them. Chain pieced a bunch and hoping to finish tonight. I decided to make fried chicken last night because I was craving it, so that took some time out of my sewing time. Then the wolf (my husky dog) decided it was time to get me off the couch and out to the park.

    Beautiful blocks ladies. I have had a busy week so no blocks yet. Anne, for the cough....apple cider vinegar with honey, take a little sip, make sure to not suck it up as the cough will start. You might need to take a 2 to 3 sips. Somehow the venigar cuts the cough and lay down sort of at an incline not laying down flat. I swear by the honey and vinegar for the cough, it's old time medicine. Please rest.

    Oksewglad - what is a TATW quilt?

    Drumroll please... I finished Carolina! My first completed and somewhat successful y-seam attempt. I'm feeling a little smug over this small victory. So is my janome sew mini... The gingham looks wonky, but it's not, I just haven't pressed this one yet.
