    Now don't use that as a reason to stall production!!!
    Here's another idea .... what about for some of the upcoming blocks, an overlay of the lace on navy? I'm thinking that you're thinking lace in the borders? perhaps even a ruffled lace? ooooooooh I like!

    all of the above

    no we are good now, the fire is out! we had a couple of good downpours, one BIG flash storm as well! I didnt even have time to get all of the laundry off the line before we got hit with sideways rain and hail! two of the brand new baby goats got caught out in it as well, so they got to dry off in the house with DHs grandkids that were visiting for the day we also have a bottle baby that they got to feed SO after 10 minutes of storm had passed by the kids got to go run and jump and play in mud puddles my kitchen is STILL a mud mess after baby goats and grandkids... but OH they had FUN!!!

    Ok--so I was looking just in case this week's posts were up early and came across this thread that I missed! Everyone's blocks look so good all together!!! I almost have 30 blocks finished, plus nearly 20 more all cut and ready to sew.

    ... Sadly, I don't qualify for this thread! I got as far as #38 (I think!) and then life seemed to get interrupted with Butter Display prep and then the Fairs and ... and ... and ..................

    I haven't sewn any since the first week of August, except for the two Quilt Labels that I did this week for the two quilts going in the Show/Sale tomorrow.

    I just wish I knew WHEN I could get back into the groove ... as now I have the first two weeks of November out of town for work, and then there's my Christmas To-Do's!! arrrrrghhh Maybe this is why I am sick?

    Me-Thinks I may be transferring to the Miniature Pony Club!!

    But but but ... it wouldn't be good eye candy, as it's short on the numbers!

    I just went back, and posted already are
    MiraB, JanRN, GGal, JeanieG, GrannyQ and DDamsel.
    I think it's time for you Cowgirls to show us your continuing flock of blocks!

    So what about the other Lil Cowgirls who have been skipping right along???
    Me-thinks that
    CarrieM, Honchey and QNSue have 45 done.
    And what about O
    KSGlad? ... she's been Boot Scootin' Boogie-ing along too, I think.


    DDamsel ... what's been happening on the lace front?

    Whatever will be will be, if its God's plan, then we will go with whatever. $$$$$ are not in the budget. I am introducing her Sunday afternoon to others who quilt in the area; and in November to the cross stitch group, which she has a passion for yearning to do more of than quilting. She even took my unfinished masterpiece to finish for me.

    She had listened when I related the tale of our last Christmas with dd before she met her love and married; we made adult Christmas stockings together and I treasure that memory of love. So she made her siblings each a cross stitched Christmas stocking, and wanted to back it with corduroy, so we made a little FART trip yesterday on my nickel. It was a success, we found a bargain price for her to get what she needed for that and fabric for her to make a 'fishing' quilt like mine as well. Enjoyed the local cross stitch show in my bank, finished the good day with Dairy Q. ice cream. Perfect day.

    QuiltE, you have a month or two, so its possible to get that sewing machine to humming along and finish with us...you are over a third done.

    Aw ... thanks for the confidence QNSue ... I first will have to get the Christmas To Do's out of the way and then once that's done I can seriously sew what "I" want to!

    Sounds like a fun day for the two of you yesterday ... and of course, the best part ... ending it with ice cream!

    Maybe Santa will bring the LA to you in a giant stocking!

    Here are my two quilts (each missing a few blocks)...I don't have the blocks exactly where I want them but you get the idea of the layouts. The one with the blocks on point will have a blue sashing and border around the middle blocks and then a border of blocks all the way around. The other blocks in rows will have red sashing.

    This is 54 blocks total....

    QE--The quilts will go on the bed I laid them out on...it is a built in bed (day bed?) in our living room. I figured it would be fun to have two different quilts. I will take a picture of the room when it is light out so you can see better. Need to be getting to bed now....

    That'll be perfect! A coordinating set ... yet each unique unto itself. Will you use the same backing for both? or different ones?

    Carrie is it a Murphy bed that folds out? I thought a Daybed is one that looks like a couch. Or is it just a built in bed?
    PS. Beautiful blocks that will make a couple o' lovely quilts.
