    Great blocks everyone. I finished one of the two! Jan, your quilting just gets more impressive all the time. How are you doing on your new toy??? Did you do these blocks on it?

    Thanks, Jeanie. These I quilted on my Viking; I started the blocks on it and wanted to be consistent. They are so fun to quilt at this size. I've been playing a little with my Sweet 16--very humbling to see how much practice I need. I've got chronic bursitis in my left shoulder and this weather is making the pain so much worse than usual; I can't really do too much sewing on large items. Can't wait to play some more and maybe get a few wall hanging (UFO's) done.

    Oh gosh, Jan, I know what you mean about the bursitis, I have had bought of that in the past! Right now my arthritis is my hands in acting up. My fingers are so stiff! It is a good thing I keep using them in quilting and typing, as I can imagine how much worse they would be if I did not exercise them in this way.

    Are you getting any of that hurricane in your area? The damage is going to be astronomical I hear! Will be praying for all of you in harms way!

    WOW! .... some beauties thru the storm!

    Honchey ... hope the power stayed on and you've been able to use this as a pleasant distraction!

    QNSue ... Good to see the telephone again this week. Your Virginia Star really frames up those horses well. The blues, kind of look like the storm brewing in the background.

    CarrieM ... still love that Boudoir Phone! And oh my, that VS is perfectly contrasted and shows off so well!

    MiraB ... another pair filled with *sighs*! Virginia is truly American patriotic with those roses surrounded with the stars. Have a FUN day with your DD. It's so nice that the two of you share your love of sewing.

    JanRN ... A beautiful pair to brighten your way in the storm. The one on the left is so clean and crisp. The one on the right is stunning! Are you using a twin needle for your double rows of stitching? As for what ... what are the names of both blocks?

    Thanks, QE, and good to hear from you. How was the storm in your area? Luckily, we have no damage but flooding is a given with all our hills and valleys. I'm on a hill thankfully but we do have some water in the basement; this has only happened twice before so you know we got tons of rain. DH keeps yelling at me to turn off the Weather Channel (I'm a WC junkie) but I'm amazed at the pics from the coast. Hope Anne is okay.

    The blocks on the left is one from PC (Virginia I think) but the block on the right is from QuiltersCache called North Woods Cabin. It's one that turned out too small so I "framed" it to bring it up to size. I just quilt with a single needle then echo the lines.

    Hi JanRN ... morning has broke and the wind is just gusts now. I don't think things were too bad here and I know I didn't get a deluge of rain. Though listening to the tube, I can see that some areas not far off (more south of me) had a lot of trees down and that there are 150,000 in the province without hydro. So all's good and I count my lucky blessings! Hope that Patches (and MrJanRN!!) have an easier day today. Great job on the frame up! I asked about the twin needle, as I was thinking the other day how that could be effective for quilting, so picked up on yours. Besides, would save time!!

    Honchey ... I'm worried about you! I just saw that three towns in your state are flooded by 5 ft. Sure hope that is NOT you!

    So Everyone ... please clarify for me ... if JanRN's left block is Virginia, then what is the star block? Whatever it is, it's a beautiful block!

    QNSue...as usual, great stories to go with the blocks.
    Carrie...I like the way your fabric choices gave the star an echoing affect. Very nice.
    Mirabelle...Only a couple of more weeks of your beautiful roses. I've looked in my LQS and roses are hard to find!
    JanR...I really like your sub block. I'll have to look it up. Like you I've been glued to the weather channel. The affects of Sandy will be felt for a very long time.
    Quilte....JanR's block is Covered Wagon Crossing, not Virginia Star.
    We've had very different wind patterns the past few days but no damage, rain or snow. Many of our leaves got blown away on Monday and we gathered up the rest of them yesterday with our mower. I now have most of my garden tucked in for the winter with a nice cover of leaf mulch.
    I'm thinking of Honchey today as I post my pics. Name:  Week 43.JPG

    **pictures GGal's garden tucked in for the winter .... with quilts!**

    Thanks GGal for unconfusing me for the moment re block names!
    What a perfect pair ... in thinking of Honchey, I see brightness in the background of your Covered Wagon background and some blue sky peeking thru in the Star. It really pulls out the blue, that's hiding in the background fabric. Lovely!!

    Me too ... thinking of Honchey ... everytime I see more pics of NJ, I shed some tears for you Honchey!
    My ♥ goes out to you!

    Love your blocks, Ggal; that blue really pops. Thanks for sorting out the names of my block. I've made so many subs for the last 8-10 blocks I don't know what I made LOL!

    Can I run an idea by yinz? All along I planned on making 2 quilts. Here's my plan: I'm going to make one 8 blocks by 8 blocks square. This fits on the top of the bed in the spare room (with dust ruffle around bottom); I'll add a 4" border all the way around. Instead of a solid border with cornerstones, I made a bunch of 4" PC blocks (I know, I'm anal) and I thought I'd put a few in the corners and space a few randomly in the borders. Does this sound weird? In my head it sounds okay but do you think it would be too busy? I'd have a `1" border between the regular quilt blocks and the 4" border. Hope I've explained this well enough. That's today's plan, may change; please let me know if you think this okay to have just a few 4" random blocks in the border. I really value all of your suggestions. Thanks!!

    It makes sense to me JanRN ... However, I am getting a visionl of your 4" blocks on point amidst the border.

    Maybe, oh just maybe, you could get OKSGlad to get her magic wand out and show you how it could look?
    She's such a talented lady!!

    One thing to consider, blocks on point would be wider than 4 inches so the border would be wider but it would be very nice. Either way, Jan, it would be a very nice way to highlight the PC blocks.

    Have just been catching up on the storm damage and I am amazed at the pictures coming out of the US. I hope Honchey is ok, my heart goes out to everyone who has been affected.

    Oh, Jeanie, I love both of your blocks. The ladybugs are cute but the contrast in the block is so pretty. Love the blue & yellow. Yellow gives such a nice accent.

    *gasping for air*
    Did JanRN just call yellow NICE?
    *more gasps*
    What is this world coming to?

    JeanieG ... ITA ... your Ladybugs are stealing the show here, and the contrasts are perfect. And you did it again with the more subtle star. What a perfect print to use with the B+Y
