    Actually we could take any 9 patch from the PC book and convert it to a maple leaf. It's squares and half triangles and then a stem. Shouldn't be too hard. I've looked briefly on line and 8 inch blocks are not nearly as adaptable as the 6, 9, or 12 inch ones are. Probably my last time doing 8 inch blocks!

    I can resize the Maple Leaf into an 8" block for us. With the 8" block and 9P based blocks is that 8" divided by 3 equals 2.6666666667 (2 2/3"). Not a very friendly quilitng fraction. Let me go back to EQ and get one done.

    I know I have the Aussie flag fabric for mirabelle--but does anyone have an idea I could build on (like the tulip) for Australia. I've been playing with a PP sheep, but don't have all the kinks out. Maybe mirabelle doesn't want to be represented by a sheep. Any ideas there, Sheila?

    I'm tickled you all like the tulip block. Bev, I'm sure you can find appropriate fabrics your RWB's to give the proper perspectives.

    I like the chatting on the discussion page, too QNS. Isn't that what it's for? Just because we are a little ADD let's us get off topic

    Since the above block looks great in an on point quilt. I modified the block for a straight setting. You will have to piece one of the PP sections. I couldn't get it on one page. There is also a rotary cut PDF.Name:  Canadian Maple Leaf2.JPG

    OksewGlad, we are not ADD, we get off the topic 'cause there's so many ways we can each look blocks & at quilting, even creating blocks and discussing what we are doing with life in general. QuiltE is not exactly AWOL, but she's not "POP' in very often and is missed greatly....As we will miss the comments from others who go on their retreats...even though they are having fun...I miss their comments on line here.

    Dh had pp Hunter's choice, and now has misplaced it in moving back to his room, so will have to check for that asap. Haircuts at the Barbershop tomorrow, returned the code reader hand held machine to Wal Mart checker who dropped it into my clear plastic tub and I failed to see it until that afternoon, and check with the butcher at the meat processing plant about the neighbor's beef he will be butchering for us next week. Approximately 1400 pound Angus steer; will split costs with dd and dfriend.

    Looks like I will be alternate driver for dear friend on Mondays and Fridays as she takes her Aunt to Des Moines for Cancer treatment. She will drop her off on Mondays and pick her back up on Fridays...for five weeks. Although it will cut into quilting time, and housework, I will set aside the time to help dear friend. The good news is we get a chance at exploring more quilt shops and the book store we both like.

    Does anybody know Cindy Ciascato who is going to be with Somewhere Quilting shop in Ohio for certification(?)? And according to that shop, Judy Niemeyer is coming out with a new Wedding Ring template??

    I too love the chatter. I always save these threads for last 'cause they are where I want ta linger.
    OK - I love the Maple Leaf patterns.It always amazes me what ya can do w/EQ.
    Sue - I know that your quiltin' time will be cut into but ya are gonna be blessed for doin' this for your friend. I admire ya for doin' this!

    I've been busy workin' on my DNephew's graduation quilt. I told the manager, at the Assisted Living Facility where DMIL is, that I would see if I could do somethin' about her bobbin tension troubles on her DSM. It is a Euro Pro Deluxe Denim Machine. I cleaned it up, oiled it, found a piece o' thread stuck way back in the back of the bobbin area, & adjusted the bobbin tension. I thought I would test it on some o' the denim rag blocks for my nephew. Wow what a machine. Glenda said that I can use it till I finish his quilt.

    Wonder how many in Assisted Living would like to quilt a hot pad?? You may end up with a group quilting with you, Dublb. I know they usually like to interest the elder generation with different activities. I guess you can keep the machine humming along merrily doing the denim quilt...show us when you finish it.

My plan: it would only be about 18" x 20" and made out of large squares of different textured fabrics (fleece, corduroy, flannel, chenile, suede, etc). The ones I saw also had a zipper and buttons sewn on. I don't think I should add those since he's only 4. What do you think? Also, some had ribbons hanging off the sides; is this a good/bad idea for a 4 y/o? Can you think of anything else I might add? I'm lost here and you ladies are always so kind and have great suggestions. Help, please!!
    Peace-Jan
    JanRN I googles Sensory quilts but didn't really find anything, how about appliqueing animals like giraffe and use wool for a plaited tail, or a bear with a furry tummy, lots of pockets with zippers and velcro, you could also stitch in bear growlers or small toys that rattle or make a noise, just a few ideas

    Thanks for the quick work on the Maple Leaf Block, OKsewglad! I have EQ5, but don't have much luck with it, always getting stuff designed, then lose them, or can't find them again. I don't know if the later EQ's are any easier, but I found EQ5 to be very difficult to learn. I also like the 1st block the best.

    I think Australia is also known for kangaroos and camels.

    I love the tulip block for Anael and the second Maple Leaf for QuiltE, I will definitely substitute two blocks for these and there is a Stars and Stripes blocks soon so that is for my US friends. A Sheep???? hmmmm the area I live in is predominantly sugar cane but the tourist area is called the "Great Green Way" and is represented by a green tree frog a Frog????hmmmmm. I might have to look for a PP'd rose

    I love to read the chatter every morning, its like a daily fix.

    Thank you, ladies, for all the great suggestions for the sensory quilt. I like the idea of pockets and some animals (maybe I'll just make tails since I can't applique). I'll check out what the mom wants; I get the idea she just wants something cuddlly for him to hang on to. Thank you--I knew I could count on yinz!

    OK great job with the tulips and maple leaf blocks. I saved some pp animals. Let me check for a frog or kangaroo (if I can remember what I saved them under).

    Oh what a great frog--I should be able to super size (8") him. He can also represent any frog stitching we've all managed to do! Anxious to see what QNS comes up with.

    All o' the residents at the Assisted Living facility are in late stages o' Alzheimer's. Very sad. In the 3 years that DMIL has been there there has only been 2 that weren't in some stage o' dementia. I wish that some o' them could do something crafty. Glenda just wanted the machine ta work in case she needed it. It hasn't worked in over a year.

    Well, I vote for the ittle frog. Yep, I had a pattern, but after I tore my newly organized cave apart I remembered loaning it to a friend who misplaces things most of the time...in her two and half rooms of fabric, etc., best to move on and not count on my frog...cannot even find the squares that I had done. Think she might have taken the whole packet to keep it together at my urgings.

    Good news is that I found some other stuff I was looking for!!! So can get that packet for adopted gd together in the near future.

    Ahhh I love the frog. Your right it won't work w/the R/W/B. I'll never pick out fabric before I git my book or pattern again! Hmmm I guess I'll stick w/ the Mariners' Compasses that I had planned before. I sewed my rag quilt tagether wrong & had ta frog stitch it yesterday. I guess I'll redo it taday.

    My browsing was just interrupted by a QE PM and a link to why she hasn't "Popped" in. Aren't her little quilts just great.
