    I did not go into the quilt stores on the 10th of Sep when I was driven to Des Moines for my skin cancer appointment; I was cleared with no new skin cancer spots. But I am making slow progress on the Bible Sampler:Name:  DSCN0976.JPG

    If you enlarge the photo you can read the block number and name. Fish, the last one above, I had to paper piece and it was a holy terror in trying to fit all the Y seams together. They all finish as a 6 inch block. Whew!

    dublb, That sounds like quite an event for the 09/11 remembrance. Yes, it seems like a good history lesson for home schooled children, or anyone.

    QNS, Great blocks! It looks like the 6" Bible block series has lots of pieces just like the 1930s Sampler did. I've always loved that fish block-- it's on my to-do list, if I ever get to it though, I don't know.

    QNS, great news that you have no new skin cancer spots! My dad used to have his treater often. He picked cotton as a kid here in Mississippi and the damage was done then. Stay out of the sun!

    Love your pretty blocks, especially the fish. They look very hard to make.

    Great MD report, QNS! Your color selection wonderful as always

    It's so unfortunate that we have to remember these awful moments is history, but so important that we do.

    I have so many fabric scraps that I started cutting some of them up. The largest piece is 5" wide...charm squares and 5 x 10 pieces. Have I shared this free pattern? I've sewn a couple of them at work. Think it would make a great scrappy quilt and use yardage for the jelly roll.

    Then I'm cutting the left overs into other widths...I've got lots of ideas based on the white strippy quilt I shared earlier...the first panto quilt I did.

    Better call it a day soon...work tomorrow.

    OH Sue your blocks are lovely! I'm thrilled that ya don't have any new cancer. HUGGS.

    I have some bad news. My niece has leukemia. It is the easiest type to treat. She will go to St Jude's hospital tomarrow. She is gonna be transported by ambulance. Such a hard thing for a 16 yo to go through.

    Dublb, St Jude's is a great place to treat and cure children. I put up a fund raiser for them on my Face book birthday site. Face book donates $5.00 and starts the kickoff for the fund raiser. Doubt is it will get much 'cause I cannot match funds right now, but every dollar means a lot to their research.

    Ottumwa woman's health center has put me on antibiotics Metronidazole for seven days because there is an altered vaginal flora bacteria infection going on. The bacteria was still 'too young' to tell much. Had to laugh at that, a 76 yr old woman having bacteria that was too young! Ha. Modern medicine progress can tell that much, so guess it is not all bad.

    Yep that 'fish' block was a terrible Y seams mess; I have a 'fish' block to add that is not a Y seam nightmare to do. LOL! Going to try QAYG on my butterflies, finish my fifth row of Bible Sampler blocks and start on the 6th row...out of 16 rows. Maybe do a small mini quilt...similar to the one hanging in my quilt room.

    That's a cool top, Bev. It will make a nice comfy warm blanket for her. It's usually cold in the treatment rooms. Praying she responds well to the chemo and is healthy again soon.

    It is quilted!

    This is the minkie back. I used it for the quilting design.

    These picts are closer in color than the one I posted yesterday.

    Looks great, Bev! How smart of you to use the diamond pattern in the Minkie to do the quilting.

    Good idea, OK...we need a 'like' and a 'love' button.

    Thanks for all the nice words. I have pasted the templates on cardboard for the next row on the Bible Sampler for the next row. More Y seams coming up.

    Dublb, lovey quilt all ready for the granddaughter. China's fabrics are going to cost more, so it is said. The cotton crop in Texas failed so cotton fabric will be higher priced, too. Gas has already jumped up due to tropical storms. It is the poor farmer, of course paying more for gas harvesting their crop. No increase in retired people's pay, so we will cut a little deeper on our month budget again. Life does get interesting.

    My Niece must be doing well as she has been moved to a dormitory & is now classified as an "out patient." My DSisIL hasn't picked up the package as they were so busy moving yesterday. If they get mail they have to pick it up from the mail room. She will be passing the mail room as she goes to get her treatment today. Then it will be Tues till she needs another treatment. DB has already gone back to Springfield MO.

    A quilt we made 20 years ago for a friend of our son's who was getting married. Today, he sent me this picture to tell how he and his wife loved it and still care for it today on their 20th wedding anniversary. That is a well loved and cared for quilt. Quite possible this quilt will out live us; so it may be true that our quilts we make may out live us. That is a good thought, because who will remember how clean how clean we kept our home that long. So, don't worry about house, go ahead and quilt. Yes, it is a Stack 'n Whack Quilt with a ribbon border.

    Love that beautiful stack and whack, QNS, as I’m sure that couple does too.

    And thank you for that permission to ignore the housecleaning and quilt!

    What a lovely thought from your friend, QNS. So heartwarming when a gift is so well received!

    Last night I got a new apron for work...had a small rip in the old one at the pocket and was catching it on the screws that hold the cutting mats together. Better hustle as it's a work day.
