    I've been working on a comfort quilt. I'm really hoping that I can get it ready to quilt today. I will then mail it & the batting to the lady that volunteered to quilt it. She is gonna donate the backing & binding. Another lady found some fabric that matched the border & sashing to make a pillow case to store the quilt in. It has already been mailed to the lady that is gonna quilt it. All I need to do is add the top & bottom borders.

    Yes, it's an old pattern. I don't think BH designed it, but she has a version on her blog. I might be wrong about that, tho.

    My bricks are on the dark side, so I'm using red and white 4Ps, instead of black and white.

    I cut out six new placemat tops yesterday for fall with the fabrics in my stash; I will complete them this weekend, or will be canning beans or corn or tomatoes whatever I can find locally.

    Sounds like we are all getting into the sewing routine...time to put my feet up. Picked up 13 yo after Cross Country practice tonight, so the day just got longer.

    Love the UFO work going on-- great reports! :-)
    What a testimony to kindness for the help given during the house fire. It does your heart good to know there are thoughtful, generous people living around you.
    CW fabrics! Looking forward to seeing progress on that one!
    Add my congratulations to the achievement of your son! I never heard of a 'white coat' ceremony for a doctor. It made me think of the military ceremonies.
    That archery event sounds like one in a life time! Best wishes for success, what fun!

    Givio, Hi! I got the Bricks and Stones top done today (the one with CW fabrics), and found I had over-made the blocks! So I have almost enough to do another one the same. I'm making just 17 more blocks and then I'll put the second one together.

    Here's the first:

    Hi everyone!!! I have not been on the Board in ages. When I don't get notifications for a while, I just forget to log in.

    I have 1/3 of my 2012 Easy Street Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilted. It has been too hot here to work on it, so it is waiting. I have been finishing up a Quilting Board BOM from 2012. Only have the December BOM to complete, then can put it together.

    I let so many of my 2012 projects sit for so long, it is kind of fun to get them out and finish them. I have 5 2012 quilts that need quilting and 1 tablecloth. I have 2 quilts from 2014, 1 tabletopper and 3 quilts from 2015. I have ONLY 1 quilt from 2016, and 2 quilts from 2017. I'm not listing the 2018 and 2019 items you notice!!! LOL However there are not too many.

    Wish it would cool down, so I could get to all these flimsies!

    I have been watching all the reports on the shooting in Midland today, and thinking about Bev and hope all her relatives and friends are okay. Prayers to all the victims and their families.

    SBG: Love your Bricks and Stones quilt in Civil War fabrics. You have CW fabrics that I have never seen. Nicely done.

    I hadn't heard about the Texas shootings...heart goes out to our dear friend in Texas and pray all is well with you dublb.

    Jeanie...great to hear from you...UFO's are all over the place. I just finished one for my FarmerSon...it was supposed to go to college with him...um that was 1992...a little bit older than yours Jeanie, so don't feel bad! But it's fun and done and ready for him to take home after chores tonight. It's 12 Hole in the Barn Door 16" blocks with sashings (4") and a wide outer border of new denim. Blocks are made of bright twill fabrics...red/blue/gray/tan etc. Will try to get a picture tomorrow. Now back to the big quilt piecing.

    SBG, love the Bricks and Stones. The red and cream stones are very striking! I am relieved to know that I'm not the only one who miscounts, but mine is usually less than, rather than more than!

    First we are in Midland for our annual dove hunt. We all are safe. Actually the shooter was in Odessa which is 20 miles away. The shooter never left Odessa. He was shot & killed. There are 21 people that are injured & 5 of those are dead.

    So glad to hear you are ok, Bev. That was really a shock. I think the more publicity these shootings get, the more mentally unstable people try them.

    Jeanie, as you get those UFOs done, you should post them in the UFO thread. I think yours would be among the oldest! I have a few I need to get quilted and post there, too.

    I have been much better about totally finishing my quilts recently (last few years). I think I was in such a hurry to do all the piecing, that I just stashed them when at the flimsy stage. I also did not have my Brother PQ1500 then also. I bought it to quilt with, and I sure do love that single stitch machine.

    Bev sure glad to find you and yours all okay. The news reports listed Midland also??? Maybe they meant that patients were sent to Midland Hospital??

    Sew much news here; I have not been sewing but I need to be doing some sewing. I pet the fabric and stop doing anything else, its sitting on my work table.I did not know about the shootings and the unstable mind behind it until I looked at face book, then here. Sad. Prayers for all the family members grieving for their loved ones.

    Rosie, who quilted with us for a while lives in Florida and is busy baking up food to use when the power goes out. If I were there, if they said it was approaching at 170 miles an hour winds, I'd be gone inland away from the storm. Yesterday. Maybe I will get back into motion sewing this week. What ever will be, will be.

    SBG - I agree. I guess the police chief of Odessa refused to release the name of the shooter for a very long time. He didn't want to make his name big.
    Jeanie - Midland was mentioned for 3 reasons.
    First, the guy was headed toward Midland when he was finally taken out. Midland & Odessa are twin cities that are growing closer together. For a while the reports lead everyone think he had made it to Midland.
    Second, Yes several of the victims were sent to Midland Memorial Hospital.
    Third, the Mayor of Midland went on national news networks to talk about it. He didn't give out accurate info when he did. Just the rumors that were going through both towns.


    I am so glad that he didn't hurt any more people than he did. We do know that the 17 mo old li'le girl was shot in the mouth & shoulder. She is doing great. She is gonna gonna have surgery in the next couple of days on her mouth.
    I have heard that 7 have actually died. One of that number is the shooter.

    Hi...just checking in again.

    SBQ--Love the CW quilt! That pattern looks like a great way to use up some scraps. What size are the rectangles and squares?

    OK--you always amaze me with all you do!!

    My son's trip to Spain was a good experience. He didn't shoot as well as he would have liked (was having some issues with is form). Unfortunately he came home and has been sick all this past week with a bad cold.

    I finally finished up the 3 bindings I've had sitting here to do for weeks. I'll get those quilts shipped off on Wednesday when I go to town. I got some mending done. Next, working to get things sitting around out of my room...so tired of the piles!!! I will be picking up fabric to make a baby quilt and a panel someone wants me to make into a wallhanging on Wednesday too. It is nice to have these little jobs for some extra income...just two more archery tournaments then money can go into savings again for next year.

    Yes, that baby being shot in the face is heartbreaking! Pray she recovers fully.

    Hi Carrie, the “bricks” in my top were cut 3.5”x 6.5”. The little 4patch “stones” were made with 2” strips and finish at 3.5” square. There is a pattern for Bricks and Stones at Quiltville.com, if you need one to follow.

    SBG, The colors of your Bricks and Stones quilt are so rich. Sometimes the most simple patterns are such a delight.

    I don't have a TV, don't listen to the news on the radio, don't read FB... I guess it's a way to not find out about shootings very quickly. If it's not the 'cover story' on the opening page of my email account, then I don't see what's in the news much. These events didn't happen when I was growing up. What has the US become?

    This day was going purdy good. The DGK's were over here for a bit as DSonIL had the sonic kidney stone surgery today. I started working on DFGD's quilt after we all had lunch. I think it made her happy to know that I was working on it. I got the last border on & the 2 corner's mitered. (I only put 3 borders on this one as it is gonna be for a day bed & is wide enough as it is. That other border would have been tucked in & bunched up.) Anyway I kept working on it after they went home. I was then pressing all the seams open. It is a Jelly Roll Race style quilt but I made it w/60 strips instead of 40. The edges had been pressed open but not the whole quilt. Not in a while anyway. All those seams were taking me forever to get pressed as I kept taking those breaks that my back demands.
    Then at about 8:30 DD called & needed me to take her to the ER. Her lip was swelling from a hive. Sigh this is the third time she has had hives in the last month. They got her right in, gave her 2 injections & got the swelling to go down. I was teasing her that some people get injections of Botox to get their lips to puff up that way. Anyway once the swelling went down they sent us home around 11:00.

    A roller coaster day, dublb.

    While sorting I find UFO's and once in a while decide to "get them done". The third such project was a 40 x 40 pastel quilt with blue and yellow borders. I tried a pantograph for the second time. And like every "new" technique one learns something new. I think I should have used a smaller design..this one was 14" and hardly got into the rhythm of sewing it and then it was done and time to start a new row. One lives and learns! Anothe work day...must go.

    31 pints of fresh peaches canned. DH is happy. Waiting for insurance to 'certify' another scan and talking to a new Dr. to; find out when and where surgery will be done, might be Iowa City University Hospital. It was originally planned in August, but the DR. was postponing it, so I got a second opinion. Now I wait again. And again. Probably will go to Iowa City with laser surgery for quicker recovery. Which has to be 'certified' by Insurance again, up to 72 hours of waiting, age has its senior moments. Good thing I have patience, learned from quilting. Thank God is not yet a life threatening situation. What will be, will be.

    Taking a day of rest, then canning a bushel of apples. Dh is very helpful in canning, cleaning and doing whatever I ask of him.
