    Lot's of chatter going on!!! I just got home this evening...had a good couple of days in Delaware...Checked out my favorite Amish quilt shop and walked out a very happy camper.....there was a very large wooden clothes dryer that had 2.5" strips of fabric on sale for .25 cents each....I bought 30 of them for my swap...the owner said that it won't always be out front only once in awhile..she told me that because I don't live in the area I would be able to "shop" in the back room when I visit...How's that????? I was walking on air when I left the shop..My sister and I had so much fun picking out the different strips.

    QuiltE your MB is so pretty....soft colors...just what you asked for...I love the mr & mrs farmer...block...Where did you get the pattern from??? I"ll bet you had a grand old time shopping!! I know I did!!!

    I can't wait to get my MB...I hope it gets here before Saturday...I"ll be on my way to NC April 1st...

    Everybody keep busy chatting, reading, sewing, etc...Life is Good...enjoy it!!!

    QNSue ... well, we could always make another block with the two of you dressed properly!!

    Honchey ... So good to have you back after your fun time with your DSis! Looks like you are "special" with that shop owner to be given the special privileges! And what a neat way to buy fabrics! JanieW did a splendid job on y MB, didn;t she! Te Farmers were two separate patterns that I joined to make the one block. Also, scaled them at different % so that the sizes were more like IRL. Patterns came via QNSue's incredible pattern stash! I did have a good time shoping ... even though I knew I did NOT need any more stash and too, I didn't really have a lot of time after spending so long at the antique mall!!!

    I bet there'll be a LOT of MBs arriving in the next few days!

    DublB ... Looks like your photo didn't post now.

    Yes that's Bram dressed in white. I didn't make his outfit. My DDIL and I don't like white on them
    This is the first time you really see the difference in size between the two of them.

    Congrats on making the deadline

    I agree Anael, white is boring especially when he has a wonderful wardrobe of colourful outfits... Isa is beautiful in her bright pj's

    Very nice Sew Grands picture this morning; Yes, we can see Isa is bigger than Bram, but good things come in small packages,or so I have heard. Smallest daughter keeps saying that to us, so we all can believe it!!

    Mirabelle, good progress report! I am still working on PC rows, have five rows done to join together, and other five in progress of sewn or to be sewn, ready to set the rows together across the width of the day bed.

    Winter is in its last hurrah across the land; news said we got two to four inches, but it looks like more than that. So glad we had cancelled our outing to celebrate our anniversary. Tomorrow is soon enough to dig out of the snow drifts and snowfall. (We need our haircuts!) After Wednesday, our nighttime temps stay above 30 degrees...almost garden time!! And day time is in the high 40s and it hits the 50s here. Have to journey to get the chickens, ducks and guineas more feed on Wednesday; their cupboard is bare. No time for the 'want too', just the 'have too' to do list.

    Anael,

    I got a lump in my throat seeing those little ones. It reminded me of our twins when they were little enough to be in the same crib. The alpha twin would always turn to his brother and he eventually developed a flat side on his head. They are 5 now and he still looks out for his brother. Your babies are just beautiful, Anael.

    I have only one more PC block to make. The last one in the book to do and I'll be at 90. Then I have to decide what to do as I am going to make two smaller ones and 90 divided by two isn't a great number. Any ideas? make 6 more blocks (ugh) and do two 6 x 8 ??


    Edited to add: Your block is called Ruins of Jericho, QuiltE. Glad you like it.

    Janie, my PC is for a day bed, so its nine blocks 'wide' and ten blocks long with slashing and that is it, except for maybe a border. The blocks all face the side instead of the foot of the bed. The BBs and Mystery blocks will figure into another throw or whatever. I will take the PC back to Des Moines, Iowa, Creekside quilter Jeanie to do it as she did the FWQ...and then I will go back to using the ladies here in the local area...less expensive here, less capabilities in machine quilting, but that is OK too, 'cause its better than what I could do.

    Will have to look up that block, Janie, in my Bible devotions pattern book. Still looking forward to seeing my mystery block that is coming eventually. Have my April one done; its on my vertical display board looking bright, cheery, and it sings to me in the quilt room...may have to make several copies of it to remain there this spring.

    I promise, Honchey, no more snow your way this spring...it brought moisture to your area, so the April showers can bring May flowers...I will share photos of our flowers and hope you all will do the same. OksewGlad, forget the house and just enjoy the company; if they find some dust, give them the dust mop to clean it up. If you have UFOs on the beds, then they will know you have been busy with your priorities of quilting...age does have its advantage, I am finding out, with our company that comes by. No longer putting out big meals, or worrying about the house. They are suppose to be coming to see us, not the house.

    Anael ... oh so sweet! Isa looks huge compared to Bram!! How much do they weigh now? So nice that they are putting the two of them together ... soon they'll be fighting, like good kids should!!!!!

    MiraB ... and you were worried about meeting your DDs birthday? I can only imagine what else you will turn out before her birthday!

    Honchey ... Scrappy Scraps..... we all know who that is for!! So organized to start your packing a week ahead. I'm sure you have a busy Easter weekend planned with all before you leave.

    JanieW ... thanks for the block name! Or you could make two 6x7 and then you can leave out six that just don't fit or you don't like ... or two 7x7 and make 8 more! Possibilities are endless ... depends on what size you want your quilts. Congratulations on one away from the finish line!

    DDamsel and JanieW ... we'd sure like to see all your blocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! puhleeeeeeeease!

    Update ... last night started sewing the rows together.
    A good night tonight and .......!!!!
    wheeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    QuiltE, I don't know. I guess we will know tomorrow how much they weigh now. When I first saw this picture I thought it looks like Isa is having a baby doll

    Thank you JanieW!!!! ... what a perfectly beautiful block ... and yes, it totally fits the idea of what I was looking for when I put forth my MB request list! Right down to remembering to sign your work! You were probably wondering why I had not posted about it ... my road is closed, so haven't been going to the post office on a regular basis, as with the closure, it's a long way around on muddy roads (even though we have lots of snow still!). I never dreamed I'd have a MB so fast, and thinking it'd only be bills, I'd been putting the trek off til I was somewhat near the post office. Yesterday on the way home was the day ... now I feel so bad that I missed out on it!

    And what might be the name of this block?? ... I see it as a Broken Churn Dash, but I'm sure it has a proper name!!!

    Thanks SO MUCH JanieW!!!! ... seems like a breath of Spring air. Perhaps a chinook coming down from the west?

    Beautiful block Honchey, the bar has certainly been raised on these MB's..

    I am feeling very very tired today. Monday I quilted until 11pm, didn't mean to, I planned on an extra hour after dinner to finish one border that turned into a 3 hour marathon, and yesterday quilted all day. Finished sewing the binding on around 9pm. So today will clean up my messy sewing room do some laundry and vacuum the house then sit in from of the tv and do the hand sewing...

    I am waiting patiently (or not) for my postie to bring me a surprise. Ran to the front door this morning when I heard his car horn but he was delivering to my neighbour, how dare he I hope my MB is making its way to wherever it has to be, posted it 2 weeks ago...

    Mirabelle-- THANK YOU!!!! I got my MB today!!! It is great. I like how you did a kaleidoscope effect with the flowers AND all my favorite colors too. I knew you would get the butterfly quilt done in time.

    Anael--sweet twin pictures.

    Honchey--your block looks so fun...great job Ggal!! The heart in the center is a nice touch.
