    For those who like the challenge of paper piecing there is a site http://www.paperpanache.com that you can sign up for Linda's newsletter every two months when she offers one or two freebies. Dh likes her site.

    OK--sounds like you had a busy day yesterday. Helping pick out fabric is my favorite job at the quilt shop...like you said get to pick out fabric and someone else spends the money. Hope the cows stay where they are supposed to!

    QE--congrats on getting sashing on and rows together too!

    Mirabelle--great job getting the binding on AND making MB progress for April too.

    QNS--I looked at that pp'ing site before. Some fun patterns. I like the one of the fish on the home page. Might have to get that to make my son a wallhanging.

    Dublb--your cat pictures make me smile. Thanks for sharing.

    To answer QNSue's and GGal's Queries ... the completed PCs are at these post #'s
    MiraB ... #38, #43

    CarrieM ... #2006

    QNSue's FWS ... #1378, #1382

    Anael ... I know you posted yours to some of the earlier threads. Perhaps you;d re-post them here? Please?

    I'll try to keep track of the post #'s for all the PCs as they arrive onto this thread!



    I've been wondering all day as to whom got MBs today!! .... only QNSue?
    QNSue and JeanieG
    ... what a lovely block! And so perfect coming into spring!

    MiraB ... looks like you did not get your MV Will you be able to keep your DH home for Easter and your DDs birthday?

    QNSue ... You'll be feeling all springy with your new hair do! Not to worry, you'll get those blocks together. Besides your PC is much bigger than mine ... a lot more blocks! Actually you are ahead of me ... as my whole quilt is smaller at only 8x9 blocks. Besides, you have other things to deal with, as in DH to feed and water and keep humoured! (sorry MrQNSue, just said in fun!). Your window frames really are looking 3-D! Great idea to do it that way. Thanks for sending me over to the PP site. I've been there before, and used some of their freebies, but never noticed their newsletter. Signed up, and will be good to get the new freebies as they are ready.

    GGal ... Thanks! I'm looking forward to tonight and hoping to see some more good progress! Not to worry, you'll get back to your Leader/Ender project!

    CarrieM ... Thanks! the sashing doesn't take so long when you start with more than 1/2 done. With the blocks sewn together in rows, it won't take too long to sew the rows together ... I think! I almost dread the borders ... just the length, and then challenge of getting them smooth and wave free! That fish would make a great guy quilt ... or blow it up for a large centre. (MiraB ... for DH?)

    DublB ... cute cat pics! You really have everything nice and convenient for working from one machine to the other.

    I only used 8 PC blocks so it's hardly a finished PC quilt!

    Bram had an off day today. His heartbeat was very irregular so the nurses called the neonatologist to have a look. She ordered an ECG. I guess nothing serious because we didn't hear anything. Isa is doing ok. She's now 3.97 lbs! Bram is now 3.44 lbs! Today I heard him cry for the first time Isa is still having problems with the vocal cords but that's getting better.

    QNS, your PC quilt is going to be lovely! I was very curious to see how all your colorfull blocks would turn out together but it's really beautiful
    Don't you love your Honey Bee block?

    Bev, beautiful kitty!

    Jeanie--great job on QNS's block!

    QNS--your sashing looks really nice and you are going to have a beautiful quilt.

    I made great progress on my quilt today...all 4 rows are quilted together and the quilting in each of the 12 blocks is finished. Tomorrow I will start putting on the borders...a narrow one, then piano key, then wide one. *Should* be able to get them all done and then binding on Thursday.

    I found this wonderful Enlarging/Reducing Scale for Patterns and wanted to share.

    http://www.thequiltedsnail.com/scale.html

    This works great when reducing the 12" blocks down to the 6" (or any size you want). I am almost finished with my 6" Honey Bee block that matches the one I made for QNS.

    Sorry to hear about Bram's setback Anael, hope he is feeling better.

    Dublb - your old Singer reminds me of the one I have. It is a Singer 503A. I bought it new in 1962! I used only that machine until four years ago when I began quilting again. I got my little Brother, then two years later got my Baby Lock, which has a much wider throat so I have more room for quilting.

    I am still "looking" at my PC quilt. Mine is smaller than most of yours, as it has five blocks across and seven down. Once I get this sewn together, then I will pull the rest of the PC blocks (those without the horses in them) and get started on that one. I have a number of UFO's I'm also working on.

    Grocery shopping all finished, just have to pack everything away and where am I, on the computer saying hi

    Dublb what cute kitties, reminds me of when DH and I used to breed Persians. Such a long time ago

    Carriem I have finished April's MB I am working on another one for ?????? just getting a head start. When I see a pattern I like and it fits the guidelines I will make it.

    QNS you have made great progress on your PC, well done. I love the Honey Bee block so cute.

    JeanieG I have some of that pink fabric you used in the Honey Bee block, so funny that we could have the same fabric.

    QuiltE DH is home on holidays for 3 weeks, he has so much leave to take he could stay home for 6 months (heaven forbid) 3 weeks is long enough for him

    Anael praying that Bram continues to get stronger. I love your quilt..

    Now groceries to put away and then I have to take a pic of the butterflies...

    That's a Honey of a block to go with a of a quilt. Sounds like everyone's getting their blocks. Mine should reach ____ tomorrow if the Postman gets it right! QNS Even in the smallish picture one can see the 3D look of the sashing. It's so fun to watch how the settings unfold. Each so different and unique.

    I bookmarked the chart!!! That'll help alot! T!hanks
    That machine is the 401A that I got ta workin' last month. If ya look there is a 500A sittin' under the cabinet that the embroidery machine is sittin' on. In that cabinet is DH's DGM's Singer 128-15. It is missin a motor. I have got ta git another motor for it. I love sewin' on it. I sold a Singer 66 at my last retreat 'cause it is very heavy & I didn't want ta carry it anywhere again. I didn't even want ta pick it up from the floor ta sew w/it. I also have a Brother that is a 15 clone. It is blue! I have a childs singer that is the same color as the 401A. I have a Kenmore that is 158. I love ta FMQ on it. I think it was made in the early 60's. Then I have 2 modern Singers (Less than 8 years old, both bought new.) I have a Brother that my cousin gave me I think it is about 15 yrs old. Finally 3 cheap Brothers that I have bought in the last 3 years. I have given away several machines in the last few years. My sewin' machine guy knows me by my voice on the phone.

    Anael ... yes, that one ... and I think there were 2 or 3 more that you used your PC blocks in.
    Look at how much they've grown. As you said, the ECG must have been OK, with no further reports. Hope so!

    Yes, DDamsel ... find that camera and shoot that block!

    CarrieM ... your head must be feeling better, with all that progress! Yea, for you!

    JeanieG ... a handy chart indeed! I have a similar one right at my printer/copier and have used it a lot. Oh how I love this new printer for those sort of tricks! Or for reducing before printing.

    *picturing* OKSGlad with wine glass in hand as she plays board games with the Grands! We're seeing such a different side of her when away from the farm!!

    MiraB ... you'll have to send DH on holidays to get your space back! (aka send him fishing! )



    Shuffled those blocks, and now am already seeing bunches of too much blue together ... too much open yellow ... too much blocky-blocks together. And it is so patchy ... I think a wider sashing would have been better on the 8" blocks. arrgggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
