    No Nexcare tape here All sorts of Nexcare products but no tape........maybe I can find those clear dots QNS is using.

    I've been practicing the BSR foot for the past two days. I was not too happy with it untill yesterday night. I didn't manage to speed up when I wanted but last night I finally got it. I have to move the fabric faster in order to sew faster!! It's a whole different way of sewing but I think I've got it now

    Jeanie, great idea. I never made a Bow Tuck Purse. Just might make one when I finished some UFO's!

    I'm finally out of bed and can hardly walk...I need to move around even tho I hurt all over...I'm enjoying my first cup of coffee since Sunday...and...I'm working on my MB for April...I'm halfway done and I really like making this block...

    I see everyone is back home from their travels and the photos of those beautiful children put a smile on my face...

    The trip to NC is on the back burner until the 13th of April..I have to have the follow up then.

    Dublb...I hope you get your block soon..should I check with the maker to see when it was sent???

    Jeanie, I also have never made a bow tuck purse...I've always wanted to..

    QuiltE..Are you visiting JanRN in Pa... or just to check out the sweet 16...?

    Time to get up and move around...going to sew a little bit today...

    Awww, Honchey. I am sorry you are going through all that. Be good to yourself. Hopefully stitching a fun block will distract you a bit from your aches. Wishing you to feel better really soon.

    QuiltE , I found the pattern I want to make with the FFC. Now I just need the time.


    Anael, I am thinking of you getting ot see those little ones today. Can't wait to hear about it.

    OK and DD, Loved looking at your pictures of hte beautiful children. I love kids.

    JeanieG, I admire you making bow tuck purses. The idea of it intimidates me.

    Dublb, I hope your block gets there soon.

    I finally finished my April MB and altho it wasn't done with my first choice of fabric because I am inept and made a rookie cutting mistake, I like it.

    I am going down to the sewing room to see if the PC blocks can entice me to work on them.

    Here is a photo of the Bow Tucks I made about 1 1/2 years ago. I just love it! I just throw it in the washing machine when it starts to look dingy, and hand it up to dry. It is still going strong. It is my "fall" purse, and my new one will be summer! LOL I made the straps longer, as I like to wear my purses across my body. The straps don't hurt my shoulder that way.

    Janie - the purse is easy to make!

    Jeanie...what is the name of the pattern maker? I just saw one on ebay and I'm not sure of the manufacturer...

    Honchey - The pattern is by Quilts Illustrated, designed by Penny Sturges. Mine is the Mini Bow Tucks Pattern - it is 11" wide x 10" tall by 5" deep. There is a larger one too. There are tons of photos of the purses here on the board!

    Jeanie, I love your purse and admire all who can make them. I made laptop bags and sold them at Christmas 3 yrs ago. I sold about 25 of them and could have sold more if I'd have made them. No way!! It takes me longer to make a bag than it does a complicated quilt block. Make sure to show a pic when you make your summer purse; I'm jealous.
    Anne, feel better soon. MrJanRn is having dental work Monday--OMG, he is such a whiner when he has a pain. Maybe I'll volunteer to work that day (just kidding!)
    I wish QE--and all of yinz---would come visit me!! What fun we'd have. QNS will have to cater though-she's the cook in our group I think. QE is checking out Sweet16's and Tiara's if she has time after her meeting in her area.

    Did some one say "QNS" cooks; I am ready. Have chuck wagon, will travel!! Meet in the virtual RV.

    :Oh, that lobster was very good today and I stole one of dh scallops. Got to pick up thread at JoAnn's and books at Barnes and Noble, so it was a good day....

    But the raccoons got two guineas last night, day before a Red tail hawk killed one, so they go in with the chickens tonight and hope that protects them better. Will get a few baby chicks tomorrow at Kirksville to join the clucking hens.

    Love the purse. Gotta tackle that job 'cause I promised to make AIL one for her wheel chair/walker. Have pattern, need time.

    Maybe Honchey, you need to trace where Dublb's Mystery block is, and if we all need to ride posse and deliver it to Texas.

    I did it again....2nd reply erased...third time's the charm..here goes again...

    Dublb"s block was mailed on the 25th of March...I hope it's still enroute to her and not lost in the system....

    I sent out feelers for the bow tuck pattern here on the board..maybe someone would like to sell me theirs...

    I finished my April MB and it turned out great...the back looks as nice as the front...I would say more praise about it ...but that's not good manners!!!!

    The Celebrex kicked in today and most of my arthritic pain has disappeared...I have a rather large bruise on my chin/jaw...a friend of mine in the store today asked who hit me!!! She was joking of course...

    Jan, I swear I'm going to visit you this summer...We won't be going to NC when it's just as hot here...Maybe I'll plan a trip to Ohio & chicago to visit DH's family and make a detour along the way...Are there golf courses close by you???

    Jeanie--congrats on getting your PC blocks together into rows. For your quilting, I think if you do SITD around parts of each block it would be ok on the back of your quilt...even if the back is pieced/scraps.

    QE--hope that you have a great trip and get to try out a Sweet 16!!

    I haven't made a bow-tuck purse, but they look like they would be pretty similar to the purses/bags I make with a tie at each end. Jeanie, I like the fabrics you used and look forward to seeing your "summer" one.

    Anael--great job figuring out the BSR! How did the visit to see the GK's go today?

    Honchey--good to see you here today. Hope that as the day went on you felt better and not worse as the day went along!

    Janie--were you able to make any progress on your PC blocks? I know for me the last couple I was thinking "am I done yet?"

    QNS--what good stuff are you making today? Too bad about the guineas. Our DD saw the chicks at Theisen's the other day and wanted to bring some home. She doesn't think about the fact that we would need a *very* secure place for them to be with all the timber around our house, both racoons and coyotes would definitely come to visit.

    I spent my wages today while working. I got the rest of the fabric needed to finish my BB quilt and FFC runner, plus the bag. Oh and I bought some FQs for 2 more MBs. Also I chose fabrics for a shop sample (with the help of another employee)...it will be a wallhanging or table topper.... finishing ~36" square. I started cutting it today during a slow time so should have something to share by the end of the weekend.

    I made a little FART today. First of all had to go to Bernina dealer to order a new bobbin shuttle. The pin that holds the bobbin in place broke off on Tuesday--mine has a plastic pin. So took the broken one down to order a new one. So while there the new owners were have a Grand Opening $2 off regularly priced fabrics plus some other in store specials. I bought fabric to finish the PC Quilt. I have decided to put mine on point so will not need all the blocks from the book. Now I can really pick and choose which ones I want to sew and may take out those blocks that don't "fit" an on point format and use them on the back or in a sofa quilt. The fabric I found is from KT's Harvest Moon line. It is a navy rose like flower with black accents. Perfect for the blacks and blues I have used in the blocks. I will also use this on the 4" outer border. I still need fabric for the side and corner triangles. Since I need less than 2 yards I may find it in "OK's LQS" Here's my EQ rendition of my proposed plan. It will finish about 98 x 111-a nice size for our queen sized mattress.

    Really like that layout, OK. I was thinking of you today while making a MB (NOT yours LOL). I usually work on small blocks, not as small as yours, and I was having trouble with the 12" size. I kept cutting my pieces too small. How do you adjust your thinking to "large"?

    Carrie, if I worked in a fabric store, I'd owe THEM money on payday!

    Anne--yes! DH says there are at least 12 golf courses within a 10 mile radius of our house. Come on down (or over or whichever direction.)

    Jan - I know what you mean about the sizes of the blocks. The 12" just look huge to me, after doing umpteen 6" and 8" ones!

    OK - that quilt is going to be spectacular! I like the way you have it designed!

    Anael - did you get to see the babies? We want photos!!!! Hope you got to hold them!

    OK, on point is beautiful. I love your layout!

    Yes, I got to hold Bram yesterday We've been there a long time as we had to wait for the neonatologist so lots of twins time! Nothing new to report on their condition, today we will find out if Isa is going to need surgery or not. We still don't know how tall they are, they don't measure them this young. I didn't get the pictures yet, when I get them I will post some.

    I started practicing again. FMQ with the BSR. I haven't been FMQ in a long time so I felt I had to start all over again. Here are the first results. In the second piece I tried to fill the rectangle with feathers. I almost did it

    I'm home at last..

    Anael I love your feathers, they are gorgeous, well done. How exciting for you to finally hold Bram, I am sure you gave him an extra special cuddle.

    Check out Quilting on the Square, they have posted their first block for the new BOM, it is going to be a mix of paper piecing and English paper piecing, very interesting.

    Will catch up on more news tomorrow, time for dinner and DH has made his special spaghetti...

    Thanks mirabelle! I'm not nearly as good as you are in FMQ!

    I will check out Quilting on the Square but I don't like EPP!

    Can your DH share his recipe? I would love to know!
