    Mirab, I feel your pain. I made my May block, lots of pieces but for some reason the quilting gods were smiling on me. Every point was perfect. Every seam lined up. The colors were awesome. I've never made a more perfect block. I put it on my design wall to stand back and admire it along with my April block. What the %^%$#???????? It's only 10 1/2"!!! I grabbed the wrong size pattern (had printed it in 12", 10" & 6"). Didn't know whether to laugh or cry--I know the quilting gods were snickering because I'll never do another "perfect" block in my life.

    Still working extra days, so I'm sorry I haven't been here to comment a lot but wow! There are some beautiful pics here. Jeannie, such a beautiful baby and how blessed you are. I love looking at everyone's projects and pics (including ducks LOL) and marvel at all of them.

    Aren't we a bright pair JanRN My next plan is to draw it up on graph paper and paper piece it. I really liked the block and thought it would be perfect for my May victim I was going to start quilting the raffle quilt tomorrow but I think I will try and get this block done as it will haunt me if I don't. I know there is plenty of time but I would rather get it done now and then not have to worry about the deadline creeping up on me.

    Dublb--your house in Brady looks very inviting.

    Mirabelle and Jan--I am so sorry that happened to you. I was printing a pattern for a MB yesterday and had to print it 4 times to get it big enough even though it said it was a 12" block. I was thankful for the 1" test square so I could check that before sewing.

    Mirabelle--fun to know in advance you get to go to a retreat and that DD gets to go too!

    Jan--maybe you can frame your "perfect block" and hang it for encouragement that you *can* do it!

    It is chilly here this morning with a dusting of snow, supposed to get up to 51 today and 69 tomorrow with more storms. My nephew will be here shortly. 11yr old DD enjoys keeping him occupied so I should still be able to sew and/or organize some today. I was able to get my April MB done yesterday. The friend who I host retreats with came over yesterday and we worked on a sample for our next retreat gift...this way we can get started now and not be doing them a month ahead.

    Got the house picked up this morning, but better get off here to wash dishes and put clothes in the dryer.

    Mirabelle and Jan, I'm sorry it didn't turn out the way you wanted it. Jan, sure you will make another perfect block! Like Carrie said, frame it, use it somewhere in your living room so you know you can do it

    Yes QNS, Miss April has been done for a while, I'm waiting for Miss May to judge So bring it on ladies

    Bram and Isa both are in Enschede!! I visited them today. They're growing and growing (in weight). Bram still is small but he's doing the best he can. They're 12 weeks now! They will have to stay in hospital for another 6 weeks though but that's ok.

    Anael--how exciting that the twins are closer now. It will make the next 6 weeks easier on all. I need to get my MB pressed and will be sending you a picture later today.

    Did you notice ... MiraB took us into the 3000's!

    MiraB ... I can feel your frustrations on the size issue! Go ahead and screeeeeeam! You're thinking like me, getting the May MB done, before to other projects.

    JanRN ... maybe you could improvise on that block? Add a border to it, and let it float? Or perhaps there was method in your madness, so you could have that block all to yourself!!!! No fun to have to work so much ... no time for your Sweet!

    CarrieM ... curious what your next retreat gift is? Have fun with your Lil Nephew!

    Anael ... How wonderful that you have the SewGrands so close to you now. Lots of opportunities for Grandma Love! Remember, time flies ... they'll soon be home. Another great spring quilt. I love the colours, and particularly that shade of green. Great quilting, and look at the echo work. Priceless cartoon! I like the way that woman thinks!!

    Honchey ... whew! Glad you showed up ... I was about ready to send the Posse out to look for you!!!

    And now, I'm trotting off to do some sewing!
    First some strip blocks I cut out last night, and will go to gether quickly.
    Then a start on my FFC ... will tell you once, I start, in case I change my mind!!!

    OBTW ... I looked out the window a little while ago ... there was s-n-o-w ... just like a snow globe day!
    Mother Nature .... we are tired of your warped sense of humour!

    One Canadian heard from that I am happy to hear from; now where is Janie?? Check your PO box in about a week, 'cause that card is comin' back to you QuiltE...mailed from my hometown today.

    Anael, that quilting looks pretty good to me...but then so does most of the 12 inch, that suppose to 12 1/2 block...on this mystery block ride..the scan 14 and the real full 1/4 seams in the blocks always get to me.

    Had to make a quick trip into town to get feed for the little chicks and ducks; the ducks have doubled in size and are happily swimming in their little pool...at a week old.

    QNS, it took me quite a while before I knew what a scant 1/4 seam was. I still don't get the concept. Why can't they use the full 1/4 seams? I'll never understand!

    Today's picture with Isa holding her for the first time!

    Yes, I agree with QNS, Anael! Isa has really grown. She looks so much bigger in your arms! How far do you have to go to visit with the twins now?

    Got my MB information for May. Lordy, is it going to be May already! Where in the world did April go!

    Anael that is a beautiful photo of you and Isa together. She has grown so much and how wonderful that they will be closer to you, I am sure that will take some stress off your DS and DDIL.

    I am off to the sewing room to attempt another block for May Have a great day everyone

    Anael ... Oh such a beautiful picture of the two of you. 12 weeks ... imagine! I hope the SewGrands can have "together" time in their new hospital.

    Anael--very nice quilting! Great picture of you and Isa too.

    Today I got the rest of my BB's quilted, tomorrow afternoon I hope to get the borders on. I also got an armrest cover started for DH. Had fun watching my nephew play...his mom should be here by noon to pick him up tomorrow.

    QE--for our next retreat gift we are making these: http://badskirt.blogspot.com/2010/11...-tutorial.html We got a good deal on some of the spring form buckets and will cover in favorite colors of each person. We are also going to sew in an elastic loop to keep them closed when not in use. Now that we have made one the others should go together much easier!

    Honchey--glad you made it safely and can get online. I got my May MB info so will be starting on that this week.

    I have slowly been choosing patterns and fabrics for everyone so I can work ahead as I have time or at least be ready when I get each name.

    Great buckets Carriem they should be well received by everyone.

    Jumping for joy !!! I finished my May MB, 1 ended up in the rubbish bin, 1 ended up in the orphan block pile and the third one is on the design wall, (with a couple of others) I even dreamed about mystery blocks last night or was that a nightmare so tomorrow I can start quilting the raffle quilt and won't be stressing over blocks... Have e-mailed Anael for her approval, here's hoping she likes it..

    Jeanie and Karen both got their approval on the MB's

    Great buckets Carrie! I just saw the tut, I've never seen such buckets here.

    QuiltE, I don't know if the twins will have together time in this hospital. The whole setting is totally different, it's not like in Zwolle where all babies are in the same room and lots of nurses. Bram and Isa had their 'own' nurse there. Here 1 nurse has to take care of 4 babies, not all in the same room.

    Here's my table topper with quilt inspector No binding yet!

    Thank you mirabelle. I totally forgot where I got the pattern from. I was afraid there would not be enough contrast but once it's finished it's ok. The binding is on, I didn't do it by hand, it's way to heavy so I just sewed it on The green fabric is Christmas fabric
