    My MB for JanRN is called "Night and Day" (http://quilterscache.com/N/NightandDayBlock.html).

    My MB for Dublb is called "West Virginny Moonshine" (http://quilterscache.com/W/WestVirgi...hineBlock.html) ...the scraps used in this block were from my 3rd completed quilt made for a friend with cancer.

    I shipped the block to Dublb using a USPS Priority Mail envelope...I put the block in a business size envelope with the address on that. There is a large clear part on the priority envelope so you can see it. I looked up the address using "whitepages.com" and saw that there is a "Dr" on the end of the street address and also added the extra four digits of the zip code (6920)....so added these to the address on the "master address/block info" list...just in case that would make a difference. Also the postmaster said to be sure the envelope has a return address.

    Anael--great to hear the twins are growing and doing well.

    Jeanie--I had to smile at your post about the "little off here and there"...you are probably right that no one will notice. Good choice of fabrics and block for your MB to Janie.

    Honchey--sorry you have been feeling tired lately. I have days like that too. I hope that you enjoy your new membership with the guild. Do they have regular "guild meetings" in addition to your sewing times? I've never had any interest in being part of a guild. I have always figured I would rather spend that time quilting than having people talk about it for 2 hrs. I have gone to a couple different meetings around to hear speakers (like Laurie Aaron Hird).

    Dublb--sounds like your time in Brady was another good one. Glad you like your block....scrappy is hard for me, so I looked for blocks done that way to make it a little easier.

    Janie--I really like the soft colors of your new MB.

    QE--I too got your mini block...it arrived on Saturday...in case you are trying to see how long envelopes take to get to each of us.

    Jeanie, that is a beautiful block that you made for Janie. Love the soft colors and your piecing is perfect. No fudging on that block!

    The block that I made for GrannyQ was just a log cabin that I drafted on graph paper, & I PP'd it. I'll tell ya'll what I did for _______'s block when she gits it.
    OH Jeanie I just saw your PC quilt & it's wonderful !!! A real Pony Club quilt. LOL
    I think I was too tired last night & it didn't register. (I'm so sorry.)

    About MY FFC block I sent ... Looks like most of you have received it already. I'm loving hearing hints as to what some are planning. BTW no need to post a pic, as you are sending it back to me!!! I did post a pic of all the blocks in a little pile before I sent them on their way. I haven't trimmed them yet, though if what you are doing to them you want to remove the paper, that's perfectly fine! You can see the dashed line ... the cutting line will be 1/4" over from that. Also, anything goes for what you do, just or name or embellishments or? ... so long as I can stitch around that seam. Hope everyone doesn't mind my employing you to help me with my project! And as Honchey says ... this is all about FUN!!! And I'm having FUN ... so I hope each of you are too!

    MiraB ... busy week ahead for you with a home and pups squeeky clean! Hope you are taking your PC for Tuesday's Show and Tell!

    CarrieM ... yes, access to your feeddog button, plus for the knee lever. That's one good thing about Janome's table, you know it will fit.

    Anael ... OMG, have they ever groooooooooown!

    CarrieM and DublB ... what a great block! So unique and so nice how all the different fabrics come together.



    Honchey ... and it looks like you're all about FUN with your morning outing! Be sure to get your "homework" done before the next meeting or you won't get that card. Yea, for discounts! Oh dear ... you have some wounded birdies.

    DublB ... found the quilt pattern online. It's going to be nice and work well with focus fabric blocks.

    JeanieG and JanieW
    ........ ooh laa laa ... beautiful block, and oh so perfect!

    Got back to my Out to Pasture quilt tonight ... wanted to get past a certain point before switching machines. So that is done, and now all it needs are its borders. Because its directional, I stopped there, as I was trying to figure the best way to cut and minimize wastage. Yeaaa!!!

    Good Night Ladies!

    Yes, let us know how you like the new machine as I have been looking at it, too. Love Bernina machines; my last three have been Bernina...they carry my name...well, Mother's and mine. She was named Bertha, so Ber - nina.

    Off for the funeral; hearing dh have his problems finding everything, what car to drive with winter warnings out. But temps are to stay in high 30s and low 40s, rivers are far away so only local flooding, if any.

    Stay warm, everyone, stay safe...having fun playing in the quilting areas.

    Oooohhh beautiful blocks Janie and Bev, they are gorgeous...

    Excitement building for QuiltE, she will soon have a new toy to play with

    I have had the most uneventful day, went to the local patchwork club's show n tell and it was the worst one I have ever been to. If I had to look at another set of QAYG placemats I was going to scream. There were about 60 ladies in attendance, 20 from my club and my club showed 20 quilts and in total we saw 24 quilts. I took my camera but didn't even turn it on. I didn't reveal my PC quilt as I want to do that when my club has their show n tell in July. I will be hanging it in the hall on Thursday so I can get a better photo of it.

    I came home and decided to clean out one side of the sewing cupboard, where I store all my ufo's, wip and projects I want to start. I have hung a ufo on the design wall and am going to work on it until I get it finished, cause I only have to applique 9 flowers and put it together, the rest of it is already pieced ready to go.. will take a photo tomorrow and let you see what I am working on. I have also been working on Bonnie Hunters Star Struck for some time and sorted it out and I only have 36 more blocks to make so that is also going to be worked on and hopefully I can get them both finished
    Chat to you all soon

    So exciting QuiltE I'm green with envy!

    QNS, you're in my thoughts! (((HUGS)))

    Mirabelle, you're such a good girl Sorting UFO's and finishing them! Soon there won't be any UFO's left to finish and you have to make new ones!

    QuiltE, no pics of my garden yet because I'm not finished. Still a lot of work needs to be done. When I'm finished I will take some pictures.
    Oh, I got your signature block, that's not the May block I was mentioning. Now to get creative When do you want it back? I know: asap but when??

    Oh, I how I appreciate your hugs, it really helps a heap. Surprise, Sister-in-law (dh sister who hated the aunt and me for all the years we have been married) showed up at the funeral and luncheon at the Catholic church...and could not resist stabbing me in the back in the food line, telling her lies and why she needed an apology for an email that I never sent to her that she claims I did; perhaps only in her mind is it true. Who knows...I never have used the language she claimed was in the email and refuse to carry the anger on that she does. Poor girl needs one's pity that she is that way, to carry anger beyond way beyond reason and sanity. Life is too Short to carry all that anger around and commit an unladylike scene in a Catholic Church...at a funeral luncheon. I never replied, and ignored her and her outburst as much as possible.

    Middle of my back is killing me; dh is worried about the lab reports tomorrow, but we will face the results together, and focus on the next step with a positive attitude. What ever will be, will be. Good news is fine with me.

    It was snowing and raining in Iowa, but not here. Strange how twenty miles makes a big difference. Plum tree in full bloom, guess the frost will freeze it again this year.

    Now what I can I do that is unique and different with one small block from Canada....maybe I can dream up a creative thought tonight.

    Oh QNS, so sorry for the abuse you took from SIL! You did good, girl, to not fight back. It probably made her mad that you just ignored her, and the other relatives probably just "considered the source". My thoughts and prayers will be with you tomorrow.

    Here is my MB for April from GrannyQ! Isn't it wonderful! She said it is the first time she has worked with batik fabric. Thank you so much GrannyQ!

    I've been looking in and how the posts have multiplied!
    Mirabelle...your raffle quilt is so charming. I hope you get a good price for it! Sorry the show and tell went do poorly. Sounds like the other group isn't very ambitious.
    Carrie....I haven't taken pictures but the Wabash River is really high here. What were fields by the river are now lakes by the river. Some homes have been flooded too.
    QNS..praying for you and yours. I hope tomorrow's results are good ones. I've watched on radar and saw the snow tailing after the rain that we're getting and thought if you and Carrie.
    QuiltE....how exciting that you've finally committed to the next level in quilting. That stitch regulator should help.
    Anael...your babies are really growing! I pray that Isa's eyes and both of their lungs repair themselves. I love the blocks that you've been posting. I looked at the pattern and it really intrigues me. I like the way the different size blocks are used.
    Honchey...is it official that we can begin sending blocks once Mirabelle has hers? It seems to be working this month to do it that way. Mine will go out tomorrow to ????? This is so fun! Keep winning at bingo. You will have to make a quilt that Bingo bought!
    Jan...have you done any fun things while DH is gone? Time must be running out.
    Jeanie...your PC flimsy is perfect. What a neat border in keeping with the ride!
    Dubib...what was it that you took the class for at Brady? Sounds like you were with some serious seamstresses.
    MB makers...those that have been posted are beautiful. Each so individual and so well done!
    I had class yesterday. Only 2 more months to go on the BOM we do after class and then we'll take a break for summer. Tomorrow I'm going to test drive the Janome 8200. I really don't "need " a different machine. Which will win...reason or emotions? I'll let you know.

    LOL GG I bet your best side will win. Now is that reason or emotions? Only time will tell.
    The class I took was ta learn the sashin' pattern Stars Above by Sharlyn Craig. She had us cut a focus fabric for this one but ya can use any blocks ya want. She has the directions for 6", 9", & 12" blocks but also explains how ta adapt the coping strips for other sizes. This would be great for sampler quilts. I just would have done the pinwheel parts my own way if I had had the pattern ahead o' time. I hate sewin' on the bias.

    Jeanie, what a great block GrannyQ did for you. GGal, if you need your arm twisted for the new machine, just say that QNS twisted my arm...I am broad enough behind to take the blame...LOL!! Water has gone down here. Not much in the way of water here today...none in Missouri.

    Gorgeous block from GrannyQ , Jeanie.

    I'm fighting a migraine today and losing so will not be on here long.

    Sending you big hugs and good wishes for tomorrow, QNS. You are so clever to handle the bitter SIL the way you did. It is not always easy to take the high road when we are being abused so good on ya!

    Can't wait to hear about the new Bernina, QNS and thinking good thoughts to Aneal for those little ones.

    Now please forgive me as I may have missed a couple of posts QuiltE the fabric you sent with the bonus blocks are we to make something and send back to you ?????... my mind has been distracted a little lately...don't know why just can't seem to focus some days.

    The MB's that are being posted are stunning, what a parade of beautiful quilts we will have

    I'm sad ... packed up my machine ... I really liked it and will definitely miss it.
    I'm excited ... and looking forward to my new machine.
    I'm nervous ... about getting to know this new machine!
    and I'm worried ... that I won't have enough time for my new machine. Work geared up a notch today

    QNSue
    ... So sad what happened with SIL today. Some people are toxic and it appears you did a good job of trying to go into ignore mode. Though I know how hard one tries, it still hurts. Despite her, I hope you had a day of good memories and sharing with your family and friends about DAIL. Oh I bet you'll think of something for that little block ... a challenge in itself, with it's small size! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow and am sending some prayers out for only good news. I hope your BFF is going with you again, to help you thru the good or the less than so. Try to get a good night's sleep before you go. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

    MiraB ... what a disappointing day, though I suspect it was somewhat reassuring to you that you are in the "right" group! And here you had given us the idea that you were not like the rest of us, and that you did not have UFOs.

    Though I have a feeling MiraB's will not have been abandoned as long as some of mine ......... and perhaps others? Or am I alone?

    Anael ... Yup, ASAP ... no pressure! Though the sooner I get all back, the sooner I can complete my FFC! Do whatever you want to it ... have FUN, rememeber!

    GrannyQ and JeanieG ... a lovely block indeed. Congratulations GrannyQ for that first trial with batiks!

    GGal ... Oh go with the emotions! I didn't need a machine either, and really do like my machine, but heck, as everyone told me, you deserve it! What are you sewing on now, a 6600? The 8200 is a sweet machine and some great upgrades from the 6600. You do enough sewing, you can justify it! Or maybe you should look at a Bernina so you too can have a BSR?

    DublB ... I looked at your pattern last night ... are the pinwheels done with HSTs? or are you doing Y seams? If HSTs, do them with the squares with double stitching line. It's on the bias, but not at all like sewing after it has been cut.




    Anael … saw this one last night. Not sure if it’s the same as the one I gave you before. If so, just ignore!
    http://handiwerx.blogspot.de/search?...&by-date=false (May 5th 2012)

    OKSGlad
    … stumbled on this for an idea for a GFG finish. No need for a background fabric!
    http://badskirt.blogspot.ca/2010/05/...ie-quilts.html

    CarrieM … another stumble upon, which made me think of you!

    Oh no!!
    That FQ is the FFC fabric (FFC=Fabric Friends Challenge)
    I issued a challenge to all that have received it, to make something for themselves and do whatever their little ♥ desires! Show creativity and originality. FQs have gone out to 20 QB friends, all the PC Ladies, and a few others.


    The send back part ... you probably have not received yet.
    For my FFC, I decided to do a table runner or topper using the old fashioned Friendship Blocks, where people sign a block. You might remember seeing my pile of blocks in an earlier post. I sent one to everyone in the FFC in a regular letter sized envelope last week, asking you to help me with my FFC project. You can simply sign it, or adorn it with ??? ... and then send it back to me!

    If I'm only clear as mud ... ask me questions!

    Good News!!!!

    Spring MUST be here!!!!

    .... remember that robin that has built a nest at my back door, the last two years.

    She now has her new nest well on the way, once again, perched on top of my evergreen wreath, that now has spring flowers amidst, and complete with mini lights. I think it must be the electricity that draws her. Next thing, she'll be wanting running water installed.

    Looks like the finishing touches are going to be done, tomorrow.
    Then the Home Tweet Home sign can be hung for another season.
    And the babies can arrive!!!!



    What the heck ... What's one more post from me?

    QE--I look forward to seeing your "out to pasture" project. How exciting that you get your new machine tomorrow! Did you order a new table for it or does it come with one? Too bad you don't live closer or I would just buy your table!! Thanks for the link to the homemade one...I have considered doing something like that as well. Fun to hear about your robin returning. We have a robin building in a tree outside a living room window. My younger kids were watching her last week and said something about "she better keep building...she's too big to fit in that little nest." Then a little bit later her mate came and added to the nest.

    Mirabelle--too bad the big group of ladies didn't have more to show. Sometimes uneventful days are good ones! Last year I sorted my UFOs, WIPs and fabric for new quilts yet to be started into tubs. It is nice to see at a glance what's there and what I want to work on next.

    QNS--sorry you had the added stress today at the funeral. I have a spot in the middle of my back that the muscles get tight due to stress (at least that is what my doctor told me (the one who does the dry needling). I find that a heating pad is helpful. Praying for your appt tomorrow...good to know you will have DH there with you.

    Jeanie--you got a pretty MB from GrannyQ (great job GQ!)

    Ggal--I look forward to hearing what you think of the 8200. I got some new pictures of the river yesterday...it was higher than last week...no more fence can be seen and the picnic tables are under water. The geese were there last week too. I am assuming they usually nest somewhere near the ramp and it is like they are waiting for the water to go down again.

    Janie--I feel for you! Praying the migraine doesn't last long and you can get back to regular life.
