    When I first saw this pattern & wanted ta adapt it for DD's block I made 4 6.5" blocks & cut a diagonal across each o' those. I then mixrd 'em up ta git an even more scrappy look but the asterisk didn't line up so I made it inta a large trivet for my DSis & made another one for DD.
    Here is the Trivet.

    That is so cool dublb! What a great way to use up scraps. Lordy, I could make type of thing for days on end and not run out of fabric scraps! LOL

    Jeanie, you could send a picture of your RV if you cannot do the front of the house. Or you could sent a tent photo.
    The RV WILL be in the photo! It is parked in our driveway! I can get one in a week or so, I hope, after all these workers leave. They will be starting tomorrow! I hope!

    Thanks, I do see myself makin' more o' 'em in the near future. I like the one I did for DD the most. I like the asterisk lines linin' up better. My DSis just loves hers so it's all good.

    Hello All! Always fun to come catch up on what everyone's doing.

    DD--great MB from Dublb...now that is a good scrappy one!

    Dublb--fun to know you have an April birthday too! It sounds like you had a nice weekend.

    QNS--I too want to wait until things green up a little more and I will email you a picture of my house.

    QE--my kids are homeschooled so, yes, get out a early, but they are done with their books for the year. Just a little history and language arts left. We do start early compared to public schools around here, so time wise it all evens out. My oldest (in HS) will be in school through at least the first week of June...not sure of the exact last day since they have some "snow make up days" added on. When do schools start there?

    CarrieM ... yes, I mentioned when it ended, but not the re-start. They all go back the day after Labour Day (first Monday of Sept). Your poor DD having to go to HS while the other 2 are out for the summer! I'm sure she'll be letting it be known it is not fair ... and that there'll be some good fun, ribbing her about that. Snow days here are factored in at the start of the year. So no extensions at the end to make up for them. And by now the teachers will no doubt be counting the days til they are out for the summer ...... to say the least about the kids doing just the same!

    Sorry Dublb I haven't seen anything like it before, at first glance I thought it might have been an antique bobbin winder. Looks kinda cool though

    Bev, sorry! Happy belated Birthday I hope you had a wonderful day.
    I looked at the gadget but have no idea what it's used for. Never saw it before.

    DD, great scrappy block! When Bev emailed the picture I thought WOW how did she do that? I love it as I love all the MB block's I've seen
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Beautiful picture of the SewGrands to wake up too.

    Sorry, Dublb, don't know anything about the thing.

    Off to get a duck pen home...talk later.

    Ohhhhh, I just want to cuddle with the Sewgrands!!!!They are beautiful!!!

    Yes, I think I'm coming out of my funk....I get vey moody when DH gets bored and complains....his job kept him so busy and now being retired there isn't very much on his calender....not having a car for myself to do whatever whenever is like cutting my legs off...He decided to go to a golf shop yesterday and he dropped me off at a quilt shop that was having a sale...BIG mistake on his part.....spent $87 and got 22 yds of fabric and may go back for more!!!!!! When he picked me up he said "more fabric?" I didn't say a word....

    DD you received a fantastic MB from Dublb...Don'cha just love scrappy!!!!

    Bev, I hope you had a wonderful birthday...I was trying to figure out what that contraption is and i'm thinking that it feeds the sewing machine with the thread somehow..it would have been with one of the old, old platform type sewing machine with a crank....why else would it have the wooden gears inside??

    Mirabelle, that feathered star is the cat's meow...yikes, all those points...We are really doing some beautiful work!!!

    JeanieG..are you having all that renovation done because of the leak???

    QNS...I think what you are going to do with the house photos is a great idea...I just can't figure out what you are going to do....

    QuiltE...I finally figured out what I'm going to do with your FF square....I found something at a thrift shop that sparked my brain...will be learning a new technique to do it....
    JanieW & OK...both of you so busy with planting & gardening...It's been raining here off and on for several days now and the little green frogs here making so much noise they wake me up every morning...they are only about 1.5 x 2.5 inches and they squawk like crows....

    Carriem, how many more MB are due for April???? you are better than me keeping track of them...

    Well, that's what's going on with me right now...Sorry I haven't been more active here...it's not intentional...

    Dublb--that looks like an interesting "label maker." I am tempted to bid just because I antiques all over my house.

    Anael--sweet picture of the twins. I am glad they are letting them be together in the same bed at least some times.

    Honchey--you found a great sale!!! I have just 2 people left to get their MBs...one is you...did you give out your NC address or are you just having mail forwarded??

    Just finishing up school for the day and then heading to the clubhouse for a while before an appt late this afternoon. Working on PPing planes. I did find 6 batiks that will work for the Irish Mist quilt, but will have to buy background fabric and the pattern/book. I work tomorrow so will see what I can come up with.

    I think all of you have seen quilts of schoolhouses, houses, city scenery, barns and silos...each house gets its own block. Can be detailed with curtains and flower boxes or simplify with just the barest of details and pieces pieced together with windows. thought I'd email each of you the proposed block of your house before its release to everyone else in PC by email. That way they stay with the members and not the public who reads our email...it will be up to each individual to whom the pattern is released too...does that make sense???

    Honchey, that sounds like a real quilt store sale. Lucky you that even without a car, you made the sale!!

    I do have Lorraine Stangness book City Streets and Country Lanes to get ideas from also.

    Sorry to report my Six halves and a whole lot more book has disappeared on me. Lucky I scanned the 12 pages of instruction into my computer...is my dh rubbing off on me??? Usually I am organized and he loses everything from eye glasses to car keys to finding anything in his shop. I remember having it at my computer desk...but its not now. I can look, and look or buy a second copy...Yep its right where I left, on the scanner top!!

    Just got back from trip to town--ran a bunch of errands. First stop USPS--MB should arrive on Friday! Sorry it's a little late. The new shuttle in the machine makes such a quiet sound and I think it stitches nicer. In spite of being late on my April block. I'm almost done with my May block--how can that be?

    Happy Belated BD Bev. Sorry you can't buy a rain--how frustrating for all. No idea on your antique.

    DD that scrappy block has such a great setting. dublb. Can't wait to get your name and make a fun block-hmmm thinking--thinking.
    It's SewGrand that Bram and Isa are CuddleTwins! Anael won't be getting any sewing done as she will be glued to the baby screen! Do you hail "God Save the King" like the English do? Will you still celebrate the Queen's BD? I'm surprised how much orange clothing the two Dutch GK's wear! Almost as much as R/W/B clothes.

    With your drawing talents, it will be interesting to see your quilt, QNS. Oh a picture of my house and barn together--not sure if that's possible. Our lane rises up to the house--plateaus off and then descends to the barn. Both buildings are set into the same hillside--just at the opposite side of the hill! Oh and my back door faces the road--I wanted to use my front door--so made it convenient for me.

    I've seen an RV doll quilt here on the board. jillnjo would be happy to tell you where she got the pattern. Tell her oksewglad sent you!

    Kids are in school here until June 5th. They started around the 20th of August and have snow days built into their schedule--just not enough this year.
    Whoa Honchey is not on a fabric moratorium!!! Can't pass up such good buys, now can you?

    I'm going to take a nap--shh I worked until 5:00 AM in the office this morning--had 4 hours of sleep and boy is it catching up. Should be outside as it's supposed to start raining and get cold later on this week. Oh back to the sewing room transfer then. Yeah Later.
    Don't worry spider.

    OK--that is a very cute RV block.

    QNS--you'll have to be sure to include our "virtual RV" in your house quilt.

    I made some good progress on my airplane blocks. Should be able to get them all finished on Thursday. Then I will start working on the propellers...not sure how many of those I will need yet, but they are only 4" finished so should go together quickly.

    Everyone must be busy today! Pretty quiet here...

    I need some advice on Blueberry bushes...The ground under my home and some of the surrounding area was treated for termites...they do that here in my area for all buildings...I planted 2 blueberry bushes 2.5 feet from the house in the back yard....I never thought about the insecticide in the ground before I did that...I won't eat any of the berries now because of that...If I prune them after the fruit ripens and move them would I be able to eat the berries next year or should I just dig them up and throw them in the community compost???

    A couple of photos of the result of my 2 last Farts and of the "Pretty Dresses" quilt in the store.

    There's a total of 40 yds and it averaged out @ $3 a yard....

    I cut out one of the "pretty dresses" ...

    I have a second row of the 5 at Five quilt which will be 4 x 5 for mine....I don't like square quilts...
    I have my May MB done and getting ready for the June list of names...

    I found this fabric months ago and downloaded it to my cp...if you zoom in on it there are quite a few RV's that you can draw if you need to...It's called "out and about"

    Pardon the constant ink and no spacing here ... how was it that you fixed this? I think it was JanRN, that knew how?? Thought I'd switch colours, so you could see easier ... and it wont let me do that either! ..................... Anael ... aaawwwww ... such a sweet and precious picture. You'll have to get DS and DDIL to have their own TeleBaby camera so you can continue o keep an eye! ..............DublB ... no clue what that is ... perhaps post it to the Vintage Machines section? And try some googles with antique wooden label maker? Kind of neat, and sure would be a conversation piece, though for me, I'd have to know what it was. So keep us posted!...............Honchey ... another mini FART! Good for you ... and even for thinking of returning. Really like that large floral and the coleus fabrics. They just have such an unique look to them. Good for you, for deciding to try something new with your/my FFC block! Hearing about your noisy frogs ... I can't wait to open my windows at night and listen to the serenade from all the living creatures. I wonder how you know that you will be getting your MB on Thursday? Your first Pretty Lady is lovely. Will be fun to look at fabrics, and see how they fit together for each Pretty Lady. Maybe you will make one for a MB Pardner? *hint* *hint*!!!!!! ............... QNSue ... you had me laughing with your losing that book. I've done the same, though have even lost something that I used only minutes before! And here I thought you were going to print our photos onto fabric. My goodness, you will have some serious work ahead to create all the blocks. .............. OKSGlad ... so glad you got your machine fixed and it's running well now. ....................... As I said earlier, can anyone help me out This is such an annoyance!

    Sorry can't help QuiltE, I have been chained to the sewing machine all day and not getting anywhere FAST. I am trying to get DD's Card Tricks quilted for her, and I made the stupid decision to cross hatch 1/2 inch in the background of every block. I thought it looked really good in the first block, by the second I was starting to question my mentality and by the third I knew I was certifiably mad. She has created sashing with a 1/2 inch strip in the middle and I decided that it would look good if I quilted circles in the tiny sashing, again I need to be committed I need more caffeine lots of caffeine

    QE--Do you see in the "quick reply box" the two "As" next to each other? You need to make sure the one without a red "x" is NOT highlighted blue. You should just be able to click on it and it will change....I am pretty sure that is how it was fixed by others when they were having trouble.
