    Anael, if you use the school block, trim all the way around, and put a 'square' around it, like a square within a square and it will sit on a point and look natural.

    Hi, April, welcome back!!

    Well, it had not rained all day until it was time to put the little ducks, chickens, older ducks and guineas into their houses. Dh could not get the little ducks in without a light on in their hut, so I ran out without a jacket or coat. We both got soaked with rain putting all the fowl to bed...I was blinded by rain, rain running across my glasses made it impossible to see. Took off wet clothes (blouse & jeans), in the kitchen, streaked for the bedroom & a dry towel ..not a 'pretty' sight, but funny! LOL!!The Man upstairs has a sense of humor!!

    I have started a list of those who want emails w/MBs and will send Thursday....if anyone else wants them let me know The easiest way will be sending an email with each person's blocks. That way you can just save the attachments where ever you want. I have a folder on my desktop called "MBs" inside is a folder with each person's board name where I save the blocks.

    I look forward to seeing the other blocks received...if only everyone could find their cameras and cords at the same time. I like my laptop because I just put the SD card in the front...no cord needed!

    I have 2 sides of the last border to put on the LC quilt and then binding. I spent much of my afternoon helping DD and my BF with their quilts. I never get as much done with others in the clubhouse, but that is ok! I am happy to help and visiting is good too.

    QNS, I think if I trim the block there won't be enough schoolhouse left. I don't need it anyway, I have enough blocks already. So if there's one who needs a schoolhouse block you can have mine

    Yep, a triangle on each side, turning it into a square on point. But it would be a bit bigger. No cough or sneezes this morning after Mother Nature's downpour last night which is good news.

    Will find time to post the MB this morning. If we all posted by a certain date, they would all be together. Just a thought. Off to do dishes and be Susy Housekeeper, then thin some stash in the quilt room...a lot!! Haven't looked at some of it since we moved here. And sorting the pieces into light, medium and dark for scrappy work...or not. Sigh. It will take me days to do it all. One step at a time.

    Here's my Grandmother's Choice in progress. I don't think a schoolhouse on point will look nice in here.

    Probably, you are correct, Anael. You do have an excellent eye in what goes together.

    Dh is nagging me to clear the sewing room so he can sew since it rained soooo much here. I feel like dragging my feet, but will probably try to keep him happy like the good wife I am!! May everyone have a good day.

    Anael, sending lots of {[(hugs)]} to the SEW GRANDS,

    Thank you QNS!
    I just got a call from my DDIL, Isa's eyes are going to be treated (right word?) so they don't have to worry anymore about going blind.

    You've got some beautiful blocks together. DD made you a great one too! Are you going to keep your Dh happy?
    You never know what you'll find when clearing the room

    I have allergies to dust bunnies and elephants, so I never dust...so no safari/hunts in the house.

    Dh stormed out to the garage to work on it (which is worse than my house) after I 'sympathized' with him when the tall plastic glasses fell back out of the cupboard where he had jammed them into the cabinet. Some days you know you are not going to win.

    Good news about Isa's eyes, Anael.

    Dh is mad at me for questioning the doctor yesterday if the medicine he is on is causing the short memory loss; he is almost to the point of denying that it happened. It is what it is...we have to work with what we are given. We are blessed in many ways, and need to count them and let a Higher Authority take care of our troubles and worries. To trust can be very hard in the middle of a downpour. Everything happens for a reason beyond what we can see. What will be, will be.

    Anael, love the colors in the quilt you're doing; and I agree the schoolhouse block just doesn't seem to "belong". Great news about Isa.

    QNS that's a great block from DD. They all look so nice together. And I'll take some of that rain--we had a few drops yesterday and it's supposed to be 90* for the next few days.

    Keep your fingers crossed ladies--today is the final inspection on my mother's house and if all goes well we sign the papers tomorrow!!!

    Anyhoo ... to make it short and sweet .............

    Great to see the new block QNSue .... Well Done DDamsel!!! Neat fabric with the cups and saucers and teapots!

    JanRN ... sorry about missing your demo, I know how you looked so forward to it. Hope the benadryl has done what it should and that the adjuster appt was productive. XXXXXXfor the inspection and closeXXXXXX

    Anael ... glad they are taking action for Isa ... what? when? You;'re going to have to get [email protected]! I bet they are all SO happy to have the twins home ... though exhausted from the new stress.

    ♥Izabella ... Welcome Back! So good to have you back on the dustry trails with us. Prayers and wishes for you that all is uphill from here!

    CarrieM ... Thanks for the offer, though I am OK, as I have been saving the blocks in a Word doc. Anyone who wants it in this format, just let me know and I'll email it to you.

    Did everyone see JeanieGs, great FFC project?

    QuiltE, when? I don't know and my DS and DDIL don't know either. What? Laser treatment. TeleBaby @ Home would be great but I guess it's a bit expensive

    Anael--very pretty quilt. Good news for Isa too!

    QNS--sound like you are busier than usual. Fun block from D_D...great job! Did DH make any progress in his garage today?

    Jan--praying all goes well and the house is final tomorrow.

    I've sent about half of the MBs out by email....will send the rest in the morning.

    Work today wasn't too busy...finally a day without rain (until this evening), so I am guessing many were in their yards. We got cleaning done for the All Iowa Shop Hop starting Saturday. Is anyone besides QNS thinking about hitting some shops? OK? GrannyQ?

    I am taking my MIL to a family reunion on Saturday (DH is on-call for work). We are leaving early so we can go to at least one quilt shop.

    On Saturday, we will be in Des Moines and hit those quilt shops first in the Iowa Hop. DH will have his sewing lesson on the new 550 for 'fun' stuff; that's how the shop called it. bf and I will 'shop' if high water allows us go or her dd doesn't birth her daughter.

    Carrie, sent you the update on mine; will check the others closer later.

    Everyone have a good day; my cell phone died....might have been 'cause I was out in that downpour of rain helping dh put the young fowl to bed and it got wet then. Will see. So off to town I go.

    QNS--sometimes if you take the battery out of a cell phone and let it dry out for a day or so it will work when you put it back together...worth trying if you have to get a new one anyways.

    A little house cleaning and then heading to the clubhouse to finish the LC quilt...will post picture later today. Might work on a MB before going back to the airplane quilt....should be able to get that quilted/finished next week.
