    Carrie, I'm doing my Christmas Rosie. It's only 12 blocks (odd size to fit on back of couch). Thought I'd start with the smaller one and work my way to the larger batik one. Thanks all for your suggestions and encouragement on the FMQ; my friends laugh and tell me I'm too anal to FMQ. I think they're right.

    Have an interesting FART on Saturday. We're going to a fabric outlet. Have any of you ever been to one? I checked their website and they show name brand fabrics. Wonder about the quality of the fabric--would it be seconds? I need backing for 2 projects so I hope it's okay. It will be fun no matter what. And then I'll have to FMQ some more projects--oh no!!!! LOL.
    First ya can FMQ! Start doodelin' durrin' all your free time. The class I took had us zig-zag from left ta right, about an inch wide, move over & do it again. Somethin' about that seemed ta give me the control that I needed. When I practice it I do that first & away I go. I want ta point out that I don't draw very well, but can do some very nice simple designs. I'm learnin' ta doodle a bit now too. Stipple is way over my head. I have ta have a design.

    Hi All,

    You are wonderful for making a quilt show for me, but I really had to laugh. I asked where to find the quilts about 1 1/2 weeks ago or so (?), and I finally found my post 25 pages back! LOL You all have the best community here!! I'm having a great time seeing them, but as usual, I'm behind and it will take me awhile to catch up. But what fun I will have doing it!

    Anael--Great Day Care Quilt! I'm glad the children are getting a good use of it.

    Carriem--I loved your Medallion Daybed quilt. I'm sure that it looks wonderful in your room.

    Mirabelle--Thanks for showing both of your quilts; I especially liked the American Rose fabric for the Pony Club.

    The Quilt Show continues... Did I tell you how blessed I am?

    Hey Mercyland! I was outta town when ya were here a week & a half ago. I'm havin' a hard time catchin' up myself. I'm so glad ta see ya here. I only have about 30 blocks done but did finish one more at my retreat! I messed up & bought my fabric before my book came in & choose patriotic fabric. I'm makin' several subistute blocks. I can't tell ya how much I have learned while makin' this quilt & will continue ta learn as I slowly complete it. Thank ya so much for teachin' me so much.

    Hi Laurie!! Now you know why we have to keep track of this thread on a daily basis!!

    Yes I like the crazy cow idea too, but have come up with a very sedate table runner with a little twist. The border fabric was gifted to me from another crazy cow lady it has a cream background with a Holstein cow as well as other dairy items in reds and blacks. The barn is from the Quilty Barn sew along project from

    http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/...-tutorial.html

    I modified an EQ schoolhouse block to fit the 14" block format that the barn is in. Oh the cruel twist is the small 6 1/2" blocks are contrary wife and contrary husband!!!!! I know both my friends have their ups and downs like any other married couple (thinking of another 47 yo marriage!) so makes a perfect pair don't you think?
    I choose the 8 point star for the corner blocks as they have eight children. May change the star to a plain 8 point as these are 4" blocks. Will finish 23 x 41Name:  L&G  50th.BMP

    Think I will put a cow fabric in the center of the barn mini quilt.

    Mercysland it is us that are blessed to have you to create such beautiful quilts for us to make.

    I just have 3 more rounds of the Courthouse Steps blocks and I can start putting my DS's quilt together, hopefully will have something to show on the weekend.

    I am spending Friday night with DD so won't be home until after lunch on Saturday.

    Have just finished portioning up the Pea and Ham Soup and it tastes so gooooddd.. that will earn me brownie points with DH, its his favourite soup.

    Thank you all my dear friends. Today's the day. I didn't hear from my DS yet, they're on their way to hospital. I hope he will call once the procedure is done.

    Another finish....

    Whilst it is not a quilt I have been working on it for the past few months and it has kept my fingers busy at night. This is for DD and I will give it to her on the weekend. DS already has his.

    Now to finish the binding on my lap quilt...

    OK--I like the layout you came up with for your friends. Good use of the different blocks to represent the family.

    Karen--yummy soup and warm afghan. My great-grandma taught me to crochet. I've done lots of scarves and then tiny lace for trimming clothing, handkerchiefs. She made all of the GGKs afghans like that with the zig-zag; it is still holding up well.

    Anael--still praying for Isa...and those of you waiting.

    Off to work today...

    I am staying an extra night with DD so am leaving first thing in the morning and won't be home until Saturday, will catch up on all the news then.

    Football news, we lost the first game (one eyed ref) but two more to be played yet...

    Carriem I still have afghan rugs I made more than 20 years ago, I have a beautiful rose one that I don't use that much and I made a pansy one but I sent that to a friend in Hungary.. my hands ache too much now to do too much.

    OK....well thought out runner. It's the size that will probably be used too.
    Anael....praying....
    JanRN...I too think that you can FMQ. You're trying too hard to be perfect and tense up from your shoulders down through your hands. Try some circles concentrating on the relaxing part and not what it looks like and what it looks like will be less jerky
    QNS...roosters make wonderful meat and your ducks keep you in eggs. Have fun on the shop hop.
    carrie....enjoy work today.
    Mirabelle...one eyed refs are always to blame aren't they. Enjoy your time with DD
    my DH's grandson is here today to help clean up the shed. I got a call that Easy Street is quilted so will pick that up this afternoon. Did get another row on the class project and need to cut some more pieces. QB is acting up today. See you all later.

    Awesome news Anael--yay for Isa!!

    My co-worker's son was in a bad motorcycle accident about 6 wks ago and his friends are having a benefit dinner & auction. Local businesses and others donated items. I made this Steelers wall-hanging to donate. Don't think they'll get much for it; it will be mostly his 25-30 year old friends but hope it brings a few dollars.Name:  Steelers Table Topper.jpg

    Jan you'd be surprised how well it will sell--nicely done. Lots of Steeler's fans in your area? Dumb ?, right?

    Great news on Isa, Anael! I hope she is comfortable, poor little girl. She has been through so much. Where are Bram and Mick - home with Mom?

    Really neat Steelers wall hanging Jan. You did a great job!

    Jeanie, Bram and Mick are at my DDIL's parents. My DDIL was with Isa today. I guess they will be home right now and have to go back tomorrow.
    I hope all goes well tonight, if there's any bleeding things go wrong and she will still go blind on her right eye the doctors said. That's why she has to stay. She's not allowed to lay down for hours after the procedure.

    Anael—I loved seeing the pictures of the babies and Mick that you posted a week or so back. My prayers are
    with you all, too.

    Mirabelle—Beautiful purple afghan. I'm sure your daughter will love it.

    dublb—You are not the only one who learned a lot from sewing the quilts. Me, too! Samplers are so much
    fun.

    janRN—Loved your Steeler wall quilt. (I'll hide that comment from my Green Bay Packer family I think it will raffle for more than you expect. I went on my quilt tour tonight and saw your PC quilt with the baby blocks on the beautiful blue border. It came out great!

    oksewglad—Yes, I love all the things that this group shares--truly. I enjoyed seeing your PC work in progress. I like playing with EQ, too.

    QuiltE—You made a wonderful PC quilt. I really enjoyed the addition of the extra blocks. My personal favorites are the pig and the cow. Thanks for posting your FW quilt, too. I especially liked the rich colors of the green and tan, and your quilting is simply beyond gorgeous!

    JeanieG—Please tell me about the border on your PC quilt. Are those solid (not pieced) blocks of fabric, I can't quite tell? However you did it, I loved how it came out.

    Thanks so much to all of you who posted your quilts again for me to see. I enjoyed my tour very much. I hope that I didn't miss any quilts, but if I did, please tell me.
