    DDamsel .... So Great to SEE you were here! Only wish that I had been, when you were! Careful you don;t blow away on us! And where is the photo of the finished old quilt top?

    Anael ... 98 closer than the rest of us! Good for you for starting on the DJ journey ... that's about 1/3 way done already. Would love to see a group shot of your 98!

    CarrieM ... another finish, and even in your colours! No surprise, right? Great job!



    No sewing here again ... for how long?

    Great to see you back DD, come back more often

    Carriem what a beautiful quilt and is that your DD sneaking out at the side of the quilt.

    Anael I thought you were doing Sylvia's Bridal Sampler but Dear Jane too oh my you are taking on a challenge..

    I am just home from the hospital, left home at 5am this morning and got home at 6pm, such a long day so this little chickadee is having a hot shower and off to bed, I am very very tired. Chat to you all tomorrow

    Carrie....beautiful quilt. Such rich colors.
    QuiltE....nice to dip your toe into the past by helping your friend with farm "chores".
    Anael...your Sylvia blocks are beautiful. I started that but they became orphans when I did the FWS although I've not put them in the box that will never be opened. Dear Jane has intrigued me but not enough to get the pattern even. You must really love it to be making the second one.
    DD...good to hear from you. Keep that machine humming!
    Mirabelle....I hope your son is a good patient and lets you into your sewing room.
    QNS....sounds like you're getting foxy again...before all of the meds are gone. This is the best time to get a relapse....when you're feeling better but not totally well. Take care of yourself!
    my shop hop yesterday was to shops farther west into IL than the one my LQS participates in. We opened the doors at the first store and 3/4s of the store was on sale. Really hard to be sensible and save for the next stores when the selection was so good and the price was right! The next store was disappointing but I did get some machine needles and spray baste. Shop #3 had a wonderful selection of fabrics and so many pattern books it was virtually impossible to look through them all. They were holding a Judy Niemeyer class on the mariners compass...36 hours in three days and they would have the entire top done. I looked at their sample and the very center star had a similar bump as those I have done which was encouraging. I guess it never is completely flat just because so much fabric meets there. The last shop was to say the least very unusual. The lady could be officially called a hoarder! I've never seen so much if anything. A couple of the aisles were stacked high with FQ's and two people couldn't pass in them...back up required. The shelves were 3 bolt lengths high and then more was stacked on top to within 6-12 inches of the ceiling. But if you asked her for a specific line or print, she knew immediately if she had it and where it was. It is not necessarily a shop to browse in but with a specific pattern and need, probably the place to find it. For you KT people, she probably has ever fabric that line has ever had. Her shop is The Treadle in Bloomington, IL. Today I get to pet my new fabric and find a place to put them. Things to finish before I cut anything else up.....have a good day all!

    Pictures, GG, please...of that new fabric you are petting!! Sounds like a great trip...guess every location has a "hoader" quilt store. (Not the hoader where I thought I would find it!) Although I finally found my Troy fishing fabric in the Ben Franklin store which surprise me so much I guaranteed myself not to have to be looking for it again!! LOL!!

    Now to try to 'organize' the quilting room so the new machines and tables will fit...which means less boxes on the floor in there...oh dear, I just might have to use some of the guest room floor behind the headboard!! And when the quilters come, they will never want to leave...will be caught in the act of petting fabric in there!!

    That was my thought exactly QNS, pictures please GG

    I just did some petting too I had a friend over here who wants me to make her a quilt. She wants batiks which is ok with me as I love batiks. I pulled a few out and she loved them. One she couldn't have as I need it myself. So we went online and ordered some fabrics. I love it when I can do that
    I think I finally found the right colour for the sashing of my Sylvia # 1!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Anael, plan to meet me in the virtual RV and go on a mission to 'raid' a few stashes of PC riders who go on these FART then do not take pictures to share with us so we can virtual 'pat' their new fabric!!LOL!

    And what can we do about these people who receive their MBs and have excuses not to show the rest of us?? Like maybe the sender could post after so many days of the receiver (who acknowledges the receipt of them) not showing us the MB block????

    Thanks for the nice comments on my quilt...yes that is my youngest DD peeking around, oldest DD was the other "holder". Most of the fabric for my first quilts were either my favorite colors or what my DH calls "Carrie fabric" (meaning small floral prints, like Thimbleberries and Kansas Troubless). I used to make most of my own skirts and those were the types of fabrics I used.

    Karen--hope DS is doing well today. Did you have to go pick him up or did DH do that?

    Ggal--it sure sounds like you found lots of good stuff. You almost described the quilt shop where I work..."shelves were 3 bolt lengths high and then more was stacked on top to within 6-12 inches of the ceiling". The shop is in an old house and she has filled each room, including the bathtub which is her sale fabric. We have several customers who come in and say "If I can't find it at Connie's I don't need it that bad".

    Anael--be sure to show us progress pictures of your friend's quilt.

    QNS--not a bad idea on the MB pictures.

    The fabric is alive! ...Listen to these women petting their fabrics!!! Guilty as charged. Sometimes precious, new fabric just has to be kept to oneself for a while. Fondling my fabric was one of the joys of moving my sewing area. Good luck on rearranging that sewing space, QNS.

    Have my MB done for the month and getting envelope ready to mail. I think **** will like this addition to her blocks.

    GGal--love how you are cautioning our MO friend to take care of herself. So nice to see how much we care about each other. What a fun trip with friends--one of the fun things about checking out other fabric shops is to see how individual each are. We have a shop nearby similar to the hoarder shop--but love to go through the bolts that are organized by color--such a richness of design on every bolt punctuated by an occasional tone on tone.

    I think I'm in DD country today--wind coming up from the south--had 1.7 inches of rain early this morning--had to get up and shut windows. Amazing how fast the house gets stuffy when you are used to wide open windows. Thank goodness DH opened them up before he went out this am Bounced on the lawn mower yesterday, and got some flower beds worked on. Also picked first of the broccoli and a few radishes. This rain has fostered regrowth on the kale I harvested last week. DIL has been instructed to have at the garden produce when we are gone. Hers is a little later than mine (with all she does--imagine that!)--will share some of the broccoli with her.

    QE--aka FWH--Farm Wife for Hire--what a find your friend has in you! Always enjoy the look on DH's face when I say--"Do you w-ant me to run and get that?" especially when life is extra hectic--although not to happy to pay for the $20 gas cap for the one green tractor the other day.

    mirabelle--rest is good. Your recent finishes are so enviable--thanks for sharing.

    Carrie--showed Emily your quilt--yup she loves the jewel tones. Now to see if Gma has some!!! She's ready to get sewing again now that school's out. And promised Elise I would work with her later on.

    Need to get something accomplished. Later, all.

    With a wet, cool day my mission is to get a couple of comfy knit pants sewn to wear for our trip. Have a great fitting black pair that I will copy a pattern from. Love how this particular pair fits in the leg area and "falls" naturally without a lot of extra fabric.

    GrannyQ---you must have heard QNS begging for blocks! Your quilt is going to be fantastic. Great to see the BB all fun and done too.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSS let's do just that QNS

    Carrie, I will but it will take a while before I start. I will show the fabrics when they've arrived.

    GrannyQ, beautiful MB you got from our FWH !

    This is what happened with my peonies after the heavy rain of yesterday

    MiraB ... hope that your son is recovering well, and being a patient-patient! And that your shoulder is feeling a little better.

    GGal
    ... I know all about how hard it is to resist temptation! I keep saying that I am going to, and then this fabric jumps into my arms and says "take me home, free me from this place!" And I listen! So what all did you get at the first place? I know a few of those hoarder shops, particularly in our Menno/Amish area ... made worse when there is no electricity. NEVER go on a dull day, and still terrible on a bright day. As for DSMiraB ... he'd better be a good patient after all the sewing she does for him!!

    QNSue ... you could always lay the fabric on the guest bed, and use it as is and call it a new trend ..... wannabe-quilts!

    Anael ... looks like you had a fun time ... spending someone else's $$. Now if you could only figure out how to get her to pay for your DS fabric! Any luck on Isa's quilt backing yet?

    CarrieM ... your shop is no where near the hoarder shops I am thinking! It is very nicely displayed and so tidy looking! I laughed at the on-sale-bathtub ... an LQS near me does that too! Another shop has several antique baby cribs, for displays ... mainly used to keep groupings together. I love the look they give in the shop.

    GrannyQ ... I'm so happy your MB has arrived! That's the same red as I used in my PC cornerstones. Is it the same as CarrieM used in your star? And what a great finish to your BBs!

    OKSGlad ... it was kind of fun putting that "hat" back on! And to think as I did the errand running, I never even diverted to an LQS! Much simpler than when I was on the farm ... had to figure out how to keep the food on the table while running the roads or in the field! Good luck on the pattern and then making them ... pants are tricky to get fitting just right!

    And what a sad ending to my reading ... to see Anael's Peony, officially Pooped! I hate it when the rain does that to our flowers!!

    Speaking of Which ...... Alberta is having a terrible time with rains and floods.
    JanieW ... sorry, I forget "exactly" where your DS and family are ... and am hoping and praying you/they are out of harms way! I know if you are back home, you should be safe. Gosh, that pics on the TV have been horrendous!



    Mystery MBs ... Wasn't it agreed before that MB can certainly be posted by the sending MB person, if the MB recipient has received and cannot. I not only am enjoying seeing them, but am trying to use them to help me coordinate to previous blocks. Here's hoping that OKSGlad and GrannyQ have photos! Is that all we are missing? Post away, Ladies!

    I haven't been on much lately, my DH has to undergo treatments for the bigC, so I probably won't be on much for quite a while, I'm trying to get some projects done that I can work on by hand and also finish some others. He starts treatments next week. Thank you so much for your lovely comments.

    Anael, we can start right here on our raid!! And pet all my fabric from the Iowa Shop Hop (there were 82, QuiltE, but the BF at Centerville was officially off the list) Made it to eight or so, I think...and the fabric I got from BF during their closing sale! One lady literally stood on their porch and waved us into her parking lot!

    I think, QuiltE, there are a couple of hold outs in posting MBs. {[(QuiltE, Janie is in Red Deer, AL., and I hope she is alright!)]} I like how Mirabelle and GrannyQ showed us all the squares together. They look so special and lovely that way. And I liked GrannyQs BB show and tell, too. Have gotten mine together, need to get it quilted next, love the way they look!! Great job on yours, GrannyQ.

    Mirabelle, hope ds appreciates your TLC. Don't forget to take care of yourself, too.

    Think dh and I are going back to the QBlock and talk to the owners about sewing cabinets and how the machines are setting in each one, before the 30 days are up...then I can arrange the sewing room to our satisfaction, letting us both move around in the tables and sew.

    Beautiful job, GrannyQ. Our prayers and thoughts will be sent to you via a whole virtual RV full of us together. {[(hugs)]} coming your way. Don't forget to care for yourself a bit, so you will not burn out on caring for dh.

    GrannyQ ... so sorry to know what you and your husband dealing with. Good for you for thinking ahead, to some on-the-go projects for you. Perhaps some GFGs? When I had all the waiting-room-sits with my husband, I did a lot of embroidery on printed seasonal vest panels. And where are they now? .... sitting in a box of unfinished embroidery. I've been contemplating cutting them apart and turning them into quilt blocks!

    What a spectacular bursting star you made, GrannyQ ... perfect points and great colour mixes to give the burst effect. What is the block name?



    I forgot to mention ... GrannyQ's MB pattern. Many of us have seen the on point block before as Paths and Styles, which apparently is aka Friendship Block. I turned it on point, then added the corner strips/triangles. Oh, forgot ... also did a multi sq-in-sq for the centre that normally would have been a plain block.

    GrannyQ, I'm so sorry you and your hubby have to go through this.

    Your block is gorgeous! Very well done and beautiful colours!

    QNS, I would love to sit in your sewing room and pet your stash! I'm sure it will take a few days

    I photoshopped my pooped peonies so they don't look so sad anymore

    GrannyQ -

    So sorry to hear about your husbands problems. Prayers for you both!

    Wow, that a great block from QuiltE - don't those four look marvelous together!

    Love your Bonus B wall hanging, that is what I'm doing with mine too.

    The block you sent to Dublb is so pretty. Great use of color and workmanship! Love it!

    Ggal, sounds like you had a fun trip. I think we've all been to a "hoarder's" shop. We went in one and some of the fabric was what I made my prom gown from and that was in 1966!!! Exact same fabric LOL.

    GrannyQ, so sorry for what you & DH are dealing with, it's not an easy trip. Just know all your PC buddies are riding and praying with you both. That's an awesome block QE made for you; your Mystery quilt is going to be stunning. And I love the block you sent Dublb-great color combination and those points--wow!!

    Anael, just showing off the new camera--love the pics of your poor peonies. My neighbor's are looking exactly the same after last weeks rains.

    GrannyQ...beautiful block for Dubib and QuiltE's really does play well with your earlier ones. So sorry about your DH's health. I will be praying for both of you.
    Anael...how creative you are with your camera. Thanks for sharing.
    QNS...hope you can get the sewing tables resolved to your satisfaction. I'll try to catch up with the pictures. It's such a process from my iPad and my camera isn't much better.
    OK...I bought a bundle of FQ's of men's shirtings at the hoarders shop. I loved how your DGD's quilt turned out and will try something similar.
    QNS...at the first shop, I got 10 yards of tone on tone cream, and found three other bolts I could finish for the full 50% savings and about 16 yards in all. Pretty much blew what I wanted to spend for the whole day but it didn't stop me entirely as I was able to find fabrics at other stops which I needed for a couple of other quilts I have planned.
    i planned to mail this Month's MB today but I can't find it. It's been on my design wall for a couple of weeks and I must not have put it with the other blocks I've completed when I laid out another quilt. I'm going to give it over the weekend to show itself before I consider making another one. It has to be here someplace safe where I knew I would look for it. Keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    OMG Gardnergal, isn't that the way it always goes! You put something in a "safe" place so you can find it, and then can't find the "safe" place. LOL I've done that before too!!!
