    Well I printed out the four blocks from QOTS. I even printed the PP Pattern six of each page for them on newsprint. I made a chart of the colors used in the first four blocks. It looks like she is consistant in the white on white background and the yellow corner triangles. I am trying to get a feel for what fabrics to use. I have a Eleanor Burns Fat Quarter Collection I have had for ages, I thought I might use that, but looking at it just now, I don't think it has enough variety of colors in it. It is mostly greens and pinks. Humm! Her most used colors in the first four blocks are purple, green and yellow.

    No pics of the twins, I'm sorry. I had my camera with me and when I wanted to take pictures I found out the memory card was still in my cardreader at home

    Excuses excuses Anael, really you were just too busy giving them lots of loving, changing diapers and enjoying the moments of sheer bliss and wonderment that these two precious angels are here with us...

    JeanieG ... don't worry about the colours from QOTS. Go with what you'd like to use! I was envying you yesterday when I was thinking that Fusions would be perfect for this project. Get out all your bits and pieces!

    OKSGlad .. you'll change your mind! And if you don't we'll change it for you, "cuz we like YOU!". These QOTS would be a great "break" in the midst of working on your FWS and PC!

    Anael ... OOPS!

    There is lots of LOVE on this site, so you gotta stay in there with us...all of you. You make it complete.

    No, no colors chosen here. Still working on MBs. First shipment of some are due to go out tomorrow, others on next Saturday. July is flying by super fast, it seems to me.

    No more meds. My head is clearer. My mind can think its usual pace. PB&J for breakfast and I am tackling my books taking over my bedroom....again. Time to type them up and donate to the Public library again...I think...four big boxes full...or more. Then I can put boxes of fabric in my bathroom; what an excellent suggestion, QuiltE. Wednesday is cometh, and will pick up sewing tables then. JoAnn's has 40% off coupon. Will report later how I chose to use that.

    Togetherness....Ahhhhhh!!! since August 4, 2010...it will 3 years in a few weeks and at that time I was worried about "keeping up"!....little did I know!!!

    I have to send the community leader a draft of the new thread we want to start....What will we call it???
    QOTS "Flowers all Around" BOM".....Do we have to get permission from QOTS to do this here on the "B"?
    Being we plan on starting this this fall and we don't have all the blocks and don't know the layout for the quilt....do we call it a Mystery BOM???

    Honchey, I think we do have to mention QOTS. It's not really a mystery BOM, at least QOTS doesn't call it a Mystery.
    I like QOTS Flowers all Around BOM.
    WOW 3 years already! Time is flying

    LOL Mirabelle, I did change diapers and made sure Isa emptied her bottle, cuddled and talked to them, played with Mick in the back yard, no shopping this time as I brought him cookies so he didn't ask
    Normally I put the memory card right back in the camera but not this time.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I agree because there will be 12 of them. I guess 'how' you arrange them is up to the quilter.

    AoA does have a layout...sent it by email, Honchey.

    Anael, it must be that new class you are taking, made you forget about your card! Bet you remember next time. At least you had 'cuddle' time Kodiak moments as memories in your mind.

    Now if I just knew enough to put Aim for accuracy into EQ7 I could figure out the layout better and enter each square in the proper place as it is finished. Ignorance is not always bliss.

    QNS, The layout you sent me is not the one we'll be starting in the Fall.... We'll be doing " Flowers all Around"...

    Right. But it goes with the first three patterns I sent to you. Of course, if you do not want more, we will stop there.
    Looking forward the the 'flowers' shower in the fall.

    Honchey ... It's just the first block that is called Flowers All Around and in their preface, they mentioned that not every block is a flower. When downloading, the blocks have "Spike Your English", which is apparently the pattern they based this one on. (look at the bottom for the fine print). The fine print also explains why some may have different versions of the first two blocks which surprises me that they did not change the name. With it being on the web, and free, I would think we do not need any QOTS sanctions. The main thing is that full credit be given to QOTS for the patterns, which obviously is happening the moment you provide the link and tell folks that's where to get the pattern. That being said, perhaps a courtesy FYI to QOTS would be of merit? What about for simplicity ... QOTS BOM or QOTS BOBW (biweekly), or whatever the time spacing becomes. And in the end, I don't think the name really matter?


    Me? ... I was a Johnny-Come-Lately, so just a little over two years that you've put up with me!

    Honchey ... You've done an incredible job, and had great stick-to-it-ness! I appreciate all that you have done and continue to do for all of us!

    QNSue ... glad to know you are done this round of drugs. I hope you will go back to the Dr. this week for a final clearance, to ensure the bugs have been stopped flat in their tracks and all is good.

    Quilt E, Doctor will not x-ray for 3 months from the first time, so that's another two months away. Its good that you read the small print; I guess we will go where they take us in the 'flowers' plus.

    Time does fly by.

    QNSue ... maybe no x-ray, but atleast have him do a look-see-hear with the stethoscope, etc. Better to be sure than to let things brew for two more months. We care about you and don't want any prolonged problems.

    Honchey ... one can never have too many patterns!

    Thanks, Honchey, hopefully since I am off the meds, I hope I can do better now. What will be, will be. No one has gotten excited about my lungs in four or five months, and I can still breathe, so no excuses for not hopping out of bed every morning. LOL!!

    Did not want to start up the new embroidery machine until after I was off it. That I hope is on deck for tomorrow.

    Have to take the library books in early part of the week, and dh has to take his cub cadet tractor somewhere and get it fixed as he depends on it heavily. ..and will probably expect me to go will him either to Chariton, Iowa or Milan, Mo.

    I just wanted to get an idea of how many colors they used. I was hopeful I could get a fat quarter sampler with lots of colors, but in checking them out last night there are a lot that are monochromatic, or have larger prints. The pieces in these patterns are mostly on the small size, so you need something with really small prints. It is fun to think about it and plan!

    Jeanie, you're right about small print fabric. I'm doing the 50 Fab PP stars and a lot of my batiks have large print scattered around. It gives some of those small pieces a different color than I had planned. I'll just call it artistic license instead of too lazy to fussy cut LOL.
