    Does the corn starch bring out the flavor of the OJ? Or just help to thicken?

    No it won't flavour it ... only thicken.

    I had been thinking about this, this afternoon, and was thinking the flavour wouldn't be as potent as lemon juice would be.
    Wonder? ... perhaps use frozen orange juice concentrate (before adding the required water). It'd be colourful, plus have a lot more flavour.

    Here is some more eye candy for all of you! DD sent me this beautiful MB, which arrived today. She said it is from Quilter's Cache, and is called "Old Favorite". Also here is a photo of all five!

    QuiltE - Yes I think the orange concentrate would work much better than just orange juice. Sounds yummy!

    Anael - what gorgeous countryside you get to bike through. I am so scared to ride a bike in town, but in the country I'd go in a heartbeat!

    The thought of using the concentrate occurred to me after I baked them...there's always next time.

    Today I sewed on Row #6 of the airplane quilt, but it was too heavy to keep working with so I didn't get any quilting done on it. I am going to pin Row #7 (last one) on tonight, then just quilt both when I can.

    Below are some pictures of what I worked on instead. This is a quilt for my MIL...her mom did the embroidered blocks several years ago. Look at the back and how neat it is! MIL found them in a box after she died....only September was missing for some reason so MIL made that one.

    I didn't want to just sash and put together in regular rows so am altering the "Big Easy II" pattern using these fabrics. Some blocks will go in the center of the blocks that look "on-point" and some will go in the middle of the 4-P (like the last picture).

    The embroidered blocks are 9" finished...same size as the pattern originally called for, so its was pretty easy to make the needed changes.

    Firstly these are fabrics I am going to use for SYE, I "acquired" them after sleeping over at DD's there is a border print and I may use the small print as the corner triangles, also may add a purple to the mix, what do you all think

    Warning warning photo overload



    Will try and explain each photo as I go along.
    1. taken from one side of the room as everyone was arriving

    2. This quilt won Viewers Choice at the Melbourne Quilt Convention, Molly dyes her background fabric sketches a vague outline of what goes where and then thread paints with her sewing machine, there is no applique on this quilt. It is simply amazing up close. She is a member of my Friday embroidery club so I have had the privilege of watching her work on these masterpieces.

    3. This quilt made hand embroidered candlewicking, made my a member of my Thursday group

    4. Baltimore that was needle turned applique and took the lady 5 years to make it, it was stunning

    5. This was just a very pretty machine appliqued quilt that I liked

    So mirabelle has been snitchin" again! Bright fabrics for sure.

    What a lovely block DD. Lucky Jeanie!

    Carrie, the fabrics and pattern you've chosen is going to make those beautiful blocks more special. A treasure to own when you are finshed!

    Spent most of the day outside--was a great day to work in vegetable and flower beds as yesterday's 1" rain made for easy pulling! Still lots to do, but was rewarded with a tender cuke dipped in ranch dressing. Oh so tasty! Now to get some sewing done.

    Great pictures Karen, thanks for sharing.

    And some more photos for you

    1, 2 and 3 are from a quilt my friend Shannon made. After her DH passed away she found a notebook where he had written down all his funny sayings, so she stitched them out and made a wallhanging and it is called Bill Said. I tried to take a photo of it but it was very blurry

    4. Jennifer's African quilt for her grandson, all the animals are machine embroidered

    5. a cute applique quilt with a Paris theme

    Carrie, I think you matched your MIL blocks with great fabric. Well done. What a Fantastic quilt that will be.

    And Mirabelle, you did a great job 'acquiring' a nice variety of color. Yes, I think you could add another dark color and balance out the future blocks. Awaiting til you are rested and caught up to tell us more details about your fun you had.

    Jeanie, congrads on the new dgd. I envy you, if wishes were fishes, the ocean would be full is the old time expression...meaning I wish for more grands myself but count myself lucky to have one.

    But wait I've got more

    1. Quilt Divas

    2. This was a machine appliqued Baltimore

    3. This quilt, can't remember the name of it was all hand pieced, it was beautiful.

    I didn't get any photos of my groups quilts as I was up on stage with them but will see if Gladys will bring her applique quilt and her Bargello next week so I can get a photo of them.

    Now I have to drag my quilts out of the car and bring them inside, then I might veg out on the sofa today

    What a delightful bunch of posts tonight!

    CarrieM ... what a treasure that quilt is going to be with the three generations working on it. Better still, get your DDs involved so it can be 4 gens. And be sure to honour the history and who all was part with a special block ... looks like you have 13 spots!

    MiraB ... do you get to sleep in the stash room, to make it easy for a getaway? What an incredible bunch of quilts and such variety. Love Shannon's sense of humour. So hard to pick out a favourite from all of those ... I'd take any if I could! And to think these were the visiting quilts!! What amazing quilters there must be in Australia ... is it genetic? All of you Ladies did yourself proud!!!

    The biggest bummer about the quilt is it will go back to MIL and go to one of DH's sisters. There were also blocks of 50 birds that MIL had someone else pieced and quilt (this was before I was quilting)...this will go to the other sister.

    Karen--those are some great quilts...thanks for taking the time to share.

    There was only one downside to the day and that was I lost a Table Mat. My Table Runner and Table Mat that match my Mini Dresden were placed on the stage with other small items, and the table mat went missing. Nobody has come forward to say they picked it up with their quilts by mistake so I don't know if it will be returned to me.

    JeanieG that is a beautiful block, goes with the others so well..

    Dublb, we all will need an update of your address through email or just through Anne (Honchey). Continue those baby steps, and watch your backs!! One step at a time.

    CarrieM ... I'm sure it's hard for you to be enthused knowing that, but please do try. Perhaps they will change their minds and surprise you later, in saying that it should stay with their brother/son aka your DDDH! After all, he carries the "name"!

    MiraB ... oh what a sad note to a wonderful day. {{{{HUGS}}}} Did you know before you left the hall? Or only after you unpacked once you were home? We'll hope that someone does find it and return it to you.

    DublB ... ITA time for you to pass your new address on to the group.
