    Jan, that star (and all I've seen so far too) is spectacular! I really like this one the best so far!

    I finally lassoed MrJanRn into taking a pic of my stars. The dark brown one with the yellow spikes needs re-done; don't know how I messed up the middle so badly. Not a real good pic-- they're on a flannel wall. I think these are fun to do. So Anael, I guess we're a group of 2???Name:  50 Fab PP Stars.jpg

    Love the bus! Great stars Jan.
    I've been making 8" crumb blocks from some PC fabrics which wandered into my sewing room. These are "someone's" odds N ends. I fussy cut 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 inch squares from the scraps before I started sewing. Have 25 of them sewn. Added some of my own neutrals to help define the scenes. Getting ready to cut the sashing. Might see if I can find some rope fabric on black for the cornerstones tomorrow if not I have a black gold print I can use. Borders and binding should be lurking in my stash somewhere!Name:  003.JPG

    OK - that is going to be wonderful! Just love what you've done with that fabric. I still have some left, even after cutting those 5" squares for my PC border, and putting some in the backing.

    Finished work, and now I can play and am now in catch-up-read-mode before supper with fresh sweet corn tonight! No, I did not find the photo I was looking for, but I did get many of my pics labelled and sorted into a better file system as I searched. Productive! Today was a Holiday Monday, so I didn't mind taking the time for the file updates ... though it did prevent the sewing I had planned! Tonight I will get the Sept MB started.


    MiraB
    ... hooray for Marjen almost finished!!! Yes, balsamic is sweet and nice. Oops just remembered I have both red and white. Didnt realize I have a stash of vinegar! Yes, keep that man out of your "space"!!

    Anael ... Another beautiful star! Must be time for a group shot!

    I am terribly tempted with those stars but NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    Honchey .. have a great time with your DSis. Of course she KNOWS why you come to visit! Do you think there'll be a computer as a BINGO prize tonight?

    JanRN ... Starlight, Starbright!! ... Perfect!

    OKSGlad ... That's wonderful! You're going to have an unique "pony club" quilt! Am I right that there's a DGD that's a pony enthusiast? Maybe have her do one of those blocks ... or is this a secret for a gift to come?

    Fabrics do look a bit familiar; good job with the blocks. I sent blocks to GG, only to discover more. So starting a second box.

    My last sewing table is in at the shop. Now to figure out when I can get there to pick it up. Have the room ready, totally clear floor for all the tables. Got in there this afternoon to sew; cut out pieces for the next MB, and started sewing...no seam. Looked closer, no thread in upper part. LOL!! Neither new bulb came on! Bummer. Try to see if I can find time tomorrow to do a bit.

    JanRN, what a star line-up!! Fabulous. Who can resist those beautiful stars???

    Here's what I finished on the weekend and delivered.
    Also, finished Miss August ... though you're not going to get a peak of it yet!

    2013 is the 100th year for 4-H in Canada.

    Our County 4-H organization decided to make some quilt(s) to celebrate.
    The quilt(s) will be put together and hung in the local libraries.
    Kits were distributed to all interested with instructions to make a 12" block (finished), using all 3 fabrics, and add whatever else you wish.
    First is the kit fabric ... I managed to make two blocks from the one kit.
    I'm calling the one on the right my "heritage" block.

    Jan--your stars are looking good!

    OK--your blocks look like a lot of fun. Great way to use up the scraps.

    QE--I like your block choices for the fair. Nice way to use the fabrics.

    Oksewglad what a great way to use up your PC fabric, love love love it

    More great star blocks, I am with you QuiltE and resisting, someone please hold me back, I need Honchey's lasso

    QuiltE I love the blocks you made with your kit fabric, I think you nailed it

    Carriem and I were posting at the same time so I had to wait 30 seconds and pressed the submit button again. I am not trying to pad out the number of posts to 6,000

    Mirabelle, what you have to say is important and QB mice know it, so they 'let' you post twice!! And they run harder to generate the 'message' to us... It happens to the best of us.!! LOL!!.

    Thanks all ... the 4-H blocks were not for the Fair.
    They are being gathered and the Coordinators will decide the layout, and whether it will be one, two or more quilts ... unknown yet, as to how many will return!

    Members of a 4-H Quilting Club are going to be a part of the final work!!!

    I like your ideas, QuiltE. I think, did you not win an earlier contest with similar colors or was that something else? Its easy for an elder mind to become confused.

    Mirabelle, have your dd go through the names already being used...its a long list....'cause she cannot use what is already being used. Do remind her, its something she will be typing in a lot; like mine can be shortened to the letters of QNS. That's quick and easy, but typing it out as a password, that is not so quick. She is lovely, and does beautiful work with quilts, shares with her Mom, and seems to be very intelligent. I am sure she will come up with the perfect name for the QB site.

    Oh lots to read again

    Jan, your stars are gorgeous!! Yes, we're a group of 2 now but soon we will be 4 Mirabelle and QuiltE can't resist, they will join us in time

    OK, what a great idea to make crumb blocks with the PC fabrics. They're lovely. Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

    QuiltE, great blocks. I love your heritage block! Don't tell me you want pics of Dutch chickens too I do have a German rooster for you! This one lives in the zoo in Nordhorn.

    I've been lurking again. I'm going to pull a Honchey and hibernate for awhile. Life is happening and I need some time to process. It doesn't mean I won't check in everyday but there won't always be comments. I'm putting together the baby quilt for my DGD's baby and my attention to detail is fuzzy so there is a lot of unsewing! It's worth it though. It will be a lovely quilt when done and I will post pictures. Still pondering fabrics for SYE.

    GGal ... do hope all is well, and you just need a breather. Will be thinking of you, as you lurk, process, hibernate and deal with life! Good that you are going to be sticking with us as a Spiker!

    Anael
    ... charming chicken with its fuzzy feet!! but no, you don't need to watch for cluck-clucks for me! Moos, a different story!

    QNS ... the one for the fair was red white and black.
