    Here's what I've been working on today...I need a wider design wall! The pattern has 3 blocks across and I don't even have room for 2 whole ones. Need to get a late lunch and then back to work.

    Oh and I also got my Aug MB done, but will send a picture of that to Anael and let the recipient post a pic when she gets it.

    That is moving right along Carrie, looks beautiful! I am working on the bonus blocks wall hanging. It is coming together nicely. I decided to add one of the PC blocks I had left over, so it is three across and five down.

    What a cheery quilt QNS!

    A lovely start to your quilt Carrie.

    Finished another mini today; have pickles to finish up; going to start another mini; and then get food ready for a family reunion tomorrow--a 2 hour drive one way. (Hope Ilean is not listening.)

    Michele Foster has posted lesson 7 on her site Aim for Accuracy. I had to admit on five and six, I had forgotten how to download. Michele was very nice about reminding me the 'how' to do it...thanks to her, I was successful in downloading it.

    Carrie, what is your pattern called or is it one you designed...lovely.

    OK--can't wait to see your newest mini quilts.

    QNS--The pattern I am using is called "The Big EZ II" http://www.bloomcreek.com/store/prod...s/?product=177 Where the pattern has 4 squares together I altered to make a border for the embroidered blocks. The very middle block will be one of the green prints since there are 13 spaces and only 12 months.

    I am really happy with how this one is coming together. I liked the fabrics all stacked up, but really like them now that they are cut and surrounding the month blocks.

    MiraB ... and sometimes when your DH is home, you are searching for tiger flower coordinates!!! Has it arrived? And has he changed his choice, yet again?

    QNSue .. your pansies are indeed beautiful! Your friend couldn't help but love it!

    CarrieM ... it's beautiful (as though we didn't all know that before you started stitching!). It must take some figuring to make sure you get the right fabric, in the right place. And yes .... a larger design wall is in order!! I sometimes wonder how I managed without one!

    OKSGlad ... you've been really in production on those Minis! Taking one to the family reunion tmro? Tell Ilean, she is not included in that family, and drop her off at a service centre along the way!! Have a safe trip, and enjoyable day with your family!

    CarrieM ... just saw your later post and how you like the fabrics more now that you are working with them! For the 13th block, instead of the green ... what about doing an embroidered block, to tell the story of the quilts (who did what and when)? It would be so appropriate for this quilt.

    No sewing for me today ... was gone longer than I'd expected, and when I got home, allergies had me zonked. So am hoping for an early start tmro ... I need it, if I am going to make my deadline!

    Good Night Ladies!

    Working on mini #4. The last two I had the 9P blocks already made-just a matter of squaring them up and deciding quilt layouts and fabrics. When I get these done I will do the quilting on all four.
    The log cabin is made up of random light and dark 3/4" pieces so colors can be so unpredictable. Then I have to search thru the stash to find just the right fabric for borders and of course needs to be of a smaller scale.
    The smaller one was a "planned" quilt from some EQ playing. Yikes I "had" to cut "new" fabric for the HST's and worse yet 3/4" strips for the side rails.
    The 9P's speak to me as I search for coordinating fabrics and layouts. Selecting fabrics takes the longest--a fabric explosion in quilt space! Hope to post the next two tomorrow night.

    OKSGlad .... you really should do a mini dedicated to those delicious pickles ... perhaps all in greens?

    I can't keep up with you all

    QNS, gorgeous Pansies! Do you make the second one just like this one?

    Carrie, that's going to be a wonderful quilt!

    Mirabelle, your block has been approved

    Here's my next Star from the 50 fabulous Stars. Are you still leaning and thinking Mirabelle?

    Anael--another pretty block.

    My plan is to start the 50 stars in January. I also want to start Dear Jane in January. I will get all the patterns printed and cut out and fabric chosen before that. My goal will be at least one star, one DJ triangle block and two square DJ blocks per week. I am sure some weeks I will do more than that. I figure if I wait until January, it will motivate me to get some more of my UFOs finished before starting something new. Plus I have no idea what fabrics I want to use so need some time to figure that out too!!

    CarrieM ... oh my, you are ambitious ... to have them all DJ and Stars, cut out for January. My goodness, you won't have time for those UFOs before then!

    MiraB ...yes, got your email. Was gone most of yesterday and replied to QB, but not emails last night. Will reply to emails this morning. YOurs will be #1 on the hit parade!

    Anael ... I'd say you caught the Alaskan spirit in that block, quite well. Take note, I am not going to let MiraBs email ferment for long. Have a FUN twin day ... and is this the LadyBug day for Mick, too?

    And today ......... my marathon to finish that topper!

    QE--I bring my paper trimmer in the house and cut out patterns while watching tv with the family in the evenings. It doesn't take too long. Since I made cards/taught classes for years I am very comfortable with a paper trimmer. Don't worry it won't take away from my sewing time.

    It was fun with the twins. Bram puked all over me again They both had a bath, I went for a walk with Mick because my DS was very moody and grumpy so I thought it's best if he doesn't see Mick for a while.
    We had dinner, the twins had their bottle and we put them to bed. Bram didn't agree
    Tomorrow he has to be admitted to hospital to see if he can do without the oxigen. So fingers crossed once again!

    QuiltE, no ladybug day! I still have to do the back of the cushion but didn't know how my DDIl wanted it. Now I do so next time he will get his ladybug cusion.

    Sew thankful thought of the day:Life is good! If the view doesn't seem so great at times, we can choose to change our perspective. So dh did; he went back to bed!! I hope he gets to feeling better; he drank the hot bullion chicken broth for lunch... Me, I had the BLT and hold the L. I have eaten all I can hold, but want more to eat, it was soo good.

    Love sitting in the quilting room now. I actually push the buttons on my embroidery machine yesterday and made a butterfly. found out that the guitar was on my stick, but the machine could not read it. back to square one.

    Did you get the wrong file QNS? There's software to convert embroidery files. Like Wilcom Truesizer, as far as I know it's free.

    The QS owner converted it for me, so I am going to let her deal with it the week of the 19th when we journey up to DM, and pick up my last sewing cabinet then. I will lug the Embroidery machine along, too., and see if she can load it in the machine or what she has to do for it to load. (I hope she can) I have saved a couple of things on it with Art.com, but apparently the one I want says something different. But thanks for the offer, Anael. Sounded like you had fun with your dgchildren. Have my fingers crossed for Bram.

    Enjoying a quiet day, starting to work on Tahiti Stonehenge (a.k., Irish Mist) ordered from Ladybug Quilts, that finishes 68 x 80. Ambitious as I was, I cut out two from the pattern, one for dh and one for me. Interesting. Very clear instructions and illustrations, and I am continuing to label everything in small plastic bags and mark on my copy of the instructions. I know where I am, and where to find what I need. Love it.

    Yes Anael another beautiful block. Carriem you have me interested in your January start for the 50 stars and I could work on my Sylvia blocks. Maybe we could motivate each other. I think Sylvia has stalled as I am just not happy with DD's fabrics, they just don't seem "right". I am trying to imagine what it would look like and in my mind it just looks like a big colourful blob. SO I am now thinking of white or cream background, small floral print with 2 or 3 co-ordinating prints. I just have to wait until the right fabric speak to me I like that small print you are using in Spike but not sure about the gold outline, aaarrrggghhhh why do I do this to myself.

    QE--hope you are making much progress in the sewing room.

    Anael--great to hear you got to spend some time with the grandkids; especially Mick. I am sure he needs the extra attention these days. Hope that Mom and Dad see that as well as the health of the twins continues to improve.

    QNS--I am excited for you to have your sewing room all set up and ready to use.

    I got the top half of the embroidered quilt together today. Should be able to get the bottom half done tomorrow. The middle row will wait. After QE's suggestion for a label on the front, I have decided to make the center block special for my MIL. I don't do much embroidery, but my oldest DD (15) does, so I will have her put "In Memory of ...." with a couple flowers around it. We will be taking the quilt to be quilted by someone in the area. I'll put a detailed label on the back with who did what on the quilt.

    Karen--I would love to have someone help motivate me. We are watching a movie, so it took me a while to type my reply (above) and you posted in the meantime.

    Jan--how is your Rosie quilt coming along? I have my corners cut for the "on-point" blocks and also the strips for the 2 small borders on the other blocks. Working on pinning corners on tonight so I can sew them tomorrow before getting back to the embroidered quilt. A little each day and I might finish by the end of August.

    Anael, sounds like you had a great day with the Sewgrands, puke and all. I'm sure Mick appreciates the extra attention, too. Praying for Bram.

    Carrie, Rosie is moving at a snail's pace. I have her sandwiched and all the sashings straight stitched down so I can start to FMQ any day now. It's amazing how many things I can find to do other than FMQ---like cleaning toilets, dusting, playing solitaire on the computer, etc., etc. I have 2 more weeks off work and THAT DAMN QUILT WILL BE DONE!!!!!! Sorry, it's sitting here staring at me and mocking me because I'm such a chicken when it comes to quilting it. I probably shouldn't have signed up for SYE because of all the other unfinished projects I have but love riding with yinz. I think I need a bigger Box That Shall Never Be Opened to hide them in.
