    Great minds think alike, I thought it was an interesting block that would look great on its own as a quilt, great design possibilities

LOL After I posted the photo of Mirabelle's block, I thought "Darn, I forgot to get the others out of the box and do a photo of all of them. I'll do that tomorrow for you all!

    Jeanie, that's a beautiful block Mirab made for you. I love the pink batik fabric and I agree, I think that block repeated would make an interesting quilt--lots of secondary designs. Your BB quilt turned out so nice. I have mine hanging at the bottom of the steps and see it each time I come downstairs--reminds me of all my great friends.

    Getting ready to make stuffed manicotti; will make extra for the RV. Have a great Sunday ladies!

    CAKE, thanks Mirabelle! I take some before it's gone!

    I'm going to have coffee at #2 son's It has been raining all morning but now the sun is shining again so I'm going by bike. I made some pastries to take with me, odd shapes as the filling popped out all the time.
    I've read a blog of a lady who is getting rid of stuff she doesn't use anymore. On January 1st she decided to get rid of one piece a day, till December 31st. I thought I can do that too, but started last Monday. So #2 son is getting some of mu stuff
    He said to me: give it to thrift shop Frankie

    Oh Gosh, get rid of one thing a day for a year, I don't have that much "stuff" and I am definitely not giving away my stash Maybe I could start with DH

    When we moved to the Northern Territory in 85 we lived in a caravan for 12 months (not fun) then moved into a house eventually buying our own. I had downsized considerably when we moved and just never got around to filling my house again. With dust storms every other day and working long hours it certainly made keeping the house tidy, easier by not having to dust ornaments etc etc.

    Will post later today my next four blocks done in Irish Mist, (T.Mist) have three done, the fourth ready to sew.

    Gave away most of the garden produce so I do not have to can right now...they all went to homes where the produce was appreciated and used almost immediately. Now I have a list for those waiting for more egg plant. Just around the corner on highway 136 is a new quick shop called "Goobers" opening on Monday. Some how, I do not think it will become the next "7 to 11" quick shop. Still trying to hobble around on the right knee that still hurts like crazy; no big plans for the day, just rest. Rest of the world will have to wait, D_D 'cause my speed is very slow, slow, slow today.

    QNS, get off your feet ..elevate that sore knee and get some ice on it..an Ace bandage wrapped around it will give it support when you are up and around.... with all that you do don't put it off...do it NOW!!! Let DH help you


    Mirabelle, That's a good idea...I've started doing that and I'm beginning to see some results....I might be able to see the floor around my Accuquilt cutter if I start in that room

    Mirabelle, I don't think I have 365 things I can do without either but doing some cleaning that should have been done quite some time ago makes me feel good #2 Son thought it was a good idea too, he needs to declutter his appartment so he told me.

    QNS, take care of yourself, like Honchey said, get off your feet and give your knee some rest.

    Oh QNS, that is turning out so beautiful. I really love the batiks you are using!

    Thank you everyone for the kind comments on my BB Quilt. I am loving looking at it each time I pass by my quilting room or go in to "work" (
    ).

    It is that kit from Ladybug in Colorado, called Tahiti Mist based on the Irish Mist pattern. The colors are Rocky Mountains in the Springtime and Stonehenge matching the batik colors. I talked about it here, and several others ordered it also...I now am on page 12, ready to put the center together. So I accepted the fabric in the kit and this is the results of it. The second one I match fabric and colors for the pattern at Creekside QS, DM, IA, for dh, so it will be manly fabrics.

    Thank your for your kind words of encouragement.

    Beautiful start to your quilt, QNS. Those are my favorite colors. Will it make a large quilt or wall hanging? I love it. And about that knee-----doesn't seem like you're resting it too much!

    The pulled muscle will take time to heal...the ace bandage or knee support makes my foot swell. And if I stay off of it too long, it gets stiff. Driving and getting in and out of the car seems to set it off. So I try to get up every 30 minutes to an hour and exercise it a bit, carefully. Best plan, to eat less, and lose some weight and it will heal faster....but I love to cook and love to eat. Thera-gesic pain relieving creme helps some.

    With tomatoes coming on, its a lot of bacon and tomato sandwiches, so other than microwaving the bacon, I am not cooking a lot of food here. I can eat a couple or three sandwiches for lunch and supper.

    PC #2 without borders...

    I included the top half/bottom half so you can see the blocks a little better and one close up of some blocks so you can maybe tell the color of the blue/green sashing I used.

    Since I do QAYG, I haven't put the rows together yet. My idea for borders is a narrow rust/tan color and then maybe a piano key using leftovers from my blocks...I cut the large pieces of FQs into 2 1/2" strips. Then a red binding. What do you think? Any other suggestions? I have plenty of both the red and the blue/green that I could use somehow too.

    Carrrie, that blue green color really sets these blocks off beautifully. The borders sound perfect too!

    Carrie, that is awesome. I love the dark red background and I think the blue/green really makes the blocks stand out. Great job. I'm so jealous that you got your project completed and all I got to do was pout about my S-16 LOL. That is a striking combination of colors.

    Carriem that deserves a whole bunch of high fives. Well done, I also love that pale green it just makes the blocks pop..

    I have just finished piecing my first Spike block and I love it, now back to the quilting (I took a detour today)

    QNS, your Irish Mist will be stunning! I love those colours!

    Carrie, that is gorgeous, I love the red background and the pale sashing. No advice on the borders though.

    Thanks for the nice comments on my PC quilt. I showed DH and he said "Who's that one for?" (I give most of my quilts away)...when I said it was for us he said "Good, I like this one."

    Jan--are you making progress on piecing any other UFOs since you can't quilt right now? Did they give you a timeline on your S16 repairs?

    Karen--I am trying to keep the box closed with the SYE fabric/papers as it would be very easy to keep working ahead on those. The block I made was a lot of fun and went together quickly. BTW I too measure each section like you mentioned on the other thread. Makes my life a lot easier!

    I am going to get back to quilting the airplane quilt this afternoon. Still can't quilt too much in one sitting so will probably pull out another UFO to work on piecing in between. Or might get ahead on some MBs. Not sure yet.
