    JanRN I am machine appliqueing the blocks with a small blanket stitch, DD is doing half and I am doing the other half. Trying to share the load Have attached a small pic to show you the stitches

    Honchey my thoughts are with you and your family and I hope they find out what is wrong with your precious GS and are able to treat it quickly.

    Anael I hope you are feeling better soon and that kidney stones are not found, they are nasty

    QE - slow down a little we miss you

    QNS I hope you enjoy your day sewing and make progress on your projects

    Carriem - let them cook

    DDamsel I have EQ6, thought it was the thing I had to have, spent a couple of evenings going through the tutorials then gave up, also purchased the Block Book. It looks good on the bookshelf maybe one day I will spend the time and learn the program.

    JeanieG I hope you have somewhere to retreat and stay cool.

    I am off to the sewing room, applique is so boring

    tried to draw quilterscache.com block in EQ7. because it would not print true, regardless of how I tried to set it up. Disappointed . Guess I will have to do something different. sigh.

    Honchey, hope the little guy gets better quickly.

    Mirabelle, you always do beautiful work.

    QuiltE, have a good trip at fairs.

    DGS has an intestinal virus & the swollen nodes prevented him from going to the bathroom...he is on the mend after going to the john with the help of laxatives & suppositories..no antibiotics as it is viral and his temps are much lower but not totally gone...He is now home resting..no school for a day or two...I'm so glad they found out what it was...I feel much better now...

    Mirab, is that by machine?? I don't think mine does that altho it has 1.5 million stitches that I've never looked at. Maybe I should get out my instruction manual and check them out. That really looks like hand stitching--thanks for sharing the pic; I'll start playing with my machine.

    Anne, great news about your DGS. When we were little if my sister or I complained of a tummy ache the first question my mother would ask was "did you poop?" That was the start of my nursing career LOL. Glad he's on the mend.

    Jeanie, good to hear from you. Stay cool.

    I have EQ7 with BlockBase and I love it. I am not good with it (like OKSewglad) but I use it to re-size blocks and check color combos. QNS, I never have good luck with the patterns from Quilters Cache when I try to use them in EQ7. They never turn out the right size but with so many to choose from in EQ7/BB, I can usually find a similar if not the exact block. DD, I say go for it. Watch for sales on the EQ website (sign up for their emails); even tho I don't use all the functions, I've gotten my money's worth out of it. I print all my blocks for paper piecing in any size I want. I love it.

    Honchey--glad to hear DGS has a diagnosis and is on the mend.

    I am happy to let my girls cook...it's just when I want a recipe and I can't find it that it is a little frustrating.

    I woke up with a headache so didn't get as much done as I wanted to. I started sewing down the binding on the airplane quilt today, but spent most of my "clubhouse time" cutting materials for the cards/invites so they are ready for tomorrow afternoon. We will be making 40, but with two of us it shouldn't take too long.

    I'm gone two days and now to catch up. Great block dublb! mirabelle hit the definition of scrappy right on the head. Must get mine in the mail this week now.

    mirabelle I will not show my grands your lovely princess quilt--I don't want to have to make 5. They'd all want one.

    Scary time for your little one Honchey. Glad everything is going to be okay. Chuckled at your "did you ?" Jan. Dairy farmers are always looking at cow poop--especially when an animal is sick!

    Have a good time at Fair QE!
    Seems like we have lots of walking wounded! Carrie--hope those migraines go away and stay away. Rest easy. The same to you Anael. FYI can hardly tell that the finger was stabbed through and I got the 2 quilts done you can see them at:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ml#post6295882

    EQ7--you know I love mine. I can spend as much time in it "making" quilts as I do here on the QB. These two I "made" before I sewed them together.

    Still trying to catch up on being gone all weekend so better take care of things.

    JeanieG ... you two deserve this get-away so much! ENJOY it, despite the dreadful heat. And soon you can be home again, into your "new" home. Yes, I'm sure you will be "in heaven" to get life back to normal. Insurance nver covers the inconvenience, does it?

    MiraB ... your blanket stitch is looking so good! I have a quilt of my Mom's that was all blanket stitch applique, by hand, and have always liked this look. So, Maybe this is a way that I can become friends with applique?

    Honchey ... I'm so glad that you now know what was wrong with your Little Guy. Here's hoping that he returns to good health quickly. Now for you to get better too!

    JanRN ... **laughing** at how you started your nursing career! I now have visions of you playing with your dollies and asking them, did you poop?

    And now OKSGlad you have me laughing more, thinking about JanRNs farming education and how it has expanded!!!! Yes, JanRN we dairy farmers are great poop watchers!

    CarrieM ... Maybe you will have to get your girls started with their own recipe books/files, so they can leave yours in tact! In years to come, they will be ever-so-thankful!!! migraine

    OK--I really like the blue one...but then I am drawn to the metallics these days.

    A friend of mine let me try out her EQ4...I know the newer versions have lots of updates, but it gave me an idea that I do eventually want to get it. I have learned a lot more using the DJ EQ program...I have lessons 1&2 done and am half way through lesson 3 (of 7).

    Thankfully my headache didn't hold on all day!

    Bev this is all done on my machine, I use what I call my triple blanket stitch, it does 5 stitches back and forth and then one stitch to the side, it gives a nice edge to the applique.

    I will have to find my Fancy Flowers quilt that I made about 8 years ago, that one I hand appliqued, gave the pattern to my best friend, mmm wonder if she still has it ??? If I find it I will post a pic of it.

    Honchey so glad you got a good diagnosis, plenty of rest and love and he will be on the mend in no time.

    Now back to the applique, I have finished the two crowns and one more letter to do on the words. ho hum.. corned silverside is bubbling away on the stove for dinner tonight and one more day and DH is back to work, these three weeks seemed to drag on

    Bev, I'm glad they found what's wrong with your DGS. Hope he will be well very soon.

    Mirabelle, machine applique is boring But the result is beautiful!

    Jeanie, enjoy your new home

    Carrie, I forgot to mention those are beautiful cards. I used to make hand embroidered Christmas cards but I don't anymore.

    Mirbab, I have a Viking Sapphire 875 that I use all the time; also have a Brother (something Runway) that I've only used a few times when Viking was in for it's check-up. Couldn't sleep last night so I got out the manual for Viking and looked at the stitches. There are a few that look like blanket stitches (which I like) and some that are just lots of small back and forth stitches that cover the edges of the applique (not too crazy about those). I'm going to try a few of them out and see if I can find the one you used. It really looks like you hand stitched it. Thank you!

    Honchey...so glad that you DGS is on the mend and that you had a good time at the family reunion.
    Jeanie....we will all celebrate with you when your redo is complete! It will be like having a new home.
    Anael....feeling better? Sure hope so.
    Carrie...glad the headache didn't hang around. Sounds like you're gearing up for your retreat. These months go so fast!
    OK...darling minis!
    JanRN...my QB got a pattern for one of those tiny minis on the last shop hop. Have you tried Eleanor Burns method of chain piecing? It might not work well with such small pieces but I did 2 inch 9 patches with it the other day and I was surprised at how easy it was. I think Bonnie Hunter has talked about it too so you might find several people doing it on line.
    QNS...sounds like you've slowed down a bit...is your knee any better?
    QE...we do miss you. Have fun at the fair!
    Dibib...great blocks. It's nice that you're finishing up the PC. I still have enough blocks for another lap quilt but it hasn't been calling to me. Also the BB's.
    Janie...come back safe and sound and inspired by your UK trip. I've always though I would enjoy a trip to the British Isles. I have ancestors from both sides of my family that came from there.
    GrannyQ....thinking of you.
    Mirabelle....love the princess quilt. It will be much loved!
    i took the tape off of my toe yesterday and it looks like I have a red toe ring on! It swelled a little over night so the tape goes back on. I am walking much better. I just have to sew the binding down in my Jamestown. So nice to have a finish. I'll post a picture later this week. Today I attend my last Marti&Me club meeting. After the Aiming 4 Accuracy quilt, I'm interested in expanding my experience and quilting skills. The SYE is fun and I'm resisting starting another mystery quilt and looking to finish a couple more UFOs.

    Hi all,

    still waiting for the testresults. Hope I will have them tomorrow. I'm not doing that well, quite a lot of pain
    I wanted to sandwich a quilt but I can't, have to do it on the floor and I can't bend over. So I prepared a wall hanging on the dinner table

    GG, I'm glad your toe is getting better.

    Hi everybody,

    Just thought I'd pop in for a quick hello. We leave for the UK on Wednesday morning and I have so much to do, We have had a bumper crop of tomatoes and corn this year and I just can't waste it so I have been Suzie Homemaker these past few days. It feels great to have it done, but it has been busy.

    I have the UK trip almost planned. We are taking a mini tour of Cornwall and Devon but the rest of the time we are on our own. One day we will do the Thames walk for 11 miles and end up in Windsor. We are also going to stay with people we met last Nov. in Egypt for a couple of days. The time is going to fly by.

    Sorry to read about all the troubles several of you have been having. I hope that settles down soon. My DIL will be having more surgery in December and she wants me to be with her kids while she recovers so when we get back I will need to get a ton of hand sewing stuff ready.

    I sent out my Sept MB last week and have my Oct one ready to mail when we return so I am semi organized!

    I am going to try and figure out how to post pictures from the iPad and then maybe I can put the odd one here while we are away.

    Wishing everyone good health and lots of quilting!

    Jan, You do have some of those stitches on your machine...You can adjust the width and the length to get the perfect stitch for your project...I have the 850 and you have a few more stitches than mine...
    Going to the post office today or tomorrow..Have several things to mail but it's raining and I don't want to get wet...I might melt

    Going back to the general MD this pm, to set up an appointment with a orthopedic speicalist that visits my hometown once a month, this coming 23rd, I pulled a muscle on the inside of the right knee and I want to know if it is healing or needs help before I ruin it. Nurse practitioner did not have clue, nor did she want one.

    Dressed out three more roosters this morning, so there are 8 less birds in the hen house at night and less feed is consumed. Canning them 'cause the freezer is full for the winter. Dh 'helped' me.

    Thanks for the help, Anne, will email you I received yours.

    Anael ... ooooh!! hand embroidered cards sound so lovely. Have any pics of them?

    MiraB ... maybe I missed it before, but do you fuse the applique pieces on first before your machine stitching. You know what's going to happen? ... you'll have yours all done and will do DDs for her, so that you can get on to assembly and the quilting!

    GGal ... look forward to seeing your Jamestown and while at it, perhaps you'd favour us with an A4A update pic too? You've been a busy bee lately, with lots of progress and completions!

    JanRN ... of course, you need something more to do!

    JanieW ... Here's to a most enjoyable trip for you. Sounds like you have lots of good plans to make the best of the time you have. So sorry about your DDILs need for more surgery. You have been the BEST MIL to be there and help them thru all their challenges. For hand sewing, what about GFGs? Or how about joining the Janiac Maniacs and do a hand sewn DJ? Of course, if you get lots of UFOs to the point of binding, you would have those to do too. Enjoy your holiday!!

    Honchey ... yes! do stay inside, we do not want you to melt away!

    QNSue ... Yes indeed, time to see a specialist about your knee, and what can be done to improve your situation. Just remember to listen ..... and do what the Dr tells you!

    MB done ... will be mailed today.
    Challenge Block for the Fair is done.
    Wonder? can I sneak in any more sewing?
    Or should I devote my energies to getting ready to being organized to leave tmro/Tues night or Wed morning?
