    Jan - that MB Quilt just turned out wonderful! I always like your quilting - just enough, and not overpowering. You want it comfortable and cuddly, not like a board! Great job!

    Lazy day here, watching women's basketball. Got my Sizzix out and am running some scraps through to add to my squares bins. I'm also working on my next 50 stars block. I am still behind, but finished another one last night. I got the binding on my Bonnie Hunter Orca Bay. I'll get a photo for show and tell soon. I need to get another of my flimsys sandwiched. I like have something to quilt, as well as blocks to make. You can tell I get bored easily, and switch from one to another.

    Here is my completed Bonnie Hunter Orca Bay. I pieced it two years ago, and just finished quilting it.

    Beautiful, JeanieG. What a finish you have; makes the work all worthwhile when they turn out so wonderful! Love the Blues and reds in the quilt that gives it that 'wow' factor.

    Anael - Bonnie Hunter Mysteries always start the day after Thanksgiving. You get the fabric requirements the month before that. You get a set of instructions each Friday until around New Years, or a week after. I finished piecing this one around the middle of January. It has sat in a box until last month when I quilted it.

    QNS - I forgot how beautiful the quilt was until I put it on the clothesline and took a look at it from afar. You work on them so close that you don't get the full impact until you can hang them up finished and get another look.

    That is so beautiful, Jeanie! What patience you have to make all those blocks. (I get bored if I make 3 or 4 the same). I love those colors and the quilting. Great job!

    Jan, you don't just make blocks. The way Bonnie sets this up is doing it in sections. We did the little blue strip pieces one week, we did the hourglass shapes another week, and the red strips another week. A set of HST another week. It is not till you get to the final week that she reveals how all these sections go together. It is always a surprise! She does not overwhelm you with these sections. You have all week to get them done.

    JeanieG ... ITA it's an amazing quilt! All those little pieces have come together for a really stunning quilt for you. True credit to you, for sticking with all that piecing. Even in following it thru in the incremental steps ... a lot of sameness with in each step. You're right ... not often enough, we allow ourselves that distant view to truly enjoy our quilts.

    JanRN ... I think we have ADD, and not able to focus on all those same parts repeatedly!

    Jeanie....truly a beautiful finish.
    Jan...by doing those little steps on a weekly basis and knowing there will another clue in a week, it never gets boring. Plus, going them scrappy, even controlled scrappy, each block is just a bit different and after the reveal, you can't wait to get everything together just to see how your fabrics looks in her pattern. And there is something about doing it with a group if people that takes the boring out of it to.
    I had a FART yesterday with my QB' and came home loaded down. I haven't done any major project purchasing since forever, just adding to what I already have to complete something so yesterday, I found the perfect fabric for my DD's wedding quilt. The shopkeeper got out her cart and started laying out the bolts of fabric as I selected them, knew just what might go with them, helped me evaluate without telling me what I should use and then carefully labeled each fabric as she cut it so I wouldn't forget how it fit my pattern. By the time I got done my QBs had finished and I still hadn't explored the store. I will go back! The next two stores contained treasures too...this time to compliment something I have started...good thing we don't do this everyday. Now to sew fast....

    GardenGal, I think sewing a wedding quilt for a DD is the sweetest, most rewarding of all quilting a Mother can do...love to see a picture of it whenever...even after her wedding. A Son is a son until he takes a wife, but a daughter is a daughter all her life. And then, if your are lucky one, there will be grandchildren to make quilts for, to spoil and send them home with their parents....and to buy the grandchildren the nosiest toys for Christmas to send home with them.

    Haircut day. Hope it makes me feel better...now if she could make me feel years younger it would be sooo nice. Florida is started...one wedge almost finished...four more stars to go this month...but its more fun to work on the I SPY quilt for friend's two yr old grandson...or play with another project...

    Hope youall have a good day..

    Just checking in with everyone. Have been busy in my sewing room as usual and trying to do some gardening in between showers of rain. It has rained every day for the past week and grey depressing skies, I agree Mother Nature has a sick sense of humour..
    JanRN your MB turned out beautiful, what a treasured memory quilt to snuggle under with hugs from everyone..

    DDamsel such cute puppies, eleven oh my

    JeanieG your Orca Bay is stupendous, I have always wanted to do a BH Mystery but her colour palettes always put me off and then when I see the finished quilt I love it. Maybe I should just bite the bullet one year and do it!!!!

    DH is having a nap, he has just arrived home after a week of night shift, I don't know if I have ADD or OCD or I am just a PITA hmm might have to ask someone????

    I'm like Carrie, kind of quiet. but must say Jan's MB quilt came together so beautifully--turquoise sashings really pull it all together.
    And then Jeanie's Orca Bay--another beauty coordinated so well.
    Love seeing the DJ's--so keep them coming.
    Oh and such cute puppies--our lone one went to a a new home last weekend.
    Today had cousins from a distance for lunch--all very last minute. Yesterday got a call from one of them and could we get together for lunch and I thought why not just come here so a mad dash of cleaning as I had the dining room table strewn with batik scraps. But so worth it. The oldest is 96, still quilts and drives! Her daughter drove her down and then a couple other cousins came up from the south--also quilters. We've decided to make it an annual affair.
    I started another project--really out of my box. Friday my QB and I went to LQS for monthly get together and they are having a BOM with Tula Pink's blocks.

    http://tulapink.com/2013/04/24/city-...-quilt-blocks/

    No I didn't sign up for the BOM--they are doing 6 of the 6" at a time--but I bought the book and have been going through my batik scraps--so far have over half the blocks cut and ready to sew. Very easy blocks to piece and will be a great scrap reducer for me. May not make them all, but going to work cut until I run out of batik scraps!

    Time to call it a day. Night all

    Jeanie--very pretty Orca Bay!

    Anael--your I-Spy turned out great. The black is a good contrast.

    OK--that pattern looks very interesting. Are you doing the rainbow effect across the quilt like they did in the one sample? I like the 2nd one with the light/dark washings.

    Work yesterday went well. I should get some time in the clubhouse this afternoon...unless I decide on a nap.

    HELLO! I have internet for a little bit this morning I guess that our internet problem is UNFIXABLE, apparently we live in a "dead zone"... so they dropped our price down to 15$ which is nice, but still frustrating to not be able to use internet at home

    WONDERFUL quilts!!!! OOOOOOHHHH JAN...... OOOOOoooooohhhhh Jeanie........ and OOOooooooohhhh Anael


    Puppies, are Great Pyrenees! we have been looking for another dog, one just isnt enough to keep the Coyotes away, especially with new puppies, and new goats born yesterday also. I can hear them out there at night getting to close, and only Sugar to chase them off!
    we have been looking to change breed since we lost our male. but DH cant decide what breed he wants since Pyrenees is first choice is there any other choice??? I have been looking at shelter dogs but DH says NO
    He better decide! Sugar cant run the farm by herself for long!

    OK! I LOVE the TulaPink, I have also been looking at Jaybird designs she has a couple of different looking samplers that would be fun to do.

    FACE IT LADIES we are all in the OCD ADD PITA group! it takes a certain kind of lady to make a sampler... which we are ALL of us good at

    ENJOY the day!!!! have a GOOD one!!!

    Mirabelle...BH's mystery quilt is when you take any set of coordinating scraps and sew from your stash. This last one had so many different color combinations. You could start setting aside scrap color families now for next November. I only had to add a handful of FQ's and fabric for sashing this last time.
    OK...great way to use up some scraps. Isn't it fun to quilt along with others?
    Anael...great I spy. That didn't take you long at all.
    Carrie...nice that you're back to a little more normal. It's so annoying when the body doesn't respond like you want it to!
    honchey...so nice to hear from you that one of your health issues is getting under control. Maybe one of those scooters they use for broken feet would help you get around the house easier.
    Jan..so productive in the bat cave. With longer days, is the cloud lifting at all? I hope so.
    DD...we were writing at the same time. Love hearing from you.
    Worked on my SYE yesterday and didn't realize that I got the 3rd row sewn on upside down and the weaving pattern for the sashing is all screwed up until I hung it up on my wall. Still waiting for me to do some unsewing. Maybe today and maybe not. Really want to play with with my new fabric. I got a F8s package of Barbara Brackman's newest fabric line and really like it. I still like brights but the CW designs are really growing on me. Sun is shining but very cold.

    Nice to hear from some of our "lost riders". Everyone has been very busy and productive. It's been too cold to go out so I've been sewing up a storm. Probably should dedicate some time to cleaning my house but NO!! LOL.

    Thank you, GGal, yes the cloud is lifting. It's amazing how just a little more light each day can make such a difference. Also, have the Cleveland Quilting & Sewing Expo to look forward to next week, always a fun day with quilty friends. We look at that trip as "Opening Day" for FART season--haven't been out together since November. My Discover Card bill was all of $35 this month--I need a FART LOL!!

    Have a great day all. I think today's snow was our last (please, God!).

    Anael what a beautiful I Spy you created, I like your partners in crime reference

    Raining here today, DH is in front of the tv catching up on his shows so I am off to the sewing room to finish quilting a charity quilt..

    I have decided my most important goal for April will be ---- wait for it ---------- no fabric purchases - shock horror, but my postie just delivered an order (still have 3 more to arrive) and I don't know where to put it all

    catch you all later
