    I love your 50 Stars, Mirab. Agree with QNS, the stars in the sashing really make a statement.

    w4m--what fun to see your own quilt on display in the window!

    mirabelle--your 50 Stars are coming right along! Very different colors for you, but great contrast.

    When I signed up for the QOTS newsletter I happened to see their KT BOTM starting this month and had to sign up. :thumb up: I got fabrics and directions for a 12" block and also a 3" block (they included a pp pattern for the small one).

    Carrie, I like your Kansas trouble block and the colors that were used in that. I have added some KT to my stash and learning how much I love it.

    Well taday was a crazy busy one! It started w/me takin' my DGS ta the park. (The 1 yro.) The mowers were at the park & I couldn't just let him roam. He kept gittin' frustrated w/me & just sittin' in the grass. LOL The grass was about 7" tall & when he sat down in it he almost disappeared. I was carrin' his bag, my purse, & my Rt 44 Diet Dr Pepper. I usually will carry my stuff about 30 ft ahead o' him & put it down. Then I will go back & pick him up & carry him ta about 30 ft ahead o' my stuff. Then as I go back & git my stuff he roams around ta his hearts delight. After a bit I'll repeat the process. I couldn't leave him w/those big mowers agoin' back & forth at the park so I'd just wait till he would decide ta follow me ta the playground. By the time we got ta the playground all he wanted ta do was walk on the sidewalk that surrounds the equipment. He circled it about 50 times. At least he had a good time. He sure was worn out by the time I got him home.

    Then I met DH at the house for lunch.

    Next I headed back ta the LQS ta work on my serger project again. That was alotta fun but I had ta cut it short 'cause DDIL had been given a Fisher Price mini playground & she needed a truck ta go & git it. Since I am now drivin' DH's Tundra I said that I'd help. (I had ta leave the LQS at 3:30 but before I left my teacher gave me the last steps ta git the purse finished.) Well DDIL wanted the playground for my backyard. Another thing for my DGSons ta play w/when they git here. Hmmmm I might take it ta Brady. All the kids will just love it.

    I worked on the li'le serger purse tanight & it's almost finished. I'm pretty excited about all the things I learned. I really can see myself usin' it on some o' my blocks. The pulled flatlock stitch gives the seams such a nice decorative look.

    QNS - thank you. I'm really happy with how they showed my quilt. Funny that it looks like the quilt was made for that window as it is the exact width.

    Great will power on your hop. I agree that great company, good scenery and seeking out new shops is a wonderful way to spend a day.

    Mirabelle - beautiful.

    thanks carriem - to say I am pleased would be a gross understatement.
    Your blocks look good. That little one looks like it was quite the challenge.

    dublb - sounds like your dog had a good time and got lots of exercise despite the restrictions. Yes, better to play it safe with those large mowers around.

    Row By Row Experience ... I was in an LQS today that is part of this and had a sneak peak of their row! Also, saw the free kits for the July Shop Hop.

    Honchey ... here's to a fun month!
    CarrieM ... is your Connie's in the Row by Row?
    MiraB ... you can live vicariously thru us ... and sit at home and make the Rows while we are out Hopping!



    W4Me ... I'm surprised too, that it is totally free too. I think last year was such a fiasco and they got so much negative feedback, that they got the message that they needed to up things a little if they wanted to get a following. The one LQS has told me several times that July is her biggest month, so she has no problems with the freebie. Certainly better we get these blocks ... than something we really do not want. Your Canada D'Eh! is even more impressive seeing it in the window.

    MiraB ... *gasp* your stars are beautiful. What a special touch of the corner stars, twinkling away!

    CarrieM ... a nice start to a new quilt!

    To answer the question about the QOTS Minis ... yes, I have the first three months completed.
    All from scraps, including the black that was triangle offcuts from an earlier quilt.
    So has anyone else done them? ... please do share and show!

    Yessss ... please join me Anael ... the scraps from your Carol Doak and we could have twin minis!

    Absolutely no clue as to what I will do with them!
    For now, the plan is to just make them each month and see how they evolve.
    And what inspiration might strike along the way.

    I finished that li'le purse! I added handles ta it & used a big snap instead o' velcro. It sure looks very girley. My DGD will just love it! She will be 8 on Aug 1st. It'll be a great B-day present. I hope ta take a pict o' it tamarrow.

    QE--I like your little blocks. No Connie's isn't participating in the Row by Row...I looked at the website and it doesn't look like there are any shops in Iowa doing it. Maybe because they all just got done doing the month long All Iowa Shop Hop?

    Dublb--sounds like a fun project. I look forward to seeing a picture.

    CarrieM ... that would make sense, that Iowa isn't part of it. It's the first year for Ontario. Looks like the only cost to the shops to be involved would be their pattern copies, so minimal. I commented that at the shop I was in yesterday and she gave me a song and a dance that there was all their design and development time! Well, OK!

    Gorgeous QuiltE. I seemed to have missed the info on the QOTS. Do you mind posting a link? If they are really mini they aren't for me.

    Thank you, W4Me!! .... I keep thinking of it as Hawaiian Nights!

    You need to be on their regular email list. They pull the previous months from their system, so I will email it all to you. They finish at 4" .... so far they have been easy peasy to make. You'll have no problems doing them, just pick some fabric and go for it!

    Thank you QNS. I'll check the site out. 4" is tiny but as paper piecing is doable. Good practice, too.

    Yes, QuiltE, Hawaiian Nights. Perfect.

    Here are pict's o' th li'le purse I made for my DGD. I made a few changes in the pattern. First I added the handles & the decorative stitch around the top ta hold the handles up. I added the hand embroidered flower at the top o' the crazy side & used a snap instead o' velcro.

    dublb - that is just darling! I cannot believe you made it on a serger. I have a serger, but don't use it except for serging the edges of fabric that I put in the washing machine. It is great for that! I'm sorry I got the serger, I thought for sure I would use it more!
