    I have thought about fabric over night, and I think I will do the more modern version although I love the fabric that Laurie used...lots of scraps in blues, purples and etc., colors of a rainbow. I wlll try her suggested patterns, some I will skip after trying.

    Sounds like everyone is getting on board, and that you have the timeline onward going, Anne. Glad to hear from GrannyQ, JeanieG, JanRN, Carrie and Honchey leading us again on the trail. I will take my book on the first of June and get the spine bound...as I have with the other two Laurie Aaron Hird books.

    Everyone have a great day.

    There are 99 Blocks to this quilt. I guess because there are 99 counties in Iowa? Or the old song, "99 bottles of beer on the wall?" Just finished printing out all the paper piecing patterns.

    QNS--You are ahead of me. I did get them installed on my computer this morning though and started to decide which I won't be making since I don't need all 99. Still need to weed out about 5 more (just so you know Jan, I'm not doing many, if any, with y-seams either...like you I *can* do, but choose not to if I don't have to!)...Time to get lunch and then go to work so that will have to wait until tonight or tomorrow though.

    Hope everyone has a great day! It is beautiful here!!

    Ok, you can whip together a six inch block in very little time! The three main files on her CD is the block 'model', the paper piecing or the template file. Down in the lower left corner is an 'inch' line to compare how the printer printed it off to scale or not. This one is colorful and scrappy for sure. Wonder if any of us can find 99 different color combos to do these blocks?

    I noticed that she used a lot of solids in this quilt. Love it! I think I'll get some more of my favorite Moda Bella solids in colors I don't have (I usually use them for sashings - so have lots of neutrals). Thousands of Bolts have them for $4.99/yd.

    Nina, Marvelous photos of the flower beds & garden.

    Question...I was given a Bleeding Heart seedling..I want to put it in a planter then eventually into the ground..I also have some seeds that are still in the pods..do I wait until the pods dry out to take the seeds out? and how deep should the seeds be planted? and when to plant them I'm bringing them with me to NC..
    I found one batch of the repro fabrics after bringing some xmas wrapping paper that was in the garage upstairs...I was so happy to see them..

    Never raised Bleeding Hearts from seed. I ordered the plants on line, and set out the 'bulb' root for each of mine. I also split the roots and give to friends. Might want to google it and see what internet says. On the Wisteria seed pods, we dry them out and then plant the seeds from the pods.

    Oh my QNS - those flowers are just beautiful! I have only planted tomatoes so far this year (and there are green tomatoes on the vines). I was going to plant some leaf lettuce, but we have decided to leave after our June RV Rally and go up north to visit friends on Whidbey Island, WA. We will probably be gone about a month. I'll plant the lettuce after we return.

    Sweet, Anne. You have set the color wheel on its edge here and that will be hard to 'measure up' with our fabrics. But its nice to 'see' some examples that we can shoot for in ours.

    I went shopping for my fabric today too! The LQS was having a 20% off sale so figured this was a good time. I decided to go with 3 main prints (same design, different color ways) and then coordinating more solid colors.

    I also helped pick fabrics for a friend's quilt (she is planning to join us in August)...her pile looks more like Honchey's.

    I have 2, maybe 3 friends who are planning to join us on this new quilt along!

    Ohhhh, great fabrics Anne and Carrie! Wow, I love those 40's colors! They seem so subdued after the garish colors I've seen the last five years or so. These colors are so soothing to the eye!

    Lovely flowers & veggies Sue.
    Carrie & Anne, Lovely fabrics.
    I am still on the fence about the sew-along. I do have some 30's & 40's fabric. I haven't ordered the book yet. Hopefully I can budget it in next "money day." LOL We don't have pay-days anymore.
    We just had a big storm come through & another one is on it's way.

    Beautiful fabric, Carrie. And great news that a couple or more of your friends are joining us!

    dublb, I hope no damage to your home from the storms hitting you tonight. Weather persons are saying the weather is going to get worse there before it gets better....wet, wet and more wet for Texas.

    As I opened up the house and windows today, taking a break from the QR, I noticed I had missed the stars of our garden flowers by the house itself. So I grabbed the carmer and headed back outside:Name:  1-DSCN0156.JPG

    Nina What a beautiful flower garden you have..The ducks look pretty good too!!

    I have been collecting fabrics especially the ones shown for over 20 years..The shops where they were purchased have been closed for over 10 years..and they were also bought all over this great country.. I told DH when you stop losing golf balls I'll stop buying fabric..!

    Beautiful flowers QNS! My roses are blooming great also. I always have some in the house. I only buy roses that have a strong scent. I want them to "smell" up my house!

    Thanks for the kind words on my pictures of some of our flowers. Roses are from the front door to the East side of the house, just outside dh and guest bedrooms. The Railroad tie bed and full tire of flowers are out in the garden area. Irises line the South Side of the driveway in smaller tires, but has gotten very grassy. So dh is going to move them over to the South side of tires and replant the root without the grass, or so he says. Two Tiger tails are close to the outside night light installed by the electric company. One is in a large tractor tire, with tiger lilies budded for bloom there.

    Since its very wet here, I am 'gardening' inside in my QR...working with squares on point of Iris blooming fabric, part of the side border on the purple/green Garden Trellis Quilt; (planning a rose garden), and finishing Grandma's garden before August. Already finished the California Golden Poppies, and looking at another Garden Trellis Quilt of purple lilacs with green trellising borders.

    All of Anne's and Carrie's lovely fabrics are encouraging me to think about my stash and what I have that would work in FWQ 1930. Making 'piles' by color, e.i., yellows, oranges, reds, blues, purples, greens and light tones, some batiks. But still uncertain if I will try to do the reproduction or not. We will see later when I decide.

    Have a good one. Its going to continue to be wet here, I think.
