    QNS--I haven't actually cut any fabric or sewn any blocks for the new FW1939s quilt yet. My girlfriend was here for a week. I was teaching her how to paper piece so she can join us come August for this quilt along. She was able to get 4 or 5 blocks finished while here. I have the binding to sew down on my 2nd PC quilt and then do just a little more quilting on DD's quilt and add the binding on that before I start my working with fabrics for the new FW1930s quilt....I am really trying to be good to get these things done as tempting as it is.

    Carrie, four or five blocks of FW1930s? You are a stronger person than I; I could not resist sewing a few blocks up to see what it would look like and IF I could do them. . . my own way which is different from the norm and the way you taught your friend. How wonderful to look forward to doing each block with a friend...at your side.

    I have quilt miles to go in the month of July to prepare to do the new project... Time will tell how much I get done. So back to the daily tasks here so I can have a chance of getting there. Good luck to all and have a wonderful weekend.

    QNS, I have the first 2 blocks made in 2 different fabric choices. I was originally planning to use the scraps from FWS & PC but I just didn't love them when I made the blocks. So I tried the same 2 blocks in batiks and I like them much better. I have them on my design wall to see which way I want to go when the time comes. Batiks are a challenge for me--getting the medium, light, dark combo. That's why I'm leaning towards batiks--by the time I do 90+ blocks I should learn a lot about color.

    MORE rain--I need an ark!! We're under a tornado warning right now but the sun is shining and it's raining. What strange weather we're having. Glad I live on a hill. But wow, this weather is hard on my joints--I hurt where I didn't even know I had joints.

    JanRN, to quote a friend, "All my joints hurt, and what does not hurt, does not work anymore, and that is not all bad!" I love the thought of batiks in the new quilt project.

    Honchey, that number of blocks would put you in the lead position.

    Still trying to discipline myself in finishing up some UFOs and not adding more. It is not working very well. LQS offered bargin prices to me...on two pieces of fabric. Sigh. They come home with me. LOL!

    Finished FW PC quilt AND DD's Crazy Quilt

    I was able to finish up the binding last night on BOTH of the quilts I've been working on this month. Sorry pictures aren't the best...it is cloudy/raining here today.

    DD's is crazy quilt blocks with all batiks.

    The PC quilt uses Kansas Troubles fabrics plus the teal/green in some blocks and the sashing.

    Wow Carrie, those are beautiful. Isn't it fun to finally see the end of our hard work! We are in Whidbey Island, WA visiting friends right now. We will probably be here a couple of weeks.

    Great job, Carrie. Wonderful to finish both of them. Perhaps it will spur me onward to complete things as well.

    Have fun, JeanieG. Love the Pacific Northwest...and all its beauty.

    Love them both, Carrie. I bet DD loves her Crazy Quilt--great colors. PC quilt fits your daybed perfectly; what a nice pop of color in there. Congrats on finishing both of them.

    Wow OK, that is great!!! Does the money go to a 4-H club or to the County Fair to help cover costs?

    The money goes to the 4-H program to help cover membership costs, Carrie, so I really feel good about it.

    Wonderful news, OK. It will help the 4-H group...and they will ve very happy about that I am sure.

    Great road trip today; we hit four big Quilt Shops and ate at Hickory Park and some of the meal come home with me. The Mo girls who traveled in my car had never been to Ames, Iowa, so they enjoyed the meal and the big quilt store there. We played musical chair, so the driver got a one on one with everyone in the car and everyone seemed to enjoy it more and feel great about the long ride...next date will be July 30th for the Crazy Redhead's Warehouse sale. Its great to be back home tonight.

    What a good person you are to do all that you do for your charities & the 4H group.. The basket was a bountiful one...

    As you can see by the time this is posted I didn't sleep very well last night. I've been up since 5 a.m.

    Lots of July 4th Sales going on all over...I hope to be very good in spite of them I did cut another quilt while in NC..It's a ribbon weave stack n whack.. I've done a few before and ladies in NC wanted to know how to do it..Hobby Lobby had a clearance rack & I found some suitable fabric for it and now I need the palest of orangy peach soliid or lightly textured fabric for the background side triangles.it will have a navy framing border then a bigger ? haven't decided border...It's very colorful..will post a pic after I get it layed out.. the blocks aren't sewn together yet..
    I think it's almost time for coffee.. later H.

    This was a fun quilt to make. I made all the large blocks then had to make small blocks and various borders then put it together like a jigsaw puzzle. Have a happy & safe 4th of July holiday--enjoy our freedom and thank a veteran.Name:  4th of July.jpg

    Something happened to my post never showed up???

    Happy 4th of July Everyone....lots of firecrackers going off all day in the neighborhood... quiet otherwise..

    Love your quilt Jan...so many different sizes!

    QNS, I tried something for the first time and it worked out great...in the centers where 8 pieces come together I sewed just to the centers' point on each seam, back stitched, trimmed to the stitch line , then joined the two sections together, flattened the seams opposite each other and the center twirled..I can't believe it..no extra thread in the end of the seams made it lay nice & flat...WOW!!! is all I can say..
