    Gee, isn't it fun when fabric just hops along to journey home with us..its love at first sight!! I have some Kona purchased by the bolt, cream and butter and Champagne that I would share with other PC riders. Color charts are listed on line for Kona, Champagne is a grey-lilght-brown, very light off white color, cream is a very pale yellow-white, and butter is more 'yellow' color.,,have talked about buying it by the bolt before. Much cheaper, although have not seen any good buys in the last several months. So still waiting before buying any more, but have plenty on hand to 'gift' a quarter or half yard.

    Scraps I have; maybe a semi load of them...at least a u-haul. Just about every color of the rainbow. Lord, I gotta tell St. Peter, I need 3 lifetimes just to use it all up!!! And 3 book cases full of patterns and another full of quilt magazines.

    Oh good news from the Netherlands. Positive images of healthy babies are heading east!
    I'm here for just a second--saw this thread and thought of you GGal. Would you give this a try?

    OK...thanks for the spray baste link. It sounds reasonable and worth a try.
    Alright...I have another challenge for this mysery...I just finished the basic piecing for my first block and just LOVE it! My first thought was to make one for me but if I did that for every block, the quilt would be tooooo large. Then I remembered a quilt I did last year called Siblings. There was one 12 inch and one 6 inch block if each pattern. So for everyone I send you guys, I'm planning to make a 6 inch duplicate. Then I will have two ways to remember how unique and special each one of you are.

    Anael, what great news on Isa. Now that her tiny body doesn't have to work so hard with the ductus hopefully this will allow her to grow and heal. Isn't it amazing the surgeries they can do on such tiny, tiny babes? Now, to get Bram's fungus infection cleared up!

    Ggal what a great idea to make the smaller, duplicate blocks! I had so much fun making the 4" copies for PC quilt that I may do the same with these--thanks for the idea. Don't 12" blocks seem huge?? I keep thinking I cut wrong since I haven't done large blocks in such a long time.

    Isa is doing ok, she is recovering from the surgery very well. If all goes like today she will be back this week!
    Bram is doing ok too. He's sound asleep. Those are the messages we have been waiting for! Let's hope they continue like this.

    Anael, Ahem. But they are very small and under two years, so they will have their ups and downs...but downs can turn quickly into ups.

    Slowly, making progress in the sewing room, very slow...Storm of storms moving in on Thursday is the weatherman's prediction...8 to 12 inches of snow...Right! And I am buying another lottery ticket tomorrow morning. I believe when I see it. But getting prepared with blood pressure medicine and necessities added to the pantry. Then back to the sewing room after that. DD finally got her letter I sent to Lincoln, NE a week ago today from Unionville, Mo...pony express would have delivered it quicker. Centerville, Iowa, would have had it there in 2 days. Mystery of it is what happened to it in Missouri that kept it too long. Hope QuiltE you got your package of BBs today.

    Ggal I like your idea of 6 inch blocks, mmmm will have to think about that one....
    I spent last evening reading (studying) the list of participants and their choices, pulled out so many books looking for ideas, I think I can now sit and cut with a clear head or maybe a befuddled one, who knows. I haven't started pulling out fabrics yet
    QNS it sounds like you don't need to go FARTing for a long time, but I agree on buying background fabric by the bolt, I keep a bolt of Kona cotton in white, cream, black and dark blue. It always comes in handy.

    Gardnergal - I have to laugh because I thought the same thing about my first Mystery Block. Gosh I love it so much, and it is not quite finished yet! I know if we love our blocks, then you guys will love them too! (Hopefully!) I also thought about making one for me too, but your idea of a 6" block would work better! Great idea!!!!

    Great news on Isa and Bram continuing to do so well. Thanks for those updates Anael!

    You are right Mrabelle, but the FART trips will continue at every opportunity or excuse.

    GGal I will withhold comments until after I have my first mystery block done; its an unknown factor at this time. So happy you like the one you made; may we all love what we make for the mystery block.

    QuiltE, I am still waiting to hear your loud yell from Canada that you have your BBs.

    After looking thru all sorts of blocks I finally decided on one for my mystery block....Why is is so difficult to choose???why is it so hard to decide on colors or shades of the chosen colors...It's a mystery!!! That's why!!!

    I am also going to make the 6" blocks to match....are we missing the little 6" buggers???

    Good news about the babies Anael...praying that it continues...

    I've been swapping 2.5" & 1.2" pieces here on the board and I've been doing mindless sewing off and on for 2 days now...it's real easy and goes fast ..the only problem I have is not matching colors and just grabbing from the basket....a photo will follow.

    It's been very windy here the last couple of days and cold... brrrrr....weather predictions are some snow and rain for you guys in the drought area in midwest. I hope , I hope you get it...

    I don't know what happened but I feel very energetic today and in a very good mood...My niece would say my chakres? are in order....

    Thanks QNS for your explanation and kind words. Here Ahem means you disagree with what's been said so that's why I was wondering.

    Isa was doing so well she's back with Bram now! One day after surgery and before the doctors said she had to stay at least a week in Utrecht in the UMC. What a girl! Bram had a quiet night and my DS was able to hold him today for the very first time. He said Bram settled down very quickly and enjoyed being with his dad! So another milestone for Bram, out of the incubator for the first time and cuddled by his dad for the first time. I'm sure my DDIL took some pictures. As soon as I have them I will post them.

    Good Morning Ladies ... still with my latest mail check. Later this afternoon I'll stalk the PO again and see what I might find!

    MiraB ... any better luck down under?
    And to our Dear Sweet Fearless Leader Honchey ....

    Homemade Spray Glue ... curious, but hesitant!!! I detest June Tailor ... but appreciate 505 very much, though I hate the price. So please let me know when some of the rest of you try it!

    GGal ... GMTA ... I've been thinking about doing twin blocks or little sisters too! Just hadn't quite decided what I might do. Although, if any of you want a full sized quilt, then the 12" blocks are not too big. My white sampler as 12" blocks in a 5x5 layout with sashing/borders. Though making 6" duplicates will change some of our colour schemes!

    Honchey ... ITA whenever I have worked with 12" blocks, they seem so huge and awkward now! When I started the 8" 8" PCs they seemed so huge. I'm getting used to them, though I will fess, I still like my 6"FWS size to work with! Or ......... we could go smaller and shrink them down further to 4" blocks!!

    QNSue ... refill the pantry, batten the hatches and then you can sit and sew .......... and let DH look after the cooking during the storm!

    Honchey ... what are your plans for the postage stamp blocks you've made? Or is that the start of 12 PCMR blocks?

    Anael ... tears of joy came when I read about the progress of the twins. And then floods came when I saw the sweet pics. So glad that Isa is back to her "home" hospital.

    Request Please!! ... do any of you have any somewhat realistic PP patterns for farm animals? Or know of any good links? If so I'd appreciate them. Size doesn't matter, as with this new handy-dandy printer, I can deal with that! Please? and Thanks!

    QuiltE, do you need realistic animals? I will have to go through my books, no idea if I have any. But I need to know what kind of animals you're looking for.

    ​The box arrived with your flannels! I'm speechless!!!! I've never seen such gorgeous flannels before! I don't know how to thank you all. All I can say is THANK YOU!!!

    QuiltE, these are 2.5" squares and the plan is to do a quilt called 5 at 5..and it's supposed to resemble film strips..only...I don't want a white background...I was thinking a toned down or burnt orange, rust...that's what developed film looks like...
    It seems like I have to have alot of irons in the fire...I can bounce from one to the other without getting bored...

    Anael. precious little babies...

    QuiltE. I will browse my programs & see if there any suitable...what size block are you looking to do??
