    QNS--I just love your farm blocks. I used to vacation during the summer on a farm when I was a young child.There was a pump in the kitchen for water and a well outside. No bathroom in the house either!! I remember it now fondly--didn't like it then. Anne

    Great blocks, ladies. You all did so well--I had trouble with 65-spatial relations problem. I couldn't "see" this one (if that makes sense). You all continue to amaze and impress me.

    Blocks 65 & 66

    I used fabric that "blends" rather than contrasts for #65-I could not get those points right!

    Hi Ladies, I also had problems with the points on the inside. What I did was to pin the points together then every 1/2", put the sewing machine needle down into the point and then sewed from the middle of the block(where the point was) to the edge of the block. I then turned the block around and sewed from the middle out to the other side --removing the pins as you sew.

    Hi Ladies
    Managed to get my blocks done on time this week. I also had a few problems with #65 but I am not going to redo it.

    I was supposed to go to patchwork today but the highway is closed AGAIN due to flooding. This is the fifth closure since Christmas. We have had 42 inches of rain so far for March and it is only the 17th. I am so over it
    :-(

    I think I will hide out in my sewing room today

    yes Anne, I am. I think thats the reason why I havent had to much trouble making my points match. its soooo much easier when you can FEEL the points.

    Hi DD, I was taught to handpiece first before anything else in quilting. I really enjoyed it. I have a hard time sewing in a straight line. I have to mark everything when handpiecing and I just don't have the patience or the eyesight when doing it now. I might try a few blocks again just for the heck of it.

    All the blocks are so pretty. Guess I have put mine on the back burner for a while.

    Has anyone completed their quilt yet? Would love to see pictures of completed quilts or sashing used and fabric used for cornerstones and side triangles and backing.
