    Oh QNSue, I hope I can say that too in a couple of years! The triplets are ok, my DDIL has to go to another hospital for a check up on Wednesday and on Friday to the local hospital. If they're premature she can't deliver them here so that's why she also has check ups in another hospital.

    Twins or triplets usually come early; with twins occurring on Father's side of the family, they x-rayed me at seven months on our first child in Alaska...if it had been twins they were going to send me straight to the hospital 60 air miles away until I gave birth. It was a single large female, so they let me remain at the small Air Force Base until I went into natural childbirth...then they rushed me to the bigger hospital. She weighed nine pounds, 10 ounces, and 21 inches long, had dimples in her knees, she was so fat!!

    I wish the best for your DDIL...and you need to share pictures back with all of us when they arrive. At least, through Carrie and maybe she will update all of us.

    Thanks QNS, I will share pictures but you'll have to wait a while LOL They're due end of April (full term) but expected to arrive beginning of March. We'll see and hope for the best.

    Hello Anael ... I'll echo QNSue's "what you do, you do very well". Yes, indeedy-do! And like OKSGlad, Churn Dash is one of my favourites, though I know #111 was called Monkey Wrench. Oh what fun, to do the FWS blocks and meet in the middle. Keep posting, and we'll keep cheering you on.

    I'm on the excitedly waiting list too. And whistling a happy tune for the beginning of March ... the 7th would be just dandy! Here's to good health for all, right thru to their safe arrival!

    QuiltE...can I deduce that your birthday is March 7? Wouldn't that be a trip to have triplets arrive on that day...no pun intended.

    Anael...beautiful block.

    They just phoned from the hospital. For now everything is ok, the twins are 1 week behind in development compared to the third (I call him/her lone ranger LOL) and between the twins there's a difference too and that needs close monitoring. I don't know what they're able to do, I guess nothing.

    It's so nice to have you all as my cheerleaders I'm happy to have you as my friends!

    I wouldn't know why you'd think that?
    I was hoping for the other set of triplets ... they went full term arriving on the 26th, four years ago.

    Now we are all tripping over triplets??? Three times of the joy of one...I ask my second cousin if she would have any more children after her triplets, and she said, "No way!" These are enough!!!

    Guess its like my Father-in-law said of his six children, "Would not take a million $$$$$$$ for any one of the kids I have, and would not give a wooden nickel for a another one!!"

    And here we are w/the last one - a bit later than most - but now off to post a pic of the whole thing laid out on the design wall waiting to sew together the last few chunks. This quilt has hung on the design wall in the AZ house, my classroom last teaching job where I taught a geometry class building quilts, & now in my new home's studio in CA. Looking forward to designing the border - thinking about a series of 2" squares set on point inside the 7" border.

    Those fabric choices are great. I love rust colored fabric and Wrench (aka Churn Dash) is one of my favorite blocks.

    I have this rope in my hands. I can't figure out whether I found a rope or lost my horse.
