    After the holiday break, its time to get back to it Ladies! This week is a good mix of pp or traditional piecing and applique.

    J3 was a combination of both for me. I pp'd all of the corner triangles, then cut the center square out. I sewed the corner triangles to the center square. Then I used the freezer paper method of applique to add the beige center section. In the software, it is template "D" . I found that it went together easily using this method.

    L14 was all applique. I actually sewed 2 sets (1 larger as the larger circle and 1 smaller as the inner circle) of regular 4 patch blocks. I then cut out circle templates out of plastic. I centered my 4 patch blocks on the circle templates, basted around to make a good circle, then appliqued these down.

    M6 is fairly straight forward pp'ing or traditional piecing.

    I have NO idea why K3 is in this pictute--sorry

    RS7- UGH! I did a fairly crappy job on this block, but its in the quilt as "finished". I PP'd the bottom section, then used the back basting method to do the hearts. It appears that I should have used freezer paper.

    Have fun getting back into the swing of Jane and Happy New Year!

    I think everyone's blocks look great. :thumbup:

    I love the way Patti combines fabrics!

    Jan's blocks are always crisp and perrrfect! They are closer to Jane's than the rest of us, so her quilt will be still be lovely over a hundred years from now!!

    Elle, your asian's fabrics are stunning, the fabrics are so lovely!

    Luv, you are still working on two, shock and awe!! I wanted to make a second scrappy, geez, its been all I could do to keep up with this one. I would love to do another, but its kind of like having baby, I really don't want to do the work!!! :D

    You are so kind Meredith. Thank you! I wonder if someone will be taking good care of it 100 years from now?

    No Patti these are not the redoīs I will have to show you them when I start them. Some I have the originals and the others I was so disgusted I threw them in the bin, knowing then I would have to redo them. Just didnīt realise I had managed to get up to 12 redos. I am aiming for 4 today so posting it will now make me do them, some are nearly finished a bit of applique to do.
    Thanks for all thenice comment son my asian blocks

    Jan, thats a question to ponder....where will our quilts be 100 yrs. from now? I don't have any kids, so I can envision mine all laid out in the yard at one of those estate auctions...all going for $5.00 or something...:roll:

    Oh no Patti that would be awful. You have to leave it to the local museum

    Much better idea

    Oh no, Patti, it would never make it to the sale, it would be purchased presale, as somebody would snap it up quickly!! Only $5, no way on that either! Certainly, it would go for more, plus these quilts are heavy!! My center section with the square blocks is heavy, and I haven't even sewn on the tris and kites. All those seams!!! :lol:

    My daughter has become very interested since the center section went together. It will be hers later for sure!

    If I saw a "collectible" quilt for sale with this much effort in it and it was 100 years old, I would buy it even if sections were damaged. I have purchased old quilt blocks, they do have value!

    I figure that one of the nieces would "bite the bullet" and force herself to take it home :wink:.

    It is heavy Meredith! I only have the 3 rows sewn together so far (and mine has the batting too). I decided that I will sew the center together in segments...A-C...D-F..G-I...J-M..then sew them together. It will be easier to work with that way.

    I, too, thought the center section was terrible heavy! I was wondering just how much the completed quilt would weigh.

    Has anyone else noticed that a basted quilt doesn't weigh as much as the quilted quilt after it has been trimmed, but not bound? Does thread really weigh THAT much?
