    Yes, Sunliten - we are enjoying the rainy weather here too!

    I hope so! I am tired to death of this heat, and we could always use the rain. In fact, I love when it rains in winter. Been unusually warm this November, just like last year. Oh well, this too shall pass! I hope! But it should not be 90 the end of November, this is just wrong wrong wrong.

    Where in SoCal are you, sunlite? My daughter still lives there, is now in Long Beach, but we used to live in the San Fernando Valley.

    good brief - other end of the valley - West Hills. We were almost neighbors! Our area was orange and walnut groves before the developers came in, in the 50s and 60s

    I am so far behind, I am still only at the nine patches. I am hoping to catch up in a couple of weeks. Just to much going on right now. Thank you Judy for putting this on, and hopefully I will be finished with this one before you start the next one I am almost done with the last one you did......

    I split mine up and am having all different ones. Might be done sewing together 1 tomorrow. Will post if I do. I'm actually going to really like it and in the process got over one of my biggest fears to start doing. Now it'll probably be in a lot of the things I do. Just a hint, show you tomorrow and see what you think.I really like the pattern and will do it again properly, but didn't like my color choices together. The red and white quilt turned out beautiful, I love that.
    Oksewnsew you can do like I have done and make 2 quilts instead of 1, maybe you'd be happier with that and you wouldn't waste so much material having it sit as a UFO.

    Hahaha Jaba, good idea, but think I'll leave it whole. I'm just so used to doing things in pinks, and colors other than yellow, that it takes me a bit to get used to it. I just wanted to do something different. It'll get finished, I promise..lolo

    Well I say for a bunch of quilters we sure are color phobic here on this quilt I guess the deal with sewing together a combo you arent happy with is that instead of using what you ARE happy with and finding a new way with it you could truly end up with something you would not be happy to put out anywhere. Fabric is highly precious in my home I can not afford to have that happen so I am just thankful this is passable the combos I had and they are going to a NON quilter who will just be thrilled to get it and its girly colores which she likes. so there I am safe. That SAID I will do another mystery quilt because it was fun to do with all of you, Judy made it possible to see I can do a design I would have thought I would never take on (challenging too many pieces) and made it.. simple. I could hug her for this. I will be sitting at the train station bags packed.

    ? are you sure that the yellow and y,b,w half square triangles are going that way??? I think the spinning star in the center might be the y,b,w, print ????? or it is just early in the morning and my eyes are playing tricks
    my favorite color is yellow so love your blocks !!!!

    Cool

    Well finally got the last pieces sewn together and just a few to still square up. I put together the final block on my design wall to see what they look like. Boy is it going to be a bright quilt.

    quilt addict, the large HST blocks on the orange blocks need to be changed - the squiggly print should be next to your 9-ptch. I noticed sunlite did the same on her yellow and green HST.

    border

    This is what I ended up doing with the lavender and white one. Just have to decide if I should put another border on. Seems like it needs 1 more so am looking at adding the lavender and then binding with the floral. What do you think? Part of Christmas for great grand baby.Name:  DSCF0979.JPG

    Jaba, I like what you did with this! Yes, lavender border with floral binding would be perfect!

    It's going to be a week or two (maybe 3) before I can get back to working on mine.
    Have to get some Christmas gifts done, especially the ones I need to get mailed.
    We have a birthday party on Dec 8th for 3 of the grandkids and then a ballet performance on Dec 15th to go to.
    Don't know when I'm going to find time to get everything done. Did get the tree and decorations done yesterday but haven't started on the cookies and other baking yet.
    I love all the quilts that have been posted so far and can't wait to finish mine.

    Oksewnsew, I like the corrected version, but actually like the first version better. When I start putting my blocks together, I am going to try putting them together both ways and see which I like better. I have the last strips partially cut. Just need some time to put the blocks together.

    Thanks Judy, I've enjoyed this ride. I just stowed away occasionally on the others, but did not sew along.

    Jaba, I love what you did with your lavender blocks.

    Hi FIVE JABA that is perfect! oh so much much better in fact its like you had thought of it all along. Bet you can do something similar with your other one. Oh oh such good ideas here. Grammamary you havent baked cookies yet? OMG you sew sew sew, ballet (what fun) and put up decorations and woe is the woman who hasnt baked her cookies yet. Sigh. tough tough tough. I need 1/2 your energy! I could do oh so much. like not nap 4 hours every day. sheesh. cookies are sorta backburnered here. No kids yet so closer to when they arrive will come out the baking fairy. Steve would EAT every single one if I dont last minute those. Besides.. no time I have 'things' to do lol. I have to say I started singing a Christmas carol We Wish You a Merry Christmas, in the van yesterday with my driver. She started humming it and pretty soon here are two women in the fifties singing this song like we could sing which oh boy we can not and smiling while we did it. She looked at me after and said YOUR NUTS do you know that? I smiled and thought well who was singing with me??? lol life is good. oh better go put on some ornaments the fire is just catching and boy I love that smell .. going to go with it. Besides my hallmark movie A Christmas Carol! just finished. And I am out of songs right now lucky lucky everyone.

    WOW, what a difference it made changing your blocks to a matching nine patch. I LOVE IT!! Mind if I might use your idea on mine? My color's are the same as yours & i really like the look. Thank you for sharing with all of us today!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!
