    New Quilting Bee, July 2017

    Well, you all are sure anxious..lolo It IS only the 1st, and I said they would be posted on the 1st, didn't say what time on the 1st. I've been trying to get something embroidered for my DGD, her 10th birthday is Monday, and wanted to give her something I'd made.. So guess I'd better get the July blocks posted for you ladies. Hope you enjoy them.

    **Requirements: 10 1/2" blocks unfinished, post pics of your blocks and be sure to chat.

    LOLO Jaba, I know what you mean about 'grandma time out'...My 11 yr old grandson has been with me for the last 2 weeks...He's going home later, I may not know what to do with myself...haha (bet I find something tho). He's gone to the new Transformers movie with his uncle Scott, so it's quiet around here for a bit. Glad ya'all like the blocks..

    Nice blocks! I did mine this afternoon as a break from my major project...a queen size pp "Compass Roses" top (This afternoon I finished putting together the center, which is about 60" x 60"..pic below).

    On Auntie's Puzzle, there is a minor error in the directions. You do make four units of an HST and Color one square, as noted at the beginning of page 2...but two must be as shown and two are in reverse (HST faces a different direction).It will make sense when you put together the top and bottom rows.

    You are ahead of me Chasezzz. I hope the posting does help someone out Oksewnsew. These are interesting new blocks. Of course, I am making them worse, because I love HST as a single piece of fabric and I just don't think these blocks are going to let me remodel them. We'll see......

    Hello everyone! I'm new to quilting board and am looking forward to jumping in to the Quilting Bee. Right now, I'm feeling ambitious and am going to try to "catch up"... we'll see how that actually goes!

    Thanks Barb for the easy reference of all the blocks. I look forward to "meeting" all of you!

    Welcome Jayne, I do hope you enjoy it, we have a bunch of very nice stitchers/ladies here. I don't believe we have any gentlemen in it yet. Just follow the beginning statement and you should do fine..

    Hi, Jayne! Welcome! Everybody is nice and friendly here. Just jump in and if you have any questions-ask away. I love all the pictures posted. It's amazing what a difference different fabrics make in how a block looks.

    Thank you for the list. I am not part of the group. Guess, I missed this one or did not bother to check it out to know what it was. Any way I will lurk about if that is OK.

    WMUTeach...don't just lurk...join in! You make the blocks for yourself. Just post pictures to show that you did them. You can start now with July's blocks (you have all month to do them), or go to the beginning of the list that Barb has posted above and start there. It's just for the fun of making the blocks and sharing them. If you are industrious, you can catch up. Or just start now and continue for the rest of the year. Totally up to you.

    Love the blocks for July and the bonus block as well. But since I've yet to do June's blocks, I have to play catch-up again! Seems that life keeps getting in the way. How did I ever get anything done before I retired - that is the question. Oh well, you ladies are very patient with me and I do appreciate that. Happy 4th, everyone!

    Very nice Diane, I like this, its restful looking to me. Barb, how thoughtful and wonderful of you to post all of them so far. I have a lot of catching up to do also. Finally can look at the postings, though, quietly because I am at work, then save the block addresses and then mail them to myself at home so I can use them. Can only open quiltboard at work, so sadly have to sneak it in to read. Anyway, fun blocks, love HSTs.

    Hey Jayne, welcome aboard, its a fun bunch and they are very tolarate of anything, I'm proof of that, lol.

    So I missed something, is there a bonus block each month now, or has there been just one so far....I confuse easy, especially when the computer is not co operating, lol.

    The only bonus block has been in June so far. Wonder what July will have??? Only our fearless leader knows for sure.
