    I am an early riser and after reading some of the forum I couldn't stand it so I got up and made my next block. I should just work on next weeks now while I am on a roll!

    Deecee, you are such an asset to this thread! I sometimes wonder if I were to post something truly UGLY what positive you would come up with. That said, you do make me ready to go and and do more right now! Thanks.

    I love the way that one pops! I always have to go back and forth with all of them to verify they are they same squares! The fabric rally changes each one of them!

    I do the same thing Nancy. I keep flipping backwards and forwards thinking gosh, it is the same block.

    Judith - I call ugly "quirky" and quirky is individual and individuality is good. :thumbup:

    Now get back to that sewing machine.............. we are all waiting for more pics. :lol: :lol:

    I'm in! Will get the book from Amazon. Many thanks, it looks like a lot of fun.

    Okay, book ordered. 68 pages on this thread! Wow, are we ambitious or what?

    Welcome BettyGee.

    Some of us have nearly finished our blocks as we started in January following Jupiter's schedule (on page 1).

    But there are those who are just starting out or have been following their own schedule.

    These blocks are fun to do and if you wade through all 68 pages you will see some wonderful fabric/colour combinations. Some have chosen to do the applique part by hand and some have chosen to use machine applique. You can use a specific colour scheme or go scrappy from your stash. Either way will give a beautiful result.

    Let us know what method you are using and please post pics of your fabric choices. We all love to see pics.

    Didn't I say you would find a way to have a positive spin, Deecee? I like your style!

    Hello, BettyGee! I am only on my 7th or so block so come join me. We look forward to having you send pictures of your blocks and your fabric choices!

    Well let's see. I will give up my weekly full body massage, my facial, manicure, pedicure, high tea at the Brown Palace, tennis lessons at the Cherry Hills Country Club, lunch with the girls, skip the oil change on the Porsche and devote myself entirely to making blocks I might catch up with jtquilts by October.

    All kidding aside, I'm excited to join in as it looks like super fun. Other than the manicure I've never done any of those other things and have to say I'd much rather quilt than drink tea at a swanky hotel.

    I've learned so much from this board and have been encouraged to try new techniques from seeing all the beautiful work you do.

Old dogs and new tricks . . . .I read something about that on the forum recently! LOL Thanks, Jup.

    I am so excited about finding the built-in card reader that I am wandering about looking for something to take a picture of so I can send it to someone! LOL!

    You would be amazed, and I would be embarrassed, if I showed you all the foot photos I have. I was working on a quilt with a shoe theme, mentioned it at a family reunion, and all of a sudden all my cousins and their kids wanted their feet on my quilt. So... I photoed all of them, and I gotta tell you, there are some ugly toes in there! lol ... and I still have not finished that quilt.

    hugs, Jupiter

    That sounds like quite a quilt! I think you need to post WIP and then, whenever you finish, the completed quilt!

    I agree with Judith - that sounds like a lot of fun.

    Love to see pics.

    I know this is off topic.... but I've had a run going on a portrait quilt I am making and I cannot shift to block making right now. My creative side is taking over from my structured side. (and the dog ate my homework!)

    So I am posting a photo of my portrait quilt in progress. It's from a photo of my grandson, Nathaniel-age 5, playing his DS gameboy.

    hugs, Jupiter

    Wow Jup, that's fabulous - and yes, you are excused for not block sewing.

    Slashed Album is due this week but after that wonderful portrait pic I want to rush out and do something creative.

    Tell me what a "slashed album" is, Dee Cee... I might be missing something good!

    hugs, Jup
