Amen. Enjoy the journey. It is for fun, not a job, nine to five. Love the challenge, but care more about making dh happy. Baked him cookies yesterday Pumpkin Snickerdooles.

Help. My center medallion is 23 inches square. The downloads I have are wrong and cannot access original patterns that print page 93 in templates or paper piecing. Back to zero progress. Yes, I do have the book. Maybe it means I cannot do it. Help.

QNS - always check the box that is printed at the bottom of the pattern pages to make sure they are 1". I think the patterns are correct, it is your printer setting that is incorrect.

And not printing the right page. Page 93 does not print out at all. I first printed out all the templates and paper piecing, but apparently the size is wrong and nothing I can do to get block 83 to print out.

Block 83 is on page #103. You have to print the page # - not the block #.

Page 93 is Block 73 Milkmaid's Star.


This is from the Patchwork PDF download, from her site. So it should be the same as yours!

Block 93 is on page 229. I copied my 'pages' from site listed in the book, and pages go from 1-155. Carrie forward the paper piecing, but it does the same thing, pp 1-155. I guess I could continue on the larger size, and it should all go together...which may be the only way to continue.

QNS you can use your center piece. Just don't use the 3" Flying Geese Border. Make a new solid or pieced border adjusted to the size that the finished center block+flying geese should equal. I didn't do flying geese, used print fabric. Don't give up!!

Jeanie your center looks great!! (no notifications again so missed it until today!)

QNS, I agree with Jan that you can just use the center you have. Did you print everything out already or just pieces for the center block? If just the center papers, then doing like Jan said by adding the difference with a solid border to get it to the size after flying geese is a great idea! If you have everything printed you could keep it all to the same size and maybe just not do the outer border? It just depends on how big you want your finished quilt...

Update on me...MRI will finally be next week (had to wait on insurance approval then for available appt). My shoulder is now giving me issues as well. My chiro thinks it is because I have been overcompensating for so long for my thumb/wrist that is what is causing it. I hope so! I basically do what has to be done around the house. Haven't been sewing since I finished up my last RR border a few weeks back. I can't wait to be able to work on something without pain!

QuiltingNinaSue 11-20-2020 09:23 AM

So sorry Carrie, that you are in pain. My hips (right one) is very sore in the muscles. Its hard to stand and walk with the pain..
Thanks, Jan and Carrie for the good advice. I will probably continue, since I ran all the templates and paper piecing in the beginning, and all should match the center,making it whatever size it will be. Not ding that work over, so be it.

JeanieG 11-20-2020 01:59 PM

QNS - I was thinking along the same line as you also. No big deal, the only measurement you will have to change is the the size of the sashings. Your quilt will just end up being larger.

Oooh, what lovely blocks you ladies have. Love your 'pinky' color palette, Midwestmom.

I more block and I will be all caught up with the quilt. These are the 6" block round.

We are leaving for Phoenix for Thanksgiving with one of my sons and our granddaughter on Sunday. Will be there for a week. Should have time to get caught up and also to start Bonnie Hunter's new Mystery.

One step at a time, one hour at a time, this too shall pass. I slept well last night, and made dh breakfast this morning for the first time in a long time. Yes, I like the direction I am going on the homestead quilt...yes, I am slow in making progress, but I am going forward. And petting my fabric when I am not sewing.

QuiltingNinaSue 12-09-2020 09:20 AM

I have laid our my flying geese around the center medallion, going with a Sunshine and Shadow effect around the center. I think I like that. So far, so good. Yes, I am following Bonnie Hunter and saving her clues, but I am not making at this time. Pictures later, maybe.

carriem 12-19-2020 06:35 PM

I am so sorry I have been such a bad "leader" of this quilt along. :( It is hard to keep up when I am not able to sew the blocks too! Plus I go in spurts where I don't get any notifications from the quilting board so I kind of forget to check in...

Happy New Years to everyone still hanging around!!

Anyone still working on these blocks each week? I have my center done and fabrics cut for the surrounding border and flying geese. One day I'll be able to do some small cutting/paper piecing again!! I have more testing this week on my hand...

JeanieG 01-02-2021 01:34 PM

Yes, I am keeping caught up, just have not posted photos in a while. I have one more block to do for this week, and have the next three weeks printed and ready to work on. I'll post a photo when I finish the last weekly block, however may not be this week, we will see. I'm working on the Bonnie Hunter Mystery, and we have a lot of work to do this week.

Ok everyone! I hope you are all still working on this project! This is an updated picture of my efforts so far in this round. A few of the Grassy Creek blocks are on the bottom also. I am caught up as of last week.


CaleyH 01-19-2021 04:03 PM

Wonderful work. I am looking forward to when everyone starts piecing their quilt blocks together. I just have to see this quilt everyone is creating.

carriem 01-20-2021 02:23 PM

Jeanie! Way to go!! I am starting PT this week on my thumb and hope to be PPing again soon! I have been getting some sewing in but no small stuff.
