    Oh no! Is it over? I was looking for the new blocks this week, and realized--- there may not be any! :S

    I am so far behind, but am printing off the blocks as they are posted. Since the middle of Oct my hip has jumped out of socked 3 times and then he did a revision, 3 weeks later and it popped out again so a major revision was done. If it happens again I will be w/c bound and that is not at all inviting. On top of all this I seem to catch pneumonia everytime I have surgery , so I am down from that. Severly anemic so am working on that. The big push is to be able to get to my sewing machine. I had just brought home a new Janomee 8900. It has all the bell, whistle and cranks that go with a machine. Sew 2 short practive rows using the 1/4" seam allowance before throwing the hip out. Maybe tomorrow I will feel like trying it out again.

    Grandme26, sorry to hear your hip has been giving you trouble, sounds painful. Hope the last revision will hold. Get well soon; your machine will wait patiently until you are ready. Please share your blocks when you them done. Hugs to you.

    I am plugging along -- and am way far behind. Just looking at the paper piecing scrambles my brain -- sigh. Will try to finish some today.

    Here is my Aunt Dinah block. This one calls for 4-7/8 and 2-7/8 squares and what I did was rounded up and cut them 5 and 3, then squared up the block sections. I've found this works better for me recently. That little bit of extra allows forgiveness for seam allowances, slippage of fabric when sewing and maybe slight pressing distortion. And I have a hard time seeing that 7/8 line on my rulers.

    This week I did both blocks, here is The House That Jack Built. This one had templates, which I don't care for and I was too lazy to go out to the printer to print them. So, I cut strips 1-3/4 x 18 for each of the three colors, sewed the strips together, then cut them to 4-1/4 length. Much easier!

    I feel like I am among the living again. My hip is doing well and have built up my endurance to allow me to sew and get out when I can catch a ride with someone. Love my new machine and will be going to an applicae class tomorrow. Printing the blocks out but well start over on making them. Have dropped out of the reason I was using a specific color so now want to make them acording to my likes and dislikes. Love all the pictures.

    I know that I am a little behind, but I did manage to get a quilted mat done for my DD's puppy this week. Getting much better with flying geese. Ready for more! Planning on doing Aunt Dinah tomorrow, in the same print, but white instead of Black.

    I am going to use these block to start learning the quilt as you go method. I will post a picture of the group of blocks tomorrow.

    Well, my DH will be home this afternoon, I have enjoyed the quiet time. I did the Aunt Dinah this morning, left side middle.
    Here are all the completed ones so far. Either Double Aster or Goose Creek next. The blocks are going to be divided into 2 or 3 lap quilts for our VA hospital. Now on to house work.

    You're doing great. I have to take some down time to catch up. Between having back surgery and trying to get rest so I can hopefully go back to work in April it's been tough trying to find time to do much of anything.

    Rose,

    I think most of us believe family comes first, specially sick grand-kids. We must enjoy our time with the little ones when we have it because it might not come again. You are doing a great job with encouragement and picking the blocks that will challenge us and help us grow. I have changed my next block the Chinese puzzle first! Then the Double Aster, I just love sharp angles and paths.

    Loving everyone's blocks so far! I'm almost afraid to try the centifours pattern this week as I am still working on my points lining up correctly. Here are a few of my blocks. I have carefully edited them to only show the 'good' ones.
