    Block #9

    Wasn't this a fun block? I am trying to decide how to quilt these tiny 4" squares. Some of the seams are so thick! Bernie II is starting to groan when she sees me coming.

    No blocks yet for me, but I have enjoyed seeing what you've all made...thanks for sharing. Maybe by the end of the week I will have last week and this one's finished...had to get a couple projects done for other people.

    Purl, re your comment on the thick seams--yes, my machine cringes at times, too. I've found that when joining the sections together, I remove the paper in the seam allowance before sewing together and then after sewing I press those seams open. It creates a lot less bulk. If it's a star center with all those points coming together I press those open, too, after I remove all the paper. Hope this helps.

    Hi Jan- yup, I do the same thing. Live in fear someone will see the back side! My Bernina has quilting software and I am thinking of doing quilting motifs in varigated thread. Black would just be icky. I have a rejected block, much worse than my humility block, to test this on. Then we will see if Bernie II is up to the task.

    Hi guys, I got home from the retreat at West Union Iowa. What great place. Lots of fun. I got 5 blocks done but didn't get a picture of them before we left for Florida, so will have to wait to see them when we get back in December. Of course I will be keeping an eye on this thread to see how everyone is doing.

    Mary, have a nice long visit & happy holidays in Florida. Will be looking forward to seeing your pictures when you return.

    janRN, love the fabric you used for your blocks.

    Purl, your blocks are so bright & cheery!

    We are going to be seeing some beautiful quilts!

    Another open seam presser. And sometimes not only are they pressed open, but some of the excess fabric gets tri med away. They stay so much flatter this way.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

Tomorrow I finish cleaning the house, and works at theology for three hours. Friday I have a bridge lesson to give at noonish and then pack the car. Up early on Saturday--hope to be in Palm Harbor by dinner time.

    The happy parents had their check up this morning. The triplets are ok My DDIL isn't allowed to work anymore because it's causing too much stress on the uterus. Check ups from now on every two weeks.

    I just got back home today so I'm a little late posting my blocks. One of my sisters & I went to the Houston International Quilt Show on Saturday & Sunday. It was fantastic! We had a great time looking at all the beautiful quilts, making new friends & shopping at the different vendors. We were both exhausted at the end of each day & our feet were tired too! My sister isn't a quilter (although I keep trying to get her to give it a try) but she is a great encourager. I came home with some new projects to work on too. So here are my blocks for this week (with the previous 2 weeks blocks.)

    Anael and Patrica--very nice blocks.

    I got the last two weeks blocks finished today. I only need 18 blocks for the layout I am doing so won't be making the basket.

    Oooooo la la!!! The blocks have been amazing! I'm behind and trying to catch up. I'll post when I get my basket one done...4" basket block is a bit challenging.

    Block #10

    Love these little basket blocks! I will be putting 13 blocks on point like the quilt on page 71. Living in a 350 square foot fifth wheel makes one realize the difficulty of finding room for even a 23" wall hanging!
