    I have finally finished my blocks. I put them together with 2 inch shasings. I then took all the scraps and made a scrappy piece and cut it in half and put it on each side of the quilt. It really looks scrappy now, a look that I like a lot. The camera stopped working so I couldn't take a pick of the finshed top, maybe tomorrow.

    I have very little left of this fabric line now, maybe I can do one more quilt lol. I have had this fabric for at least 15 years and it needed to be used up, not that it made any kind of dent in the stash, hahahahhaha

    That's beautiful! I love your work--I've never thought of using those fabrics until I saw your blocks. Now I find myself looking at them and thinking, hmm. Congratulations on a job well done, Rosey.

    Rosehf, your quilt is so very pretty. Love what you did with the sashing. A great use of scraps too.

    Rosy, I have been watching your posts in particular since this sewalong started. I have loved your fabrics from the beginning and I knew your quilt would be stunning. I decided not to do this one as I have blocks in my closet from the last swap I participated in, but I've been watching everyone's progress Your quilt is stunning!

    Rosy, beautiful! What a fun way to do the sashing and borders like this Do you know how to quilt it?

    I'm not sure if I can keep up with you all. My DDIL needs help on a regular basis and I just told her she can call me whenever she needs something done. It will be like this for at least the next year and a half
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Thank you ladies for all your nice compliments. I had such fun quilting along and because we are doing it together. I used my other camera to take a pic of the finished quilt top now. I cut the scrappy piece in half and sewed a half on each side. I am going to back it with flannel.

    I am going to quilt it on my Gammill with just a free hand stitch and will bind and post another pic.

    Hi

    Rosy your quilt look great I would have never put all those fabric together,, Here is my 11th block I was hoping to get a few more block made on the weekend and get some of the stash mad and put on the block but off cause that didn't happen, to much other things to get done around the house. Hopefully this week after work I can sit down and get some done.

    Lyn, I really like the colors you're using. It's so neat to see how the same blocks look in different fabrics. I'm also hoping to catch up this week but already have to work extra days so not sure when I'll get back in my "cave".

    Here are my big & little New Four Pointer Blocks for this week. For some reason it seems the 4" blocks are alot easier & faster to do, but that really doesn't make any sense!

    I agree with Ronda that it does appear that each week comes faster & faster...is it because the holidays are just around the corner or so many things to do & so little time to do them?

    Rosyhf, I had problems trying to get my picture to load this morning too. Took me 3 times before it finally worked. How frustrating.

    Anyway, hope everyone has a great week. Happy Quilting to all!

    Very pretty blocks, Patricia Faye. I love that light blue you used. Great contrast in your blocks.

    Block #11

    I have to confess I am finished. But I took photos of each block before I put them together. Anyone else done?

    Hi All

    i'm finaly back in the swing off sewing and was able to get a couple off blocks done this weekend. And ort out the coulours for the final 5 docks. This week I will be able to sit down and cut out the material for them and then back to the sewing (the fun part).

    Here is my 12th block and 2 other pictures of blocks up to 12 and the block that I have finished. They will have a yellow border around each block and all other blocks will be white and then the boarder around the whole quilt will be black. Well thats was what I was thinking when I started and up to now, may be it might change when finished.

    I love your blocks and the colors are great. I have the fabric that is in the center of your block 12. I've had it for some time and I think I will use it with a navy blue in some quilt pattern, as yet to be determined. I'm always surprised to see some of the same fabrics that I have bought in someone else's quilt. It kind of reaffirms that I'm a "real" quilter when I see it. Or that I have good taste in quilt fabric. lol

    Purl & Lyn, love your blocks. Everyone continues to do a great job on them. Here are my blocks Return of the Swallows that I was going to post tomorrow, but have lots of errands to run tomorrow & won't be around for most of the day. The geese don't quite match the directions they were suppose to go but there was no way I was going to redo them!

    I'm finally getting caught up with posting. I love all your blocks. Purl, that black background really makes your blocks pop. Lyn, you're opening my eyes to a new color combo--love the yellows, greys, and blacks. PatriciaFaye, I'm amazed at your blocks--you've nailed the spirit of Rosie.
    Here are my blocks in batiks which I'm going to make the rest to finish the quilt. I decided to make a smaller quilt with my Christmas blocks. It looks like an odd size but it drapes perfectly across the back of my couch. Now, can I get it quilted before Christmas?Name:  Rosie 10-13.jpg
