    Thanks for the nice comments on my blocks. I was able to get another one finished today. I also got the fabric cut for the last three.

    Hi

    Carriem you colours are lovely together it should make into a lovely quilt, with Christmas approaching very fast it is hard to find time to get everything finished. Hopefully over the week off over the Christmas break I will get the last 2 finished and it put together. I will be getting on for next week block on Sunday night as I and I'm sure everyone else will be very busy on Monday (Christmas eve).
    Anyway incase I don't get back on I wish erveryone a Merry Christmas and a safe and enjoyable New Year.

    Here is my 16th block easier than the last one.

    It has been awhile since I have taken the time to say how BEAUTIFUL all of your blocks are! Patti and I learned a bit ago that the 4 inch blocks are not for us . . . . but, those of you that are doing them ~ what a lovely job!

    While I was in the midst of the shingles I didn't care about much of anything. During this time I did give myself permission to stop making the blocks and make a smaller quilt. Here is my idea so far.

    Patti took a break a bit ago to piece a quilt top using the Anna's Choice block from Rosie's book! She is still working on her blocks and I am sure she will post pictures sometime along the way!

    jtquilts--This looks like it is going to be a very pretty quilt! Can't wait to see it finished! I was thinking about alternating sashing fabrics and doing a 4 patch in the corner (where you have the 9-patch), but kind of like the look of yours...hmmmm. Still have 3 blocks to go before I can lay them all out and see what I like...

    Hi Carriem

    My sahers are going to be yellow with outer boarder is going to be black, that is the plan,
    but it may change slightly when I see it all together.

    All done at last. I finished quilting it today. I did take all the scraps and made panels on at the top and bottom and both sides. I love that I used all the scraps and love the look I got. I put a flannel backing and 1.5 inch binding. It looks so scrappy and I love it. It turned out to be 80x60.

    More great blocks Carriem.
    Rosiehf, your quilt is very nice & big. Would be great to wrap up in!

    Hard finding time to sew with all the other things I need to do, but I was able to work on my next 2 blocks today.

    Tomorrow I'm making sugared pecans to take to my son & daughter-in-law's on Thursday. Will spend the weekend with them before they fly to Pittsburgh PA to spend Christmas & New Years with her parents. So we'll have our Christmas together.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas & Happy New Year.

    Ronda--very nice blocks! I was looking at the 4" patterns earlier today and can see why some of those would be hard to do! Little, itty, bitty.

    Blocks put together

    I got the 1st section of my Dear Mary Jane quilt that contains my Rosie Blocks. They all made from Kansas Troubles in the 4 1/2" blocks. Have more to do but wanted to share this much of the quilt.

    Hi
    Mary that is lovley I still don't know how you have the patience to do 4" blocks, I know I have some time don't have it with some of the small peices in the 10" blocks.

    Rhonda your blocks and lovely and I agree with you about the small pieces.

    Patrica your colours are so refreshing and can't wait to see the finish quilts.

    I am going to try to hand sew 6" block in my lunch breaks at work and when I don't have my sewing machine with me,using the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler from Elm Creek Quilts, I dn't know how I will go. I have ordered the book and hope to start in it in February.

    Mary--you are doing a great job on all of your blocks! How many blocks are you doing? How big will it be when finished?

    I got my blocks laid out today. I am going with black sashing. Not sure on the setting triangles yet...have enough of the green and the pink. Then will have the black floral as an outer border.
