    I hope everybody gets to finish their quilt. I enjoyed looking at all the lovely blocks. I am so glad I am done and it's already on a chair to wrap up in .....

    Congratulations everyone on such well-done, beautiful blocks. I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried. Each one is prettier than the last and so different. It's amazing what color choices and fabric placement does in changing the appearance of the same blocks. Awesome.

    Got my blocks done, camera is MIA (we're finishing a kitchen remodel and the camera is in a "safe place" somewere). Promise to post after Christmas.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    I agree with you Jan! Will look forward to seeingyour finished blocks! I still have 3 blocks to finish and I may also make more 4" nightmare blocks cause I'm going to want this to be a nice sized wall quilt with a bit of drama...thinking of black as my tie in color...I also wish everyone a wonderful and Merry Christmas to you all!

    Lyn--great blocks! I really like the Crazy Anne one. I think someday I might make a whole quilt out of that block. There is a sample in the book where the outer small pieces make a secondary pattern when 4 blocks are put together.

    Great blocks everyone; I have been watching this thread from the beginning and have enjoyed watching your progress; you have all inspired me to get the book and do my own Rosie's Quilt, I didn't have the time previously - book shipped last week so this will be my project for 2013. You all have done a wonderful job - thank you for sharing your blocks as you went along.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Oh, my! All of the blocks are wonderful! I am still looking at mine on the design wall just the way it was in the picture!

    Dabbler312, I imagine I will still be around for awhile after the holidays so when you work on your blocks please post the pictures for us to oooh and aaah over!

    Merry Christmas, everyone, and the happiest of New Years, too!

    I have finished all my blocks and made a few extra so I could put them all together and make a nice wall quilt out of them. I will sash them with black and add black triangles to square the quilt out. Yea! I'm done with the paper pieced part! LOL! What fun and thank you Patricia Faye for this fun sew along! While I didn't enjoy making some of these little 4" guys, I do love the finished blocks, one and all!

    Ronda--great job on your blocks!

    I got my sashing on all my blocks the last few days and bought my backing today so I can quilt this coming weekend.

    Thank you Ronda! The 4" ones are more challenging but I love your little quilt.

    I'm behind again. I was delayed at my son's when my car died & had to be repaired. So I didn't get home until the late afternoon on Christmas Eve. Today I spent the day car shopping & came home with a 2013 Kia Soul. Hate the idea of a car payment, but love the new car. Maybe I can sew tomorrow.

    I'm going to my sister's for the weekend so we can have our Sisters' Christmas. So if I don't get back online, everyone have a Safe & Happy New Year.

    Okay, I finished my little quilt top. I will get it quilted this next year. I like how it turned out and I don't have one just like this for my wall, so this will be a nice addition to my wall quilts!

    Hi All
    Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Santa was good to you. My Children all put in and gave me money to look for a new machine now all I have to do is shop around to find one I like any ideas anyone.

    Here is what I am upto with my quilt now, I have got it almost together,now only have to sew the row together. I will have to wait till get it quilted by a lady I go to. Hope to get it done by Mid January.

    Lyn--that yellow sashing really makes your blocks pop! Very nice. I too got money to go to a new sewing machine. I am planning on a Janome 6600, but if there is a used 7700 I might consider that as well. I know a few people with the 6600 who really like them. I am looking forward to options like more "bed" space, thread cutter and knee lift...also the machine has a needle threader and start/stop button....plus lots of stitches, etc, etc.

    Hi-
    I know everyone else is pretty much finished with their quilts-I'm very behind. All the orange/golds are the OTLs colors-the pink one is mine. I'm slowly trying to get blocks done. While it won't show in this quilt, I've been very inspired by those of you who limited their color palette-I'm trying that for some other things I am working on.

    Keep up the great work Marne! I am glad you showed us your blocks!

    Patricia--very pretty blocks...can't wait to see your red, white and blues all together.

    I have the sashing on my blocks and setting triangles cut. I need to finish up some swap blocks (hopefully today) and then finishing Rosie is next on the list.

    Lyn--when you were sewing your pieces together did you use a smaller stitch? For pp'ing I use 1.5 on my machine...then the paper is more "perforated" and tears off easily. I don't know what to tell you if you used a bigger stitch other than tear off slowly so you don't stretch the fabric.
