    beautiful block dbl.

    QNS-the oatmealbread sounds great. Just out of curiousity, is your name pronounced Neena or Nine-a. My sister Genine's nick name was Nina(Neena), but a girlfriend at school pronounced hers Nine-a. She got really upset if you mis-pronounced her name, She insisted her way was the German way, and my sister's was the French way, she was right, I later found out, that Genine spelled with a g is french, but spelled with a J is German, even though that sounds backwards to me.

    Boy Qns that Enchilada dip sounds fantastic. Can't keep up with you guys.

    Worked on my blocks today, almost got the first one redone, too many interuptions, both sons called today, must have spent three and a half hours talking to them. The youngest called to talk about what to get his brother for a wedding present, he's getting married next month(wahoo!!!!) they have been living together for 8 years. Then The older son called to say that they are getting married at Ally's mother's house, instead of the Justice of the Peace. They are clear back in Ohio, so I can't do anything to help.

    Caroline...I wish I had realized now big the center would wind up being before I sewed everything together. I might just have to appliqué a smaller circle on it to tame it's intensity. Good job!

    beautiful, clever to improve the centre. i have finished all six!! am mad about this project, don't want to stop, but now have to wait for october's. the usual quilter's lament of running out of fabric too. however i am totally frustrated trying to keep up with the postings as 3/4 are about recipes, sickness, etc. i am glad the rest of you can communicate like this and are friends, but wish there was a seperate link just for this topic. i will start to post my blocks soon, i do love looking at what has been done and have saved the photos. sincerely sandra

    Shadoh, there is a separate link for posting pictures, this is a discussion group in this link...its kinda our style here, just as the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt and the Pony Club, both books and patterns by Laura Hird...was our style doing that. We have through floods, hurricane, and our own crisis together on this QB active board, but enjoy others joining us along the way....to share in our friendship and project...to be a good neighbor. Therefore, I post recipes to share with other great cooks on this journey, because I love to cook and quilt and read. I guess if you object you may relate your woes to Honchey as she is the leader of our pack, and we respect her as the leader who decides what appears on this site. Or just use the patterns that Mirabelle has provided on separate links, and post to the photo link provided as well. Each to his own, as the old maid say that kissed the cow...and I grew up with that saying, respecting others with different opinions and ways of thinking...knowing in my journey of life not everyone does respect our individual differences of thinking. That is all right, too.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Sandra,

    go to this link (below) for the September posts of blocks. The leader said she'll start a new thread for each month's blocks. (See, it says spike your english BOM September.)

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...r-t229346.html

    If you come back to this main thread that started it you will find recipes and other fun things. If you go to the thread for the current month (subscribe to it so it's easy to get to) you'll see primarily the blocks being posted as they are completed.

    great idea, Caroline! I may have to do a second star with your idea for the center.
