    About 2 years ago I tried to install that design wall but it didn't work. It's a pity it's removed as it's a great way to show your blocks!

    I have been involved with Sylvia's Bridal quilt classes for three years. I have about 6 blocks to complete. I plan to make two or three quilts with the blocks. The one I am designing now will have an 18" X 18" applique in the center Sylvia blocks will be surrounding that. Enjoyed the classes and learned much about piecing. After piecing a 6 1/2" block doing the same in a larger block is a piece of cake.

    Anael: I finally figured out how to make a grid in my EQ5 so will try to get my blocks inserted into that once we start. I am wondering if you have made a definite plan yet about how we will start... will you post which blocks to work on each week (which I think is a great idea) or will we all just work on whatever we choose..... I'm hoping for a little structure on this one to keep me in line

    Thimblebug, that's great. I don't know EQ5 that well!

    For those who want (or need) a schedule I will work out one. There are a few options:

    follow the book
    row by row
    random blocks


    Please tell me what you prefer.

    Anael, Just remembered that I might have this book, finally found it and will try to keep up with this, but I might be a bit behind schedule to start with. I really love 6'' blocks. So count me in.

    Surprised myself and found the book on my quilt book rack. Do I dare say I will join when I am overloaded with other things? I have enough fabric in my stash I could if I can find the time. Looks like a lot of fun. I like the schedule you have going on forward, Anael. Worse thing, it would wind up as an UFO; best thing, it just might get finished!

    Hi QNS, great you're joining also It is a lot of fun and our group is still growing! I never knew you have the book, you never mentioned it as far as I remember. It won't wind up as an UFO, you can always make potholders or tablerunners

    Just checking on their site & see a page of corrections in case you need them for your version of the directions. http://www.ctpub.com/client/client_p...rata/10686.cfm

    Oh Anael you will be messing with my "rattled" mind. No page 1, page 2 page 3. Now I have to go make two new blocks. Oh by the way the computer is fixed and I am BAAAAACCCKKKKKK

    Psst DD and I started a new quilt today just because I don't have enough on the go...

    DD has cooked dinner so will catch up on the other site either tonight or tomorrow..

    Thanks Thimblebug! When you have an older book you need those corrections.

    Hahaha Mirabelle, I just saw your post, we must have been writing ours together
    You don't have to follow the schedule, you know? Just post your two blocks, it might create confusion though

    And what's another quilt.....you will be finished end of this week and need another new project!

    Thank you for the plan. I for one need it. It is so overwhelming to just look at all of those blocks. Where do I start? Well, now I know. As soon as I get Christmas off of my quilting counter, I will get started, again! Tee-Hee, Hee.

    Anael, I have a personal library of Quilt books and magazines of several hundred; among them are two Elm Creek quilt books as I really enjoyed the Elm Creek novels. Love your schedule, so far, and think its a doable timeline. Challenge will be to maintain the colorful array of blocks that you will be displaying each time...but I think my stash is up to that challenge...a riot of color. Background will have to be a neutral, blending in to 'calm' the colors...you have me thinking about the whole effect as we do each one...putting the slashing on each one left side and top as its completed. Corner stones?? Still thinking.
