    Yes we skipped around a lot, because I tried to mix easy and harder blocks and for those who work(ed) with FQ's that way you will have the fabrics in all the rows - well, most rows


    The Virtual weekend is coming soon so you'll have some more done! You'll get there. Look at your avatar, you did that one too and the Challenge quilt was way harder than the Sylvia with all those tiny 3" blocks!
    Aneal,
    I think I disagree with your statement about my Avatar and Sylvia. I have found Sylvia to be harder. Yes, there were 3 inch blocks, but no curved piecing or paper piecing. I think I have now been able to get paper piecing accomplished, but curves are still too hard. Will really need to work on that. gi

    Well yes curved piecing is hard. But I love paper piecing so I drew up lots of the 365 Challenge blocks so I could paper piece them.
    Did you count your Sylvia blocks yet?

    Still have not counted. I have cut out several while I had my grandkids last week. Today I made 4. I really appreciate the order you picked these blocks, if we had started with some of the harder ones I might have given up. Name:  IMG_7360.jpg

    I'm still here also. Did 3 more blocks yesterday. I think it's been about a year since I completed any. Too many other projects going on, but am still going to plug along. Have too many done not to...

    Looking good, both of you-Giquilt and Aunt Jo!! I have been watching- wanting to get back to mine. Living between two of my boys for the last 5 months, so no room to even open up any quilting projects. I miss it so thanks for the great inspiration! Keep going!!

    Aunt Jo your blocks are lovely. I have never put mine on a design wall yet.
    Hang in there Laurafet, maybe you can find a Sew Day at a local shop or Senior Activity Center.

    Looking forward to see your blocks giquilt.

    Well I do have the fabrics put together for the next three I will do, but then again, the new Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt begins Friday... I've actually not been able to get into my studio for a month now. I had just gotten out 3 UFO's to create backings & cut batting to get ready to put on the quilting machine to go to the fire victims in Santa Rosa. We took our anniversary week trek to the coast & then my Mom tripped in Iowa & broke not one, but both her wrists. I had to fly back to Iowa so they could send her home (she lives by herself still). Spent a couple weeks there & had my SIL fly out to fly back to Cali with her while I drove her car, and animals out... Just a bit pre-occupied... But they are still on my wall behind everything else.

    Well sometimes life does get in the way, doesn't it? Wow, both wrists broken, that's really bad!!!! Hopefully she will be ok again soon!
    And finishing UFO's is great too, makes you feel so accomplished
    Don't worry auntjo, I will still be here next year

    Auntjo sorry about your mom. Like your block.

    I still have Sylvia packaged up. I have one more UFO on the design wall which I want to finish the top 1st. So Sylvia will have to wait until January. See you then! Merry Christmas��

    My Sylvia quilt top has been finished over a year, but I can't decide how to quilt it. I want to hand quilt it. Maybe an all over pattern, but all those seams would make it hard to hand quilt. Since the blocks are so small, quilting the way it's made would be short seams that I don't think would look good--especially on the back. Cross hatching? Maybe, but that would mean hand quilting through all the seams on the tiny blocks. I would like to quilt something in the sashing, but they are 1 inch wide. My frame is empty and would love for this quilt top to be the next one completed.
    Please can anyone help? Has anyone hand quilted Sylvia or any quilt top with small blocks?

    I'm sorry Redtop, I can't help you there. I wanted to hand quilt mine too but decided not to because of the same reasons. All the seams make it too hard for me to hand quilt so I will do machine FMQing. I haven't decided yet on the design. Maybe an all over or each block different.....so it's still waiting in the cupboard.
    Good luck with yours!

    I had my SBS Long arm Quilted by a friend and she did each block " individually - stitch in the ditch " - it turned out nicely and she did "feathers " in the borders

    SID would be great with puffy batting. Or 2 layers? Will have to do a practice piece to see how that's working.
