    These are what I did yesterday plus the three I finished up this morning.

    Here is the start of the quilt. This uses all the "other" background blocks. This will go on point. I'm hoping for the end result to look like this is a smaller quilt that is sitting on top of the larger quilt. I should have enough of the blue background for the sashing for the rest, so they will have the "floating" look.

    Absolutely gorgeous.... With all the colors, it looks like candy.....now I'm anxious to start assembling.... What is the width of your sashing?

    I was able to squeeze in 5 blocks today.

    66 blocks... Not sure on sashing and cornerstones but I think this will likely be my choice...

    My SBS quilt had sashing finished at 3/4" and cut 1 1/4". There is a photo of it on here, post number 1071. I didn't put any cornerstones in. Wow - you girls are on a run !!! Stunning blocks - really lovely colour choices.

    Macebaby, do you sleep at all? Wow, so many stunning blocks!!

    Teen, thanks for the group photo. I love them together, I think your sashing and cornerstones do work, I like it.

    lol! I was wondering the same thing about you - you often are posting in the wee hours of the morning

    With two snow days, I spent a lot of time at the sewing machine. Probably 2-3 weekend's worth of sewing done, especially since the next two weekends already have other things planned so a lot less sewing will get done.

    Teen - that looks very nice! I'm sort of getting sick of scrappy right now - I have a quilt that is all reds and cream cut out, I think I'm going to enjoy something a bit less colorful for a while. But I've used up a big chunk of my batik scraps!

    My sashing is only 1/2" for that part. It actually varies from 1/4" to 3/4" because I chose to use it to bring all the blocks to 7" square UF. Normally I'd have just eased in the differences - it looks Ok, in fact it gives it a bit of a "wonky" look in person that is kind of interesting. I needed to keep it narrow to keep the size small so it would fit diagonally for what I plan to do. I plan on doing 1" sashing for the rest.

    Macybaby - I am amazed by your colorful quilt. You would never know we are doing some of the same blocks- amazing what a difference color selection makes. Teen - I really enjoyed seeing your spreadsheet and getting a glimpse of how your quilt will all come together. I wish I had the time to really sit down and hit this quilt hard - I take little snatches of time as they come along. Maybe this weekend...

    Donna - it is fascinating how color choices can make such a difference. I've thought it would be fun to make one quilt that is the same block, but done with different color combinations and arrangements. Or do something like all the blocks are variations of the 9p.

    Thank you, ladies, for the lovely comments on my design wall. I'm not sure yet on sashing width. My blocks are not going to need much nudging since I've been sewing scant and they've turned out 6 1/2 for the most part. I have two that I will be re-doing or disassembling and re-sewing.

    Today, I organized my batting to use up for donations quilts. It was getting unruly and I can't concentrate when there is a mess so I pieced a bunch. Then, I cleaned sewing room/office. So, I think I'm good to continue SBS. I function better in clean.....lol!

    I am getting ready for my trip so I thought I would start designing my applique border and get these ready to do while I'm gone. So, between that and a few blocks to cut, I should be fairly productive on SBS while gone. I was hoping to get all the blocks done by end of March but I don't think that will happen. I'll still try but we'll see.

    So...I'm off to the sewing nook....hope you are all having a good day...

    Well, instead of 3 months you can take 4 months to finish..........

    In two weeks I have to go back to the orthopedic surgeon as something is wrong with my left hip replacement. The only thing I'm quite sure of, it's not dislocated. I will find out soon I hope. It's quite painful

    Thanks Dotty, hope not! I saw your post on the QB. Just try to stay in shape, there's really not much you can do before surgery. I'll let you know when I know what's wrong with mine. The right one is still without problems, had that one replaced last August.

    Ouch, Anael....I had a hip replacement in 2010 and have excellent results. I wish I would have done it sooner. The field is so skilled in this procedure now that complications are rare. At least you know that it isn't dislocated. My sister had both hips done and recently started experiencing pain but she really over did with lifting when she helped her daughter move. Hip,was very inflamed so she's on med's and it is feeling much better now. Hope all turns out well for you, Anael.

    Dotty....most of the pain I felt following surgery was related to the atrophied muscles in my leg and hip that had gone underused for so long. It's like re-stretching muscles when you go to the gym. It hurts at first but short time later feels better and your range of motion improves. I tried to stretch my muscles each day before surgery so it wouldn't be so bad and it did help. I was riding a bike in a month, which I hadn't done in 10 years.

    i finished 2 more blocks today and will post pics tomorrow. I may do one more after din din ...

    Wow! Love all the colors!! Great job MacyBaby! Looking good DonnaPea! I'm more like you-the snail just creeping along. Think I may try the idea of cutting a bunch out to sew. Maybe I can move along on it then.

    Pretty fabric used in your blocks, Donna!! That first one is one of my favorite blocks so far that I did. There are so many blocks in this project that I have never made before. It's been so much fun. I've picked a couple of blocks to make whole quilts later on when this project is done. And, I'm really enjoying the PP. My skills are improving, too, which makes me very happy. I have an idea for my applique border so this weekend I'm going to draw it out and start preparing applique pieces, too. Onward we go!!!

    love your fabrics Donna! I'm not a big fan of batiks, so while the colors are bright, I've missed my calicos!

    I'm with you, Teen. Mother's Delight turned out to be a really pretty block. I'm enjoying being exposed to so many new ones. I'll be interested to see your border idea. I haven't even given a thought to how I will end this project - it's just too far in the future.
