    Oh, y'all have been having fun. Lovely break in the heat here these days, mid - 80's with a nice breeze. No complaints!

    Anael, I just have to ask - how can a church be on the wrong side of an embankment?

    Auntjo, love those blocks. Here's a few more I churned out this weekend. 23 to go! Still enjoying them, not tired of them yet, but it's getting a little harder to not have colors in the blocks touching each other. Abandoning that little rule I made for myself, unless it's just too much of the same color adjacent to each other. I had planned to substitute something else for Grace's Friendship (G-6), but decided to give it a shot. It's wasn't particularly hard, but it sure took a long time.

    DonnaPea, you had a productive holiday weekend. I especially like I3. (Flying geese are another of my favorite blocks.)Your Grace's friendship block came out really good. You added a new skill to your wheel house. Keep up the great work. Can't wait to see more.

    Wow DonnaPea, you're zooming along!!! Love your blocks!

    Let me try to explain about the church. It once was inside the embankment, with all the village houses. The village flooded a few times and they shifted the embankment towards the village. That's the reason the church is outside of it now. When the river floods the land the people have to go to church by boat

    Lovely blocks, Donna. You are so close. Mine fabric colors were simple. I just had to make sure my contrasting yellow balanced out in the quilt. With your scrappy, balancing color is a bit more challenging, I'm sure. it's going to be beautiful. And, your Friendship block turned out great. I love love love the fabric in your Square in Square. So cute and the directional was done perfectly. Well done.

    You are really making progress Donna!

    I had started out not wanting to repeat any fabric in a block other than the background. But I didn't stick to it totally. Some day I'll get to putting the binding on and take some pictures. I'm almost looking forward to fall when life slows down and I can have more time to quilt. I use to love time spent in my garden, but I'm finding myself feeling like it's time taken away from quilting LOL!! I've got to be careful so I don't get so focused on something that I don't enjoy other activities.

    LOL We're all the same! I feel exactly like you Cathy So yesterday I've been sewing as temps dropped here. Today it rained for a long time and I did one appliqué block, then I got company. At least I feel like I've done something hahahaha.

    Such pretty blocks, DonnaPea!! You must be getting close to the end? It's going to be a stunner when done!

    We are settling in nicely into our new home but we still don't have internet service. I hope that gets fixed soon! I'm missing chatting with you all!

    The house was built in 1875 and it has so much old charm (I think!) I love it. The day after we bought it we pulled out all the old carpet because the sellers would let their dogs into the house and the carpet was gross. But under it was the original hardwood floors is amazing shape! We sanded it and will stain it as soon as we can. We are still unpacking and organizing, but i have my sewing machine already set up, lol!

    NZ...waving!!!!! So glad you are all together, again! Your new home discovery sounds amazing. That is so cool to live in old historic house and to discover those beautiful floors. You'll need to make those fabric rugs that use 2 1/2" strips and batting. that's on my list for my new farmhouse...So exciting!

    Welcome back, NZquilter! Glad the move is behind you and you can start getting settled in. I love old homes, and what a bonus to have original floors that survived the years. Enjoy, and I suggest you reward yourself for all your hard work by sewing an SBS block or 2.

    22 more for me to go...

    Welcome back NZquilter. So happy to hear your settling into your new house. Hard wood floors ! What a great find. I can't wait till you find a little "me" sewing time. I look forward to seeing more R/W/B blocks.

    NZ good to hear you're settling in. Sounds like a cool new place. I think I'm at less than 25 blocks left.
    Our guild had another "garage sale" meeting in July (along w/their annual Ice Cream social) so I of course picked up quite a few pieces of fabric at prices I'm much more aggreable to paying. Might have some different combinations yet for the next few Sylvia blocks.. H
    ave made progress on this years Xmas the past couple weeks.. Quilting done on the Chain Link quilt - now to cut and attach the binding and make a label. Top done on the quilt for my G'd 13 (a kit that caught my eye a few years back for her) - now to come up w/an appropriate back...
