    I was hesitant about posting my Big Mini...and then when I saw it downloading, I thought...well this is really a nice piece of work! So all you that are hesitating...don't! Go ahead and show those beauties.

    Hi everyone!!! I've made two more SBS blocks. I've kinda lost my sewing mojo, so I've been reading the Elm Creek novels a bit. That got me fired up enough to make two more. The A-10 block with all those Y-seams was a real challenge for me; actually ended up making it twice. I think the second one came out okay.

    My 2019 goal is to make at least 70 blocks total. Hopefully I can do it!!!

    Great job NZ. I think your blocks are looking great. I really enjoyed those books.

    Looks great! Glad to hear you are getting back to SBS. I really enjoyed making the blocks. I skipped those requiring applique.

    No Sylvia blocks to go, & absolutely no progress on putting her together since last post - a couple months?? But have been busy. Finally completed the quilting on my 13yo Gd's Christmas present quilt. I had to bring it home anyway because I'm putting it in our Guild show this next week in Folsom, CA. But I am quite happy with how it turned out. Then I needed to design a baby quilt to go w/my nephews wedding quilt (which is already almost 2 yrs late) which is also going in this weeks show - then in the mail - along w/the welcome quilt for the new baby expected in May. Then, an old friend of my now S31 is expecting her first in a month now - before her wedding, but... so had to come up with another quilt. The pattern I picked I just turned into 2 quilts - so now I have an extra. Pics attached... Have hardly even started on this winters Bonnie Hunter quilt which was finished by quite a few back at the beginning of January.. but when my sister was out in November, she finally actually hand picked from my stash the colors that she felt would work in her quilt - which is actually going to be using the Bonnie pattern from several years ago "Celtic Solstice" - so am getting ready to start that one in earnest.

    Thank you so much - it is really out of my comfort zone - or at least was... I'm happy with this one. The 2nd pic is actually the back of the 1st.

Size:  181.6 KBI finally finished my Sylvia earlier today. With the encouragement and friendship of many people on this thread, I started making blocks in February of 2018, finished them in September, and then started hand quilting it (my favorite way to make quilts). So a little over 15 months from start to finish. Many thanks to all of you for the good suggestions and encouragement. I was going through some hard things personally last year, and Sylvia & this thread was a great diversion for me - and now I have a beautiful (to me) quilt to enjoy in our room.

    Your quilt is beautiful. Like the light colored background. Makes the blocks pop.

    Omgoodness, Donna Pea, your Sylvia is gorgeous. I Love your beige cornerstones and neutral sashing. They frame each block beautiful. And the blocks stand out and shine. Wowzers, you have one big bed. But, your quilt looks simply gorgeous on it. Congratulations! Isn't it amazing how therapeutic quilting can be.

    Well I have finally gone back to work on this beauty. Grey block sashing done, now for the inner connecting sashing. Had to make one more block today as I've reworked a few to size them better ...

    Fabulous auntjo - I remember some of your blocks, when it was so busy here ! How is everyone and what are you making now ?
    I am making a Patchwork of the Crosses - but a smaller version - and some other projects including a blue work quilt with embroidered snowmen.
