    Spider web block

    The block is Craftsy block of the month for March. It is free on their website.

    A late joiner!! I have been "playing" for a couple hours now, but finally settled on a single project for today. I've been working on Bonnie Hunter's Bricks and Stepping Stones (with the black/white 4-patches). It's supposed to be a wedding gift for my next-door neighbor's daughter. Laying it out, trying to figure out how many more blocks I need. They are not square so it's hard to judge. For a break I have binding on another scrappy to hand sew down. It is 1 pm here in Missouri and we missed the tornadoes (at least so far...) Linda

    Hi Rachel, I would love to join this group. Taxes have been mailed, attended Church, baked biscuits for breakfast... so Nothing holding me back. I will begin a baby quilt for a boy due in June... still in the designing part.. but will start with a large boat block and seet where it takes me. The new mom has a A B C theme going for his room. Will check in later...and thank I needed an excuse to get this project started.

    Still plugging away at the hand quilting..on my 7th of 72 blocks..Keeping it simple tho, and outlining. The nap idea someone had sounds good, but for me it would mean being up all night..Even tho I don't go to work any more because of disability, I like to keep as normal a schedule as I can...Will probably try to get another 5-6 blocks quilted, and then work on organizing my scraps for a break.

    boy, was today a goof or what? I thought I'd sew all day and garden some. But I'm totally pooped though did a bunch of yard work. Yesterday, I finished the top of the quilt I wanted to work on today. I wish I had a camera handy but I don't...Now, I need to dye more fabric cause I'm about 200 inches short of binding. I usually don't under=dye but I didn't figure on scalloping the edges so now I need more. And, the other planned to work on project just isn't calling me today. So, I'll do handwork later in the evening.

    I'm late joining because I just got home. I had not planned to do any quilting today; but all of you have inspired me. I realized that I had fat quarters to make a "Yellow Brick Road" quilt in beautiful pinks and greens. I am cutting it out and, hopefully, can start joining pieces before the day is over. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    I started a while ago so I'm on my first break. My goal for today - to get the mitered piano keys borders on a Jewel Box quilt. The try sandwiching it using the Sharon Schamber method with boards. - two firsts so wish me luck.

    We went to a local pancake breakfast and I haven't felt good since then. I did one block and I think I ripped every seam on it. Not sure today is my day to quilt. Going to rest and try a little later.

    Lovely!! What a fun block, and a great way to use an orphan block.

    I am still plugging along with my binding, I do not think I can handle doing the whole thing right now, so I think I'll finish this one last thread and go work on something else for a bit. We'll see. I have to have it done by next weekend, which i should be able to do pretty easily.

    Can't wait to see pics from everyone on what they got done today!!

    Cheers!
    Rachel

    Just took a break (to press seams!), and check on everyone's progress. I need six more blocks and I think it will be large enough. I mis-sewed a bunch of blocks, but figured out a way to use them by adding singles on each side of the two -- proud of myself on that one. Thought I was being careful after that, but mis-sewed 3 more. It's starting to look good (on my living room floor).

    Did my last post get "lost"??? If so, I messed up on a bunch of blocks, but figured out how to use them as is. I've got the blocks lying on my living room floor and they are starting to look pretty good, if I do say so myself. I need to make 6 more blocks, then start sewing them together.

    Here's my progress for the day. I'm really happy with how it is going together. Before I sew them together I will adjust them so there aren't matching strips too close together. But, for now the layout is to let me see the pattern. I hope you day went well.....

    Well, I started without you. I have finished two block for the Boomerang 7 block swap, a bow tuck bag (for me, I always give them away, but this one is mine.) Taken a nap and now back up there for more blocks.

    Can't wait to see some pics, especially on how you'll use those mess up blocks. I really hate when that happens to me, makes me so frustrated!! At least you are making lemonade.

    Looking great!! Is it the right size now. I think the patterns created with the more blocks just looks great!!

    Yay! I only made one bow tuck a few years ago and it was for me. I loved that purse and always got compliments on it. Hope you enjoy yours!!

Then he stomped (yes, Leo stomps) out onto the screened in porch, thinking that perhaps absence might may my heart grow fonder. No such luck, puppy dog. Now that I'm resting my owwie knee & doing my hand sewing, he's out in the living room with his dad, alternately watching squirrels out the front window, napping & playing toys with him. Oh, our fur babies are so neglected, aren't they... LOL!
