    Hi Vicki,
    Your center made the long trip to Alaska and arrived safely. It's beautiful, hardly slept at all thinking about it. Will post pictures later tonight!

    I got Tricias yesterday. I can't decide! Too many options to pick from, so I am pondering it a bit before I get started. :D

    I think it was a stretch as far as my skills go. The largest single block that I have ever done and it was a real challenge for me to do it. That's what it was all about to me, try something new and I guess tht much I did. Thanks for the kind words.

    Thank you Cordelia - It is a birthday quilt I made for my granddaughter, Jamie. The pattern is on page 64 of the July/Aug, 2007 Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine.

    I'm still waiting on the center that Cordilia sent to get to me.
    It should be here today, since I recieved a package yesterday that was sent out the day before hers was sent.
    I get so anxious waiting for packages! I'm not a patient person when it comes to getting things in the mail. ;)

    I knew that postlady was being optimistic when she told me "priority mail" would be a 3 to 4 day delivery.

    Oh, well.

    I've got Mareliba's GEORGEOUS center block for almost two weeks now. I have all kinds of ideas, but whenever I lay them out in my quilt program, I don't like how they look.

    I scanned the picture of her center block into my program and I have been building borders on it all the day long.

    But, I don't like them.

    I think for giggles I'll just post some pics.

    I've got EQ5.

    I didn't mean to upload bmp files. I have to "reorganize."

    This is the one I'm leaning toward the most ...

    I have EQ6 think I will try your idea. Have tried to scan in anything yet so guess I will get out my book.

    I don't believe ANYTHING the mailman tells me.
    But I do like how he laughs when I run to him to get my packages!

    I just don't understand.....It takes 2 weeks for a letter to get anywhere, but if it's a bill, it takes a day! Go figure, huh? Maybe I should start using envelopes with little see thru windows in them lol

    Bettelove, your quilt is great! It's fun! Are those stars applique'd on?

    I love it! I'd sit in front of my tv all day under that. :mrgreen:

    I'm going to upgrade to EQ6 one of these days ...

    I forget how I did it. I imported the image as sort of an overlay in the block work surface.

    Cordelia - The stars are not applique, they are paper pieced with wax paper. I had alot of fun making that quilt and I love it too.

    Dawn - Thanks for posting the picture of my center. I can't wait to get it back!!

    I really wanted to do a folded ribbon border but After many many MANY hours of staring at it I felt as if it needed to be stopped so the borders could continue to tell the story later. Sooo if it could come back to me later then umm I could get that done! LOL

    Thanks, everybody, for the encouragement. I had ulterior motives for posting that pic -- so I could get a little feedback. There are all kinds of things I can do, but my problem with that block is I don't have the skill to do curves. I wanted to sort of do a meandering drunkard's path on it and accentuate the circle.

    But, I don't have the skill to do that. But, that border can be paper pieced and I can do a good job with that one.

    Bettelove, I actually go to the dollar store and buy the gift tissue and actually do my paper pieceing with that.

    But, does wax paper tear away easier because it's waxed? I have a good deal of parchment paper around the house. That's not waxed, but close.

    I think I'll try that with my border.

    Cordelia, I guess it's not really paper piecing, but ironing the freezer paper on the material and cutting the pieces out.

    I like to trace the paper piecing patterns onto muslin and pretend it is tissue and then I don't have to tear it off. It stays on with the block.
