    AuntPiggy, looking good, love your fabrics! Looks like you wore out that cute inspector, lol. I've got a full pot of coffee, and a full bobbin so I am starting to sew. Pictures soon.

    I must really be slow at this. Still just piecing my blocks. Think I'll stop for a little lunch, maybe the blood sugar is low. Can't include pics of my fabrics or progress as Hubby is at an ice fishing derby and has the camera with him.

    Aunt Piggy your mat is really coming together. Love the colors. Always amazes me how values change when cut into smaller pieces. We had a white cat we called Rainbow. He was the sweetest cat ever.
    Lynda Rae: Really want to see what that fourth color does to the pattern.
    I just finished the fifth step. Really enjoying the process. When I get a little further along I will post pictures.

    Ok, I cheated and opted to piece a throw instead this morning will have to get on the ball and work on the rug tonight.

    Ladies, dont push yourselves too much, this is supposed to be fun and everyone works at different speeds. Just enjoy the process.

    The thing I love best is seeing how one pattern can look so very different with different fabric choices, it is so very cool!

    Keep up the good work, I am popping in/out today, but usually every hour (gotta come downstairs to refill tea about then anyhow) so feel free to ask questions here or in PM. Great job

    Oh and I was jealous of the inspector photos, had to take a couple of my boy

    Wondered where you were Carolyn. What a gorgeous cat! Is he really as big as he looks?

    Just wanted to attach a picture. I use my phone for photo so the quality is poor but really am happy with how it's going together.

    I am done my fellow Virtual Quilt Retreaters!!! I quilted the bath mat with a variagated green and purple thread (wasn't that a lucky find to have on hand!) I pulled everything from my stash and the towel from the hall closet. Toby Bean seems to like it too! Now off to make some beef stroganoff for supper and then I will get back to work on my paper pieced quilt!!! I'll keep checking back to see how the rest of you are progressing; can't wait to see all the different colors!!!

    Emma, love your colors! Going to be very pretty.

    AuntPiggy, congrats on the finish! It is VERY pretty. Noticed that you and Emma have similar colors.

    Carolyn, hello! You have a mighty handsome cat! Thanks for putting on this 'retreat.' I'm trying to stay out of chat, you all distract me in there! I get to laughing and don't get any sewing done.

    Sewing my rows together now, while watching the first season of Downton Abbey.

    Love how it turned out. Especially the way the grid just pops. Thinking I will probably make more than one. Next time the grid is going to be the darkest color.

    So sorry for the late reply, have had a migraine for a few days and laid down for a few to ease the pain.

    And yes auntP he is that big! about drives me nuts when he wants to sit on ya and snuggle......gets worse when the 70lb boxer boy joins us.......and even worse when the 2 boys start to fight over who gets momma's lap....

    I'm at this point now too Dedemac; for Fabric C the directions says cut 36 @ 1 x 2 AND cut 12 @ 4 x 1 ..... but really you mean I need to cut 12 more of the 4 x 1 pieces, right?

    Thanks Caroline, I looked at your photos and counted the number needed. I figured you just listed the number for one of the colors. Sorry to hear you have a migraine, I have those and they are not fun. I have enjoyed the retreat today, DH did a retreat of his own in the garage. He was playing with his planner and a lot of wood. Here is what I have so far. Trying to decide If I want the extra border to tone it down a little. I think I will switch to Knitting tonight and get back to the sewing tomorrow.

    Auntpiggylpn- I love the colors! I am jealous of how quickly you did this.

    Emma - Your colors are great also so nice and soft. I need to find some purples and get them in my stash.

    Thank you for the corrections to the cutting, hard to believe my degrees are in mathematics huh


    Dede, i might add the sashing of the solid inbetween the blocks on yours, since yours is going to be a dog bed anyhow, the size isnt a big deal, but you are right the two plaids up against each other literally hurts my eyes. If I were doing it, I would add the sashing to give my eyes a rest. Plus side for me is that we can all see one with sashing,
